EMBRACING the UNDERGROUND

 

TANTRIC TRANSFORMATION OF INNER SHADOW
7 – day ADVANCED RETREAT
28 February – 6 March 2020, Holland
Facilitation: Zenon D. Dorje with the Team

 

 

We live in a time of great change and awakening of consciousness on a mass scale. We recognize immensity of wounds and traumas accumulated over the past millennia by all humanity and how this affects individuals.
We see how much work is needed to purify and transform negative emotions. We begin to understand that it is not enough to concentrate on positive experiences, trying to keep on high vibrations. That we also need to bend over our own personal shadow, unresolved issues from the past, to release what has been suppressed, rejected or wounded within us.

More advanced part of humanity is in process of descending the spirit into the body. Bringing the light of consciousness into the dark, animal, dense levels of the body. The purpose of this journey is to unite into One, unite what is lowest with what is highest. Achieving the spirituality of the body. The fullest expression of embodied Spirit.
Our body is a reflection of the entire universe. It accumulates the record of experiences of the collective evolution of not only this planet. This body is a living library, an accumulation of DNA from many other worlds and dimensions. This is because the richness of life, which exists in the entire cosmos, penetrates everywhere and melt with each other, moving information streams through dimensions and worlds.

 

Personal underground structures

Going down into the dense dark regions of our body, we discover a lot of suppressed emotions, wounds, a history of suffering and deep layers of lust, anger and primordial, animal power. We confront ourselves with the instinctive, uncivilized, wild sides of ourselves. Parts within us that are rejected, not accepted by the environment and ourselves.
The inner space of our body hides dormant structures that most people usually do not have access to.
Energetic structures that arose from accumulated personal experiences at different times, in different bodies and in different dimensions. Not only human and animal bodies. The personal level permeates with the collective level. Our DNA stores evolutionary relics from various stages of evolution. In these layers of the body, the primeval, wild power is dormant. We know how great physical strength animal bodies have. This force exists within us, contained in internal layers.

Usually these structures are so deeply suppressed and cut off that we do not have contact with them. Separated, they lead a hidden life within us. They are often identify with their suffering, holding resentment. Usually they accumulate a lot of suppressed anger and lust.
From these hidden aspects rise mechanisms of the inner shadow: victimhood and perpetrator, aggression, revenge and self-destruction.
Even if they are dormant and inactive, they lower our vibrations. They can become a source of depression and internal disorders. Some of them are not completely dormant. They want to satisfy their desires in the night, when our consciousness is asleep.

 

Transformation of the Inner Darkness

Is it possible that we are happy when someone is suffering around us? Usually not. And what if a part that is hidden inside of us is deeply unhappy and suffering? A part of us that is condemned and rejected. Hiding in shadow or darkness, not to be hurt again. As long as we have inside of us suppressed parts, that suffer, hate themselves and everything around them, there will be lots of problems.
Those aspects will sabotage our lives, destroy what we have built.
Liberating inner structures, we also unlock our frozen, disconnected power. The power contained in dark, dense structures which are holding old wounds, suppressed anger, lust, guilt and shame.
By learning unconditional acceptance, we can raise these structures up, feeding them with bliss and love. During this process all the dark, negative aspects of us can be accepted, saturated with light and connected with the heart. They will be gradually connected with the higher aspects of our self, joining the stream of high vibrational energy.
After integration, they will become our guardians and allies.

 

Temple space of the Great Mother

These internal structures below the level of the first chakra were discovered many years ago in personal experience. They were called Underground. Over the years of exploration and practice, we have developed effective methods to heal and integrate them.
Methods include tantric practices and ceremonies and ritual body work sessions from the temple arts tradition of matriarchy.
During the workshop, we will create a sacred and safe space for the activation  and transformation of our underground structures.
At the center of this process is the spiritual female archetype of the Great Mother, who transmits unconditional love. Feeding and embracing all her children without evaluating or setting any conditions.

Testimonials from previous participants:

”A couple of days ago I said goodbye to this amazing group in Poland. We spent a week together diving into the underground, getting to know and bringing to light supressed and shadow parts of ourselves. We gave space to bring them up and to the light, to feed dark aspects of ourselves. Acknowledging them, getting to know these beings, seeing these structures… It was a deep journey to the dark and the underground, but how beautiful to see how much light and love was present in the group and in between the sessions we shared. ✨ I saw people radically change and transform, from within. To see how everything shined through… I feel humble 🙇‍♀️ to be able to witness all these deep processes we went through together in 1 on 1, 2 on 1 and group sessions. Bringing together our power 💪, courage 👊and love 💞!
We worked with our personal underground but we also touched layers of the collective. Getting into contact with this, feeling all what is there, releasing what is needed is such a profound work.” 🙏 Griet 11 April 2019


”Sitting today on a sunny day, reaching back to the past experiences during the first ever retreat “Embracing Underground” – Tantric Transformation of Inner Shadow, together with a great team of House of Tantra in Poland and Zenon D.Dorje(facilitator and our great guide into this journey), makes me reflect.
There was always the darkness and the shadows, that I was aware of, but couldn’t embrace it, couldn’t accept it, couldn’t love it. In many of my life situations, I tent to suppress it and reject it. During 6 days of the retreat, I was able to work deeply on many layers with different emotions, energies, and went deep down to bring my Undergrounds to the light. I can see now, how much work is needed to purify and transform negative emotions. It was a deep journey, with the purpose of unite what is lowest with what is highest into One. To feel, that there is no separation between myself and underground. There is a full, unconditional acceptance.
There is so much power within myself, which is manifesting on a daily basis as a Divine Force.”

”Two weeks ago I was part of the workshop Underground. This workshop assisted me to ground me on a deeper layer within myself. By allowing myself to open up to my underground and release unknown trauma but also creatures voicing my underground I didn’t allow so far I feel more aligned and empowered.
The procedures in the workshop create a safe space for inner research and brings everything to the heart. The workshop assists to raise a huge love and benefit for all sentient beings. Thank you Zenon and team for your committed assistance.”
Joanne, 20 April 2019


The Embracing Underground workshop gave me access to the parts within myself that I was finding repulsive and hidden in everyday life. Thanks to this workshop I could finally shine the Light on those parts bring them up and accept them making myself more whole. For 6 days the journey was and I found myself exploring shadowy valleys of my being which when approached became my allays. All of this was done under a superb guidance and in a save zone created by Zenon and the team.
I recommend this workshops to anyone who wants to challenge himself and become more whole, grounded and accepting more of whatever parts one might feel inside, so that one can become more loving human being.

“The Embracing Underground it’s a retreat that took me into the most distant depths of myself. For 6 days I have been looking into the areas of my great darkness, fear, anxiety and unconsciousness. When I reached my repressed and forgotten places I find myself better and better. Every day I was refilled myself with more courage and went deeper into what I hid in front of me. I reached the darkest emotions, thrown off the next masks and became more and more pure. Everything that I have not wanted to contact before it turned out to be a source of powerful and wisdom. I feel that this was the start of work with my underground. Thank you Zenon and the Team for creating very safe space where I could open and take care for myself”. Pola Ina, 18 May 2019
