Pineal Gland Meditations

Many traditions and cultures have revered the pineal gland as a gateway or access point for wisdom, insight and connection to our higher self, or larger awareness. Symbolism relating to the pineal gland can be found in statues and art work within many traditions including buddhist, hindu, sumerian, egyptian and greek cultures. References to the pineal gland can even be found within the vatican. 

Until relatively recently the function of the pineal gland was a mystery in western science, and the pea sized gland was thought to be a vestigial structure (a structure that has lost all or most of its original function through the process of evolution) like the appendix.

Within the last few recedes it was discovered that the pineal gland is responsible for the production of melatonin, which affects our circadium rhythms and sleep cycles. Melatonin is taken as a supplement to aid insomnia and produces and increase in lucid dreams and out-of-body experiences. It is also suggested that the pineal gland produces dimethyltryptamine (DMT), which is found in almost every living organism on Earth. DMT has become known as ‘the spirit molecule’ due to its link to mystical and spiritual experiences.

Centuries before these discoveries the philosopher Descartes saw the pineal gland as the "principal seat of the soul", the ancient Greeks saw it as our connection to the "Realms of Thought", the ancient Egyptians called it the "Sun" or "Eye of God" and in many eastern traditions including Hinduism and Buddhism it has been seen as the gate between the physical and spiritual realm, corresponding to the third-eye and crown chakras.

The workshop will include

Meditations to connect with the pineal gland and open the third-eye and crown chakras.

We will also be discussing physical impact of environmental and lifestyle factors  and how to support and promote a healthy pineal gland.
