5-MeO-DMT and the Yogic Connection: Workshop with Joël Brierre

https://www.itsallsource.com You can purchase tickets at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/5-meo-dmt-and-the-yogic-connection-workshop-with-joel-brierre-tickets-62239549167 Join Yogi and medicine man Joël Brierre on a journey through the depths of consciousness. We will discuss how the 5-MeO-DMT experience relates to Samadhi or enlightenment and what this means for the everyday householder. Participants will experience pranayama (breathing techniques) as well as guided meditation. Joël will share wisdom from the ancient Vedic scriptures that can help prepare the body and mind for this experience, as well as yogic techniques to assist in grounding the experience into your daily life. If you look deep into the core of every religion and spiritual practice, you are bound to discover a common tenet—the idea of union with the Infinite, a merging with God. The yogis call this Samadhi, Buddhists call it Nirvana. It is referred to as Fitrah in Islam and Beatific Vision in Christianity. The Hindu faith and Yogic traditions voice this idea loudly, as the central tenet in this faith is "Atman is Brahman". Meaning the individual soul is the same as the Infinite Godhead. As a concept, non-duality is present in the realms of science, in the fields of quantum physics and quantum mechanics, philosophy and spirituality. These pathways all aim to expand our knowledge of ultimate reality. Throughout history human beings have sought a direct connection with the Divine. As more attention has been focused on non-duality as a core paradigm to understanding the nature of the infinite, there has been an increased use of entheogens to achieve this state. In the world of entheogens, 5-MeO-DMT has become known as the Crown Jewel. 5-MeO-DMT (and the venom of the Bufo Alvarius toad) is a powerful psychoactive substance that can produce what is said to be the most powerful experience known to humans. What is unique about this compound, is its ability to facilitate a non-dual experience. Speaker Bio: Joël Karamdeep Singh Brierre began his relationship with psychedelics as a teenager in an exploratory manner. Marveling at the chance to explore the unexplored, Joël began training with Curanderos in Peru in 2001 where he further pursued these heightened states of awareness. Eventually shifting his focus into a deep and devoted yoga practice, he began teaching yoga and meditation and soon moved on to India to study in an ashram setting in Rishikesh. From there he traveled all around the world, soaking up knowledge and sharing what he’d learned. He was reintroduced to plant medicine in 2009 while living in the Caribbean, and began to incorporate it into his yoga practice. With this combination of knowledge, Joël now leads retreats and workshops around the world on the plant medicine and yoga connection. With over 10 years of teaching and multiple teacher trainings, Joël is certified at 500 ERYT.
