The 12 Steps of THE SANCTUARY
The SANCTUARY’s 12-Step approach for Phase 1 Stabilizing Awareness could be
What is Awareness (experiential- Stephen) – object-oriented attention makes us powerless to access what lies beyond conceptual mind—that our lives are bound and limited by lack of awareness
Ground/Path/Fruition (experiential - Hajnal) We recognize that awareness is uncreated and greater than “ourselves/identity” and could restore us to wholeness/fullness/emptiness/boundlessness/infinite possibilities
The Lineage Pointing (experiential – Christopher) We make a decision to turn our energy and attention inwards and surrender over to the care of Source/God/Pure Awareness as we directly experience One Thing for ourselves.
The Preliminaries of Trauma/Shadow Work/The Ghosts in the Machine (experiential – Hajnal) We make a searching and fearless somatic exploration and inventory of ourselves.
Meditation with Support/Transparent Communication I with Support (experiential – Stephen/Terry) We open and surrender to Source/God, to ourselves, and transparently communicate to another human being the exact nature of our being. (+ “Awareness is…” exercise/The SANCTUARY Buddy (with participant)/Trinity (leader as support) Program)
Breathing Meditation/Transparent Communication II with Support (experiential – Christopher) We are entirely ready to surrender with total trust, our being through divine friendship to another.
Meditation without Support (experiential – Stephen/Terry) We have a felt experience of how awareness of our obstacles and allowing them liberates them.
Meditation on loosening and tightening awareness through the breath (experiential – Hajnal) We open transparent communication to our closest relationships, foster unconditional love through loving kindness/Tonglen practices and ask forgiveness from those we have harmed through compassionate awareness practices, and became willing to be open and present in all moment-to-moment life situations.
Self-inquiry (experiential –Christopher) – Introduction to the Vipassana Practices of all ancient traditions – We see into the Nature of Mind and Awareness and make direct experience of moment-to-moment awareness our primary awakening process.
Looking at the Nature of Mind (experiential – Stephen/Terry) We continue to deepen our personal practice on and off the cushion including seeing into our misconceptions
Investigating Thoughts, Feelings and Perceptions (experiential – Hajnal) We continue to reveal the mystical power of contemplation, prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with Source/Pure Awareness/God, as we understand this experientially, trusting in awareness to provide knowledge and wisdom beyond conceptual mind of the Divine will/Life Flow for us and the power to carry that out.
Stillness and Movement (Transition from the individual to the collective – introduction to Collective Awareness Phase 2 Program – all of us/Stephen) Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of this process, we look at the possibility to carry this as a collective, consciously, into community, and to practice these principles in all areas our lives “in the marketplace”.
