Secular monasticism. That is “The Way” for me as Monk Ken, living in the day to day mundane world, as a householder, and involved with various projects. My main project is outreach & support and empowerment for families living with severe mental illness. Back on March 09, 2017, some five years ago, I began to use this phone app (Insight Timer) to aid my meditation practice. So far I have use it for 1876 days. Today is a milestone of sorts (200 consecutive days). This is tricky because there have been the odd days during which I am “busy and distracted” with the life issues or a car trip, with something out of my routine, out of the ordinary which allows me to forget to use the app until just after midnight. I am a bit of a nightgown. Then, alas, I have missed using the app that day. Long ago I flirted with TM, Transcendental Meditation. They recommend meditation at regular times in the day and twice a day. This requires a certain degree of devotion, dedication and perseverance. Self-mastery, if you will. Today I am celebrating 200 consecutive days.
This Autumnal Equinox season (September 22, 2021) is called “The Great Passing.” This is the most sublime of the initiations. Theosophically it is written from the Lomaland community that existed in San Diego, CA: “Death is rebirth on a higher sphere.” Our life-atoms each find their proper path for further experience through almost innumerable transmigrations. From Ancient Egypt, Orisis is one key for understanding the journey of various centers of our human consciousness in the spiritual “obligatory pilgrimage.”
Here is a concise and insightful modern video story about this, titled “The Egg.”
Meditation, Spirituality and Mental Health
Feeling directionless in life? Lost your purpose? Conflicted about which is the right choice for you? Stressed by the battlefield of corporate, business or work-life? Then come to a workshop and rejuvenating retreat and study of the Bhagavad Gita. This will be thru the lens of the “Hero’s Journey” and CBT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Monk Ken, AKA Dr Ken, an esteemed clinical psychiatrists specializing in psychosis and schizophrenia with a modern psychodynamic background will lead a 4 day session at the Far Horizons Theosophical Camp at 7200 ft. in the Sierra Nevada mountains this early August 2021. Dr Ken Campos will also bring to focus his scientific neurochemical laboratory research background, along with decades of his own spiritual pursuits and disciplines to this interactive workshop in the beautiful mountains and pine trees with nearby giant sequoia trees as well.
Far Horizons is thought by many clairvoyants to be a vortex like setting, a crossing of Ley lines, too.
