We choose to teach you
meditation in a soft manner, even if regular practice is necessary to feel all the benefits from
it. Indeed we believe if meditation is too harsh for westerners
it will simply lead you to give up on this fabulous way to reach inner-peace
& real well-being. We believe it is not necessary to suffer while learning
meditation ad we are very vigilant on human tendencies for self-punishment!
On the contrary we think that each one
should learn meditation at his/her own rhythm and in the most appropriate way
for him/her. This is why we think that personal freedom and choice are an
important key for awakening. Thus you will decide on whether you wish to
participate or not during all your stay at Ananta center. We are only here to
help you and guide you if you wish.
The 7 pillars of Ananta's
1) I don't want anything. I (Ego in
latin),my ego has to die if I want to be freed. All the things I'm waiting
for refuel my Ego, this is a center point in the Zen tradition.
2) I listen. Listening
carefully to yourself and to your body and you'll learn the difference between subtle mental
control and real letting go.
3) I am free. I free myself from
all conditioning, attachment, desire, passion and from anything imposed by
4) I am a Bouddha. Being a Bouddha
means being enlighted, it means that a part of me is already enlighted while
other parts are still experimenting material life, emotions and above all
unconditional love in this earthly dimension.
5) I am connected. This mantra refers
to our interconnexion with all living things, with everything.
The mind, the Ego & beliefs separate us from the reality of
Unity. It is about faith in life.
6) I love without conditions. All
the conditions we putin place concerning our love for others, for things & for life
are linked to our fears and all fears are linked to the fear of death. Our fear
of death is linked to our incarnation and its confusion with the Ego. Getting rid
of this illusion is crucial to getting rid of our fears and then being led to
7) I am. I am here to BE, not to
have nor to do.
The 5 supports of Ananta's
meditation technic :
1) Always being at ease. You should
always be at ease while practicing meditation. It is necessary that the
place, the time and the position for meditation please you. Meditation
should not be a self-imposed effort. It should become a moment of joy, a
beneficial pause in your agitated daily life.
2) Listening to your body. Listen to your
body when it speaks to you. If your start feeling some discomfort, you simply
change your position Lying down is sometimes more confortable than
sitting even if you may fall asleep at first. Rigourous postures like the
lotus, zazen, seta and so on have a meaning of course but you should
only take them if it is the right time for you. Once again, forcing
yourself is the best way to lead you to give up meditation, so let's avoid
3) Listening to your breathing. Breathing is
at heart of all traditions of meditation and it is not a coincidence! The
energetical path in human body are tightly linked to breathing. The first
Bouddha realised this 2600 years ago. Every thought can throw us off our
cellular balance. During meditation we try to lower cerebral waves
from the very agitated bêta (20 htz) to the more calm alpha (8 htz).
Breathing and even more the observation of your own breathing will
then be very important to calm your mind and your hypothalamus.
4) Neither willing nor waiting for anything. This is at the heart
of Zen teachings. When you meditate, do not look or wait for anything. No
result, no comfort, not even relaxation. Let yourself be surprised.
Don't look to the past, don't expect anything from the future,
don't try to examine the present but live the present as it is. Nothing
5) Letting go. This, for the beginner, is the most difficult thing
to do because it is not a technique to learn, it is the experience of a
certain state of mind. If you want to meditate you'll have to let go in
your life and not the opposite, this is the great secret. Too many people
think that meditation will lead you to let go but it works the other way
