The Culture of Life with Dr. Gabriel Cousens

  • The Culture of Life

    The Culture of Life and Enlightenment is Dr. Gabriel Cousens’ vision of both a new world and of ancient awakened times. It is a world where fully conscious humanity basks in the beauty of the divine presence. It is a world of non-causal love, joy, peace, contentment, compassion, bliss, and oneness as the natural expression of collective enlightenment. It is a time of harmony between humanity, health, and the living planet inspired by the direct knowledge of divinity in our lives.

    The Culture of Life and Enlightenment is antithetically opposed to the culture of death, defined by an ego-based, competitive, ethnocentric, greed-driven mentality, utilizing pharmaceuticals, animal agriculture, genetically modified foods, technological and synthetic aberrations, resulting in war, famine, plague, and chronic degenerative diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.

    The Culture of Life and Enlightenment honors humanity’s relationship with creation and its source. It appreciates both natural law and immanent grace.

    The Culture of Life and Enlightenment is built upon a lifestyle that places spirit at the centre of one’s life.

    The functional foundation of this lifestyle includes the Six Foundations for spiritual life and the Essene Sevenfold Path of Peace. The Six Foundations are:

    1. 80-90% live-food nutrition and spiritual fasting

    2. Prana/chi -building exercise

    3. Service and charity

    4. Spiritual inspiration through a spiritual teacher and scripture

    5. Holy silence through meditation, prayer, mantra repetition, and chanting

    6. Shaktipat transmission by a spiritual master.

    The fruit these bear in our lives is the Sevenfold Peace with our bodies, our minds, our families, community, culture, ecology, and God.

    During the Culture of Life workshop, Dr. Gabriel Cousens, MD, MD(H), and Shanti Golds Cousens, MA, Essene Priestess, Senior Tri-Yoga Teacher, will offer instruction on cultivating a holistic lifestyle to reflect the values of the Culture of Life and Enlightenment.

    The Culture of Life Retreat will include:

    • Daily Tri-yoga

    • Kundalini shaktipat meditation talks on all aspects of spiritual nutrition including the Enlightenment Cuisine

    • Sacred relationships

    • Satsang (spiritual question and answers).

    The overall teaching of the retreat is “Whole Person Enlightenment.”
