My name is Denisse Moralli and I am a 29 year old from Argentina. In March 2015 I undertook a Tapa Brata 1 course and it was a really deep experience for me.
During day 4, when I had my consultation with Pak Merta Ada, I explained some of the feelings that I usually have, such as: menstrual pain; some feelings in my body that sometimes experience when I go to sleep like a kind of electricity in my bones; and also the fact that I need glasses. After Pak Merta scanned my body he told me that everything I was feeling came from my relationship with my mother. He mentioned that. Could be in my past life my mother had left me and in this life I was born with a big attachment to my mother which stemmed from the fear of her leaving me again.
Have you ever tried to mindfully breathe without actually controlling your breath? Being aware of your breathing but not controlling it? That trick I learned on day 2 of my Bali Usada journey.
The weeklong program in Baturiti, Bali (in Bahasa Indonesia. International classes are held in Ubud) was perhaps the most disciplined I’ve ever been in my life, and also the most valuable learning experience I’ve ever endured. For 7 days and 6 nights 32 other participants and I stayed at Bali Usada’s meditation center where we took a vow of silence, practiced good thought and positive thinking, routine meditations (about 6 times a day), and vegetarianism.
