Merta Ada and Tapabrata / Intensive Health Meditation.
Merta Ada, founder of Bali Usada Meditation teaches healing through the gross (physical) body, meridians, chakra's,mental body, mind and memory techniques. The various practices include exercises, all of which are simple and can be learned easily.
The Bali Usada Meditation technique is based on years of intensive research of the ancient lontar (palm-leaf) books of Bali, teachings from respected meditation practitioners, traditional healers, doctors, books of science and Merta Ada's personal experiences as a healer. Now, through this technique, one is able to learn how to detect or create vibrations for better health.
Participants will be taught how to achieve a state of calm and focus, which is the basis for healing the mind, the emotional and the physical aspects of one's being. You will be guided in bearing qualities of concentration, mindfulness,lovingkindness and wisdom ( Harmonious mind/merta ada) in the constant observation of your breath and body. This concentration or "mindfulness" through meditation is the state from which awareness and healing takes place.
"Noble Silence" is practiced during this course. This means participants are to refrain from talking (except to the teacher or assistants) and to refrain from reading, writing, smoking or alcohol. This “silence” will allow one to achieve maximum results of concentration. Participants will be allowed to speak to Merta Ada or any of the assistants if there are questions in regards to individual health situations or on the meditation techniques.
