    The Sedona Experiment

    Want to participate in the second Sedona Experiment?
    What to expect/know/prepare for:

    12 Days of non-stop instruction, reflection and meditation.
    Meditations and reflections are both guided by Bentinho as well as held in silence.
    Meditations are held both in group settings as well as by yourself.
    Morning and evening sessions will be held at an indoor venue. Silent Meditation Afternoon sessions will be held at an outdoor venue.
    Attend at your own discretion and be ready: Your outlook on life will never be the same again after this retreat--many illusions and delusions will be destroyed over the course of these 12-days of bootcamp style guidance and attendance.
    Fall utterly and completely in love with your innermost Self, and be prepared to lose interest in trivial and external things.
    Depending on the person, the first 3 or so days may include some inner battle with the mind, but due to the consistency of the guidance provided and the container and environment held, you will almost certainly pass a threshold and meditation will become a joy for you afterwards, taking your deeper at an accelerated pace each day onwards.
    You will not recognize yourself at the end of this event.
    There will be 2 or 3 solo-days as part of this event as well, where we don't or only for part of the day come together with everyone.

    General Preparations/Recommendations:
    Community interactions will be allowed at certain days, but strongly advised against on other days.
    For the outdoor afternoon sessions, we recommend you bring clothes in layers, a light-weight, warm jacket and/or a blanket, a meditation cushion (or a folding/camping chair if you cannot sit yogic style for 1-2 hours).
    Be capable of sitting comfortably in a meditation position (whether in chair or on the floor) for 1-2 hours.
    We recommend daily dry fasts (no food OR liquids) of at least 12 hours, and daily food fasts of at least 15 hours. We recommend concord grape juice with a tablespoon or two of lemon juice (pasteurized for both is good) mixed in to break your daily dry fasts, and to hold you over until you consume food, if at all.
    If you decide to do a full fast while attending this event we only recommend the Master Fast System for this purpose.
    When/if you do eat we recommend keeping it to raw fruits and/or salads, at least until the evening meal (which is after the last session). Maintaining daily mini-fasts and eating lightly during the day will help most people greatly in their meditations.

    Recommended books to read before and/or during the retreat:
    1) The Direct Means to Eternal Bliss - Michael Langford,
    2) The Seven Steps to Awakening (composed by Michael Langford, but authors are Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta, and others)
    3) The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte

    Recommended recordings to prepare for the Sedona Experiment #2 (all can be found on www.BentinhoMassaro.tv, or click titles below) :
    Immersion in The Blissful Self - Asheville Weekend Retreat
    The Eye (I) of the Vortex - 5 Day Sedona Retreat
    Any of the Self-Realization School seasons and sessions

    The Cosmic Giggle (full film)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3lhOX1aY5DE


    The Cosmic Giggle is an experimental documentary film that explores the human energy field's dynamic relationship with our environment. Naturally as human beings, we are connected to a vast network of fluid information inherent to the world around us. When we are children, we are open to this field through simple innocent observance, but because of our collective evolution towards a dominating and fixated worldview, this perception becomes veiled. This film reveals how this process takes place and provides keys for returning to a more primal and authentic experience of our reality.

    Always Here by Kirtana

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYkRPBcOHOY


    The Latin word for NOW is IAM.
    NOW I AM.

    The Present is a GIFT.
    When you are in the present you are in the gift of being aware of your eternity.

    Sometimes when we are in the present we feel like nowhere.
    But what is nowhere ? Its NOW HERE.

    The present is timeless because it is PRE SENT
    When we are aware of the present when are aware of our eternity which is always HERE.

    NOWHERE is when you are NOW HERE. You are not in the past or the future. This is why the present is a gift... you are NOW HERE.

    Love Always

    " Once upon a moment, there became presence. And then it becomes greatness, again and again, as it lets go to nothingness, again and again. For this presence does not concede to tomorrow, or hold onto yesterday. It allows the moment to meet the Self in its eternal essence. Within the meeting of all that is from the a place of stillness reveals the totality of truth only found in the heart of experience itself. The journey of creation is without destination. It is only a moving forward in a consistent new direction as the winds shift from the north to the south, from the east to the west. One can get lost in the tempest of chaos as the world changes ever so. Yet it is the master that lands thyself in balance every moment onward, with the crown in heaven, and the root on earth, always without seeking, always receiving, that blessed silence in the eye of the storm. This is the path of the divine. Not of many, but of one. For there is only one truth that thy master walks. All other paths are stories birthed from mind outside the origin of the Self. Thus deviating from the infinite beauty that always wishes to create upon itself. This is the journey of seperation which has only one destination: To return home in the being of no destination. Ever here, ever now. And then the presence came to rest, happily ever after. Only to become once again."

    Kindly gifted by Auriel Aeon

    A true friend stays present with you
    in times of sorrow.
    She listens deeply, feels what you feel,
    but never tries to fix or change you.
    She knows you are not broken.

    Be a true friend to yourself.

    It is the nature of separation to have within it pleasure and pain, joy and difficulties; and no matter how ‘pure’ we live, it is still a reality. Learning to accept difficulties, not necessarily in a passive way, but simply accepting pain as part of creation, we can then use it and dance in it just as we do with pleasure. This develops equanimity, which brings balance and the beautiful valuing of presence as essence.

    Individuality has a quality of separation in it, and yet without individuality there is no manifest universe. As we develop this equanimity, we open into a space within everything that was always there, however we notice it more and this becomes a tangible part of our daily awareness.

    In this simplicity amidst outward complexity; there is a fulfillment and the boundaries of our individuality loosen. We feel that the whole multi-dimensional universe is us, or said in another way, we are in an intimate relationship with the whole universe. Letting go of one reality of separation, pain and pleasure, we embrace another.

    In this inwardly found reality, the deeper current of pain and separation of many beings (along with the love and joy) lives is in us as a fabric of creation which we breath and participate in; of which outer events are the tip of an iceberg. So, there is no escape, other than embrace.

    In this embrace, a deep and profound Love flows and the Wisdom that is inherent in every situation and space is freely available as an innate quality of the fabric itself, of Consciousness. The truer meaning of ‘sambhogakaya’, the place of enjoying bliss; is that it is the buddhic realms of unbound experience where our expanse and appearance is unlimited. A bliss of space and relationship. Yet, it is also the ultimate experience of being bound in pleasure and very subtle grasping. One that requires no food, or outer support, or even a body when awake enough.

    I have found that the love which is our universe, is always victorious, as it is a joy of non-separation in apparent separation, and we heal in remembering that all our difficulties are born on this fabric of love which despite everything we place upon it, cannot help but remain true to itself.

    There is an alive formless rest and totality beyond all of this, even space itself, that is a true freedom. It always is, and it is a universal and obvious experience then when this awareness awakens, in truth we never left it. Yet, even anchored in this way, the reality of separation and it manifesting nature of pleasure, pain, joyful-love, beauty, difficulty, and the myriad apparent qualities do not go away because it is the multi-dimensional universe itself.

    This is what true wakefulness is, as itself, and the endless, timeless journey. This is what the consuming journey of sadhana is about; the dynamic gaining of that clarity while simultaneously traveling through the realms and resting beyond. Effort and effortlessness. It is why yogis and yoginis, human and otherwise meditate in a deeper sense of the word, even when they are already in meditative equanimity, and why a mature person has a natural cheerful response, transcendent embrace, and a non-avoidance of life by being ordinary.

    May your sadhana and your sacred moments be beautiful, victorious, and your uplifting light a blessing for all beings in its clarity, love, and radiance; inspiring us all on our journeys together.

    The title is from an article which sprang from the realization that one only becomes ‘aware of Awareness’ by the ‘things’ appearing in it. So I know that Awareness is present because I am aware of my thoughts and sensations. This led me to compare Awareness to an infinite lake, reflecting the sky, which is only apparent when ripples appear in it, at other times it is indistinguishable from the sky – see cover photo.

    The Illusions of Reality & The Basics of Sacred Geometry (The Patterns of Consciousness) Pt1

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zoqTNpok6zw


    This video is the first of a series where I will be demonstrating various concepts such as sacred geometry, healing, spirituality, quantum theory, and general alternative out-of-the-box thinking. Here I will be talking a little about geometric patterns and how everything in your life can be reduced down to a geometric structure. I will also be explaining a little about how these concepts can heal and transform your problems and situations in life but will be explaining this in much further detail in future videos. This is basically a foundational video for future videos to come.

    The Illusions of Reality & The Basics of Sacred Geometry (How to Heal with Geometry) Pt2

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fpJ-O3FAeyI


    This video is a follow-on from my last where I explained about the basic core concepts of sacred geometry. Here I explain how to utilise geometry to heal your body mind and emotions; but this concept o far beyond the body. Find someplace quiet where you can relax, sit back and enjoy :)

    The Subjective Nature of Reality


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOREo9BjTFc


    This is the 3rd video in my series where I will be talking about the subjective nature of reality, personal perception and how this creates problems in our every day life. I will also be expanding on what I have already shown you in my previous videos by providing you with another powerful exercise for you to try. Enjoy! :)
