Awakening the Third Eye (Meditation)
« on: January 28, 2016, 10:55:40 AM »
It seems to me a fair few people report third eye experiences during iboga floods, myself included (never having believed in a third eye prior to my first iboga flood experience). Below is some information on a meditation practice that works directly with the third eye, and it seems to yield feelings of peace, contentment and consciousness expansion for some, including those experienced with others forms of meditation. This practice may be of interest or benefit to people post iboga, for a number of reasons.

Wondering if anyone here is familiar with the meditation techniques of the Clairvision school? This has recently come to my attention...the founder, Samuel Sagan seems like an interesting guy, a medical doctor, but someone who grew a bit disillusioned with western conventional medicine and wanted to explore consciousness deeper. He has studied with Taoists and practitioners of Kriya and Kundalini yoga, and also had a five year stint of full time meditation to see how far that rabbit hole goes.

This is kind of the mission statement of the Clairvision school:

"The approach of the school is resolutely experiential. It is designed for people who cannot be satisfied only with other people's opinions and beliefs, but wish to gain first-hand experience of levels of consciousness. In short, it is not what you presume or accept as true that will bring about transformation, but what you experience directly. Clairvision therefore always emphasizes the superiority of experiential knowledge over belief and dogma."

Clairvision's core practice is a form of third eye meditation using a form of yogic ujjayi (restricted) breathing while placing awareness between the eyebrows. Even if one has no belief in a third eye, this form of meditation seems to work well for a number of people, with some switching to it permanently after trying different forms of meditation...it seems to provide some with the deep sense of stillness, peace and expanded consciousness they were seeking but not getting from other forms. So for anybody interested, I would encourage you to experiment. Below is a link to his book in PDF form, as well as two youtube clips which give instruction on how to go about doing this. 20 minutes of meditation practice a day is recommended.

Would be interesting to hear how others get on with this if you decide to experiment.
