HOW DID YOU FIND THE SELF-MASTERY PROJECT? HOW WAS YOUR OVERALL EXPERIENCE?
The Self-Mastery Project)/!7v2XbtG2C an everlasting solid foundation for anyone who wishes to master his full being, and become conscious of the myriad secret ways of how the unconscious affects and is intertwined with the conscious mind. I found it to be mysterious. It makes you delve into your Alice in Wonderland look-alike psyche. At every corner of every module, I discovered a new character, which all at the end of the labyrinth contributed into building who I am consciously and unconsciously.
Self-Mastery is a program that unveils the unseen or so far disregarded parts of who we are, the magical parts that are of the soul and its full power.
The process is deeply anchoring, profoundly awakening, and efficiently makes you walk out of victimhood. It’s one of those experiences in life that are considered as “before” and “after”, not just from an internal processing perspective, but from an external behavioral one as well.
WHAT WERE THE MAIN 3 TAKEAWAYS FROM BEING IN THE SELF-MASTERY PROJECT?
The process of SM has helped me recognize my feelings, get in touch with them, and have the courage to express them and release them. I’ve always been the observer type, retrieving into my shell, especially when it comes to connecting and expressing to others on an emotional level, particularly in groups. I judged this as vulnerability and weakness, but SM shed a new light on this matter. Today I understand that showing vulnerability while being authentic enables a better connection with the other.
The second main takeaway was deepening my knowledge of who I am, specially at the soul and psyche level. Metaphysical knowledge was very helpful in explaining how reality is constructed and my personal role in this construction, which is very empowering and satisfying.
The third takeaway was the gift of Reiki, which allowed a manifestation of the connection I’ve always had to the source to become a physical experience. It allows a better assimilation of the metaphysical knowledge since you feel it in the body. Your body interacts with it and recognizes it as part of the self.
HOW WAS THE YOGA EXPERIENCE AND TEACHING STYLE?
The yoga teaching style was customized, personal, and gentle to the body. It was mindful of the physical limitations with the intent of gently transforming them. I was able to tap into my body’s higher potential. Yoga centered me, made me focused, and brought clarity to the emotional state of the body. I personally value authenticity in everything I explore, therefore this yoga school (Krishnamacharya) was a perfect fit for me. Shravi’s ability to provide one-on-one focus within the group was very valuable.
HOW WAS THE FACILITATION OF THE PROGRAM?
If I am to use a metaphor here, I can say Usha is like a lighthouse of ancient knowledge and compassion solidly anchored guiding the ships sailing in the darkness of the psyche and the unknown nature of the soul, so that those ships can reach safely the docks of a life that is mindful, balanced and joyful.
Usha has the gift of transforming complex metaphysical concepts into simple wisdom that is usable and spreadable.
She has an enormous capacity to hold a sacred space for group healing, sharing, questioning, and growing. A space for transformation.
I am blessed to have found Usha in this life time, as a teacher and friend. Learning from her has become a primary focus in my life.
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE LEARNING IN A GROUP? WAS YOUR PRIVACY HAMPERED IN ANY WAY?
At the beginning, I was resistant to open up and show the version of myself that is known only to me and not to others. However, the group energy was soothing and filled with trust, which enabled me to shed the shell layers and allow the group to help me see the unknown aspects of my personality and how my presence impacts others in a group dynamic. This understanding can be applied in all aspects of life to have better relationships and communication. I found that the issue of privacy that I initially had is in fact more of an irrational fear that was blocking my own growth. Yet, my sharing was totally voluntary, with no obligation or pressure from Usha or the group.
IN WHAT WAYS DO YOU FEEL YOU HAVE MASTERED YOURSELF?
I feel more in charge of my life, I am able to process all the events that happen in my life more easily. I am able to stop and think of the influence of my personality type on my behavior, and take corrective action before it’s too late. I am more in an observer mode than my pre-self-mastry reaction mode. I am able to see and understand my passive aggression, catch it in the act so that I can defuse it and act from a place of balance and anchor. I have grown to be more sensitive to people’s personal challenges and developed my sense of compassion. I’d like to believe that I have become less judgmental of myself and others, honoring the difference between my journey and the journey of others.
WOULD YOU RECOMMEND SELF-MASTERY TO OTHERS?
I definitely recommend Self-Mastery to everyone as a program that has the highest return of investment in the field of self-empowerment, self-development, spirituality and healing.
The program is versatile and modular that it can suit everyone who seeks mastery over their lives and who are willing to invest their most precious commodity (time) pursuing this ultimate reward.
