Daylesford Jan. 3-6 Meditation Retreat

Jeremy O'Carroll

Course Instructor
Jeremy O'Carroll

The Om Meditation Retreat is for anyone who has already has experience in either meditation or energy work (of any variety, be it Reiki, qigong, yoga and the like).

We will be focusing both on both sitting and walking meditation, and our aim is to practise using our connection to energy (qi/ki) to take us into deep meditation states.

Many of the techniques in Jeremy O'Carroll's CBM Meditation for Healers will be practised, but it is not necessary that you have attended his CBM course before. As in CBM, the aim of the retreat will be to help participants learn to integrate meditation into their everyday lives.

If you've enjoyed coming along to our practice nights, then you know the kind of power and learning you'll go through in four full days of our retreat!

CBM Meditation Method for Energy Workers

Our CBM (Core / Body / Mind) method is a unique meditation course for healers.

Instead of treating you like everyone else, it recognises that as a healer who can connect to energy, you have special talents - talents you can leverage to meditate better.

Using a step-by-step series of original meditation techniques, the CBM course will teach you how to use your ability to connect to energy to enter into deep - and enjoyable - meditation states.

What's more, it will show you methods for greatly amplifying your connection to energy (chi / ki), something which will ultimately make you a far better healer.

Integrating Meditation into Your Everyday Life

Meditate on RockThe CBM Method was created to give meditators a way to better integrate meditation into their daily lives.

While there are a number of wonderful meditation techniques in the world, what students achieve with them tends to be frustratingly inconsistent.

CBM is a tightly structured meditation system that consistently gets specific results that individual meditators can attest to – results that make a profound impact on their daily lives.

In developing CBM, Jeremy O'Carroll wanted to create a system that reached out and impacted students' lives well beyond the time they spent sitting on their meditation mat or stool.

He didn't want meditation to be like 'church on Sundays', which for many people is the only time they think about 'God'. He wanted meditation to permeate one's entire day, infusing it with invigorating chi and 'Spirit'.

As the name suggests, the CBM Method is built around three pillars:

  1. Our energetic 'Core' (Chakras and Sushumna)
  2. Our 'Body' (Energy body / aura) and
  3. Our 'Mind' (Self-Awareness).

Our Energy Core

Meditation Forest in TaiwanThe chakras are the key energy centres of our body.

They are like small, glowing suns that enable the body to draw in healing energy from the universe and release energy that is, for whatever reason, not wanted or needed.

Tapped into, they feel like power stations that radiate out healing energy. The more you connect to them, the further out their energy flows.

The Sushumna is a central energy column that flows from the base chakra up to the crown chakra. It is like our energetic spine and is relatively easy to connect to.

Creating an energetic flow through the Sushumna is both blissful and healing. It is also a way to help anchor our awareness during meditation.

Students can connect to different parts of the Sushumna before they have connected to their chakras but, once the chakras have been 'activated', getting an energetic flow from the base of the spine (or perineum) up to the crown is readily achieved.

Our Energy Body

Our energy body is the (spiritual) counterpart to our physical body. It permeates both our physical body and aura on an energetic plane. With practice, students can connect to their energy body. This is energizing, blissful, healing and deeply meditative.

Our Mind

Our mind is made up of two principal components:

  1. The thoughts that buzz around in our head.
  2. An awareness that sits behind these thoughts and observes them.

In CBM this 'awareness' is called 'Self-awareness' or 'Spirit'. It is the part of us that is connected to God, the Universe, Allah (fill in your favorite synonym).

Part of what CBM Method teaches is to stay connected to 'Spirit' even as we go about our daily – and, at times, very worldly – lives.
