Bio: Jef Crab (Louvain, Belgium 1957) had the privilege to study under close guidance of Masters in various disciplines and spiritual paths. Amongst them Jóska Soós de Sóvar, the well-known Hungarian shaman with roots to Siberian Shamanism, and Akira Tasumura, Zen master and world-famous painter and Ikebana teacher. At Yeunten Ling, the European Centre for Tibetan Buddhism at Huy, Belgium, Jef also received three initiations from the Dalai Lama, amongst which two personal/individual. To this day Jef also continues the study of inner movement and spiritual development as taught by the nowadays 113-year-old Taoist sage, Grandmaster Hua-Ching Ni.
In his search for easy to learn, yet efficient techniques, applicable in daily life he finally developed a universal method not bound by any one tradition. For more than 15 years he researched and experimented with these techniques around the world, while teaching them from the Middle East to Europe, to South America. Today E.A.S.T. Institute is a partner organization of UNICEF (Suriname).
When not teaching elsewhere on the planet, Jef lives and works in his La Rencontre Training Centre, cradle for many Earth Restore Programs at the rim of the Amazon Rainforest in close cooperation with tribal people, taking frequent treks and initiation tours into the interior.
The first time we met, my teacher explained that shamanism is founded on three axioms:
• What matters most is the Sound;
• The secret of all knowledge and
• the knowledge of all secrets is in us and within our reach
And three goals:
• to transform the mortal into the immortal;
• to transform the human into the Divine
• to spiritualize matter
Come journey with Jef for one night or all three nights. Every session starts with voice exercises to deepen our awareness and to prepare for the “inner worlds.” After that, he explains, “participants may choose to sit or lie down while I use my drum, voice and other instruments to evoke the guiding spirits and visions.”
