Notice of Change of Date

Jef Crab, Raleigh Classes June 2017


Energetic Awareness, Sensitivity & Transformation (E.A.S.T.) is based on the concept that every human being has purpose— a life-dream, so to speak. Fulfilment in life comes from following this dream, literally realizing this purpose. 

But how to know if we are following the right direction? Where to look? Wouldn’t it be great to know the indicators?

Although signals, signs and indications might originate from subtle layers of existence and consciousness, they will always become manifest in the physical world and our own body. The ability to connect to these subtle levels and simultaneously be aware of the indicators is actively accessible to us as soon as we connect to our own energetic space.

How big is this space anyway? Does it really exist or is it just an abstraction?  At E.A.S.T. Institute we know that our space is tangible and that deep authenticity is the mindset that connects us to our full potential.

During day 1, participants will discover their own inner sensors and indicators connecting them to these subtle levels. This will be done by exploring our own awareness, feelings and impressions during specific E.A.S.T. exercises, some of them in nature.

In the morning of day 2, we reach “coherence,” i.e., consciously align the physical, energetic and causal body with the Umbrella Life Field to experience Authenticity. The rest of that morning, we will look into which indicators tell us we are reaching this alignment in daily life. So why do we lose this state of mind? What happened that caused us to go astray?

In the afternoon through exercises we will explore our own energetic and causal space—our parabola antenna, so to speak— and discover how this increases vitality, creativity and flexibility. Reconnecting to our life dream is being authentic and results in Healing Presence.

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, 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, from Israel to Belgium, to South America. Today E.A.S.T. Institute is a partner organization of UNICEF (Suriname).

When not teaching in Europe or elsewhere, Jef lives and works in the 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 into the interior.
