Training
Our Monastic/Educational Initiative
Spiritual Service, Health Service,

Community Service

Supporting you through our
Educational E-learning Project
We serve those, who want to serve others

The Original Tradition Training consists of The Great Learning, a leadership training program, aiming at Spiritual Service, Health Service and Community Service. Through the Training you will be able to guide people in The Integral Way, the Sunday Celebration e.g. Home Meetings, the Personal Health Plan and Community Democracy. The Training is based on the self-help "Study and Action" * concept. It means, that you develop your Green Man/Wise Woman Mission yourself, e.g. in collaboration with others in the Transformatorium, while being supported by us. The possibilities of support are mentioned under "Assistance". After at least having worked "in the field" for one year, you will have the opportunity of specializing yourself in either direction.

THE THREE PILLARS
Spiritual Service/Health Service/Community Service

A. SPIRITUAL SERVICE

Every student shares a basic philosophy, called "Existential Consciousness". It emphasizes the common denominator of all mankind. The existential situation is equal for everybody, independently of conviction, religion or world view. Every human being is rooted in "Heaven, earth and the (new) community", after all. Even when different people have different names for "Heaven" - "Consciousness" for the Agnostic, "God" for Christians, "Allah" for Muslims, "Cosmos" for the New Ager or "Nothingness" for the Atheist - it doesn't matter. All can imagine what is meant by it. With regard to the "earth and he community" very few people will have difficulty to acknowledge, that hey are a part of it. With "Heaven, earth and the (new) community" a broad foundation has thus been created for mutual understanding, exchange, tolerance and cooperation. People who have done the Training, oblige themselves to propagate this philosophy "to all directions".

Spiritual Service consists of guiding people in finding their Way. Having worked with people for so many years, we have come to the conclusion, that being cut off from "Heaven, earth and the community" with as a consequence "self-addiction" e.g. addiction to the current materialistic society is the key problem. It is the root of greed, egoism, jealousy, hatred, stress, burn-out, accumulation and exploitation. Hence, the Great Mother and Her Law of the Universe - death, permanence and rebirth - being the answer to the existential problem of today. Our initiative includes bringing people together in regular (weekly, with a minimum of two times a month) meetings in which they learn to "die to the old" and become reborn. The essence of Transformation is to (subsequently) fitting in in "Heaven, earth and the (new) community". The purpose is A Joyous Life! The groups are "horizontal" without any authority from above e.g. based on autonomy, while the program consists of the The Integral Way. Spiritual Service has been designed for those who would like to start, develop and guide a Spiritual Meetings. Prerequisite is a certain "level" of spiritual experience.

B. HEALTH SERVICE

During the 33 years of my medical practice, I have found the common denominator of chronic „civilization" related disease: the flow system. Instead of concentrating on the effects or symptoms of clinical disease, the diagnosis and treatment of the causes: the basic functions of the soil/nutrition, digestion, blood circulation, combustion, assimilation, detoxification and elimination/the soil proves to be crucial. Every stage has its own examination, diagnosis and a group of integrated - biological, ecological - therapies. The surprise is, that by only optimizing the above mentioned basic functions - together with eliminating as much as possible all harmful influences from the environment - all kinds of chronic disorders often prove to be partly or even entirely disappearing, while at the same time well-being, optimal vitality, energy and a balanced immune-system are restored. Flow system therapy offers every individual a simple, effective, cheap and comprehensible system of understanding health, a context for improving lifestyle in such a way, that illness can be prevented, „civilization" related (chronic) disorders and the "new risks" can be improved or cured, through natural means without side-effects.

Flow System Therapy: the answer to the basic health
problems of modern society

On the physical level we are offering the Personal Health Plan, a two months program, consisting of 10 steps with the aim of optimizing health. It is based on "Flow System Therapy", a breakthrough in medical thinking and practice, containing more than 200 natural (self help) therapies. The Plan starts with nutritional advice, followed by pro-biotic therapy (restoring the intestinal flora), fitness and sweating, supplements, detoxification and de-acidification, liver flush acc. to Dr.R.Stone, stimulation of the immune system through guasha, anti-oxidants, bowel cleansing and a drinking cure. The power of the approach lies in the combination of therapies. Hence, in order to be successful you should do them all simultaneously. Note: This (internet self help) plan is a health promoting plan. It is not meant as a replacement for medical treatment. The liability is entirely yours. Among the environmental factors the impact of toxins (from within and without), geopathological factors and electrosmog are of utmost importance.

Once you appreciate health - the positive approach - it becomes infectious. Taking care of individual health is not enough, it matters the community as well. A new slogan has therefore to be introduced: "a healthy mind in a healthy body in a healthy community". It means, that our efforts are extended to A New Health Care, a concept based on the three concentric circles of Self Care, Holistic and Technological Medicine respectively. Since about 70% of your health depends on Self Care, the establishment of Basic Health Centers, based on "Flow System Therapy" and the "Personal Health Plan" is crucial. It includes the transition of you being a freelance operating advisor to a volunteer Basic Health Consultant, committing him/herself to establishing a Street e.g. Neighborhood Self Help Center.

We train you in becoming Basic Health Consultants

C. COMMUNITY SERVICE

„How to realize a sustainable world, without first establishing an ecological economy. How to establish an ecological economy, without first taking the future of our region in our own hands. How to take the future of our region in our own hands, without first bringing order in our neighborhood. How to bring order in our neighborhood, without first managing our own household well. How to manage our own household well, if we fail to take care of our own health. How to take care of our own health, without first finding our inner balance".

The Great Learning (The Original Text is from China, 400 BCE)

Helping people to rebuild their community

What has been put forward by "The Great Learning" is part of all major spiritual traditions. They all have emphasized the necessity of both working for your own salvation and the wellbeing of the community. Now, with the global crisis worsening people of all backgrounds should agree on a common denominator, on which they can work together to save mankind and the earth. The model of the Great Learning seems to be extraordinary suitable to that purpose. Translated to the current situation, it means that everybody should start with his or her own awakening, while step by step extending it to his or her direct surroundings.

Drawing concentric circles from the Self to society

To share your best qualities with others is the greatest joy possible. Rather than spoil them for the sake of personal gain and profit, you contribute them to restoring your community. Anything you can do you do. Your family is doing the things that cannot be done by you. Anything that can be done by them they do. The street is doing the things that cannot be done by the family. Anything that can be done by them they will do. The things that cannot be done by the street are being done by the neighborhood. Anything that can be done by them they will do. The commune is doing the things that cannot be done by the neighborhood. Anything that can be done by them they will do. The county does the thing that cannot be done by the commune. Anything that can be done by them they will do. The (autonomous) region does the thing that cannot be done by the county. The aim is to reclaim the Community as the Foundation of social life, based on organically e.g. bottom-up structured layers, called community democracy ("sociocracy"). Guiding principles are e.g. subsidiarity ("what can be done by a "lower" level, should not be done by a higher"), self-governance ("Self-sovereignty"), matricentrism (women in the center of power), everything based on consensus.

D. SUMMARY

Training yourself - everybody in his/her own way - in order to become fruitful. Each of us doing his/her utmost to making progress on the spiritual Path. What "Healing the Planet" needs is people who are awakened!, who are taking responsibility for their own inner process, who are becoming more and more transparent, who are re-integrating the suppressed parts of their personality into their New Self, who are able to communicate freely and constructively with others, everything in order to create a surplus value, aimed at serving others. Resulting in dedication, competence and effectiveness toward serving the Whole!
