  6. Soul Gathering, Velusia & Avikal, 20-27 April 2025

We have brilliant and efficient essential resources that are meant to guide and support us in this journey.  

When we open to our Essence, we are at the same time opening to the mystery of Being as it unfolds in the Here and Now.

After more than 20 years of teaching and personal exploration, respectively, Avikal and Velusia have completely redesigned the Dimensions of Being training. The training has always been directed toward in-depth understanding and embodiment of essential qualities, however, now we wish to acknowledge the intensity of the era we are living in, as well as your capacity to view yourself and the world that is now manifesting with the understanding that you are already whole.  

Instead of working towards a completion point, we will begin with the recognition of the totality, and strengthen our connection here.  

This will support every aspect of Being that we work with in the future in a dynamic way.

1. The Focus – Essence is a living manifestation of our True Nature. Resting in the recognition of non-separation, full participation in our own life becomes majestic, yet simple.

2. Integration and Embodiment – Living the truth of our everyday unfoldment begins to absorb our attention into itself.. enlivening and freeing us of all concepts of self. Yes, our precision and openness set the tone, but the song itself is not our doing. Here we can begin to dance with the universe.

3. THE STRUCTURE. Even though we present the Dimensions of Being as a training, it is composed of complete modules that can be accessed individually according to individual needs and possibilities. We offer a sequence that we know is efficient and useful in many ways, but we leave it to the individual to choose whether to follow it or not.  

4. Content – We have revised the content removing any part that could weigh down our direct perception of these blessed states of Being. It is Essence that is the true teacher, and our work, for the most part, is to be together here, meeting what comes through with our deepening contact. This creates the environment for individual exploration and absorption.

5. The Methodology – Self-inquiry remains the main methodology. This form of exploring, literally everything, beginning with yourself, is the adventure of discovery of the living Truth in the present moment. The whole process of inquiry includes the conceptualising that continues to develop and refine our capacities, with natural transparency of sharing ourselves with each other. 

Together with you we will co-create an environment that informs and supports full wakefulness and all that this wakefulness brings through for you personally. For us all to stay responsible to this commitment, it is important to have a one to one session between 2 and 6 weeks after each retreat. You are also invited to contact either Velusia or Avikal to set up a chat before the Stupa if you would like that.

Training modules and dates

About this module

The Stupa is the Essential vehicle that replaces the personality structure. The Stupa becomes our real structure and is much more than what we could have imagined.

We want to begin with the presence and amazing energy of the Stupa so that our structure will not keep setting its course by what it thinks is possible based on the past, or on our various modulations.

Buddhists refer to the Stupa as The View, because it can shift our perspective radically to align with truth, and at this level, the alignment is not only exactly what we want, even if we didn’t know it, but it can be exhilarating as well as energising and satisfying.

The main themes of the Stupa are:

  • Totality
  • The capacity to sense and utilize all of our resources and essential qualities
  • Manifesting what we wish from the Being level. Actualize and create
  • Experiencing our natural authority and mastery, which is true adulthood

True Nature continues to unfold, without limit, in original and unique ways.

About this module

Diamond Guidance is a name given by mystics to a dynamic sense of unfoldment that happens when the gift of spirit meets our unburdened receptive heart. When that almost magical turn of the heart occurs, there is a quickening that keeps re-newing our orientation to loving the truth. Our day to day attunement to guidance keeps us fresh, curious and connected.

Baudelaire speaks of a ‘poetic state of health’.. and this is it.

About this module

As we understand and uncover more and more how we have identified with a false sense of self, conditioned by family and culture, and how this identification is based on the fear of survival, two questions become fundamental: “Who am I?” and “What is the meaning of my life?”

The Authentic Self is Being experienced as our True Identity. You recognize how it is obscured by the false identity that we call “I”, your identification with it, in order to survive and feel special: what is generally called narcissism. This illusion of being special ends up hiding the reality of being unique.

About this module

This is the very intimate and precious experience of YOU as the personal manifestation of Essential Nature. We refer to is as Essential Individuality, Embodied Uniqueness.

All the different qualities of Essence: value, power, will, strength, peace, loving kindness, joy etc. exist as impersonal, ever present universal qualities.

As you realize your true nature and align yourself with Truth, all the qualities begin to integrate in you, and you develop and evolve into an integrated human being. The Truth becomes embodied in your flesh, and you move towards becoming a true manifestation of love and awareness.

About this module

Our Soul Gathering is a co-created field of meditation and essential circulation.

After some years, our inquiry becomes a refined spiritual practice, touched by grace.

In this retreat we move within timeless ease and fluidity, bringing whatever it is our souls find to explore, and still return and abide in the vibrant lightness of Being.
