Ishaya Ascension Meditation, Sacred Light Astrology
From an early age, Pure Awareness had been knocking on Ishtar’s door in myriad ways. The major opening to Higher Consciousness came through tragedy, a shared car accident in which his mother died and he was left experiencing a seemingly paradoxical joyous Presence beneath the waves of pain and grief.
In a single instant, all of his masks fell away, all fear was gone, all errors were forgiven, and out of the void emerged a vast Presence and a deep sense of oneness dawned. This experience lasted for three months, sometimes the dominant melody at the forefront of life, sometimes the subtle bass. He had few words for his experience, but they came by accident when accompanying his sister to a metaphysical shop.
Opening a book on meditation, he turned to a page describing his experiences to the letter. Attempting to return to that Presence he began an intense regimen of meditation practice while in his last year of High School, meditating 4 to 6 hours per day.
In 2002 he learned the Ishayas’ Ascension, a simple, effortless, and profound meditative practice. Shortly thereafter he moved from his native Wisconsin to Oregon, where he joined a group of Ishaya monks in the intensive practice of Ascension.
In 2004, he became a teacher of this practice and has had the great fortune to teach hundreds of people all over the world. More importantly, he was brought back to the Presence.
