Bruce Lipton

In the following link, Bruce Lipton clarifies the relationship between energy and communication.

The E.A.S.T. method applies the same basic principle. Communication is information AND energy. It is a constant flow and exchange between living organisms.

Humans have the ability to determine this energy flow. We can change our energy, hence our communication, from inhibiting to activating by choice. That’s what we call energetic transformation.

To help you increase your energy and realize your potential or your life dream, E.A.S.T. offers practical techniques and an easy-to-learn frame of reference. E.A.S.T. is no theory, no philosophy or religion. E.A.S.T. is a toolbox with instruments that allow you to control and give shape to your own life.

 

E.A.S.T. is honored to be listed on Lipton’s site as a Resource and to include his “We Communicate through Energy” by clicking here.

Reflections

. . . the human potential is the same in everyone, in professor or worker, in artist or craftsman, in city dweller or farmer, in mystic or atheist. The human potential is the same in everyone . . .

. . . anyone can liberate him/herself immediately of all possible obstacles. It only requires putting into practice gratitude, humility, trust and softness . . .

. . . be the person you really are and live your dream. There is nothing that provides more power, health and joy than to connect with your life dream and realize who you really are . . .

… connectedness, cooperation and giving are the three primary principles for education and development. At least if we truly desire a peaceful future for all mankind . . .

. . . the greatest gift to our children is an education and an upbringing leading to the global ethical-ecological society. In other words, a child- and human-oriented education that leads to global humanism. As elders and parents,  it is our greatest responsibility to create the circumstances which guarantee this development . . .

Energy and Relaxation through the Body

“I developed eNRBi® (say Enerbie) primarily for E.A.S.T. teachers, in order to create an instrument to deepen their physical and energetic awareness. It turned out to be an easy-to-learn exercise beneficial to all, laypeople or professionals.  It is now a registered brand in Europe.

“No matter how long you have been working on Tai Ji, Qi Gong, dance or Yoga, I dare to state that these simple eNRBi® exercises will add value to your art and vision of life.” – Jef Crab, E.A.S.T. Institute founder

Below is some praise of the eNRBi method  by teachers long experienced in energy work at high levels. These techniques will be introduced in the Raleigh “Just relax! If only it were that simple” wokshop:

“eNRBi builds a bridge between East and West. Level by level it deepens one’s physical and energetic awareness, it strengthens us, and provides a solid basis for further inner growth of the personality.”

Germany:

“Those (still) hesitant to engage in yoga or taijiquan but looking for an access to these eastern ways should practice eNRBi®.” – Holger Beer, Taiji Master , Physikalische Therapie

Belgium:

“If I had known eNRBi® 10 years ago, I would still be practicing Tai Ji. It would look totally different.” –  Luc Limére, founder Limére & Partners 

India:

“No one has ever told me this before. Because of guruji’s (Jef Crab’s) teachings my yoga and life now have a very different meaning”. – Kiran Ravandur, founder Anahata Yoga Centre 

“This should be part of every human’s life”

The comment below about “Authenticity and Healing Presence” is by Wade and Marysia. S/V Pintado

After meeting this amazing family, one immediately realizes something very special is happening. As traveling sailors, it was a challenge to return to Suriname in order to take part in the E.A.S.T seminar (Authenticity and Healing Presence); this was no problem for Jef and Natasha, who, realizing my wish immediately, offered to come over to Tobago and hold the seminar where we currently are.

The two days spent with Jef were incredible, and the feeling that one is left with is difficult to put in words. “A Life Changing Experience” is one way I could try to explain the seminar; to add to this. one could say it should be part of every human’s life. The simplicity of this powerful information is really incredible; the change is immediately felt. In order to fully understand this transformation, one has to do the workshop. We not only had the privilege of taking part in the seminar but also had Jef and Natasha aboard our floating home for six days, a time spent together that we will cherish forever.

Private Sessions – Rescheduled for 2018

If you are experiencing an obstacle in your spiritual development or just want to further it, you are invited to join me in a private session.

As my stay in Raleigh is very limited in time, I will primarily advise in such a way that direct steps can be taken. Long-term guidance or apprenticeship is not realistic at this point.

A private session starts in general with an inter-vision, i.e., an exchange of information and interpretation of the root causes of the problem.

The inter-vision is followed by a shamanistic healing using sounds, during which you will clearly experience the root cause as well as the answer to the question. If necessary, I will apply other techniques, e.g., shamanic acupressure, foot massage or movements.

As time is limited, please be aware that the given information will be very direct. I will be speaking to your authentic Self. This could cause some discomfort during the session. However up till now, no one ever left a session not feeling relieved and empowered.

On average a session will take 2 hours. Sound recording is permitted for future reference.

“Life Questions” – Free at Dancing Moon

*** NOTE that because of illness, Jef Crab has canceled his visit to Raleigh, NC, in June 2018. However, he is rescheduling his trip for the spring of 2018. in the meantime, he will be setting up free online discussions like this one.  Check back to find out more.

It’s happened to you already. You are doing the dishes, or any other activity that does not immediately require your full attention, and a quiet voice somewhere in your head asks: “Is this all you are going to do with your life?”

 Or is there a way to get rid of anger and anxiousness? How to overcome these emotions interfering with my daily life and relationships?

Or some of you might wonder whether there is such a thing as a twin soul? And if so, how to meet or find this. How can we be sure about it and what does it really means?

Or is dying really the end? What exactly happens afterwards? Can those states of being or consciousness be experienced during our life? Is it in this realm that our life dream arises?

Or how can I help my children and grandchildren in this “crazy” world?

Life Questions

During this free evening in Raleigh, NC, in the spring of 2018 – date to be announced – Jef Crab will guide a conversation and inter-vision around questions of the attendees. This always from his personal life experience and with the E.A.S.T.® (Energetic Awareness, Sensitivity & Transformation) method as a benchmark.

During an inter-vision every attendee can provide answers for the whole group. The starting point is that information and energy are self-organizing entities and that one single question is an expression of all present during that encounter.

Depending on what develops, Jef may introduce inner exercises or meditational techniques to substantiate the inter-vision.

An excellent opportunity to get to know more about our upcoming events!

Jef Crab (Belgium 1957) had from his twenties a very close contact with the world-famous Sumi-e and Ikebana teacher Akira Tatsumura, a Zen Master who mentored him on the deeper aspects of the mind and the energetic layers. Several times Jef stayed for longer periods in the Tatsumura residence in Milan and was instructed privately.

His spiritual journey also brought him to the Hungarian shaman Jóska Soós de Sóvar, born into the Basci clan, the Hungarian shaman clan with roots to Siberian Shamanism. From the outset a mere apprenticeship, their relationship would evolve into a deep connection between a teacher and a beloved student that would continue even after Jóska’s decease in 2008.

At Yeunten Ling, the European Centre for Tibetan Buddhism at Huy, Belgium, Jef also received three initiations from the Dalai Lama, including two personal / individual.

In his long search for easy-to-learn, yet efficient energy 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 in teaching them around the world, from Israel to Belgium, to South America. Today his E.A.S.T. Institute is a partner organization of UNICEF (Suriname).

In this first visit to Raleigh, Jef will teach two weekend workshops—• one on eNRBi® techniques of relaxation through the body, called “Just relax! If only it were that simple” and • one called “Authenticity and Healing Presence.” Also • three shamanic evenings, as well as private sessions. (photo credit: Jóska Soos)

Shamanic Workshop & Healing through Sound

*** NOTE that because of illness, Jef Crab has canceled his visit to Raleigh, NC, in June 2018. However, he is rescheduling his trip for the spring of 2018. in the meantime, he will be setting up free online discussions for the Raleigh area.  Check back to find out more.

Inner Freedom

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 goals:
to transform the mortal into the immortal
to transform the human into the Divine
to spiritualise matter

One becomes a shaman when the people of our community consider us so. When the sick, the desperate and those in need seek us out in the hope of relief. Then I approach this from the subtle energy connected to, e.g., sick cattle or crops, projected breech birth or other urgent matters. Sometimes they just hid important official papers too well. This is all mere daily practice of a shaman regarding urgent matters of life—what we call negative problems.

Then there are also those who seek our support for their inner growth—positive problems . . .
During this 3-day workshop we will concentrate on these matters in a dialectic way. By using drumming and chanting, spirit guides, “waking dreams” and other impressions are evoked. As we share these visions and impressions, a path will become clear. A path leading us to experience the shamanic axioms in their real meaning. Participants will attain inner freedom, wisdom and purity, individual as well as collective.

To avoid becoming too spaced out, sessions are limited to 3 hours. Every session starts with voice exercises to deepen our awareness and to prepare for the “inner worlds.” After that, participants may choose to sit or lie down while I use my drum, voice and other instruments to evoke the guiding spirits and visions.

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.

Just Relax! If Only It Were That Simple

The eNRBi® exercises (Energy and Relaxation through the Body) are derived from a deep understanding of kinetics and Western and Asian relaxation techniques. In feedback and scientific evaluation, eNRBi® (Energy and Relaxation through the Body) proved its worth in the prevention of and recovery from many of today’s diseases that arise from energy loss, burnout, CFS, back pain, headache and more. It can be performed by almost anyone—without limit by age or physical ability. Even in a wheelchair.

In this workshop you will learn how to use the mind to move energy (for example, through the arms); how energy rises from the feet into the arms; maximum relaxation in a standing posture, quietly observing energy flows. This is done through exercises based on mind and deep awareness instead of outer movements. Afterwards by just practicing at home (beginning with 15 minutes a day) you will soon notice increasing relaxation and vitality. Flat shoes and loose clothing are recommended.

Today’s society requires a lot of adaptability. In addition to a busy job and a family, we see that our social life develops increasingly online; in the meantime we try to meet everyone’s expectations. Speed and productivity are fighting for first place in our lives. Reflection, profundity and connectedness come far behind and often not at all. Relaxing is more than ever a rare commodity. Relax? Easier said than done. Because apart from when and where, how do you do that, anyway? The answer is simple: anywhere, anytime. With eNRBi®.

Deep relaxation, emotional stability and mental strength can be enhanced by making the right movements. The primal condition for achieving this desired result in the short term is the focus of attention on the energy flows in and around the physical body.
This is surprisingly easy to do and to adapt to daily life. Also, how do you store and maintain the energy? Once learned, no need to go out the door to relax or recharge. In addition, it’s a lot easier to learn and it’s more effective than Mindfulness, Yoga or Tai Chi.
We called this method of movement eNRBi®, an acronym for Energy and Relaxation through our Body.

Movement is the cause of all life. (Leonardo da Vinci)

Jef Crab (Belgium, 1957) has over 40 years’ experience in various martial arts, including more than 30 years exclusively focused on internal movement. Jef is the founder of the Tai Ji school White Clouds Belgium, (1985–1994) and nowadays still leads the school in Paramaribo, Suriname.
He 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, the oldest living Master in the lineage of teachers he follows.

Authenticity & Healing Presence

Two Day E.A.S.T. Workshop with Jef Crab

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 of this workshop 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., we consciously align the physical, energetic and causal body with the Umbrella Life Field to experience Authenticity. The rest of that morning will be used to look into which indicators tell us that we are reaching this alignment in daily life. So why do we lose this state of mind? What happened to us that caused us to go astray?
In the afternoon we will explore in exercises 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.

Testimonial – A Lot for Your Money

I heartily recommend the E.A.S.T. workshop “Creating room for your self”! The techniques we have learned even have a positive influence on our children who have not followed the workshop.  Very good value for money.

I am also very grateful for their ALIVE school, our daughter is now going every day smiling and with a lot of fun to school.

A  Testimonial about E.A.S.T. from Albert Roessingh

I have now followed E.A.S.T. and Taiji with Jef Crab for more than 10 years already.

Right from the beginning, I realized that I was—presumably like most of my contemporaries—just using the upper story of my human abilities, i.e., my head. Of course, I knew that I also had feet, but I never actually experienced them.

With the miner’s lamp of attention and awareness, I started to assess what a chaotic turbulence above actually prevailed. And how pleasant it is when it all becomes empty and quiet, light and bright . . .

Continuous exercising gradually helped me descend from my head to my heart centre. I experienced the constant threat of becoming overwhelmed by all kinds of waves and emotions but also that I could choose to let these sometimes mountainous waves and threatening clouds just pass by, floating like a seagull on the water. And how I could open my heart to lighter and warmer energies and feelings.

Finally, I reached the source of all life force, deep in my belly centre. Amazing, how salvaged and [protected] I felt in there, in that warm, dark, cosy space.

Thus, following E.A.S.T., I gradually became richer and finally discovered my true Self. I now look with my feet strongly connected to the depths of the Earth; I now listen with my heart rather than my ears; I now understand the language and meaning of my movements.
