The following testimonials are from participants in the Integral Protoanalysis of The Scarab Training™ presented on Maui in June, 2022.
In my experience, the IPST training and accompanying exercises and activities provided a roadmap for the understanding of my human experience and mechanisms.
I feel that these teachings truly are intrinsic and readily absorbed.
This training allowed me to see past my automatic and ingrained reactions, and to realize that we are not our thoughts, feelings or emotions; but rather that we are hindered by such. I anticipate the next training immensely.
Zhikr alongside new Aricans and long-time Aricans was truly powerful, and I look forward to any opportunity to connect in such a way as was offered therein.
The Crazy Wisdom meditations provided a deep sense of calm, light, and compassion unlike any relative experience I have encountered thus far on the journey of life.
This training was an eye-opener for me. Today was like a homecoming and a return with laser-like focus on Clarity upon Emptiness. What a gift and an overpowering fulfillment of happiness in itself. It is a wonder how I have a choice in every moment of my life to suffer or to liberate myself with the teachings of Crazy Wisdom.
The training was challenging but it delivered me into a more confident and stable Ornamental State of Mind.
I am deeply grateful—Bravo! Well Done! Thanks very much.
This experience has definitely altered the course of my life in a positive way.
I’ve recently suffered some heavy transitions / loss in my life which has been extremely difficult. The work we’ve done in this training has given me access to new tools. I am now able to find peace and joy regardless of the shifts and transitions in my life.
I am extremely grateful for all that I’ve experienced over the course of this training and very excited to go further with this Work. I’m also very grateful for all of the wonderful new friends whom I’ve met here. We’ve all learned so much about each other and are good friends now. This retreat was a wonderful and blessed experience.
Repeating the training gave me an even deeper insight into my ego-fixation arising from my childhood experience and a clarity of how that experience manifests in my life. How it shows up in subtle ways and how I have been able to have a quick, detailed recognition of its appearance. Through Love and Compassion I can detach from and embody the wisdom of the experience of my process, resulting in blissful freedom.
This is such a beautiful and life changing training.
The Zhikr Opened my heart and evoked tears of joy.
I feel whole again. Through participating in the IPST I was able to regain clarity from a position of a neutralized ego, that is not triggered nor armed. Now I feel that I can re-engage with life and see the gifts, beauties, and humor without personalizing or being triggered by the external world.
I feel like I have dropped a heavy load that I have been unconsciously carrying, thinking that it was part of me!
I feel deep gratitude for the opportunity to participate in the training and for Oscar Ichazo bringing forth this Work to humanity.
Thank you for this wonderful experience. It has been the most meaningful thing that has ever happened to me.
Feel brighter, lighter, more at peace, and in love – from a joyous and detached perspective. Made lots of new friends like family. Had amazing food, views, and felt comfortable to talk, be around, and have tough conversations with everybody in our intimate training. Excited to enter society with this new-found wisdom, empathy, compassion, joy, authenticity, and contentment. Had a variety of new and unforgettable experiences to cross off my personal bucket list. Music feels different. Best shape I’ve ever been in, better recognizing my true self.
The overall IPST training was a fabulous experience. I took away a lot of wisdom about my Relative Mind and my Absolute Mind. I was able to pull life experiences from my past and witness ego patterns that caused me suffering. I truly awakened my Witness during the trainings. The Zhikr training was pure joy and the communal dance and chant brought an uplifting energy of divine oneness within the participants.
During this training I learned how to separate and witness my Relative Mind from my Absolute Mind. I experienced higher states of mind through meditation and movement. I am now able to witness my process as an objective observer and with time and practice will be able to do so more readily.
This training helped me to witness my process with the Karma Clarification which has helped me to better understand and balance the different ways my ego creates suffering in my day to day life.
Thank you for this invaluable experience, the time and space that was held for us, and for teaching this training.
We are one. This is how Arica trainings feel. One humanity, one spirit. A calmness of mind and body. Arica Maui training in paradise, awakens consciousness through the work of the school, with healthy food, exercise and fresh Hawaiian breezes. I highly recommend this Arica training and the expert team of presenters who share the Arica process with love and compassion.
So much for my head to get around. It slowly comes together bit by bit like a jigsaw of the universe and I feel that bits will come into place into the future as well.
Zhikr and Psychocalisthenics are well worth doing. Topping and tailing days that are full of learning they both enable a sharing and a personal physical training that has enormously contributed to my feeling of well-being at the end. It only remains to mention the food which was absolutely delicious, healthy and prepared, cooked and served with a generous amount of attention and love.
The facilitators are full of caring, commitment and determination to spread this important work. Having had direct contact with Oscar coupled with exemplary organization ensured this course ran smoothly from an authentic source and in a professional, friendly manner.
See my sharing from yesterday!
The Zhikr opened my heart and I was filled with fond memories of past Zhikrs, musicians and the sharing of our voices. What a blessing.
I am very grateful for the opening of my heart with love and compassion, as a result of the Work, the team presenting it, and the transcendent energy of the group. I recommend this training for those of us with an internal desire to understand our feelings, emotions and thoughts in a mature and realistic way. Thank you!
I’m so grateful for this training and the information it provides. I’m so lucky that I have had the opportunity to participate many times—each time learning and deepening my knowledge if my process.
I’m also so grateful for this community. Being a human, awakening, is not always easy and it’s so nice to have this School as a refuge. There is so much love and support. We’re all doing this together. What a joy that is.
Like every retreat, I’ll miss the people that I got to spend these 10 days with. It’s hard to believe how fast these 10 days went, and it’s truly bittersweet saying goodbye. I feel lucky to have made these lifetime friendships.
PS- Zhikr was awesome as always.
The Maui Trainings June 2022 IPST was a powerful, clear, transcendent and loving event.
The group really worked the material with a mature, open attitude. Maui Trainings chose a beautiful place to do the Arica Work. The difference of everyone before and after is immense. Now there is a lightness, a relief and a sense of Goodness that is Humanity’s natural State in all the training graduates.
Also the Arica School is so benevolent as seen with the seasoned Arica Students, their goodwill and help is so wonderful and necessary with the newer participants, it’s a real blessing to have them repeat and add to the experience.
With profound gratitude to all involved,
