Essence is the very fabric of our Soul. When we experience our Essence we have the sense of wholeness. In contrast, the lack of contact with our Essence gives us a sense that we have lost our way home, that we have lost our paradise. When we are born, we are full of Essence and free of any conditioning. As time passes and childhood programming settles into our system, we lose the connection to our Essence. We then live in a paradoxical state of existence: we are Essence and yet we do not know it.
The Lataif are the first manifestations of Essence. They are the texture, the material from which the Soul is made of, our Essential qualities. The word Latifa (singular) in Arabic means the oil that burns in the lamp. These fountains of Essence are located in different parts of our body. They are our innate resources that we come in touch with when we begin to experience ourself beyond our conditioned mind and ego defenses. They are fundamental human virtues such as love, compassion, courage, wisdom, joy, presence, innocence and others. If we picture our True Self as a shining sun, then the Lataif are like its rays, each ray a different quality the sun is emanating. Each Latifa is associated with a color and has different aspects to it.
The Red Latifa is the Essence of courage, strength, heat, aliveness, vitality and passion for life. It gives us a sense of expansion and makes us contactful. It brings the sense of rebelliousness that can ignite the Spirit. The absence of Red in our system translates into a lack of energy, depression and apathy. We cannot move, we fear life and lack the strength to face our issues head on. Coming in touch with the Red Essence helps us to break the chains of our childhood conditioning and expand beyond our defenses, which we need to do in order to grow in life.
In this retreat, we will experience the Red Latifa and allow it to flow back into our system once again. We will inquire into the psychological issues which block our connection to the Red Essence of our Soul and how these issues manifest in our body and in our lives. We will move from passivity, contraction and dependence into action, expansion and the strength to be autonomous. When we discover our aliveness, our Essential strength, life becomes effervescent, colorful and multidimensional. We can experience our true energetic potential, which is a state of being vibrantly alive, our senses open and in touch with all our innate capacities. We gain the courage to be who we truly are.
