processing of issues may be seen to arise in four ways:
processing processing of deeply painful and meaningful issues
that arise out of a traumatic loss or experience. Grieving at the death
of a loved one is an example.
processing used in Scientology and, in modified forms,
in psychotherapy. This introduces a question geared to induce psychological
process in a specific issue. The answer that arises is then acknowledged.
This question/answer/acknowledgement cycle continues until the original
occurrence of the issue is uncovered. This is typically done with another
person asking the questions, although the client can also process himself/herself.
processing this arises during periods of deep insight and illumination
when the Superconscious Mind discerns the essence of an issue. This
brings about spontaneous processing and release.
processing this occurs during inner transformation in which karmic
issues are directly transmuted and all seven aspects of the issue are
eradicated from the mind. Transformational meditation techniques or
Light Immersion activates this kind of processing.
aspects of processing can be described as follows:

associated memories, going back to the first incidence of the
associated emotions, going back to the first incidence of the
associated beliefs, values, concepts or ideas going back to the
first incidence of the issue
choices that occurred at the beginning of the issue and choices
that were made subsequently that hold the issue in place.
the viewpoint and sense of identity encapsulated by the issue
at its origin and over time to the present
level of karmic impressions (samskaras) from which the other phenomena
accessible through process meditation may be seen to arise.
that Stimulate Processing
A number of
modalities may trigger different types of processing. For example:
modalities such as massage, structural balancing and acupressure may
tap the stream of process by stimulating its physical substrate through
stimulates psychological processing by accessing memory, emotions,
beliefs, choices and self-image through skillful questioning and leading
the client to become aware of aspects of himself/herself.
and other groups that use process meditation introduce the client
to a progressive series of structured process meditations in order
to uncover deeper layers of the unconscious mind until breakthrough
to the clients spiritual or noetic essence is achieved.
may catalyze insight-driven processing by suggesting significant dreams
or by guiding the client to encounter a symbolic representation of
relies upon insight-driven processing brought about by deep reflection
and inquiry in order to drive character reformation, and also upon
transformational processing induced by transformational techniques
or Light Immersion to directly burn away karma.

Mudrashram® System of Integral Meditation, we introduce the techniques
of Jnana Yoga in order to activate insight-driven processing and the
transformational technique of bija mantra in order to bring about
growth and recovery from trauma can be augmented by the skillful induction
of psychological process through any of these means. We welcome the reader
