Blossoming Into Awareness: The Five Levels of Attachment Workshop
The Five Levels of Attachment: What has been holding you back from achieving personal freedom? Are you using knowledge, or is knowledge using you?
We have all made agreements about how we choose to live our lives and what we believe our personal truths are. But what we may not realize is that each one of these agreements represents an attachment, a limiting filter on who we think we are, and what the future could hold. We call these attachments “knowledge” without ever questioning if that knowledge is necessarily true for us.
The Five Levels of Attachment provides a guide to understanding how we have developed our belief structures and how to go about re-evaluating or even severing these harmful attachments. If you are looking through life and translating it as it goes along, you will miss out on living it. Your Knowledge has to become a tool that you will use to guide you through life but that can also be put aside, do not let knowledge translate everything you experience.
In this class, don Miguel Ruiz Jr. defines each of the Five Levels of Attachment and invites us to reclaim our true freedom by becoming aware of our belief structures, realizing that they exist only through our agreements:
Level 1: The Authentic Self.
Level 2: Preference.
Level 3: Identity.
Level 4: Internalization.
Level 5: Fanaticism.
Building on the principles found in his bestselling book The Five Levels of Attachment, don Miguel Ruiz Jr., will teach you to:
- Become aware of how you confuse “who you are” with “what you know”
- Gain awareness of how your attachments have created your reality
- Stop creating your identity based on the opinions and judgments of others around you
- Let go of the fear of what you are without your beliefs
- Make new Agreements that are more in line with your true Authentic Self
“Love is accepting ourselves just the way we are, with all of our flaws and our ever-changing belief system. You are nothing else but who you are. You are not the person you were a year ago. You are not the person you will be in a year. You aren’t ever the person you think you are. You simply are, and that must be enough.”
