We engage clients in a three-part process that integrates Western business models with Eastern wisdom practices.

Our Bhavana-Effect includes 12 PRACTICES that cultivate being to awaken the potential future, integrate an expanded mindset with practices, and sustain continual learning and inquiry.

AWAKEN.

An inquiry into the nature of being that engages your body, mind, and language. Through an ontological inquiry (into the nature of what it is to be human) we increase self-awareness and cultivate insight that expands potential.

INTEGRATE.

A transition that evolves our mindset beyond past frames of reference. Through an integral approach, we identify and support new structures and practices. We become aware of outmoded perceptions which encourages a process of unlearning.

SUSTAIN.

Engaging in a life of contemplative practice supports continual learning and unlearning, increased levels of awareness and intentional action. A sustained practice grounds one in a commitment to maintaining growth.

GROUND/FRUITION PATH
FIRST-PERSON.
ATTITUDE- WHO we are and WHY we learn (intention).
SECOND-PERSON.
ACTION- Attention on HOW we apply and experience learning
THIRD-PERSON.
KNOWLEDGE- Attention on WHAT we learn

A

BEING SOURCE

Body – breathe, sense, emotions, mood, energy

Mind – awareness, mindset, worldview, attitude

Context – listening, intention, possibility

CREATE CONTEXT

B

DOING ACTION

Body/Action – move, respond, behavior

Speaking – cause, action, apply/experience knowledge

Process – organize, practice

COORDINATE  ACTION

C

KNOWING SKILLS  

Content – evidence, facts, conditions, events

Interpret – situation, impact, circumstance

Knowledgeaptitude; how I know, what I know.

DISCLOSE RESULTS
A + B + C = SHIFT BEING: (observe and listen) create new openings for action
B + C = CHANGE ACTION: to improve current results

Are you ready to support the core of your being?

At Bhavana Learning Group, our ontological learning model focuses first on being (A) as foundational to shaping doing (B) and knowing (C). Our philosophical grounding involves differentiating being of being human:

  • Ground: WHO we are as a context for commitment — the GROUND of being; then,
  • Fruition: WHY we engage as a context for possibility — the FRUITION of being.
  • Then Path: HOW/WHAT we engage as the process/content — the PATHWAY.

We employ this three-fold inquiry — Ground/Fruition then Path — as distinct from traditional process-content learning models. The result cultivates an interdependent awareness that includes and cultivates elements of our being, such as our history, environment, culture, and potential that conventional learning models may separate, dismiss or compartmentalize.

With our 12 PRACTICES we become present to our entire being, learning occurs more fully — through body, perceptions, and language.

  • Through increasing awareness, we access who we are as an observer;
  • Through enhancing listening, we access a new relationship to language.
  • Through mindfully breathing, we access our learning from our body.
