Meet Your Meditation Guide
Gabe Marihugh has been studying and practicing meditation and myriad esoteric teachings for over 30 years. He began working with chakras and related energy practices over 20 years ago with the Order of the Ascended Rose (OAR), a quirky little teaching order that aimed to train people to be energy wizards. From the OAR he earned first his ministers credentials, and many years of training later his Doctor of Divinity.
“For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length–and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.”
– Carlos Castaneda
In the course of his explorations he has wandered near and far in the esoteric world. While many different teachings inform his approaches he holds ritual magic, non dual inquiry and chakra meditation closest to his heart.
He teaches regular classes on meditation and hosts weekly tea ceremonies (currently on hiatus)to help spread the dreaming. He is also the creator of the Wild Harmonic Oracle Cards; a modern divination deck for navigating the energetic world of the awakened dreamer.
“I don’t believe anything, but I have many suspicions.”
– Robert Anton Wilson
Listen to an interview of Gabe below, on meditation and culture.
“Sure, Gabe lives in a cabin on Maui. And sure, I took a class with him and three other meditators in a garden a couple weeks back. Truth is: this guy has been asking questions and sitting in inquiry for most of his teenage and adult life and his meditations and workshops are some of the best on the planet for discovering self and place in the universe. He opens his meditation session with a psuedo-monologue about the Dirty Little Secrets of Culture, how it separates us from our self, and offers solutions in this incredibly poignant episode. Beyond the non-spiritual stuff we banter about, Gabe is one of the best conversationalists I’ve met. [The best part is I don’t think he even realizes it] So today: Gabe talks being spiritual instead of searching for a spiritual life, what is the optimal way of living alongside cultural influences telling us we’re “less than,” the dirty secrets of culture, including how certainty is addictive and a mis-guided indicator for strong leadership. Delicious.”
