The Awakening Body
Somatic Meditation for Discovering Our Deepest Life
Paperback ISBN: 1611803713
A senior Buddhist teacher offers six fundamental body-based meditation practices that show the reader that enlightenment is as close to you as your own body. What would it be like to experience our life directly, truly and completely, and to live it as it actually is? Before we die, wouldn't it be worth knowing this human existence of ours in its fullest possible measure and extent? For many of us, life consists almost entirely of what we know conceptually through the mediation of the linear, conceptualizing mentality of our left brain. The mainstream Western world view privileges thinking over direct experience; and this fuels the increasingly disembodied, disconnected lives of so many of us today. Reggie Ray offers six fundamental body-based meditation practices that connect us back to the literal reality of our body and our most elemental experience of being human. The true richness of our life is in the raw and rugged reality of a fully present and embodied human life. The practices can be done seated or lying down. Reggie includes modified practices that can be done when falling asleep at night, or in the midst of insomnia. The book will also include links to online audio recordings of the guided meditations.
