Awakening is an embodied experience that is supported through moment to moment awareness. The Nine Bodies teachings is an embodying awareness practice that offers a moment to moment tracking and classifying of meditative experiences. As an insight practice, these teachings provide the means to explore ever more subtle levels of consciousness that can strengthen concentration and brighten awareness. The explorations, grounded in the present moment, can lead to a level of stillness that supports greater clarity and understanding into the causes of suffering and the way leading to the end of suffering. The weekend will start by focusing on the consciousness that arises in the physical body and systematically delve into the nature of consciousness itself. We will follow the traditional sit and walk format with detailed instructions on how to utilize the Nine Bodies teachings while practicing Vipassana.
(This weekend explores a set of teachings about the nature of consciousness that were first transmitted to Phillip Moffitt by the Himalayan yoga master Sri Swami Premvarni Balyogi twenty years ago. They are the basis for Phillip Moffitt’s book: Awakening through the Nine Bodies.)
All experience levels are welcome.
