Illuminating Consciousness: Awakening Through the Nine Bodies
A non-residential three day retreat
Event Dates:September 29, 2017 - 9:30am - October 1, 2017 - 4:30pm
The Nine Bodies teachings are an exploration of how to utilize the many dimensions and manifestations of consciousness in meditation. The teachings map out a journey that starts with the kind of consciousness that arises in the physical body and is directly observable, and then takes us through ever more subtle levels of consciousness.
In this three-day non-residential retreat, Phillip Moffitt will share his understanding of the Nine Bodies teachings that were transmitted to him by the Himalayan yoga master Swami Sri Premvarni Balyogi. Phillip will give specific instructions for accessing the various Bodies including how to recognize each Body, how to nourish it, and he will identify the consciousness capacities that come with each Body.
While there will be periods of meditation each day, this retreat will include a significant amount of background information and detailed instructions about the practices due to the subtle nature of this material. There will be ample time for questions and discussion.
If you practice mindfulness meditation, the Nine Bodies teachings offer you a new means for tracking and classifying meditative experiences, which can help you stay present with whatever arises. These explorations may also increase the clarity and specificity of your mindfulness and enable the arising of insight. However, in no way are these teachings a substitute for your lineage practice. Rather, they may help you be more effective in your lineage practice.
