Teachers that use the body?

I was just interested to know if there are many other teachers other than eckhart and Kim that use the body as a portal to presence and teach body awareness, not just confined to physical practices but can be sustained throughout the day? It might be interesting to hear other teachers' views :)

Touching Enlightenment

I just bought a book called 'Touching Enlightenment, Finding Realization in the Body' by Reginald Ray, it offers a way to enlightenment through the body, I haven't got to any of the actual techniques yet, but I expect they will be similar to the inner body meditation. So far the content has been mai...

Kim Eng's meditation is good for this, a very relaxed approach :)

Re: Inner body questions?

I think I feel better taking a more gentle approach to this :) It's so hard to know whether you're doing it 'right' so it's nice to talk to you guys :)

Inner body questions?

This has been getting at me for a while now, so I'd thought I'd post it to see if anyone else has had the same problem or overcome it. This is to do with the inner body portal; I was wondering if concentration plays any part or if it is purely an awareness? Because when I focus my 'mind' so to speak...

Re: Hello From Plymouth, Devon, UK

Wow I live in Plymouth too! When I watch people looking out to the sea from the Hoe or the Barbican I always think that they might be having an enlightened moment, free from their thoughts just for a little while :)

Re: Hi from melbourne :D

Hi and welcome :) I'm so glad to find another teenager who's into this! I'm sixteen and I live in England, my friends and family just think I'm weird when I mention Eckhart Tolle or 'airy fairy spiritual crap' or just call me cute XD Do you get that? The weird looks from people and so on? :P

Re: Eating

I've been trying to pay attention to all my bodily sensations as I go through life, especially eating and it makes me fuller a lot quicker, without feeling heavy or guilty for eating too much. :)

Eating

Just out of interest, I was wondering how you guys try and bring presence to your eating. Do you find it easier to focus on all the tastes and textures of the food first or is do you put your attention in your body first?

Re: Depression?

Thank you so much for your wonderful advice. I have tried to notice my thoughts in the past few days and it is much easier to notice my patterns of behaviour. Also staying grounded in my body helps me transmute the negative emotions that seem to come on for no reason. Thank you very much :)

Depression?

When I first started reading the Eckhart Tolle teachings they worked brilliantly and I had a summer of intense peace and happiness with my friends and family. However, recently I can never be present and I cannot seem to enjoy anything, and I feel so bad because I have such a beautiful life and I fe...

Re: Inner body or mindfulness?

I listened to gateways to now and it helped me realise that all portals are one and the same. So with any portal, you will end up feeling the aliveness in the body, the deep peace, the silence, you just have to choose one that works for you, or experiment with different portals. One that I found par...
