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

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
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...

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.
