Neuroscience is catching up to Spirituality

Last fall I took a Mindfulness and the Brain course at the University of Virginia’s Mindfulness Center. It was a revelation; not in terms of the mind’s potential, or it’s power to change or its’ more esoteric capabilities. Nope. I learned those lessons from some twenty-five years of spiritual seeking and now teaching in the schoolhalls of new-age metaphysics, yoga, guru admiration, advaita vedanta, and zen mindfulness. Got it. What was revealing about this class was hearing about these same concepts sans the flowery-spiritual-new age speak. The clean vernacular in this class was culled straight from the departments of neuroscience, medicine, and biology. I was simply blown away. I had no idea neuroscience was that close, that broad, that courageous, and well, that spiritual. This jaded spiritual teacher was impressed.

It’s a new day Charlie Brown. As a spiritual teacher I cannot tell you how relieved I was to discover this. No more vibey, new age, lingo. It always felt inadequate to me. No more touchy-feely overly dramatic and long-winded explanations.

The Body’s Gratitude- Guided Exercise from Course Webinar

The current BCE Course is about half way through and it’s been an intense amazing ride for everyone.  Each week we gather via webinar to check in, report and share.  Each week we begin the webinar with a guided exercise.  Often, I don’t know where these lead to, what the topic will be, or even what the exercise will be.  I let the moment guide.  In this moment quite a few subjects were touched upon.  The one that struck me the most was the body’s gratitude.  Listen, watch, enjoy- and dive deep into this gratitude.  You won’t regret it.

Awareness- Are you missing this step?

I’m passionate about this subject because I see many seekers who are stuck in the mire of endless advaita / nondual teachings, satsangs, books and videos- all of whom have skipped or avoided this vital step.

spiritual awakening intensity

An often missing ingredient for those longing for awakening is intensity- the buildup of pressure and release while on the path. In other words if you’re just surfing spiritual you-tube videos or reading books- without the intensity I speak of in this video- you won’t get far.
