In the Hindu tradition, they talk about how siddhis emerge after one begins a process of deep meditation and awakening. Siddhis are special abilities and capacities, the equivalent of charisms or “gifts of the Spirit” in the Christian sense. In the Letters of Paul, in the New Testament, he talks about how different gifts of the Spirit were emerging in…

A Dedicated Daily Meditation Practice Makes All the Difference

I think that enlightenment is a process—not one where somebody flicks on a light bulb and then you’re enlightened forever, and you’re perfect, and you speak all languages—no. It’s not like that. But it is a process, and when we engage in a daily meditation practice, perhaps that is the most enlightened choice that we can make…

It’s the last day of a five-week Integral Recovery intensive and I feel really good about it. There was a lot of healing, a lot of practice, and people are at a different place from where they started. We did a lot of work: We meditated an hour every morning and 40 minutes every evening. Then we…

Filed Under: ,

Last week we defined the shadow, according to Carl Jung, and discussed how to recognize the shadow when it’s trying to get our attention. (See The Neuroscience of Shadow Integration Part I.) Today I’d like to talk about the possible neural correlates of the persona and the shadow. First, I’d like to point out that none of this…

While I was meditating today, I was thinking about all the breakthroughs people are having doing this practice of using brain entrainment and biofield technology while meditating. If you could sit where I sit, hear, and read all of the testimonials from people that are using the iAwake technology—from our beta testers, from the students…

The Neuroscience of Shadow Integration – Part I

My hope is that this article will inspire you to use the power of your own consciousness to become aware of your shadow, to allow it to be your teacher, and to integrate it. As we become more deeply and mindfully centered in our hearts, the recognition and integration of previously unconscious shadow processes changes our…

Vision questing is a very personal topic for me; I have vision quested for years and also developed wilderness therapy programs that put hundreds of people out on vision quests.

Emotional Alchemy: Holding the Pain, Transmuting the Darkness

My contention is that if we really want to get in the evolutionary fast lane, we’ll dedicate one hour a day to our meditation practice. For most people, mornings are the best time—before the world gets going and our opportunity to sit quietly slips away. So many of us tend to make excuses and skip…

An iAwake Techonologies practitioner wrote in recently, saying that after listening to VisionQuest, he felt “a low pressure” in his third eye area for two to three days afterwards. He wondered if anyone else was having a similar experience and what the pressure might signify. This is a common report we hear from people who use…

I was talking to a client the other day, and he said, “I lost my signal because I’m so far away from my source.” He was talking about his Wi-Fi source. I said, “That’s really deep.” He said, “Yeah, it is.” And we both wrote it down. If we lose our signal, our capacity to…
