There are two kinds of religions: old-fashioned religion and what is now the emerging religion. Old-fashioned religion is a religion that involves a set of beliefs, or dogmas, that you buy into in order to be saved and in order to be part of the “inner group.” The new kind of religion that is emerging is…

One of the things we know about binaural beats and the other technologies Eric Thompson has so brilliantly woven together in the Profound Meditation Program and iAwake’s other tracks is that with daily practice and prolonged use, in a very short time, we start becoming much more resilient and able to deal with stress. The stress threshold begins to raise and…

Eric: There’s a Canadian trainer by the name of Thomas Hawes who has developed a concept he calls zone minutes; he has found among the athletes he has worked with, that the more minutes they accrue of being in the zone—of being in that place where they’re totally relaxed and totally connected to everything that’s happening around…

What is mindfulness? From what I can see, mindfulness is when you begin to develop the witness or the observer self. In other words, instead of being locked inside your story, your trauma, or your ego, you begin to experience it from the outside as in, “Oh, isn’t this interesting?” If you can observe yourself from outside the mental and emotional…

Can brainwave and biofield entrainment help in ultimate spiritual liberation?  Perhaps, according to some views that still rely on subject-object dualism, it can’t or at least may not matter that much, since they are more concerned with the empty side of the table, the transcendent Subject, which, in their schools, is divorced from the manifested…

Something I find quite extraordinary about the Profound Meditation Program is the integrative power of the practice. In other words, you really get through your trauma and shadow issues. They come out during the process, and often they’re expressed not just in cognitive ideas but in bodily-felt sensations. This doesn’t necessarily happen with traditional meditation. Because the Profound Meditation Program is…

Louis Parsons’ art SoulScapes was recently featured in the Integral Art Gallery – December 2012. ___________________________________________________________________________ Louis Parsons, Artist, iAwake Guest Blogger I’ve been painting professionally, in a very particular way that has become known as “SoulScaping,” for over ten years. During this time, painting has been my major spiritual practice.

If we understand stage development, we understand the challenges that face us as a world; with so many people at so many different levels all thinking they are absolutely correct and everyone else is wrong, it’s really hard for people to even speak to each other. If you think I’m wrong, go home for Thanksgiving or…

One of the great benefits of brainwave entrainment meditation is that it is one of the only things that has been shown to actually facilitate and speed up the process of moving stably into higher developmental levels. I love it that we can now watch exactly what happens in the brain when someone is practicing…

I picked up a book the other day by Rollo May called The Courage to Create, published in 1975. Rollo May was an existential psychologist, and I think he was quite influential in some of Ken Wilber’s early stuff. His half-brother, Gerald May, wrote a classic in the recovery field, calledAddiction & Grace. Anyway, The Courage to…

I was recently in the Bay Area to teach a class on Addiction Studies. When my class and I did our first meditation together, we sank into a very deep meditative state, one which we could all really feel. When you meditate in a group, there is a definite field of energy, a palpable coming…

I have been passionately playing electric blues guitar for about two years now. Before that, I spent about forty years playing acoustic rhythm guitar and a little bit of lead. Then two years ago this August, I fell in love with a guitar at a friend’s house. He was selling a vintage guitar―which I bought…

I want to talk about non-duality and enlightenment and open up that whole can of worms, because there’s just a lot of talk about it these days. We put ourselves through all kinds of crazy things in order to achieve it: we join ashrams, follow spiritual teachers, spend lots of money, and really do all…

Q: In the ILP literature, Ken Wilbur does endorse the use of “auditory meditation aids” such as this, but also emphasizes the need for an onging meditation practice without such aids. With only so much time in a day to meditate, since I am a householder and not a monk, what is your perspective? My…
