Publisher's Summary

Engaging the Body as Your Source of Infinite Knowing
Most of us sense that our bodies contain uncommon intelligence - we "feel it in our bones" or notice it in our "gut instincts". But is there something far vaster here waiting to be experienced? With Somatic Descent, you are invited to tune in to the natural wisdom of your body, refine and amplify it, and explore it fully.
In this program pioneering teacher Dr. Reggie Ray presents a fascinating audio program on this rich dimension of Tibetan Buddhism: how to go beyond the veil of the thinking mind to tap the wondrous yet wholly trustworthy domain of your body.
Beyond Basic Mindfulness and into the Empowering Realms of the Soma
For those who've worked with basic breath- and body-based meditations, this course will be a revelation: step-by-step guidance into some of the most transformative and powerful experiences charted by Buddhism's vast maps of consciousness.
Drawing on decades of teaching and scholarship, Reggie Ray shares a curriculum of practices and insights to access the deepest knowing enfolded in the soma, the landscape of your physical body and the source of immediate and greatest fulfillment.
With him you will learn how your body is a field of infinite wisdom, the origins of somatic descent practices and how they transform us on both the neurological and nonphysical levels, many meditations for connecting with and embracing the soma, and how to integrate these profound changes into your daily life.
Highlights include:

Your body as the field of infinite knowing
How to explore the wisdom of the soma
Yin breathing, connecting with the earth, and many other guided practices
Over 13 hours of investigation into the somatic dimensions of awakening

Buddhism Recreated

I am flabbergasted that you have chosen to disrespect traditional Buddhism to this extent. You imply that the body is not properly recognized in Buddhism, which you must know is an untruth. You mention Tibetan Buddhism and it's focus on the mind but most of Asia practices Theravada Buddhism which is focused on the body; body and mind. And a vast aspect of Theravada Buddhism is Vipassana Buddhism which is again body focused. As much of your book as I could bear to listen to has you creating a body focused spiritual system, totally ignoring the dharma of Lord Buddha. This is unacceptable.
To continue to harp on the experiences written by one individual who has suffered a stroke and hold the information as gospel is an insult to those of us who have worked in science, research ,and health. As is the mention of eating behind your dog.
I will return your book.
