Publisher's Summary

Nine Step-by-Step Sessions for "Waking Down"
How can we discover this perfect, somatic knowing? It begins by removing the blockages that manifest mentally, emotionally, and physically. Join Reggie Ray as he presents the practice of pure awareness in nine guided, sequential sessions that lead to the direct experience of our true nature.
Emphasizing deep relaxation, the power in the lower belly, opening the central channel, and the significance of posture, Reggie helps us unfold ever-subtler realizations of our capacities to love and heal. Through yin breathing, earth descent, 12-fold lower belly breathing, and more, we journey through the channels of the subtle body, releasing old traumas and stuck energy. "Through these meditations," says Reggie, "our true selves begin to flower. We discover that in essence we are a river, a torrent, of love."
The Practice of Pure Awareness invites us into embodied awakening - a fuller and richer experience than the more arid or "above the neck" states of consciousness we find in many conventional spiritual approaches. Through committed practice, the body itself becomes our guide, teacher, and protector, illuminating the perfection inside and around us.

For the Seeker

Would you listen to The Practice of Pure Awareness again? Why?

Yes over and over to reinforce the somatic meditation.

What other book might you compare The Practice of Pure Awareness to and why?

Other books come close to trying to get you to pure awareness in a top down manner from the mind, but some people including me this does not work as well as using the body to reach pure awareness

Which character – as performed by Reginald A. Ray – was your favorite?

He instructs the meditation and explains the philosophy behind it.

Any additional comments?

If you are a serious seeker for enlightenment this is a must the narrators voice is monotone but found this conducive to getting in the right zone for meditation.

Exceptional knowledge and presentation

As a Shaman I have been trained to traverse the upper and lower worlds and the dimensions on this plane. But now in a Buddhist Monastery in Burma studying Vipassana Buddhism, I was both overwhelmed and delighted to learn about the treasures within. Dr Ray's presentation provided me with a deep understanding of the journey within and I continue to employ his teachings on a daily basis.
