A Free, Online, conversation facilitated by Vera de Chalambert
Recordings are in the Modules tab.
The tradition of Kashmiri Shivaism is one of not knowing, of postponing judgments and conclusions. The body, (the felt, tactile and perceptual experience) becomes the moment to moment exploration, in a listening that gently and effortlessly opens and empties itself of memory, projection and concepts. As the layers that were holding the density and tensions of separation unravel and surface, they reveal the vibrating field that is their true substance and our real presence.
Ellen Emmet and Vera de Chalambert will engage in an open and intimate dialogue, exploring how this approach can touch and affect each of our lives. The conversation will also include other themes they hold dear: the direct path of Advaita, embodiment and nonduality, and the dimension of feminine expression on the path.
See a talk by Ellen Emmet:
Ellen’s deepest intuition was confirmed when she met her teacher, Francis Lucille. In his presence, she recognized the eternal, limitless and universal nature of our shared reality. Over many years, her understanding deepened to touch all levels of experience. The process of aligning and stabilizing all aspects of her life to this understanding has continued to unfold since then.
As a child Ellen loved to move and dance. She knew without words the joy and limitless transparency that the body dissolved into when it was free and alive.
As an adolescent and young adult, she acutely felt and enacted suffering through her body.
Thus, the experience that we call the body has always been central to all of Ellen’s experiences, both in the ignoring and in the recognition of our true nature.
Today, Ellen offers meetings and retreats in The Awakening Body, sharing a direct exploration of reality sourced in the tradition of Kashmiri Shaivism and self-inquiry.
In addition, she has a private practice as a Psychotherapist, and facilitator of Authentic Movement. Her background of Dance-Movement Therapy and Transpersonal Psychology is shaped by the non-dual understanding.
Ellen lives in Oxford with her husband Rupert Spira, also a teacher in the tradition of non-duality.
