The Awakening Body

The Awakening Body

With Ellen Emmet  •  Sundays, September 22, 29 & October 6, 2019

A 3-part Webinar Series

Meetings take place in the Modules tab.

Meeting will begin at 10am Pacific Time. Time on your browser may be adjusted to your own timezone. If it doesn't look right try setting your timezone in your Account Details.

During these three webinar sessions we will share a guided contemplation of our direct experience, and in particular our experience of the body, in the light of the non-dual understanding and the Kashmiri tantric Shaivism tradition. This will be followed by a Q&A conversation. (Please note that there will not be any lecture).

In our daily lives, the body is seldom tasted as it truly is. We rarely listen to its language or allow it to simply blossom with its natural, organic intelligence. In fact we have deeply disconnected from this level of experience and even when we turn back towards the body, we come with agendas and ideas that we project upon it, only to perpetuate a network of tension and density that we identify with as 'myself'. 

This approach invites us to open to the totality of our felt, tactile and sensorial experience moment by moment free of any agenda. As we face and allow the layers of density and psychosomatic contractions with openness, we effortlessly discover our place in and as this open listening presence which is our essential identity. Simultaneously the body uncovers its organic and natural resonance and identity with this presence which is its source and substance. 

We discover that our love and deepest attention naturally merge with this open vibrating presence which ripples effortlessly as our moment to moment experience.

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.
