  • Re: the exercise to add to your walking meditation–seeing the ever-changing nature of everything and therefore the existence and simultaneous nonexistence of everything. This is an important practice, as important as anything we’ve done with eyes closed. Eyes closed is to prepare you for this! I mentioned that I’d be asking your experience, so here is a hint in advance:
    As Unity consciousness develops, the underlying bed of awareness you ARE, overflows into the environment and fills the “gaps” in the existence of things. That is, it fills the gaps consisting of the non-existent nature of things. Since those gaps of non-existence “exist” every moment, you see your Self in everything every moment. This is where understanding actually begins to alter your perception of the world to develop unity.
    So please walk daily and give some time to this important practice. If it seems difficult, go back to first practicing the earlier walking meditations we discussed: 1) feeling the bed of underlying silent awareness you are; 2) feeling that inner underlying awareness overflowing into the environment. You can also use the “sap pervading the plant” analogy for the undivided essence of the Self pervading all. These are practices you can do whenever doing quiet activity, such as walking in nature. Keep in mind that enlightenment is knowing the true nature of things, and this IS that knowing. It happens with eyes open, in activity.
  • Continue with everything else, including the So-Hum bhastrika with head moving, and Ashvini mudra/Soma practice. Especially, don’t forget to insert Ketchari several times during each sitting. Enjoy!
Lesson audio meditation

Each lesson page includes an audio meditation for that lesson to make it more convenient to go to the guided meditation. However, it’s important to watch the video before listening to the guided meditation, as the video explains practices included in the meditation.

I recommend the following to help deepen and smooth your experience of the powerful techniques taught in this course. I believe each of these can be helpful, though I acknowledge the vast differences between individual constitutions. I receive no referral fee or other benefit by these recommendations, except that they may facilitate your experience. The Phase II Detox is sold on my wife’s website. Many supplements can have side effects and interfere with medications. For this reason, it’s advisable to consult a physician before taking supplements, especially if you have autoimmune disease, high blood pressure, a weak or toxic liver, diabetes, and any number of other conditions. In any case, none of these should be taken daily for an extended period of time without breaks.

  • Phase II Detox – Is purported to help detox the liver. I do have the APOE3 and APOE4 genes, which may account for why I find this amazingly effective (so says my wife, Dr. Keesha). You’ll have to judge for yourself.
  • Organic India Tulsi tea – I recommend two cups a day. Organic India offers a variety of Tulsi teas. (Tulsi is considered a sacred herb in India.) I’ve tried several and do find all to be very wonderful for meditation, though I avoid the varieties that contain caffeine, like the green tea/Tulsi blend. Caffeine is generally not great for meditation.
  • CoQ10 – Here’s a decent article on benefits and how much to take. Probably most beneficial for those over 50-ish.
  • Some form of daily Yoga-like exercise is simply a must to supplement the advanced practices I teach in this and other courses. It is so important to balancing the prana throughout your system. A super-efficient traditional form of exercise is the 5 Tibetan Rites. I’ve only recently added them to my daily Yoga routine, but they are wonderfully strengthening and supportive of expanding prana throughout the system. You can do 21 repetitions of the 5 rites in just 5 minutes or so. Now that’s the kind of efficiency in exercise I love! (Depending on your physical condition, it could take longer.)
