Accessing the Inherent Wakefulness at the Core of Your Being

Your body is already awake. The journey of enlightenment, teaches Reggie Ray, ultimately leads
you beyond the limits of the "head space" and into the living wisdom of the very cells that make
up your physical form. With The Practice of Pure Awareness, Reggie shares what he sees as the
essence of the Tibetan tantric tradition: allowing the depth and fullness of body-based or somatic
intelligence to reveal itself.

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.
