Phillip Moffitt - Awakening Through the Nine Bodies (Corte Madera)

Saturday, September 16, 2017 - 1:00pm

Based on meditation practices Phillip Moffitt learned twenty years ago from Himalayan yoga master Sri Swami Balyogi Premvarni, this beautifully illustrated book is a guide to exploring the nature of mind and gaining a better understanding of experiences that arise during meditation. Awakening Through the Nine Bodies teachings map out a journey that starts with consciousness that arises in the physical body and is directly observable, and then travels through ever more subtle levels of consciousness to that which is not manifest and is only potential, and therefore has to be inferred. The book includes a series of mysterious illustrations that Balyogi created during his time of intense Samadhi explorations. Each illustration is a rich composition of symbols that express aspects of inner experiences that are almost impossible to express with language. Moffitt provides detailed interpretations of all the illustrations along with precise meditation instructions.

Phillip Moffitt occupies a unique position in the world of mindful living and leadership. With the astute business acumen honed during his years as a media entrepreneur combined with the deep wisdom about inner development cultivated over the past thirty years as an insight meditation practitioner and teacher, Moffitt brings unparalled insights and strategic vision to those seeking to lead authentic, purposeful lives. Moffitt was editor-in-chief and CEO of Esquire and led the successful turnaround of the magazine in the 1980s. After he left his publishing enterprise, he devoted himself to studying and practicing Theraveda Buddhism and is now a nationally known teacher of mindfulness meditation. He was ordained in 2001 by Jack Kornfield to teach vipassana meditation. His teaching is influenced by Ajahn Sumedho and his teacher Ajahn Chah. He serves as co-guiding teacher at Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Northern California. Moffitt is also the president and founder of Life Balance Institute where he trains individuals and groups in the principles of values-based leadership and living with a focus on how to skillfully make major transitions. He is the author of Dancing with Life and Emotional Chaos to Clarity.
