Body Scan Meditation : Embracing the Sacred Feminine | 4/26/2018

Embracing the Sacred Feminine- Five Body Mind Processes + Body Scan Meditation : Isa Gucciardi Ph.D. & Robert A.F. Thurman at Menla Retreat Phoenicia, New York 2017

In this video the Foundation of the Sacred Stream’s Isa Gucciardi Ph.D + Robert AF Thurman lead a body scan meditation.

“Every kind of Buddhism has their idea of three levels of wisdom—wisdom born of learning, wisdom born of critical reflection, which is a kind of meditation, and then wisdom born of concentrated meditation, bhavana.

So there’s wisdom born of realization, which is where shamatha and vipashyana are interconnected. Why? Because if you meditate a lot, before you have some learning, especially about emptiness and selflessness, then you’re likely to get into a state, because the mind is so powerful, where you will feel comfortable with your self-centeredness intact and it’ll be a kind of escapist state—a quietist type of escapist state. And then your growth as an overall person pursuing or evolving toward enlightenment will be stunted. It’s sort of like getting addicted to a tranquilizer.”
