Being meditation is meant to imply that ‘trying’ to meditate is a paradoxical experience. We can put ourselves in the conscious state of meditation but it isn’t until we learn to ‘let go’ into the meditative energy that expanded consciousness emerges. The discussion in this video conference will help to clarify the neuro-physiological understanding of the meditation process. It will bring to light the recognition that the human brain-body connection is already genetically encoded with the desire and ability to achieve higher states of consciousness. One of the impediments to this process is the ‘ego’ that tries to achieve a state that the brain-body is already capable of achieving without trying. We will look at the interference of a natural biological process and provide several techniques as a way of reducing this interference. We will also activate mechanisms in the body that have been unexplored yet experienced by many meditation masters and students for centuries.

By exploring both the neurological and physiological abilities of the human person, we will be able to bring to light the ease and natural process with which the human organism is capable of moving towards higher states of consciousness and connectedness. It is this inner state of connection that produces a state of inner safety, which is the only place that can produce a state of peaceful harmony with oneself and society. Once this state is achieved, we will discuss how to reinforce this state of inner groundedness and centeredness by repeating the same neurophysiological process that serves to deepen this state of human aliveness.
