Publisher's Summary

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.

For the Seeker

Would you listen to The Practice of Pure Awareness again? Why?

Yes over and over to reinforce the somatic meditation.

What other book might you compare The Practice of Pure Awareness to and why?

Other books come close to trying to get you to pure awareness in a top down manner from the mind, but some people including me this does not work as well as using the body to reach pure awareness

Which character – as performed by Reginald A. Ray – was your favorite?

He instructs the meditation and explains the philosophy behind it.

Any additional comments?

If you are a serious seeker for enlightenment this is a must the narrators voice is monotone but found this conducive to getting in the right zone for meditation.

excellent content but delivered as one long book

Would you try another book from Reginald A. Ray and/or Reginald A. Ray?

Absolutely, and I have.

What did you like best about this story?

This "book" is a collection of teachings and guided meditation practices. The content and recording quality is excellent! However, the format on Audible is hardly conducive to usability. It's not broken out by chapters or sections -- it's just one long 10 hour book. This format is a significant impediment to the intention of this audio book. How hard could it have been to divide it into chapters?

What about Reginald A. Ray’s performance did you like?

Wise teachings. Calm and peaceful tone. Guided meditations are outstanding. But, as mentioned above, the format makes it virtually impossible to go back and listen to teachings or find the meditations.

Pure, simple and very effective

What did you like most about The Practice of Pure Awareness?

Reggie's teachings are so profound and his way of presenting them is so clear and straight forward.

Any additional comments?

I had been meditating for 18 years before I tried the somatic meditation that Reggie teaches. It has transformed my personality and helped me enter the core of my being and tap into that great silence, that beautiful bliss and has helped me activate that all seeing eye that sees and understands the causes and effects of what's going on inside my body, mind and heart. The practices slowly works on you and transforms you.

Truly Magnificent Recording

I had been considering trying Chan Meditation for a while but always found ways to postpone it. This beautiful piece of Artistry has given me that taste.
The narration is full of life making the recording a pleasure to listen to. You don't need to be in the same room as the author as you feel a deep connectedness with him through his powerful presentation. I love it!!!
