AUDIO PROGRAMS BY REGINALD RAY
Awakening the Heart
Who we are in our essence is a living field of awakened and boundless love. Dr. Reggie Ray’s Awakening the Heart invites you on a journey of discovery through the infinite territory of the human heart. This 24-CD training program guides you step-by-step through nearly 20 somatic (or body-based) meditations for reconnecting to our fundamental goodness and cultivating our capacity to love unconditionally all that is.
In this series, Dr. Reginald Ray has created an unprecedented audio learning course to make this profoundly transformative path available to listeners everywhere. Spanning 33 CDs, it features meditations and insights previously unavailable to a general audience. Mahamudra is revered in Tibetan Buddhism as the most direct route to seeing the world in all its transcendent beauty, power, and perfection. With his gift for distilling esoteric teachings for today’s student, Dr. Ray has created a powerful training program for anyone seeking to engage in this life-altering journey, allowing us to discover this unsurpassed tradition for meeting ultimate reality — and awakening to the boundless freedom that is our fundamental nature.
In Tibetan spiritual life, the practice of body-based meditation has been revered throughout its history as a vital tool for cultivating spiritual awareness and physical well-being. Today, in a world overabundant with stimuli, these embodied practices are more relevant and useful than ever. This program includes six body-based meditations—including prana breathing, body awareness, abdominal breathing, earth-based meditation practice —drawn from Reggie’s longer series, Buddhist Tantra.
“Within my body are all the sacred places of the world,” the Buddhist saint Saraha once said, “and the most profound pilgrimage that I can ever make is within my own body.” For fifteen centuries, the realized masters of the tantric path used the crucible of their own lives to develop a powerful and accelerated means to enlightenment. Today, these teachings remain alive within the usually hidden inner courtyard of the Vajrayana vehicle of Tibetan Buddhism, a tradition that requires the courage to engage your body, your human desires, and your most challenging life obstacles as the basic fuel for insight.
For those who’ve worked with basic breath and body-based meditations, this course will be a revelation: step-by-step guidance into some of the most transformative and powerful experiences charted by Buddhism’s vast maps of consciousness. Drawing on decades of teaching and scholarship, Reggie Ray shares a 13-CD curriculum of practices and insights to access the deepest knowing enfolded in the Soma, the landscape of your physical body and the source of immediate and greatest fulfillment.
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. 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.
Your breath is a gateway to the vastness of the universe — and the path to your highest fulfillment. This is the premise behind Your Breathing Body, a landmark two-volume breathwork curriculum that will show you how to “fathom your breath to its full depths” for physical healing, emotional balance, and, ultimately, the direct experience of who you are and where you fit in the cosmos.
Volume Two contains 10 CDs for the advanced practitioner. Blending somatic practices and breathing techniques from cultures and traditions around the world, Reggie gives you a practice-focused program that will show you how to “fathom your breath to its full depths” for physical healing, emotional balance, and, ultimately, the direct experience of who you are and where you fit in the cosmos.
