10 am to 1 pm (Pacific Time – San Francisco, CA, USA) Time Zone Converter
This call is an invitation to Presence and to Neelam’s teaching, and a practical exploration of the role of the nervous system in Awakening and Freedom. The nervous system and its capacity to Be Here are essential elements for Awakening, Embodiment and for Freedom.
When unmet, un-experienced tendencies from the past arise, and we so often believe them and identify ourselves with them, so that they affect and manifest in our physiology and show up as thoughts, feelings, emotions and sensations.
When Ramana Maharshi was first asked by a devotee, deeply attracted by His Presence, to impart some direction on how to reach that state, he has written the simple instructions of who am I? Inquiry. This very direct approach – when done in the right way 🙂- immediately appraises us of the fact that Who we really are is Emptiness or Presence.
My personal path to Awakening was more through Devotion, Silence and “meeting of what is” rather than formal Inquiry; however, since I started teaching in 1996, I realized the value of Inquiry in my own Embodiment process, and for Awakening, Embodiment and Freedom. And in addition to Ramana’s Inquiry, I have developed several Inquiry processes with very practical and effective steps.
Inquiry, especially when combined with a practical knowledge of the Nervous System and the Brain, and of the role of the Nervous System’s capacity to Be Here, in Awakening Embodiment and Freedom, is a very powerful way to identify, address, and end suffering in the moment.
I want to invite you all to join me in this very direct and practical exploration.
Topics that may be covered during this program:
- Elements necessary for Awakening Embodiment and Freedom
- Everything arises in Presence And Everything is Ok just the way it is
- Embodied Okayness and what does it mean to Be Here
- The Cause of Suffering
- Introducing the Inquiry process and the Role of the Nervous Systems capacity in Being Here
Neelam is a direct disciple of HWL Poonja (affectionately known as Papaji), whose own teacher was Ramana Maharshi. Neelam’s unequivocal commitment to Truth helps us turn inward and release underlying patterns of conditioning which block the recognition of our True Nature. With the utmost tenderness, she invites us into the same recognition of Truth that her teacher, Papaji, transmitted to her, while helping us to address all aspects of daily living, including past conditioning and trauma.
“Awakening is a shift from identifying yourself as this body to knowing yourself as Presence. Freedom means a true independence from the past, where our ability to Be Here and the action in the moment are not guided by our attachment to the arising past. To truly be Free we need to embody our recognition of Presence, and that requires growing of the capacity of our nervous system to Be Here. It is in the meeting of what arises that we find true and lasting freedom.”
