Inquiry into Awakening
with Jeff P!
Inquiry Into Awakening:
Prior to thought, before you have a concept or conclusion about anything, anything at all – presence is so. Presence prior to the imagination of self is the firmament of wonder, of innocence, of freedom. This presence has always been, no effort or practice of any kind is necessary to sense the origin and emptiness of yourself.
What can be helpful in the discovery of your unadorned nature are informal forums or salons where this observation is encouraged and supported by the simplicity of being, the pleasure of inquiry, the nourishment of conversation. The Night Sky Sangha holds regular meetings to honor and celebrate the nature of presence without pretense or performance pressure.
As one becomes acquainted with presence and the inherent freedom from finding anything at all, one’s consciousness expands to embrace this innate wisdom – seeking nothing from anyone or anything is home. Palpable immersion in the objectless texture of present experience leads invariably to liberation.
Jeff P. has been facilitating weekly meetings of the Night Sky Sangha since 2010. Before then he has enjoyed numerous contemplative traditions including study in India and elsewhere of Kundalini Yoga and Absorption practices, Buddhist Vipassana practices, Kashmiri Yoga & Presence practices, Shamanic Journey Work, Tibetan Phurba Rituals, Somatic Therapies, Addiction & Recovery work, and a bunch of other stuff.
The important thing to bear in mind is that prior experience, while beneficial in some ways, can be seen to amount to nothing special.
