Reginald A. Ray: The Body Is Already Awake

Reginald A. Ray, PhD, is the founder of the Dharma Ocean Foundation and a spiritual teacher in the lineage of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche who focuses on the somatic teachings transmitted through the Tibetan Tantra. In this excerpt from his audio learning series The Practice of Pure Awareness—introduced by Reginald’s student and Sounds True founder Tami Simon—he discusses how the physical body already contains the liveliness we often seek through meditation. According to Tami, “Through what [Reginald] calls ‘somatic meditation,’ we discover an inherent, preexisting wakefulness—the wakefulness of the very cells of our body.”
