Ken Wilber is a renowned philosopher and author who created this course to guide you through a deep mindfulness practice towards “waking up” and “growing up” your own spiritual evolution.
Every great spiritual avatar of the past, from Buddha to Jesus, experienced freedom through a contemplative practice. But in today’s expanding world, you need more than old methods in order to truly evolve.
What Is Full Spectrum Mindfulness?
Full Spectrum Mindfulness combines a deep mindfulness practice with leading-edge discoveries in neuroscience and developmental psychology. It is designed to give you what you need to dramatically deepen your awareness and healing of those hidden issues that still drive your behavior no matter how many self-help books you’ve read, or retreats you’ve attended.
The goal of the Full Spectrum Mindfulness course is to help you unlock these hidden aspects that we call “shadows,” through a time tested mindfulness practice called witnessing. You will be amazed what a difference it will make in your life.
Through this course you will learn how to take a “full spectrum scan” of your total being, shining a light into some of the hardest-to-reach corners of your psyche. It will help you locate and upgrade outdated coping strategies, discover and heal trouble spots in your system, and tap into the power of mindfulness in healing issues you may have concerning food addictions and impulsive and obsessive behavior.
How is it different from other mindfulness practices?
Simple. It gets beneath the surface.
Most other approaches to mindfulness allow you to become more conscious of whatever is happening in the moment, helping you bring more awareness to your thoughts, emotions, and surrounding environment as they arise in your consciousness. There are dozens of truly amazing mindfulness techniques out there that truly excel at this, any one of which can become an important part of your life.
However, while these traditional techniques do an excellent job of helping you become more mindful of the surface features of your moment-to-moment experience, they have a much more difficult time getting to the deep features of your consciousness — those aspects of your psyche that cannot easily be seen through contemplation or introspection alone, yet exert an enormous influence upon your perceptions, your reactions, and the way you make sense of the world.
These are the invisible structures through which you filter all of your experiences. Studied, tested, and verified across all known cultures by some of the world’s greatest psychologists, these deep structures give shape to your thoughts, add color to your emotions, and bring coherence to your identity.
Full Spectrum Mindfulness is the very first approach to help you wake up and grow up as you become more familiar and fluent with both the surface features and the deep features of your mind, allowing you to expand your awareness to the innermost depths of your being.
Awareness is curative.
Some of the most difficult knots in your psyche — the ones that hold you back, limit your joy, and sometimes even cause you pain —can often be loosened and released simply by bringing conscious awareness to them. Existing mindfulness practices can be an ideal way to deliver this curative awareness. But here’s the problem: all conventional approaches to mindfulness can do is help you become more conscious of the symptoms. What they can’t do is get you to the deeper source of the issue. They are unable to bring curative awareness to the innermost parts of you.
Conventional mindfulness techniques will help you become more aware of your overall thought and behavior patterns, like noticing the difference between emotional eating and genuine hunger for example. However, these patterns are often just the surface ripples of a much deeper challenge lurking far below the surface of your conscious mind — your overall relationship with food, in this case, which first began to come online when you were a baby before you began forming memories.
Which means that even our very best approaches to mindfulness over the centuries have been incomplete. After all, if you’re only scratching the surface of your mind, how full can your mindfulness practice possibly be?
