We will explore various meditation techniques to journey from an unconscious to a conscious way of being. The state of meditation is often described as a clear state of being. To varying degrees, each of us are on the way to this level of awareness, however it is much easier to achieve a space of calmness and peace in a group setting.

Have you ever felt certain about something? Cognitive science is now revealing that consciousness and intelligence are an integrated system that arises not just in the mind but throughout the whole body. Come explore how meditating on the body increases your conscious connection to the deep subconscious wisdom that permeates and connects every cell of your body. Meditation holds the power to change how we think, feel, interact within life, and ultimately transform the ways in which we perceive and experience reality. Relationships, work, parenting and the overall quality of life increase when we center our attention on the present moment. How can mindful meditation help you with the conflicts and hurdles that life throws your way? What is the impact of meditation on various cognitive and behavioral functions? The latest research in neuroscience suggests that meditation and mindfulness training can produce positive, experience-based structural alterations in brain function. By adopting mindfulness, evidence suggests that a regular meditation practice may also slow down the age-related atrophy of certain areas of the brain which support improved overall physical well-being.

Consciousness surrounds the mind. Being mindful means that you can accept both the positive and the negative as it arises. We often operate with unconscious guidance in our daily lives. Whatever is unconscious has to be made conscious. Otherwise, you won’t be aware of your truth. Everyone, as they travel down their life’s path, has had situations or incidents happen to them that caused bliss, trauma and everything in-between.

Uncommon Wisdom Meditation & Wisdom Teachings Membership

with Kjirsten Sigmund

In a world constantly filled with noise and distraction—especially within the internal constructs of one's own mind—we have individually and culturally lost connection to the quieter and deeper essence of our being, of our true nature, of our soul. In these talks, dialogues, and guided meditations from our Inspirational Teachers reveal how we can not only connect to our ever-present sacred essence, but also operate from this place in a more wise, compassionate, and balanced way in our everyday human lives.

The heart of spiritual practice is the practice of inner listening and discovering what you value most deeply. As you tune into self-transcending values and recognize your caring for the world, your mode of being in life actually becomes your spiritual practice. Uncommon Wisdom is a path that shows how real spiritual practice is about a heartful expression of what is most true and meaningful to each of us. 

Topics vary and include:

  • The Foundation of Spirituality
  • Self-Transcending Values
  • Listening to the Call of Spirituality
  • Spirituality as an Expression of Our Values
  • The Unknown Dimension Inside Us
  • Recognizing Our Deep Caring
  • Getting to the Root of Suffering

Life never dies. It is eternal. Who we are can never be burned by fire, wetted by water, or pierced by an arrow. This is who we really are, but we have bought into the body and because we have bought into the body, we suffer.

Quotes:

"Our spirituality needs to be an expression of that which we value most highly in life."

"Life is a journey of looking inside for everything."

"Real spirituality—spirituality beyond mere belief—begins when we start to call our life into question.

“Gratitude teaches us to live with consciousness and purpose. When you are grateful for your life, you have a greater understanding of it. You are better equipped to see the complexities and layers of things, and the many components of other people’s lives which make them who they are. Everything becomes much less black and white. The truth is that the extremes are rarely what they seem to be."

"More Truth Will Set You Free."

"Pay attention to your thoughts, the quality of them and the emotions that arise from these. They are key factors on creating joy and peace or suffering and fear. Ask yourself honestly, Is this thought worth thinking?"

“Great realization often comes with some real encounter with humanness.”

“There’s a dimension of being, the foundation of being, that is always in the state of open, aware ease and peace.”

“Spirituality actually comes from the same place in us that childhood wonder does.”

"The subconscious is ninety percent of your mind. The conscious mind is only ten percent. It would seem that while we are awake, we are always thinking with our conscious mind. In reality, your subconscious mind is usually calling the shots. The difference in someone who is “excellent” in their unhappiness or frustration, and someone who is excellent in a more positive way, is how they have come to understand and use that ninety percent of their subconscious. Reaching down into that part of who you are, identifying your triggers and associations, then letting them go, is the path to affirmative excellence. Every event that has ever happened to you in your life has the possibility of being recalled, once you gain access to that ninety percent. One of the simplest methods to begin that process is learning how to take a deep breath and concentrate on opening your mind up to all 100% of what’s in there!"

"We are all happiest when we are serving that which in life is most meaningful to us."

"If we're not listening, then spirituality is just the pursuit of one idea after another, and we'll always remain unsatisfied and ungrounded in our lives."

"To find real peace you have to stop warring against yourself, if you are truly honest and looking at the core of who you are there is such a spark of innocence and love, who would ever want to attack something so pure?"

"Spirituality, in its deep sense, begins when we see the futility of endlessly trying to control experience. If we don't see that, then we'll use all of our spiritual practices as a means to control experience."

"Nearly everyone would agree that gratitude is something we all need to practice. How do we keep a sense of gratitude high in our consciousness? The tendency to compare what we have or don’t have to others, along with all the challenges we face, can get in the way of the meaning of what it is to be grateful. Your attitude is the most important part of gratitude. Gratitude has very little to do with what we are grateful for. Rather, it is our attitude towards it. No matter what life serves up at any particular moment, your attitude if positive, leads to gratitude. A negative attitude will only give you regret and emptiness."

Mindful meditation can help many aspects of our daily lives. Self-care is critical in everything you do. Making sure you are mindful about your habits, emotions, health, and outlook can make a true difference in how you continually feel. Before you can be of service to anyone else, you must take care of yourself.

What is Meditation?

When we truly pay attention, we experience meditation and mindfulness. No matter what method we use to get to that point, quieting the mind is the key. Meditation is a form of mental exercise that has become a popular health practice. It has achieved wide-ranging popularity in psychology, psychiatry, medicine, neuroscience, and beyond. Regular practice of meditation is reported to produce positive changes in mental state and psychological well-being that extend beyond the time of meditation.

Awareness

Awareness is the essence of our existence. It is within our reach all the time, and yet most of us do not recognize it. We can think of meditation as the partner of mindfulness, and quieting the mind as a necessity of mindfulness, to recognize this awareness and the truth of who we are.

Through meditation training and a mindfulness practice, we can cultivate a non-judgmemtal awareness of experiences in the present moment. This in turn can produce beneficial effects on well-being and stress-related symptoms.

Mindfulness is an umbrella term used to characterize a large number of practices, processes, and characteristics, largely defined in relation to the capacities of attention, awareness, memory/retention, and acceptance/discernment. Research suggests meditation and mindfulness practices positively affect attention regulation, body awareness, emotion regulation, and change in perspective on the self. 

At the heart of mindful meditation is detachment from the things in life we can’t control. When you allow all sensation and thought to flow through each moment, what flourishes within you is a welcoming, creative, and resilient environment for whatever comes your way.

The ocean does not become calm and still. That is not the nature of the ocean.  If we can learn to become familiar with the full expanse of the ocean, then even the biggest waves will no longer bother us.

Consciousness

What is the meaning of “consciousness”? Where does it come from, and how does it shape our lives? There’s the scientific view of consciousness which looks at details of the brain and its functions. Consciousness is also defined as our thinking, our perceptions, our system of beliefs and spirituality, and the entirety of our self-reflection. Though our reality seems dependent on what our external world looks like (where we live, our relationships, our economic situation, etc.) in truth, it’s our consciousness that creates our reality and determines what the external world is serving up at any given time.

The ego is often obsessed with what it is against. What are you for?

Presence

When faced with challenges we can easily start to feel the need to escape the suffering. We look for distractions from our reality or seek to be transformed in a way that changes everything. Mindfulness teaches us that the answer lies in concentration and focusing on the present. It is the acceptance of what is happening in the moment. Each experience, thought, or interaction is neither “good” nor “bad.” It is all part of the continuum that flows throughout our lives. Instead of escaping from a situation or a feeling, mindfulness focuses on acceptance and sidestepping the battle we can find ourselves in if we resist being fully in the present. 

Got Stress?

The amygdala is widely regarded as one of the most important limbic structures in prevailing models of stress states and anxiety disorders. It receives information from sensory modalities and projects this information to other subcortical structures. This in turn mediates stress-related behavioral and psychological effects such as stress-hormone release and blood pressure elevation. Stress has significant adverse effects on health and is a risk factor for many illnesses. Neurobiological studies have implicated the amygdala as a brain structure crucial in stress responses. 

The amygdala, often regarded as the "fight or flight" center, is the primal region of the brain associated with fear and emotion, which plays a key role in the initiation of the body's response to stress. The latest research in neuroscience demonstrates in MRI scans that after an eight-week course of mindfulness practice, the amygdala appears to shrink.

As the amygdala shrinks, the pre-frontal cortex – associated with higher order brain functions such as awareness, concentration and decision-making – becomes thicker.

The “functional connectivity” between these regions – i.e. how often they are activated together – also changes. The connection between the amygdala and the rest of the brain becomes weaker, while the connections between areas associated with attention and concentration become stronger.

The scale of these changes correlate with the number of hours of meditation practice the person has completed.

Meditation is the only intentional, systematic human activity which at bottom is about not trying to improve yourself or get anywhere else, but simply to realize where you already are.”
