Welcome to The Consciousness Explorers Club
Being human takes practice
Join our monthly newsletter for announcements about our meditations, explorations, retreats, courses and events.
This month at CEC, we’ll explore narrative as a practice in conjunction with meditation: plunging into the wild depths of story country and then popping back out onto the misty shores of equanimous-observer-land.
I approach meditation for what it is: a thrilling exploration – and transformation – of consciousness. Course features a mix of guided practice, discussion, and weekly meditation-in-action homework assignments. It is both practical and contemplative, with an honest take on both the limitations of meditation practice, as well as its strange and beautiful existential dimensions.
Next class starts Fall 2017
“Jeff Warren is an exceptional teacher. He explains difficult, intangible subjects with razor clarity. His enthusiasm is contagious and never wanes – not for his subject or for his students, all of whom he treats with warmth, empathy and professionalism.” – Roy Baskind, neurologist
In meditation the skill of concentration is both the engine and steering wheel of practice. Very simply, concentration is the skill of intentionally controlling attention. Putting your mind where you want it to go rather than letting it be swept wherever the winds of unconscious mental habits would carry it.
Many people, especially busy urban dwellers, feel overwhelmed and undernourished. They struggle alone with their challenges, and are only rarely able to discuss – let alone practice – deep matters of belonging and connection and embodiment. The vision of The Consciousness Explorers Club (CEC) is to provide a fun and accessible venue where people can discuss these things as they emerge from perspective-altering spiritual and psychological and social practices. Our members go on mind-body adventures – together and independently – and then share their insights and discoveries and inspiration with the community.
