Shared Content- Lower Left Quadrant(WE)

Usually the Awakened Mind is taught to groups ranging from a half dozen to thirty or more, and there is a reason for this. It is in a group setting that we can share our experiences and begin to see the commonalities in our experience. Often people who meditate in isolation, or without some guidance, will not recognize the significance of their experience or how to re-access the various state they have achieved.

Immediately after a guided meditation participants break into dyads to share their meditation experience. This serves the purpose of bringing as much of the state into awareness as possible. It is similar to awakening from a dream and writing it down, or sharing with a partner, so as not to forget it. It also serves to validate the importance of recall to our own subconscious, without this, awareness is quickly lost.

Finally, and almost inevitably, emotional issues and "Shadow" content will come up for a few, if not most, in the group. This gives everyone an opportunity to see how to deal with any issues that might arise for them. The technique we have found most useful for the greatest number of people is something called Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). This is simple to learn and has a broad range of applications to most run-of-the-mill emotional issues. In the hands of a skilled EFT therapist it can bring about some very profound changes in a very short period of time. There is also a group benefit as everyone uses EFT together to help resolve the emotional issues of individual participants. Integral theory also use a process known as "3-2-1" work for Shadow resolution. This lends itself easily to the EFT process. (3-2-1 Shadow EFT work.)
