Level 4 DVDs

Dr Graham Williams
Lifeflow meditation mindfulness Adelaide dvd level four modules 01

These meditation DVDs are based on the Lifeflow Level 4 Meditation course.

Philosophy and neuroscience are now examining the nature of consciousness at a level not previously explored. A key outcome of advanced meditation practice is that you can experience human consciousness directly by seeing how your own mind works. You discover it can be still rather than thinking all the time, which is a fairly common belief in the psychology and academic worlds, and that you can be aware while not thinking. You also discover that thinking is simply your mind moving.

Level 4 provides the maps, structures and knowledge to integrate the infinite nature of your mind with the finite nature of your body – to understand their interdependence and how they work together. These are based both on Buddhist traditions and the discoveries of neuroscience and psychology, and provide a solid foundation for your own wellbeing, your personal development, your spiritual growth and for living a meaningful life. Western culture’s research into individual human identity and human relationships provides the everyday counterpart to the meditation tradition’s direct observations of the human mind and emotions.

This course is taught by Lifeflow Director, Dr Graham Williams who has over thirty five years' experience teaching both meditation and mindfulness. See Graham's full biography here.

Level 4 Modules content:

Module 1 – Integration 401

In this module you are introduced to the basic structure of the brain and see how closely the meditation practices taught mirror this structure. They provide a way to become aware of and use resources that normally remain unseen. These practices enable you to understand, balance, observe and work skilfully with your emotions and instincts in the same way that you learn to work with your thoughts in the Calm and Concentration modules.

Topics covered include:

  • Opening your heart centre and moving your awareness consciously from your head to your heart
  • Moving your awareness from your navel centre to your heart and linking the whole range of your emotions and energies from the head to the navel
  • Centring the energy of your body at your heart and experiencing the ground of ecstasy
  • Learning how to focus and centre your breath and experience joy and bliss
  • How to bring the bliss of your body together with the realisation of the open space of your mind
  • How to recognise the luminosity of consciousness
  • How to apply these exercises in everyday life

Module 2 – Calm & Concentration 402

This module completes an advanced examination of the practices for developing calm and concentration. It gives a detailed description of how different meditations suit different people and how different personality types approach meditation.

Topics covered include:

  • A detailed description of the deepening levels of meditative absorption
  • A description of different personality types and their approach to meditation
  • The kinds of realisations each type can have
  • The different paths of meditation
  • The advanced practice of meditating on space, both on the inner and outer planes

Module 3 – Mindfulness and Insight 403

This module brings together the complementary practices of Mindfulness and Insight meditation in the Buddhist tradition and shows how they can be valuable resources in daily life. It shows how the practice of mindfulness leads to the experience of insight into the nature of our minds, and provides the opportunity to explore, in both a theoretic and practical way, the experience of human consciousness.

Topics covered include:

  • Maps of the mind from both Western culture and the meditation tradition
  • The process of consciousness and how perceptions are formed
  • How what we see and experience is shaped by our minds
  • How to become aware of the stories that shape your life
  • How to gain the balance and clarity to base your actions on clear, true perceptions

Module 4 – Meditation in action (Ethics) 404

This module is particularly aimed at applying the resources, knowledge and techniques learned in the other modules to your daily life so that you can live happily and skillfully in your body, in your community and in the environment. It explains how the way our consciousness works, outlined in the Mindfulness module, is associated with basic emotional drives that can be readily transformed and used effectively when making decisions and acting on them.

Topics covered include:

  • Transforming the emotional states that drive our habitual actions
  • How each emotional state we experience has the same core of awareness
  • Recognising that being open to all these states is the key to understanding and experiencing love

Module 5 – Integration 405

This module traces the stages you go through as you build emotional strength and resources. It outlines all the different ways you can experience human consciousness and focuses on building a clear understanding of the difference between your instincts and emotions. It also shows how to harness the resources of your instincts to build and sustain good feelings, healthy emotions and your own wellbeing.

Topics covered include:

  • The different levels of consciousness
  • A detailed description of the energy centres
  • The relationship between self and shadow and how this affects your relationships
  • The difference between repressing, containing and transforming emotions and how to transform emotional states
  • How to link your instinctual feelings with your rational mind
  • How emotions are generated
  • Being honest and kind with yourself

Module 6 – Calm & Concentration 406

This module focusses on the wide variety of meditations in the tradition. Importantly, it demonstrates how they can be applied in everyday life. The module also looks at how different meditation exercises have been deliberately designed to produce differing levels of concentration and which meditations suit which personality type.

Topics covered include:

  • A detailed description of the different kinds of meditation
  • The level of absorption each meditation opens
  • An explanation of meditation focused on an object and meditation without an object
  • Which meditations suit different personality types
  • A description of the different ways of visualising
  • The three different categories of mantra

Module 7 – Mindfulness and Insight 407

Maps that explain how the human mind is structured and how it works are as invaluable as geographical maps. This module outlines a detailed map for understanding the process we call consciousness and shows how you can observe this process directly in your own meditation practice. It also outlines the different kinds of experience you can have in meditation and how they unfold in distinct stages.

Topics covered include:

  • The different goals of meditation and mindfulness
  • How your mind follows particular stages every time you concentrate
  • The different stages leading to seeing clearly – the experiences of insight
  • A detailed description of all the experiences that open up in meditation
  • The different ways of acquiring knowledge
  • The progressive levels of insight into human consciousness

Module 8 – Meditation in action (Ethics) 408

This module is particularly aimed at applying the resources, knowledge and techniques learned in the other modules to your daily life so that you can live happily and skillfully in your body, in your community and in the environment. It demonstrates how our values provide the foundation for developing inner strength, confidence and a meaningful life.

Topics covered include:

  • Looking at the issues of motivation and will from both Eastern and Western perspectives
  • How we act – where does action begin and where does it end?
  • The process of decision and habit and how to see these at a deeper level
  • The interdependence of our inner and outer lives, and of everything that exists
