Cynthia Bourgeault Introduces Fourth Way Wisdom Work Copy

Cynthia Bourgeault heralds this Building Second Body teaching series as “…the leading edge of my own thinking.”  

Her inspiration for offering these teaching sessions was spurred by the enthusiastic response to what has become known as Cynthia’s Eastertide Challenge, where she laid out six key practice invitations, as a means to “acknowledgeexplore, and live out of our second or Kesdjan body…”

The recordings provided here were filmed live at a small Wisdom gathering in Stonington Maine in June 2022. This new teaching series has been curated from a selection of those recorded sessions, offering a unique and practical set of instructions for developing the spiritual substances and conscious presence so needed in our world today.

Through the all-important route of steadily enlivening and subtilizing sensation/attention in the first body, one develops the second body as the vessel to hold and enact higher and finer dimensions of consciousness.  What you will find here is what Cynthia considers essential, foundational ‘technologies for transformation.”

These materials are rooted in some core concepts and applications of the teachings of G. I. Gurdjieff, whose body of work continues to influence Cynthia’s dynamic approach to the Wisdom path.  Having a basic introduction to Gurdjieffian writings and terminology will be helpful as an entry point to these Building Second Body sessions.  

The video teachings include over 7 hours of Cynthia’s eight teaching sessions, 4 audio recordings of inner task practices for building second body, and supplementary material referenced in the video teachings (books, chants, poetry, music, articles, and recorded zoom sessions).

COMING THIS OCTOBER:  Rebuilding Trust -Teaching by Cynthia Bourgeault with Matthew Wright, filmed at Mepkin Abbey in February 2022. Cynthia describes this forthcoming material as a complimentary teaching series for the Building Second Body sessions.
