Investigation: Supporting Conditions

Teacher: Tim Geil

Venue: Seattle Insight Meditation Center



Investigation can make our daily life a fruitful and profound spiritual practice. Yet, investigation can slip into analysis or rumination if not done with with a strong emphasis on the “felt sense” contained in the body’s sensations. Three components make investigation effective: steadiness of attention; knowing the difference between thoughts and direct experience; seeing investigation in service of unbinding and loosening our sense of self. This is the first talk in a series of three.


This week, hold the question “Where is there resistance in this moment?” Ask the question and focus on receiving what arises instead of identifying a particular answer. “Listen” very completely, receiving body sensation, emotion, and belief into awareness. Can you “listen” without the need to find an answer or having to act?
