Non-Duality For Dummies: An Introduction to the Personal Benefits of Living as a "We" Based Society
What if you were to relate to everything outside your body as your Outer Body? What if you discovered that the more you nurtured, and supported your Outer Body, the more it nurtured, and supported you in return - making your life far more successful?
Damien Jones and Jenna Chandler will be presenting 'The Outer Body Paradigm" on Thursday October 4th from 7pm to 8:30pm at Authentic SF • 47 Moss Street, San Francisco, Ca. The 90 minute presentation will include a lecture, and experiential exercise and a question an answer session to actively engage participants in the experience of The Outer Body Paradigm.

The Outer Body Paradigm is a radical new context that leads the practitioner to a far deeper, more powerful, more connected experience of Life, thru simple exercises and practices of relating to the World, and all the people in it, as your Outer Body. Here’s the idea: You have your Inner Body, which is all the stuff encased by your skin — that which you experience as yourself — and then everything outside your skin is your Outer Body — the rest of the Cosmos. What you normally experience as “Not I” then becomes a part of yourself, and once you start relating to it thru this perspective, even in small ways, the feedback loop starts building on itself, leading to a more balanced, fulfilled and extraordinary Life!
From this perspective, your relationship with your OB (Outer Body) is the most important relationship in your life If you look at things this way, you might notice that you’re completely dependent on your OB for everything you want and need to survive and thrive. For example, if your OB disappeared all of a sudden, you’d cease to exist as well. Everything you want and desire in life, whether it’s the love of your life or the latest (insert gadget here) or a better world or a better job — all of that comes to you thru your OB. Our level of satisfaction and fulfillment is largely shaped and guided by our relationship with our OB, which determines how successful we are at making our ideas, dreams and visions actually happen in the world.
Therefore, if you start to look at this as a relationship, and if you then start nurturing that relationship consciously, what you’ll find is that the more you love, support and appreciate your OB, the more it loves, supports and appreciates you back! In this way your Inner Body’s needs and desires are fulfilled more successfully and sustainably. Through various practices you can engage this paradigm in your life on a daily basis, and these devotional acts weave a strong web of interconnected relatedness, both in your inward experiences and in your outward accomplishments.

Weaving the We was created by Damien Jones and his colleague, Jenna Chandler - two Bay Area visionaries who are combining their respective and overlapping expertise in Conscious Awareness and Nonviolent Communication, Relating and Mediation, to create a practical and fulfilling methodology of transcending the effects of duality and separateness and making the shift to a new "We" based global culture - one that rises above the mastery that we've achieved as an "I" based culture, yet includes and understands the reasoning behind it, offering a smooth transition into the next phase of oneness.
