SITMEDITATION is an “inquiry based” practice focused on raising awareness of the internal polarizations that keep us participating in stress producing cycles of inner-conflict and compulsive internal-dialogue (Monkey Mind).
It is a method of meditation that integrates the perennial wisdom of ancient practices such as the Socratic method from the west and Non-duality from the east with more modern psychotherapeutic dynamics. It is centered around eight archetypical self-organizational layers that keep people revolving in the same old behavior patterns. It represents a powerful pathway to expand awareness, move through internal challenges, and stay free of reactionary triggers that so often lead into conflict and a diminished sense of well-being. It integrates the most powerful elements of meditation practice; such as presence, ascendence, and transcendence, along with concepts borrowed from gestalt therapy; such as, awareness, avoidance, polarities, emerging ground, and flow.
In SITMEDITATION existentialism meets spirituality as basic emotional needs are acknowledged in the process of freeing ourselves from compulsive desire, misidentification, and suffering.
SITMEDITATION was developed by Morgan Goodlander as a result of his five year apprenticeship under the guidance of a meditation teacher and his many years of experience as a leadership consultant and gestalt therapist.
