2010-03-02 Seeing the Body as a Body 46:31
  Janet Taylor
This talk is an overview of the contemplative practices of the first foundation of mindfulness—mindfulness of the body—with particular focus on the 32 body parts contemplation. Contemplating the body parts can break the enchantment with the body and the belief that it is beautiful, and bring about insight into not-self. Seeing the body as a conglomeration of parts and processes reveals its empty nature because a self cannot be found. Contemplating the body processes, which includes the brain, reveals that preferences for certain experiences are no more than physiological reactions based on past and present conditions. By clearly seeing what the body is, we see what it is not: it is not a self.
