We’re pleased to announce Awakening Through the Pain-Body, a first-of-its-kind online course with Kim Eng.
The program contains over eight hours of teachings, including live talks and Q&A sessions with Kim, a special teaching with Eckhart Tolle, and bonus video teachings and meditations.
This course is a unique journey with my teaching partner Kim Eng that helps you free yourself from one of the main obstacles to spiritual awakening—the pain-body.
Dissolving the Pain-Body with Presence
The Pain-Body is akin to an emotional entity in human beings. It stems from an accumulation of emotional pains suffered in the past that weren’t fully faced or were possibly repressed. The pain-body is often connected with pain suffered in the past because of the unconsciousness of the people around you—your parents, family members, spouse, partner, co-workers, etc.
Emotional pain that isn’t transmuted or processed doesn’t just go away; it accumulates and lives in the pain-body. Identifying with the pain-body is the essence of unconsciousness. You’re not present when you are identified with the pain-body.
Shining the light of awareness on the pain-body breaks identification with it
As Presence arises and the pain-body dissolves, you’ll experience enormous benefits in many areas of your life. Your thinking ceases to be clouded by emotion and your present perceptions are no longer distorted by the past. The pain-body becomes a powerful ally in spiritual awakening instead of an entity that creates anguish and unhappiness. It no longer has power over you because you have transformed your pain into Presence.
So how do you initiate this transformation? How do you free yourself from the grip of the pain-body?
If you are ready, then you can learn to free yourself from identifying with the pain-body. The beginning of freedom first lies in the realization that you have a pain-body. Then, by bringing Presence to the pain-body continually and making that your practice, eventually the pain-body dissolves and you become free of it.
The teachings, practices, and meditations that Kim will share with you contribute to a lessening of the pain-body. They help you bring consciousness into the pain-body so that when it arises in everyday life, you can feel the energy of it and be there as an aware witness. You look at the pain-body fully for what it is and learn to stay present while it runs its course. That’s the art of awakening consciousness.
Enjoy these practices—the meditations and the adventure of spiritual awakening.
This four-week journey enables you to return to wholeness and inner balance, resulting in an ease and flow with the present moment and alignment with your authentic self.
The pain-body is an accumulation of stress, negativity, fear, and old emotional wounds that affect our health and sense of well-being—physically, emotionally, mentally, and energetically.
When our sense of well-being is compromised, we forget who we really are. We become contracted and out of alignment with our true nature—the soul. This contraction and misalignment creates further struggle with life, and further resistance to living in the present moment.
This journey with Kim Eng offers an orientation to the pain-body and the subtle ways that it influences our lives as well as practical tools for letting go of the fear and negativity that bind us.
In addition to the teachings every week, you will also receive a downloadable workbook and bonus teachings that include guided meditations and practices to support you on your journey.
Discover how to flow with the present moment and align with your true nature.
Get to know your pain-body—how it arises, what fuels it, and how it assists in awakening.

The Pain-Body: The Hidden Secret Behind Self-Realization
Thursday, October 19, 2017 – 8:00 PM EDT | 5:00 PM PDT
The pain-body is an accumulation of old emotional wounds, affecting our health and sense of well-being physically, emotionally, mentally, and energetically. It can also affect our state of consciousness if we are not present enough. Kim says, “You can awaken through the pain-body. There is no way to escape it; the way out is the way through.” Session highlights include:
Resist Nothing: Finding Inner Freedom
Thursday, October 26, 2017 – 8:00 PM EDT | 5:00 PM PDT
The cornerstone to any spiritual practice is to surrender—to “resist nothing,” as Kim calls it. When we surrender to the present moment and resist nothing, we live in alignment with life. The saying, “What we resist, persists,” contains a deep truth. The nature of the ego and pain-body is either to hold on, grasp, and accumulate—or to resist fully. Session highlights include:
Detaching from the Self-Image: You Are Not Who You Think You Are
Thursday, November 2, 2017 – 8:00 PM EDT | 5:00 PM PDT
Your self-image is a mask, a role. When we identify with the role, the ego arises. Kim provides effective practices for dealing with egoic patterns. Session highlights include:
Journey into Stillness: Your True Home
