Deep inquiry— “Inquiring Deeply”— is awareness practice focused on deepening your understanding of your emotional life. Deep emotional understanding is more than simply mindfulness. It is intuitive understanding grounded in personal history, embodied experience, and the felt sense of things. The emphasis in deep inquiry is on exploring the field of relational connection with others.
“Inquiry” means to live in the question of something, on and off the cushion; to consciously engage your experience in a way which invites it to unfold. When you ‘inquire deeply’ into a problem or concern, you approach your experience with the attitude of delving into it, feeling whatever it is more fully, and inviting it to reveal itself.
Inquiry explores your relationship with other people and expands to include your relationship with life itself. Through this self-reflective awareness practice, you become more fully who you are.
