Taught by expert teachers in their specialized field
Sensation and Consciousness: Original Body Workshop
With John Stirk
Starting on 13 June 2020 Go to schedule
We're very happy and honoured to invite John Stirk to Delight Yoga for the first time.
We study the body but cannot help but be students of the mind. As we work with the finer elements of sensation, the mind is ever-present rarely if ever-switching itself off. How can we engage this continuum of activity to enhance insight and understanding? The body houses consciousness, minds, and selves and maybe approached accordingly. Each sensory nuance and realization has a psychological and emotional counterpart. The unitive experience provides the essence of yoga. We cannot divide the indivisible.
This workshop is a condensation of John’s book ' The Original Body' and reflects the scope of his ' What lies Beneath ' Courses. This practical workshop will include discussion on the physiological, psychological and emotional insight that arises as we work together.
We will use the following as an open guide:
- The Group field - the Physiology and Psychology of groups
- The Approach most suited for addressing the conditioned ego
- Consciousness in Western Terms - Dynamic Consciousness
- Sensation and Heightened Consciousness - The Skin - The presence of the Heart
- The Nature of Attention
- Emotion insight and Wisdom
- Process, what comes up in group work?
- Dividing the Indivisible
- Materiality and Non-materiality and the nature of experience
- The Body as the Mind
