IST DAY with Billy Doyle 23 March 2019
Exploring the Energy Body and Self-Inquiry.
Description of the event
The morning will be a practical session exploring the energy body (the subtle body), not as an idea but experiencing it in stillness and in movement. The energy body permeates and surrounds the physical body; it gives it life. Often through tension it is paralysed and we do not experience it. Only through a deep relaxation and listening to the body does it come alive. We discover in the process our real body to be vibration, light, transparent and expanded in space. In this practice we avoid all mechanical movement and end gaining, but live moment to moment in the sensation. Old patterns melt away and we are open to deeper dimensions of ourselves. It brings us to know ourselves in silence.
The morning will also incorporate pranayama and meditation and time for feedback and questions.
In the afternoon there will be a short talk and discussion on the theme: What is our real nature, who am I? This will be followed by posture work and guided meditation and relaxation.
