Know Thyself ~ entrance to the Delphi Temple of Apollo
Join me on Zoom for bi-weekly yoga classes exploring what it means to Know Thyself In Motion. Inspired by teachings of the wisdom traditions, gentle/functional movement which is grounded in the decades of Kimberly’s study, refinement and teaching of therapeutic yoga will be the foundation of inquiring deeply into our experience of Now. Each class will include asana, shavasana and conclude with meditation. If you are drawn to a meditative approach to movement, you may find this surprisingly nourishing.
Know Thyself MeditationTM is a direct path application of the central teaching of all the great wisdom traditions. Through this practice, we invite attention to discover the immediate, self-evident, universal reality of aware being, our conscious presence, accessible here-and-now, always. We also explore all aspects of our being: How we relate to our sensory perceptions, body, thoughts (including autobiographical memory), emotions, and personality (including its shadow elements). And we inquire deeply into how we relate to “others”, and to our sense of the “Divine”.
Know Thyself Meditation was developed by Kimberly and Jim Carson based on their decades of delving into various types of meditation – especially mindfulness meditation as originated in Buddhist traditions, and self-inquiry meditation as taught in the nondual yoga traditions of Vedanta and Kashmir Shaivism. Know Thyself Meditation has been the foundation of the Carson’s various research studies demonstrating the beneficial effects of the Mindful Yoga program (see Research).
