In the yogic model of the person, mind and body are an interdependent
complex best understood as multiple systems of energy transfer among
“bodies” of increasingly subtle types of corporeality. A hallmark of the
Indo-Tibetan spiritual traditions is the notion that by means of mental
and physical disciplines of meditation and yoga it is possible to navigate
and target one’s subtle, or “vajra,” bodies, thereby effecting powerful
transformations within the individual’s life-system, including evolution
toward greater wisdom, compassion, creativity, and radical wellbeing.
Mapping the unseen territory of the subtle energetic bodies has thus
been a key preoccupation of Indo-Tibetan yoga practice traditions for
thousands of years. Contemporary enthusiasts will immediately
recognize the benefits of yoga and meditation in the form of improved
psycho-physical health and social wellbeing, but are perhaps less
familiar with how such benefits might relate to an inner world of nadi,
prana, bindu, and chakras. This is a series focussing on the energetic
body in Indo-Tibetan contemplative traditions. Each class consists of a
lecture component addressing central models, terms, and concepts of
yoga-based anatomy, along with instruction on the use of breath and
sound as practical methods for accessing one’s energetic body. Join Dr.
Campbell for this intellectual introduction to the maps of the subtle body
and an experiential exploration of the energies described in those maps.
