“When the body is aware of itself, then we can ask a further and perhaps more difficult question: can thought, which has put together this whole consciousness, be aware of itself? Most of the time thought dominates the body, and so the body loses its vitality, intelligence, its own intrinsic energy, and hence has neurotic reactions. Is the intelligence of the body different from total intelligence, which can come about only when thought, realizing its own limitation, finds its right place?” – J. Krishnamurti, The Whole Movement of Life is Learning. Register here>
What does it mean for the body to be intelligent? Do we exert control over our body? Do we feel separate from our body, as if I have a self which can control the body? Please join us at the beautiful serene Pepper Tree Retreat for a weekend of yoga practices, dialogues, and exploration into what it means to be embodied.
