ENGAGED ECOLOGY

represents the latest work of our annually returning guest teacher Godfrey Devereux. We are proud of presenting it to you:

The internal journey is no longer enough. We are already well within an ecological calamity beyond anything human beings have ever had to deal with. To meet the challenges to come, we, individually and collectively, need to consolidate and steward all resources available to us.

Our two most potent resources are ourselves, and each other. This workshop will provide you with the tools to develop an embodied and engaged resilience that will allow you to meet the coming challenges with courage, compassion, dignity and solidarity regardless of circumstance.

Opening to Wholeness

The morning session will establish the motor and experiential pathways necessary to experience the presence of wholeness in and as your breathing and your body. This deeply undermines the anxiety and insecurity that arise from the sense of separateness. These pathways provide direct access to the safety and support of wholeness. Suitable for anyone.

Deepening into Wholeness

The afternoon session will establish the perceptual and experiential pathways necessary to become intimate with the presence and nature of wholeness. These pathways will be opened and stabilised through deep intimacy with your own presence taking place in stillness. Subtle and potent perceptual lenses will be used to deepen the pathways through which security and support can flow into your daily life. Suitable for anyone.

The morning session will establish the practical basis for opening stable pathways into embodied love. These pathways will be opened and stabilised through soft, sensitive, repetitive movements linked to the natural rhythm of the breath. The simple, dynamic practices used will generate and stabilise neuromuscular pathways that will access the love that you most deeply are. Suitable for anyone.

Deepening the Pathways of Love

The afternoon session will establish the perceptual and experiential pathways necessary to fully access the love that you most deeply are. These pathways will be opened and stabilised through deep intimacy with your own presence taking place in stillness. Subtle and potent perceptual lenses will be used to deepen the pathways through which love can flow from the invulnerability of your spiritual nature. Suitable for anyone.

Godfrey’s yoga journey

Godfrey has been teaching and practicing yoga for over 40 years. He has been able to cast clear light on the subtleties of yoga practice. His pioneering journey resulted in a systematic exploration of the relationship between body, mind and consciousness. Godfrey’s teachings of yoga are presented as the Dynamic Yoga Training Method which relies on the inherent intelligence of the body rather than flexibility, skill or strength. It allows anyone to enjoy a posture practice that actually can be yoga without losing touch with what makes each one of us distinct and unique.

At the heart of his teaching is a presentation of yoga as unity, rather than union. His understanding of yoga and life has been profoundly affected by professional training in Child Development and Education, Oriental Medicine and dedicated studies with masters of Zen, Advaita and Tantra as well as Indian Yoga Gurus.

Radical Ecology

as developed by Godfrey quite recently is a homecoming into an Embodied Solidarity with the Wholeness of Life.
It has five principles of embodiment: Wholeness, Support, Solidarity, Compassion and Generosity. These five principles emerge directly from the embodied experience of  wholeness. This experience begins in the physical separateness of your own body. Within that separateness you clearly experience the presence of wholeness. This experience deepens from separateness into connectedness and the support that provides. Further deepening through interconnectedness generates an embodied solidarity with all forms of life. A dissolution through boundarylessness elicits compassion for all ‘others’. Finally boundarylessness dissolves into otherlessness embodied as a boundless generosity.

Radical Ecology is an experiential journey of embodiment from heart to heart. It brings you deep into the heart of your own nature, to take you deep into the heart of the world.
