deeper still

John Stirk shares below an extract from his new book Deeper Still, and is teaching a workshop of the same name online on 5 February. Can the body be a gateway into something deeper, and can we discover our inner teacher there?

The reality of yoga proposes that we are asleep and yet to awaken to an abiding sense of total-ity. Initially developed to transcend our conditioning, yoga demanded an austere approach. The exercises are effective but the problem of conditioned minds is deeply embedded. For some, the reality may be the pleasure of the bodywork, for others it may be a deepening sense of self, or a shift in habitual behaviour. The philosophy not the bodywork has sustained yoga’s appeal over many centuries. At its core, yoga’s reality confronts and transcends our limits. We are aware of the physical limitations but generally unaware of the limitations of a conditioned consciousness. Addressing the problem of us takes more than bodywork, but our attraction to the sensory aspect can be used as a door to a deeper and sustainable transformation on other levels. We can use the body to engage with and transform consciousness.

We invite you to journey towards and through a sensory understanding, leading to profound insight, with yoga teacher John Stirk as he guides you beyond current experience and invites you to write your own story, develop your own script, ride the uncatchable wave that might be called yoga, and open up your creativity to the next level.
