The practice

The point is not to learn a particular technique but instead to deepen and expand our feeling of the body. Based on the Kashmir Shaivite teaching, the postures are simple and the movements minimal. They place the body so that we can directly observe our tendency to control, to push or to limit the way we move.

The exploration centers on the general and peripheral feeling of the body. Guided step by step, it brings us gradually to the realization that it is natural for the body not to be separated from its environment. Sitting or standing, in a state of natural meditation, the  truth of sensation gradually reveals itself. We feel it open into space like a living current, modulating itself with the ebb and flow of the exercises. At the same time we allow breathing to lose its constraints, until it becomes attuned to the movements and naturally extends them. We can feel our mental activity, and its need to objectify, calming down. Our feeling of identity, rooted in the body-as-object, moves gradually into the experience of pure being. It is a journey, then, whose only requirement is to dare to refrain from representation and let the body speak, until ultimately it reveals its true dimension. A direct experience of Being, more powerful than any speech.

It is perfectly possible to adapt the practice to a position seated on a chair. No particular physical condition is required.

Nathalie Delay

Nathalie has always been an artist. She realized from earliest childhood that the experience of beauty opens the way to unfathomable depth. Moved by the intuition that a fundamental truth existed at the heart of reality, she became a passionate searcher. Her burning desire to live by what she instinctively knew brought her to the Kashmir Shaivite tradition when she was 26. For the next 25 years she studied the metaphysical aspects of this tradition as well as its different yogas, working with its best-known representatives (first Daniel Odier, then Éric Baret, student of Jean Klein).

 

Today, it is the very substance of reality, beyond any verbal expression, which inspires her and remains her only guide. The art of letting individual limitations burn up, in contact with Reality, is the only path she transmits to those who come to meet her. She's been teaching for ten years in Europe, Canada and California.
