“The clarity of the mind is nothing other than how you see, how you hear, how you feel… Yes, wisdom is transcendent, but you can open to it through the body.”
Our guest today is Jason Upton, an existential psychotherapist and senior lecturer at Regent’s University. Jason is also doing a PhD at SOAS on early Tibetan Buddhist practices which involve the body and sense perception. He has practised Kum Nye and other Tibetan movement practices for over 17 years.
Today, he enters in conversation with Scott Snibbe on ways to become embodied again. Jason will discuss his own experience with trauma, the benefits of Kum Nye, a Tibetan form of movement therapy, and his PhD research on the connection between the mind and the body.
