Reminding Yourself of the Forgotten Language of Talking to the Body Mind
With Dr. Joie Taylor
Friday May 17th 7 to 9pm
Talking to the Body Mind is a meditative therapy designed as a 1 hour 7 day process. Joie will guide us through a sample of the process that can be then developed as your own practice.
We reconnect with the body mind, making friends with it, and then start a healing process by communicating with the unconscious mind. It is a useful tool for weight control, eliminating migraines, body aches and pains, or anything in the body which is out of natural balance.
This guided meditation is a process of being reminded of a language most of us have forgotten. It’s the language of communicating with your own body. Modern medical science is beginning to recognize that the mind and body are not separate entities but deeply related.
“You are not divided in two, body and mind. Body and mind are one thing, psychosomatic, bodymind. The body is just the beginning of your mind and the mind is nothing but the end of the body. So whatever happens in the body effects the mind and whatsoever happens in the mind effects the body. They run parallel.”
Osho: Yoga the Alpha and Omega
"It's all in your head" - most of us have heard this expression more than once in our lives when we were complaining about this or that physical ailment or emotional difficulty… and although we might have denied it, we probably secretly suspected it was true. The problem is that just intellectually understanding that "it's all in my head" doesn't help. As Osho points out often in his talks, the thin layer of the conscious mind - the part that intellectually understands something - is only a tenth of our reality. The unconscious layers are far bigger, and when we're not in touch with them they can be far more powerful.
The body need not be forced, it can be persuaded. One need not fight with the body -- that's ugly, violent, aggressive, and any sort of conflict is going to create more and more tension. So you need not be in any conflict -- let comfort be the rule. And the body is such a beautiful gift from existence that to fight with it, is to deny existence itself. It is a shrine... we are enshrined in it; it is a temple. We exist in it and we have to take every care of it -- it is our responsibility.
It is this set of relationships - between the conscious and unconscious layers of the mind, and their influence on the body and our overall sense of well being - that Osho addresses in a revolutionary technique he developed in 1989, just two months before he left the body. It started as an experiment with his own body, when his shoulder was giving him a great deal of pain. According to notes taken by his secretary at the time, Osho told his shoulder to "drop the pain" and it did - literally! - as the pain dropped from the shoulder first into the arm, and then the leg. But he kept on experimenting, and invited others also to experiment with a technique of talking to the body and asking it to drop the pain, that it was no longer needed and once gone there was no need to bring it back. Over the next few days and weeks, a new meditative therapy of "Reminding Yourself of the Forgotten Language of Talking to the Body and Mind" was born. It is now offered as a seven-day series of one-hour sessions at the Osho Meditation Resort in Pune, India, and offered around the world by individuals who have been trained in the process. This session will be a sample at Decatur Healing Arts will give you a sample.

“Aloha I enjoy the benefits that meditation has brought to my life and am inspired to share it. The benefits of meditation vary for each individual. Silence, bliss, clarity, expansion of consciousness, increased ability to relate to others, relaxation, self realization, capability to remain centered in stressful situations, expanded creativity, a knack for living moment to moment. It is a privilege for me to share this with others and I am very grateful.”
