A day of Yoga in the Kashmir tradition, Pranayama, Meditation, Self-Enquiry & Discussion with Billy Doyle
Yoga in the Kashmir tradition, Pranayama, Meditation, Self-Enquiry & Discussion
Sunday May 14th, 2023
10:00 – 16:30
Meeting held at Colet House and via Zoom
We will be exploring self-enquiry from a non-dualistic perspective. Working with the body helps to free us from what we are not.
We will explore together what it means to know the Self.
The day will be a mixture of guided meditation, body awareness, working with the breath and techniques of pranayama, and exploring movement and yoga postures.
Through relaxing and listening to the body we come to the feeling of the real body, one of spaciousness.
In our yoga practise we keep this feeling alive from moment to moment.
In this experience of openness, a feeling without boundaries, we have a feeling of our real nature.
We explore the breath, allowing the space between each breath, feel it in different parts of the body and use the techniques of pranayama to stimulate the energy in the body.
Meditation is not a cerebral activity or concentration. It is there when we are innocent of all intention, it is when we are not there. Ultimately, we come to understand there is no meditator and nothing to meditate on.
We are meditation.

He was drawn to the non-dualistic teaching of the East in his 20’s and in the 1980’s met Jean Klein, a master of Advaita and Yoga, in London. The meeting had a deep impact and he subsequently spent many years attending Jean Klein’s retreats and dialogues in UK and abroad.
Billy runs retreats in UK, and teaches yoga as well as non-duality discourses online.
He is author of “Yoga in the Kashmir Tradition: the art of listening”, which follows the teachings of Jean Klein and also two poetic books written from a non-duality perspective: “The Mirage of Separation” and “Ocean of Silence”.
