«Yoga Talk» is a regular series of talks designed to ground students in their knowledge of yoga psychology and philosophy.
Following a brief meditation, Dr. Whicher will discuss the concept of separate selfhood or ego-identity as an activity versus an entity. Through the teachings of the Yoga Sutra, he will examine the significance of this distinction, setting the stage in practice for opening into the immediacy of our ever-present abiding nature as consciousness.
Ian Whicher is a professor in the Department of Religion at the University of Manitoba. He is interested in the practical applications of yoga philosophy and psychology and in making this wisdom tradition available and accessible to a wider audience.
