The 'Subtle Body' in the Indo-Tibetan and Chinese traditions
13 May 2014
Register free at Eventbrite: http://cob-15may.eventbrite.co.uk
Part of Goldsmiths' Centre of the Body's 'Events Summer 2014', supported by the Wellcome Trust
Based on their respective work and experience in the Indo-Tibetan and Chinese contexts, the two speakers will deal with questions like: What is meant by the 'subtle body'? How is it understood in the Indo-Tibetan and Chinese traditions? Why were practices engaging the subtle body important in India, Tibet and East Asia in the past, and why are they still practised today? How can we understand the subtle bodies of the past within contemporary science?
