Radical Self Nourishment (RSN) is a holistic body of work created by Deborah Brodey for healers, and changemakers, to care for themselves while they change the world. The heart of the RSN process results from the alchemy of living five universal attitudes called the Niyamas in Sanskrit as outlined in Patanjali’s Yoga sutras, an ancient yogic text.
What are the Five Niyamas?
The Niyamas are an important teaching in yoga philosophy. They refer to five attitudes or habits for healthy holistic living to cultivate right relationship and alignment with our Self. These attitudes/habits work together in an interrelated dynamic way creating a recipe for powerful transformation. These 5 Niyamas are the foundation of the body of work I call Radical Self Nourishment.
- Practice / discipline
As we work with each Niyama, the following tools may be used as is appropriate to each context: yoga teachings and practices (postures, breathing, meditation, yoga nidra, ceremony, vedic chanting, yogic philosphy); vocal sounding; internal voice work; inner child work; earth wisdom; and sacred circle work, community & collective voice work. When these attitudes are embodied and integrated they create a powerful container to do the deep transformational work that results in a righting of our relationship to ourselves and ripples out to our relationships in community, the wider world and to the Earth, Nature and beyond.
