October 21: ITP Theory and Kata elements of relaxation and transformational imaging

Preparation for Session 5

  • Please read Chapters 6 and 7 in The Life We Are Given, with special emphasis on section 25 in Chapter 6 “Deep Relaxation.”
  • Listen, or listen again, to this recording developing our abilities to activate and experience our affirmations in our inner worlds: Transformational Imaging presentation
  • Download and print this template called Animating Your Affirmations.  Fill out the template for at least one of your affirmations  listing all of your affirmation's senses of Touch, Taste, Smell, Sound, Sight, including the Emotions of the affirmation (how it makes you feel) and a Memory of some point in time when you experienced those emotions. 

    To do this, find a quiet space and journey inside, listen deeply to your body and all of it's senses, and let them tell you how they feel when your affirmation is fully realized.  Not all elements may be relevant for an affirmation, choose the ones most relevant and write out a description of what you will be, or are, activating in your Transformational Imaging practice. Please contact Roger if you have questions about this process.

  • Read the following two online articles further distinguishing the power and benefits of deep relaxation and the “relaxation response” as discovered by Dr. Herbert Benson:
