IST or the Inner Space Techniques of meditation are a profound and gentle method of self-exploration. It is a therapeutic process for helping resolve emotional and energetic blockages. Clearing these blockages creates an opening for clarity, undiscovered joy, and a deeper understanding of yourself and your true potential.
The inner space of meditation allows you to get out of your busy mind and repetitive thoughts into deeper states of consciousness and intuitive knowing. This allows you to see and experience how present emotional blockages and conditioned behavior or negative patterns began.
Through this process, emotional releases and openings can deepen with each session, allowing a simple yet profound knowing of your true nature. The layer of life force becomes more accessible and can bring a sense of rejuvenation, rest, and deep ease.
Experiences of early childhood and even past lives are not uncommon; however, the essence and purpose of IST remains firmly in the present. You do not need to believe in past lives to do the process, as the focus is on how you can bring improvement to your life now.
IST allows you to get to the source of an issue where you can see, feel, and release the root causes of emotional patterns, attitudes, and beliefs. Profound realizations come from seeing for yourself what lies behind your habitual attitudes and emotional patterns.
You will feel more present in the moment, rather than reacting to things happening to you and around you. You will connect to your true essence as a guiding principle in your life.
The technique was developed by Dr. Samuel Sagan, a French-born physician and psychiatrist who founded the Clairvision School. During his medical training, Dr. Sagan wrote a Doctorate of Medicine on chakras and subtle bodies in the Hindu tradition. Although his doctorate explored ideas very different from the traditional medical model, the medical Faculty awarded him the Faculty prize winner, a silver medal and he was inducted into the French Society of History of Medicine.
