The ICM is a simple map of the movement of two basic energy-systems within our nervous system: the conditioned (human, time-bound) and unconditioned (Soul, timeless). With willing spaciousness, the mobile-like movement of these inner-aspects becomes increasingly transparent to us – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

Silence Practice groups have increasingly focused on refining our capacity for inner-awareness through deep listening and attunement. As this function stabilizes in the group dynamic, subtle energy-movements in our nervous system become palpable and increasingly conscious. The Inner Constellation Mobile (ICM) emerged in the most recent Silence Practice series as a map of the sacred territory of our inner life.

Silence Practice was originally founded upon a Master’s Research thesis Surrendering to Silence: A Heart-Centred Practice from the Vancouver School of Theology in 2011. The next iteration of Silence Practice has developed into a Research PhD program. The PhD proposal Discovering and Integrating the Soul’s Nervous System through Inner Constellations and Sound has been accepted by Thomas Hubl’s AIS (Academy of Inner Science) in conjunction with Ubiquity University’s Wisdom School.
