Energetic Continence (brahmacharya): the fourth of the restraints (Yamas).
It is advisable to listen to "The Yoga Sutras" episode before you listen to this one.
It could be tempting to only ever do things or socialise with people who give you energy (aka "fill your cup"), but life isn't that simple and we have responsibilities which require us to get involved in energy-zapping pursuits.
In this episode, Jo encourages us to be careful, aware and respectful of our energy and talks us through two interpretations of energetic continence; one being a theory that we all have a finite amount of energy to get us through life, and the other being based around celibacy, sexual conduct and consent.
