Mortification of the Flesh is an Aes Sedai penance where the penitant is physically harmed such as by birching, whipping, or other corporal punishment.


Throughout the series, there have been references to several Aes Sedai who have been taken out to the square in front of Tar Valon to be birched in public. If the crime is severe enough, stilling will follow.
