Yoga is a logically consistent and highly potent healing modality for our time with universal applicability. Its sweep of the globe over the last two decades, primarily in the form of asana, has only begun to scratch the surface of the benefits it can offer.
Yoga invites us to go deep within, past any falsities, fear and confusion and to take courageous action towards resting upon our True Nature, unfolding the nurturing force within, embracing love, and creatively solving whatever challenges lie before us.
Over the coming weeks, I will bring my knowledge of Western psychology and consciousness studies to facilitate a communal dialogue on Yoga psychology and the ways in which we can apply it during this time of immense change.
Each session we will begin with meditation, read portions of Yogic and Upanishadic texts, explore the major points of the underlying theory and vision, and discuss this enduring psychology’s applicability to our current world. We will close our gathering with song.
These gatherings are geared to anyone with a small to moderate amount of experience with Patañjali’s Classical Yoga (1 – 7 years) or serious beginners.
Here are a few of the topics we will dive into:
☼ How do we discern between truth, falsities and imagination and why is that discernment pivotal right now?
☼ How do we transform the perception of difference/dissonance into the perception of harmony? In other words, if there is synchrony and coherence in our heart/brain and in the collective bodymind, as Patañjali suggests, how does tapping into that synchrony and coherence apply to both transcendence of any inhibitory limitations and the immanence of our shared evolution?
☼ How can we engage our inner and outer world in new and more effective ways?
☼ What choices can we make, what perceptions can be had, that allow us to wake up the nurturing force within—so we come together as one heart and transmute the old stories of duality and separation for good?
☼ Techniques to master our emotions, in order to move through the coming days with clarity and equanimity.
Pdfs of the Yoga Sūtras, Katha Upaniṣad and Bhagavad Gita will be provided.
