Atha Yoga Anushasanam: And now we come to the study of Yoga. Patanjali 1.1
Paramhansa Yogananda said that God made delusion charming, otherwise, who would be interested in it?
How are we deluded, and how do we escape the delusion?
Patanjali’s Ashtanga Yoga is valuable because his descriptions of what spiritual freedom looks like are so clear. Through his explanations, we understand how to change from within, in practical, real-life ways that land us in expanding joy.
In this ten-month discussion, we will work with one Yama or Niyama at a time, for one month each, meeting via Zoom once a week to share and discuss its application in our daily lives. Focusing on one at a time for an extended period allows for deeper experiential understanding of Truth, and encourages soul expansion.
Working with intangible vrittis of karma is the path of Self-realization. That intangibility is why discussion and community are so valuable. This ongoing series offers opportunity to share deep conversations with others on this path and receive sincere feedback about areas in our lives that challenge us most.
Imagine how different your life could be if through deeper understanding of the Yamas and Niyamas, you could neutralize all pain and suffering!
Weekly discussions will be held online via Zoom. If you can’t attend every week, that’s okay.
Based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda, we will deepen our awareness of each Yama and Niyama in daily life. The greater our self-study and our willingness to change, the more our consciousness expands. This series also offers opportunity to deepen spiritual friendships while discussing the challenges we all face in the path of Self-realization.
These discussions are open to anyone who has already completed The Art & Science of Raja Yoga.
Date/Time: Sundays, 9:00am-10:00am beginning Nov. 6. Exceptions for holidays etc., will be determined as we go.
