“The mind is like a crystal,” write the leaders. “When we put a crystal next to a blue velvet cloth, it reflects a blue color. When we put it next to red velvet, it reflects red. Likewise when we place the mind in an environment that is of a lower nature, it can often be pulled down to that level. And when we focus it on spiritual practice, it lifts us beyond the ordinary to experience our true nature. What you focus on, you energize!
“The beauty of the classic method of Raja yoga is that it addresses both the physical and the mind, and gives equal importance to each. This experiential workshop offers you a range of creative and time-tested practices to strengthen the body, enliven the nervous system, and calm the mind. Practices include pranayama, guided meditation, and asana sessions; practices to heal the nervous system, purify the mind and open the heart; explorations of outer and inner sound as pathways to mindfulness; and a day of blissful silence
“Join us in a dynamic and interactive program designed to help you break through limiting thought patterns and belief systems. This work can be a catalyst for your personal and spiritual transformation.” Please bring a yoga mat.
