The Ancients explored the mysteries of Reality: especially the nature of the Divine, of human consciousness, of the material world, and the complex interrelationships between these three aspects of Reality.
They understood our true nature to be Consciousness living in a multidimensional relationship with our mind, our body, our society, the physical world around us, the greater Cosmic Universe we find ourselves in, and the greater Mystery of Life itself.
They transmitted teachings and practices on how to refine these relationships, eliminate sources of suffering, and realize and actualize our highest potential.
In this intensive workshop, we will begin to explore the breadth of these teachings and practices, and how to integrate them into our own personal practice as well as into our teaching. In the weekend workshop that follows, we will dive even deeper so that the participants will have a direct experience of the truly integrated science of Yoga.
This three-hour workshop includes presentation and integrated practice.
The workshop will be recorded and replay access offered to all students until 29 July.
You will receive a Yogacampus e-certificate of attendance which details 3 CPD hours. The course is also eligible for Yoga Alliance Continuing Education credits.
