A deeply satisfying spiritual practice rests on the cornerstones of self-effort, self-study, and trustful surrender. All three appear in several yogic texts as essential ingredients to cultivate a balanced approach to yoga practice while staying actively engaged in our worldly duties. Explore these three pillars of practice in your own life and understand why the Yoga Sutra describes them as a framework for a complete practice.
In this retreat devoted to personal practice and contemplation, we’ll find the right balance of asana, pranayama, and relaxation to invigorate and support body, mind, and soul; draw inspiration and insight from meditation practice and selected readings from yogic texts; and cultivate trust and connection with the guiding force within through discussion and self-study.
Topics of this Year Long Meditation Retreat include:
- Asana and pranayama practices to cultivate physical vitality and mental clarity to transform self-limiting actions and thought patterns that keep us from personal growth and experiencing the best of ourselves
- Selected readings from the Yoga Sutra, Bhagavad Gita and other yogic texts that provide practical tips and inspiration to enhance the quality of our yoga and meditation practice
- Discussion and reflections on how to transform our vocation, duties, and relationships as offerings to the Divine within us and others
