Identification with the limited mind/body exclusively prohibits us from experiencing ourselves as the Eternal Unchanging Awareness, or Self, that we really are.
This Workshop will seek to lead us to experience the Unchanging Eternal Awareness that is always present in every moment of our daily lives, and to encourage us to make that Greater Awareness our permanent abiding place from which we experience our world.
In this workshop senior disciples of Si Swami Satchidananda will relate their experiences as they have practiced the Self-Inquiry of Jnana Yoga, and speak of some of the practices they found helpful. You will have the opportunity to explore these practices and receive guidance, as well as experiencing many other aspects of Yoga, including daily Hatha Yoga, breathing practices, deep relaxation, meditation and yogic diet, and connecting with the power and beauty of nature.
