Seek the Self: A Quest for Inner Awareness

with Rev. Sumati Govinda Steinberg, RN, BSN, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT

January 18 - 20, 2019

What is consciousness? Who am I? These timeless questions lead us in search of answers that can only be found when we seek the Self within.

We are all the pure light of consciousness. We are that infinitely peaceful, unchanging existence. Join us to discover this truth for yourself.

There are many paths that lead us to this universal truth. Explore two of the traditional yogic paths, Jnana Yoga and Raja Yoga, during this experiential workshop. Jnana Yoga (non-dualism) is an internal path of wisdom through self-inquiry which leads to an awareness of that ever-present consciousness within. Raja Yoga is a path of dedication, discipline and devotion that uses willpower and specific yogic practices (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) to achieve the same goal.

Take the opportunity to seek the Self this weekend. Explore, study, and practice the great yogic paths that enable us to experience ourselves as peace and joy, love and light.
