This six week course is a beginners guide to understanding the philosophy of Yoga from one its principle sources, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. Notoriously a challenging book to read, we will take the simplest path into the heart of the practice by beginning with Sutra 1.33, the teachings of loving kindness (maitrī), compassion (karuṇā), joy (muditā) and equanimity (upekṣā), traditionally called “the four immeasurables” and the “sublime attitudes.” This key aspect of Yoga philosophy is often missing in many contemporary Yoga teachings. It was shared by other spiritual traditions of ancient India, most importantly Buddhism, and so we will also be studying selections from The Way of the Bodhisattva by the 8th century Indian Buddhist teacher Shantideva, most notably his teachings on dealing with anger and cultivating patience, fearlessness, mindfulness, and compassion. Returning to the Sutras we’ll then explore the psychology of Yoga (Sutras II.1 - 26), including the concepts of duḥkha, karma, samskara, klesha, etc. We'll then be ready to dive deeply into the vital meaning of eight-limbed (ashta-anga) Yoga as a lived practice both on and off the mat (Sutras II.28 - III.11).
This course is designed for anyone with more than a casual interest in Yoga. It does not require any previous experience with Yoga philosophy. All reading materials will be provided including Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, selections from Shantideva's The Way of the Bodhisattva and selections from psychologist Carl Jung’s writings about Westerners practicing Eastern disciplines
This is not an academic course, expect thoughtful consideration, lively discussion, and wild excursions into the meaning of Yoga in every domain of life.

Do you need guidance in making KEY DECISIONS, insight into the nature of your RELATIONSHIPS, help navigating CHALLENGING TIMES? If so, then learning to work with your Akashic Records could provide you with just the help you need. For almost a decade, I have used this work with myself and clients to navigate major life changes, career guidance, and profound understanding and healing in relationships, and now you can learn how to access and use this soul-level information for yourself.
Akasha is the Sanskrit word for ether, and the Akashic Records are an impression of your soul’s journey. Just as we leave footprints on the sand while walking, all of our actions, thoughts, words, intentions, and interactions leave an energetic impression and record of our path. Through learning to access and read your Akashic Records (the energetic imprint of your soul's journey), you are able to gain insight into the patterns in your life in order to bring about healing, clarity, and beneficial changes in taking the next steps in your journey in a way that is increasingly aligned with that which is of the highest good for yourself and everyone. You will also be able to access more deeply your natural intuition and creative capacity.
There are many ways one can access and explore the Akashic Records. During this class, you will learn how to access your Akashic Records by using a prayer that is keyed using the vibration of your name. We will then explore your records in various ways so that you gain confidence in knowing when you are in your Records and are able to feel the truth of the insight that comes forth. Topics that we may explore in the class for both insight and healing include but are not limited to: patterns or habits which are “sticky” for you, the nature and purpose of key relationships in your life, clarity around decisions you need to make or directions you need to take now, and “past lives” affecting this one.
