Event Description: 

The mind has a similar structure as the Universe and understanding it as multi-layered with a clear understanding of each level helps us find the keys to the inner more conscious layer. Please join for a full 20 hour weekend as we explore the architecture of the mind and the gunas; and scientific use of asana, pranayama, and meditation. We will also explore:

  • Subtle essences: prana, tejas (fire of intelligence), and ojas and how we can build up our reserves of the vital essences with out creating imbalances and aggravation
  • Circulation of prana via the vayus; practices for seasonal changes and vata imbalance

We will cultivate a deeper understanding of the vital essences at work in supporting overall and sustainable mental health.
