September 27th – 29th
Have you been practising yoga for many years but feel that little progress has been made? Or, are you relatively new to yoga and feel confused about its complexity and its dense overlay of Indian culture with animal deities and Sanskrit chants? Do you believe that success in yoga can only be achieved through many lifetimes of purification, austerity, meditation and virtuous behavior? How can the task be so tedious, so complicated and lengthy when all we seek is the simple reality of who we truly are?
In this retreat we will investigate deep-seated beliefs about who we are and what yoga is. Babaji taught that “all paths lead to jñāna yoga,” so regardless of the path you are currently following and regardless of the traditions you have studied, you will find success in your spiritual endeavours only when you have the direct experience of your true self, the self of all. Jñāna yoga, the path of knowledge, sometimes called the direct path, sheds light on the dark areas of our misunderstandings and awakens us to the deeper reality of who we are.
This retreat will consist of five sessions of about two hours each where through discourse, interaction and simple exercises, we will learn to set aside the obstacles that obstruct our direct experience of ourself.
There will also be two morning sessions of restorative yoga asanas to enhance relaxation, reduce chronic tension and help create an environment conducive to deeper insight into our true nature.
