Full Description

In this 4 week discussion series, we will be reading and dissecting an ancient Yogic text called The Crest Jewel of Discrimination or Viveka Chudamani. Adi Shakaracharya, a great Indian guru, left this important teaching in the 9th century which is of great value on our journey to self-realization. In our group discussions, we will be delving into the different bodies (koshas) that make up our form and how to change our identification with ourselves from our physical body to something much deeper. Uncovering how we define and identify ourselves will make way for a greater understanding of ourselves and how to live with less attachment and more freedom.

The teachings of yoga are profoundly relevant for our lives today. Although most of us begin yoga with poses, what many of us don’t know is that the physical practice of yoga is a relatively small part of the entire approach. This discussion series is a gateway which offers students tools to delve deeper into understanding themselves and their world by exploring the spiritual, social and psychological aspects of this 5,000 year tradition of wisdom. The result is an awakening to live more intentionally and effectively, an invitation to feel calm, confident, and clear in each moment.

“When the outward is checked, there is restfulness from emotion; when emotion is at rest, there is vision of the supreme Self. When the Self is seen, the bondage of the world is destroyed; the checking of the outward is the path of freedom.” Adi Shankacharya, Viveka Chudamani
