Unearthing Your Dharma
With Christy Fisher and Laura Yon

“Dharma” is often understood as an inner blueprint of your deepest authentic self, a path to your highest potential. Yet often dharma feels obscure and out of reach. How do you know if you are on “your right path”?

For thousands of years, yogic teachings have addressed this human dilemma and offered maps to deeper peace and clarity.

In this immersion we will incorporate yogic practices to:

  • Clear paths to our heart’s inner callings, through movement, stillness, sharing and personal quiet time/reflection.
  • Explore the ancient practice of “Samyama” to experience deep compassionate connection to one’s self, others, and nature.
  • Learn simple techniques to access inspiration from an infinite reserve.
  • Create gentle rituals to bring a sense of wonder and the sacred into every aspect of life.

Transformational Teachings of Yoga

Often considered to be the height of wisdom of Vedic philosophy, The Upanishads are a set of beautifully written accounts of what it is like to truly look inward and see the Divine. Its texts are among the most important in the history of Indian religions and culture and are still widely incorporated because they are so relevant to contemporary life.

Much of modern yoga has roots in the Upanishads including the model of the Koshas which provide the foundation for many of our other modules in this training.

Through discussion and practice, we will:

  • Delve into the rich historical context for this body of ancient wisdom
  • Explore 10 Upanishads which are often considered to be the most widely incorporated teachings.
  • Enrich your personal practice and your teaching by deepening understanding of these powerful transformational texts.

No prior experience with the Upanishads is necessary to attend this immersion.
