What makes up a yogic lifestyle? Come find out, in the high Himalayas (just 40 km from glaciers) in the Kumaon area of Uttarakhand.
If I could offer my best contribution to the evolution of our society, it would be the techniques I’ve practiced to help me reach contentment while maintaining a deeper level of mindfulness as I work my way towards citta vṛti nirodhaḥ; insights into what has evolved me the most over the past 8 years living in India, what has contributed toward Impression Detox: the shedding of my cultural conditioning, the letting go of decades of emotional luggage, the digestion and elimination of many impressions in my mind, the cleansing of (some of) my karmas, as well as (at times) the opening of my cakras.
As a guide along the path of sādhana, I am looking forward to facilitating activities that help others begin to excavate old emotions and unravel the untrue stories they may have repeatedly told themselves, let go of false beliefs that have held them back in life, and make way for the light of one’s true self to illuminate their inner guidance system (our inner guru), ie. our intuition; by helping others:
Learn techniques that will enable one to awaken their intuition, become an empty vessel for downloading knowledge from source, and begin to live a life of automatic delivery from the abundant universe.
Take control of our mind’s remote: learn techniques to calm the mind, lesson the chatter or repeated songs stuck in your head, so that reaching an empty state of meditation becomes a possibility.
Learn techniques to help one cultivate a higher level of mindfulness of thought, speech and action, throughout their everyday.
Explore the inner workings and various compartmentalized functions of what we call “mind” and become able to distinguish the difference between thinking, concentration and actual meditation.
Understand and develop a heightened sensitivity for the affects the breath and mind (thought patterns) have on each other and how to control them both.
Understand why it is we have been told throughout our childhood to sit still and learn ways to actually cultivate that ability.
Design a daily routine that helps one maintain a yogic – stress free – lifestyle of contentment, despite their busy career and household duties.
Gain a broader understanding of the ultimate goal of yoga and what it means to spiritualize your life, beyond the mat and yoga studio.
“As a wanderer… Our names have been changed so many times we begin to cling to our original crumbling identity even more, our ears now buzzing with mantras lost in translation.”
“It is by swimming to the depth of our own ocean that we find inner calmness. Those who struggle among the waves to stay afloat at the surface only perpetuate their struggle by being the very cause of their ocean’s turbulence.”
