COMPREHENDING ONENESS

A 12 Hour Advanced Yoga Philosophy Weekend

 

HOW EXACTLY ARE WE ALL ONE?

It’s a common phrase in yoga, but one that needs work and some interactive philosophy to fully comprehend.

In yogic thought, there’s actually differing understandings of what oneness means. Do we mean that deep down we’re all united?

Or perhaps everything we experience is simply one vibration? 

In this weekend, get to grips with Classical Tantrik philosophy - a cosmology of empowerment, embodiment and oneness

(and historically not much about sex!)

Learn powerful meditation techniques, playfully presented theory, key texts and how a worldview of oneness may fit your yoga practice better than the Yoga Sutras.

 
 

SUBJECTS

TANTRIK MEDITATION TECHNIQUES

How can we experience Oneness? 

Learn how to entrain various Classical Tantrik elements into your mediation classes.

We’ll practice Tantrik meditation with examples from the Vijñānabhairava Tantra.

VIBRATIONS OF ŚAKTI

We talk physics, synthesisers and music videos as we get to grips with the concept of Śakti or the vibration that manifests our existence. How does manifestation work, and how much control do we have over it?

THE TATTVA SYSTEM

Sāṅkhya philosophers divided existence into 25 categories, then Tantrikas added 11 more and entirely flipped the script on what it means to be living. 
We work through this complex system with a fun interactive game to see how you fit into all these categories. Most students say this is the first time they’ve actually understood this advanced piece of philosophy!

ASPECTS OF THE MIND

Get to know the three characters inside your head - manas, ahaṃkāra and buddhi.
See how they process information from the world, and cause us an awful lot of problems.

CHAKRAS REDEFINED

There’s more than 7 chakras! 
Learn how classically you would install a chakra system of 5,9,12,21 or more.
Includes an interactive exploration of emotional and spiritual energy points in the body as a way to map our chakral points.

ESCAPING SAMSĀRA

How do we get out of suffering if everything is one? The Yoga Sutras suggest transcending it completely, The Bhagavad Gītā suggests devoting all our actions to Krishna, but how about fully redefining our worldly problems? We look at the Tantrik approach to suffering - 
a significant shift in how we view the world.

THE NATURE OF ILLUSION

Take part in an interactive reenactment of a dancing Shiva statue and an explanation of its message: the Five Acts of Śiva. Then spend every visit to a yoga studio telling your friends what those 4-armed statues are about!

YOUR CONDITIONED MIND

Get to know about your hidden saṃskāras, the conditioned ways your mind responds, by competing for candy using your powers of intuition…

 

IT’S FOR EVERYONE

Although I’d recommend taking the Essential Yoga Philosophy training first, it’s not a requisite to join this advanced course!

For those unfamiliar with the history of yoga and the different schools of philosophy from the Essential course, (such as Advaita Vedānta, Tantra and Sāṅkhya), we’ll cover a short recap of the important knowledge needed for this course.

 

LIFELONG LEARNING

Includes a 40-page comprehensive illustrated manual on Tantrik philosophy

PRAISE

 

It has sparked so many thoughts and I love how playful and available you teach these super intense, mind-blowing thoughts

Felicia Zimmerman

I can’t think of a more essential course for yogis and soon-to-become yogis today

Katherine Perkins

I no longer feel like this is some huge academic lesson that feels like a daunting, gargantuan task, but in fact something to be lived and experienced and that is so beautiful

Emily Price

I really resonated with your way of teaching. Your light-hearted and interactive approach certainly made the concepts more simple to grasp!
