with Swami GyanDharma Saraswati
Saturday 22nd April 2017, 9.30am – 4.30pm, at Quaker Friends Meeting House, Northfield
Swami Gyan Dharma has been travelling, practising and teaching yoga for almost 40 years. He teaches extensively at Mandala Yoga Ashram in Wales. He trained in India, his life and actions are rooted in a meditative connection with his inner being. The depth of his wisdom is conveyed through his teachings. Just being in his presence is uplifting.
Awareness is a revelatory quality: it enables us to befriend our own minds, so we can look at who we are with full attention and compassion. Fear and negativity can often overwhelm us but Awareness allows us to see other possibilities, to consciously choose motivations, actions and relationships that beautify our life. Awareness is a soothing balm to the over-active mind, but it also acts like a knife that cuts through illusion and self-limiting concepts. It helps us to heal and wake up.
The practices adeptly conveyed through Swami GyanDharma’s insight and compassionate heart, will promote deeper self-exploration, touch the inner springs of joy through chanting, and develop a sharper quality of attention in action – the hallmarks of the transformative power of Awareness.
