In this course we will take inspiration from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and other ancient texts. We’ll explore a time-honored mapping of reality where there is a seamless connection between our outer and inner landscape. This map includes the five elements and their relationship to our senses and sensory experiences. Through exploring this mapping, we’ll gain insight into the relevance of spiritual values and behaviors (such as non-harming, reverence, non-greed, and kindness) to supporting our personal and collective well-being. Our study will be supported with lecture, discussion, experiential practice, imagery, and tips for daily habits.
