This class is part lecture and part guided explorations. You will discover the ways to grow inner resilience and clarity through timeless tools such as mantra, breath techniques, and holistic awareness. You will also gather an understanding of the ancient rationale behind these practices to ease universal human tendencies of desire, anger, delusion, and fear.
The basis for this understanding will be grounded in wisdom from texts such as Samkhya, Yoga Sutra, and Bhagavad Gita, but also from life experiences and stories. Overall, you will learn how to observe patterns in your own body and breath and have a set of practical tools for self-care. (Note: this course is not a substitute for medical advice and care.)
