Light on Yoga Philosophy with Kim Schwartz & Zoreh Afsarzadeh
Time & Location
About The Event
Join Kim, Zoreh, and the HDY Teacher Training for 2 hour lecture-discussions on the vast and ancient subject of Yoga Philosophy.
Yoga is an art, relying on a profound depth of perception and intuition, and also a science, employing a methodology not based on belief. The word yoga has its root in the Sanskrit word "yuj," meaning to yoke or join together, also to integrate and unite. While most of humanity identifies with a reality defined by time and space, the premise in yoga is that this state of integration, a reality transcendent of time and space, is our true nature.
