Yoga and Ignatian Spirituality – exploring the overlap of Patanjali and Ignatius in our movement toward peace. Four Friday mornings online, 9 – 11 Pacific, 11 – 1 Central, 12 – 2 Eastern, June 4, 11, 18, 25
As I continue in my studies of Christian mysticism and my Master’s in Theology, and I am constantly struck by the overlap of practices, theological frameworks, and perspectives on the mind, and the pursuit of peace and freedom through faith. I think many of us might think there is no relationship between Christianity and Yoga, and yet, the more I study, the more I find that the responses to our deepest human questionings are often the same, couched in different language and different practices. The Rules of Discernment, written in the early 1500’s, are completely consistent with Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra.
In this four week series, we will learn about the rules of discernment, and how they can add a depth and clarity to our thinking, to our faith practices and ultimately to our experience of peace, resting in “our own true nature.” This is an exciting, interactive and inspiring series. All are welcome, of any or no faith, and all will benefit, especially those interested in the intersection of various faith traditions and in creating a greater capacity for understanding multi-faith perspectives.
$180 for all four sessions, $150 if registered by June 1. Please inquire for sliding scale, scholarship, or BIPOC rates. Click here to register.
