Applying the Spiritual Principles of Yoga in the Current Global Crisis
In this series of sixty minute on-line sharing through Zoom, we will come together in community to consider how to apply the yamas and niyamas – the simple, and also very deep and complex tenets that come out of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras – how can be directly applied to this moment we are in together. We will use these as the foundational context for a conversation on the application of these principles in a real, grounded and tangible way. While these particular ten tenets come out of the Yoga knowledge stream, they are relevant and practical for anyone of any faith or spiritual orientation.
I’ll ask folks to go deep and practical – thinking about these tenets in a way that encourages breadth, depth and creativity, that is radically inclusive of all faith backgrounds and life experiences, and more than anything, committing to using these practices as actions we are actually ready to apply to real life, every day situations.
