Gregor Maehle - Weekend Workshop
We are delighted to welcome again Gregor Maehle, author of four renowned books on Yoga.
In this workshop you will experience how yogic meditation seamlessly develops out of the same methods and techniques that you are already using for yogic posture (asana) and yogic breathing (pranayama). You will learn how to use techniques such as Ujjayi, bandhas, mudras and mantra to build up and form yogic meditation.
You will also learn how to activate the chakras through sound and visualization and how to harness to creative force of Kundalini for spiritual break-through experiences. Gregor will also introduce to the yogic methods of harnessing the power of the subconscious mind, which will strongly increase your ability to meditate. He will also not only explain how to do the methods but the reasoning behind them according to yogic philosophy such as the Yoga Sutra and other texts.
This workshop will step-by-step expose the methods to practice the yogic limbs of pratyahara (independence from external stimuli), dharana (concentration) and dhyana (meditation proper) and how you can integrate them into your daily practice. It is these practices that enable you to harvest the seeds that you have sown through yogic postures and breathing.
