Take a fresh look at how your mind works and how you can free yourself from limiting thoughts and habits. Open up perspective; free yourself from past repetitive behaviors. Turn apparent difficulty into advantage. Understand your emotions. Experience more peace. This program is in two parts and covers:
• Yoga philosophy regarding mind and thought
• Discussion of the impact of thought on our life
• Demonstration and practice of Techniques to uplift our thought patterns
Day 1 Agenda:
Mind: Best Friend or Worst Enemy?
The practice of Yoga can help us to establish a good relationship with an often unruly and restless life partner - our own mind. We will investigate how we can establish a different perspective to our mind, to thought, and to thinking.
What is Positive? What is Negative?
Through the practice of Yoga we can make the discovery that we have choice in our thought process; we do not have to be a victim of our own thinking. Yoga then provides a clear paradigm to determine the type of thought that is to be cultivated, and that which is to be transformed.
Day 2 Agenda:
Classical Yoga Tools for Positivity
After establishing the power of our thoughts and the effect of both negative and positive thought patterns we will explore the Tool Box; Fifteen Tools available to us to let us shift our inner world and thus our entire world experience.
We will summarize the workshop with the Classical Yoga practices and how they work together to support our upliftment and close the workshop by diving into the program plan with a step by step approach to transformation of thought.
Swami Sankarananda is a simple pilgrim. Not finding peace in a life of business success, he turned inside, became a disciple of Swami Sivananda, and in 2013 he began to walk across and through the USA in a pilgrimage for peace, completing this in early 2016. He now travels from town to town in the "Yoga for Peace" RV. He strives to serve the divine in all and support our universal journey to find the happiness and peace for which we search. This service includes living a peaceful life, offering kindness and inspiration, and sharing the ancient and universal teachings of Yoga as well as the path of pilgrimage through talks, workshops and practices.
