Yoga Psychology
with Swami Jyotirmayananda


Saturday September 24


The science of Raja Yoga explains the subtle functioning of the mind: its different levels, how habits are formed, how pain is generated and how one can free oneself from mental suffering. It teaches how to focus the mind and realize our true nature, which is beyond mental conditioning. It makes us aware of our true self, which is bliss and peace. It gives a wonderful message of hope and encouragement and inspires us to rise beyond habitual states of depression, excitement, fear and find the centre within where we are not shaken by the changes that challenge us in our lives.

 

The workshops and satsangs will be given by Swami Jyotirmayananda, director of the Sivananda Yoga Centre London. She is an inspired and experienced teacher.

Study of Indian Deities and Kirtan Chanting


Saturday October 8 at 2.00pm

 

The deities of the yogic tradition convey the deep essence of spirituality. In understanding the concept of a deity, it may be helpful to see him or her as an aspect of the one supreme essence, or energy, or consciousness. The grandeur of the Absolute is too vast for the mind to comprehend and the deity manifests it in a form that can be grasped. Each deity, complete within itself, represents an aspect of the whole.

Kirtan or devotional chanting elevates the mind, soothes the nerves and generates harmony. Sanskrit chants bring much joy and have a very positive effect on our physical and mental wellbeing.
