It offers a scientific approach to the spiritual life, with techniques for stilling the mind and expanding our awareness of spiritual realities.

It offers techniques for self-mastery in every aspect of life, from calming turbulent emotions to awakening deep compassion and love for others. Ultimately, it is a proven pathway, walked by countless yogis, mystics, saints, and sages for millennia.
