"Obeying the ego leads to bondage; obeying the soul leads to liberation."-Paramhansa Yogananda
Yoga teaches that our soul transcends our physical body's aging, shifting personalities, and even thoughts. Yet, in the midst of the noisy haze of outer activities- and for many of us the holidays is when being a "human doing" rather than "human being" is at it's height- it's all too easy for our inner Self to not get much air time! This is a shame because yogis have known since time immemorial that every moment is potentially a transformative, and, dare I say sacred, way to connect with eternal freedom, within
our ourselves. At a time when our advertising culture says we need to pile on more outside stuff to be happy- feeling with stillness at the center of our being that we already are "everything" is very "good news" indeed!
Yogic teachings are nothing if not practical and they offer the supreme technique to experience this: meditation
. Yet, from my own experience, I have found many, including myself, need some kind of support to get grounded in a regular practice- and that where our lovely, calming group of like-minded "souls" comes in.
So, if you want to feel more calm simplicity within, free of outside "life storms," you can come to meditate with us- during and/or after the holiday season!
