“All yoga practices are designed to lead one to an experience of being infinite, eternal, and whole. An experience of being infinite, eternal and whole is beyond a mental belief that you are infinite eternal and whole. The mind’s concepts and beliefs cannot get there, so at some point you must leap from mental experience into another realm.”
-- “The Essence of the Bhagavad Gita”
This is the meditation workshop you’ve been longing for, as well as the awareness training you wish you had received at the beginning of your life journey. In a supportive, bliss-seeking setting, you will learn and practice the fundamentals of meditation as set forth in the ancient yogic texts.
Consider the value of spending one week of your life exploring the hidden dimensions of your natural intelligence through meditation. One week with yourself can give you a relationship of peace and inner stillness that will last a lifetime.
In the pristine garden jungle of the Nosara Yoga Institute discover the power of nature as your teacher, and experience a heightened sense of awareness that endures all of life’s circumstances and physical locations.
What are the benefits of “training your awareness?”
The basic practice of developing your awareness is at the heart of everything we are seeking. Attention is the starting line. By training yourself to take charge of your attention, you will find that it is not as hard as you may have made it, as boring as you may have imagined, or as complicated as you may have been told. It is natural. Awareness waits for us to rest in it.
Through individual practice, reflection, and partnering activities, you will uncover a pathway towards your own inner teacher. By exploring a range of practices from stillness to mindful movement, mantras, mudras, silence, exploring nature, breathing and other yogic practices, you will find the keys that work for you, enabling you to pass through the doorway of Atha (now).
