The Splendour of Recognition Workshops
30 August – 1st September
A deeper inquiry into the teachings given in Pratyabhijna Hrydiam/Splendor of Recognition will frame and support the heart qualities we bring into this movement filled workshop.
In this workshop Neesha will introduce you to the ancient tantric text of the Pratyabhijna hrydiam. Pratyabhijna literally means to recognise the heart of yourself. Prati – ” Something once known”, Abhi – ” Immediate” and Jñā– ” To know”.
This beautiful text gives you helpful practices to guide you on your spiritual journey. Neesha will lead you on a study of the nature of awareness, and teach you practices to support your recognition of it. Through a combination of lecture/discussion, yoga asana in the Anusara Yoga style, contemplation, journaling and meditation you will have a joyful exploration into the nature of youself.
