New Himalayan Tradition Yoga Nidra course
In this highly unpredictable, unstable world, the place of peace within us all is predictable and never changes. This state of peace, Turya, the Ground of Being, the Source, whatever your preferred name for it, has always and will always exist; it’s not unique to any religion, philosophy, culture or yoga.
Since records began there have been, and still are, many wise teachers who point us towards the transcendence of duality as our essential nature – unchanging, eternal, pure love. This course aims to share the vision and teachings of some of these artists and sages – musicians, yoga masters, philosophers, painters, mystics and saints – as they point us to our true nature through their sublime work.
Homage to these exceptional visionaries, past and present; their legacy is immeasurable. Homage also to the Himalayan tradition of Yoga Nidra that takes us to that place of boundless awareness, where “you” and “I” disappear. This practice is possibly the most reliable method and route to bring you to the ground of being – like an accurate Satnav which guides you home without any unwanted detours. It always includes periods of silence in the stillness.
Mystics, saints, yogis, poets, artists of all kinds and traditions have for centuries reflected on their own inner journeys to this place of complete oneness. Regardless of era, culture, faith, education, or external conditions they describe how to access this place via silence and stillness.
Who is the course for?
Anyone who wishes to deepen their practice of Yoga Nidra, or to discover it for the first time. You don’t need to be a yoga teacher or therapist of any kind, just someone who wants to relax totally, to go beyond images, thoughts, memories and concepts to the place of boundless awareness, where “you” and “I” disappear.
The assignments are all about your practice and your responses to it; none of them are about teaching or theory. If you are a yoga teacher, your teaching will become richer and more authentic. In the words of Sri Ramana Maharshi:
“Your own Self-Realization is the greatest service you can render the world.”
