Investigate the fundamental questions in life and the fate of the human soul
Understand the ultimate goal of spiritual life
Gain real motivation for a deep and sustained practice
What is spirituality and why do we do spiritual practice? Many students who start on the Yogic path may not have a clear idea of the ultimate goal of practice. This workshop addresses the big picture and the biggest questions in life, giving a clear understanding of why we are here and why we practice.
Metaphysics is the forgotten element of spiritual life. It represents the vertical dimension of spirituality, addressing the fate of the human soul. In today's New Age environment, a fascination with occult science, magic, and shamanism leads people horizontally through life without a genuine spiritual basis. Metaphysics leads us to a practice that defines our position in the universe - why we are here. It is the main motivator in spiritual practice, without which there is no drive.
The metaphysics workshop is a spiritual eye-opener that is meant to cultivate aspiration, highlight the existential condition, and give a meaning to and ground for true spiritual practice. It can change your life, opening a new door with the right motivation and understanding for spiritual practice.
In this experimental, experiential introduction to spiritual practices, the theory will be complemented with practical examples and illustrations, such as music meditation, void meditation from Tibetan Buddhist Yoga, asanas (Yoga postures), wisdom from Gnostic Christianity, teachings from Tantra Yoga, readings from Paramahansa Yogananda, and Swami Vivekananda's own materials.
Topics covered include:
Excerpts from traditional texts
Fundamental existential questions
