All that has been described about the culmination of spiritual practice can be found in the yoga tradition’s teachings and practices on the heart. In short, the ancient wisdom revels in the heart as the abode of both Self and Creator––the very place where the two become one. As the singular source of incomparable joy and wholeness, the heart is the fountainhead of healing as well as inner guidance and the source by which self-mastery is unlocked.
In times of so much confusion, grief, sadness, uncertainty and anger, the heart is the abode you must enter if you are to rise above the fray, live with the greatest freedom and enjoy the “highest fortune.” Indeed, the heart lights the path to healing, innate wisdom and worldly success; it will forever remain the final destination for the spiritual seeker. However, its full scope and all that it offers is revealed in stages, veils that are removed in the process of more and more self-discover.
Join Yogarupa Rod Stryker for this most illuminating and important event, a time to settle into your heart of hearts and, drawing from its great wisdom, shine its curative light into the world and thereby establish yourself on the path of unalloyed freedom from all grief and sorrow. This is the path to lasting happiness, meaning and purpose.
