Hṛdaya: journey to the heart of ancient wisdom with Eliot
IS A SANSKRIT WORD
IT MEANS HEART
IT MEANS TRUE AND DIVINE
IT MEANS MIND, SCIENCE AND THE CENTRE OF EVERYTHING…
IT MEANS GOING TO THE HEART
HEART, CENTRE, ESSENCE, CORE, BEST, DEAREST, MOST SECRET PART OF ANYTHING
With this series of workshops,
Eliot guides students into the study of the most revered texts
in human history and famous within the yoga tradition.
Once a month on Sunday afternoons
journey to the heart of ancient wisdom
A lot more than we can ever imagine is written about the mystery of Reality that we so often wonder about. If we can pierce just a bit into the wisdom that has been so compassionately left to us by ancient wise masters, we will support and accelerate the beautiful process of deeper knowing that our āsana and meditation practice bring about.
A wholesome yoga practice includes svādhyāya, self study in the form of reading, reciting and contemplating sacred scripture. Eliot will guide participants in the
recitation of the Sanskrit verses, give ample translations from various sources, offer masterful commentary provided by great teachers alongside her very own contemplations and insight.
There will be key questions to guide a deeper inquiry as well as the encouragement of stimulating conversations amongst the participants so we all learn from each others’ rich variety of perspectives.
To participate in this beautiful circle of wisdom study it is recommended and greatly encouraged to have a regular meditation practice. If you do not meditate regularly ask
Eliot to see how you can bring meditation into your life.
