Event description

Description

Facilitated by Chris McLaren.

In this 8-week class we will begin to explore the ancient wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras and
how they apply to modern life. The 196 Yoga Sutras or aphorisms relate to both the theory and practice of yoga. The Yoga Sutras were compiled prior to 400 CE by Sage Patanjali. Modern yoga practitioners envision yoga as a series of asanas or postures, that when combined, help to improve our overall well-being. This is true, yet is not what the sutras are about. Patanjali only mentions one asana, which we will discuss. What Patanjali gives us is guidance about how to live a more spiritual life. He lays out a framework for what we can do as practitioners and the experiences we may encounter along this path.

Drawing upon the innate wisdom of our group, we will investigate the Sutras looking at both the
original translation and Kriyananda’s interpretation and the wisdom gleaned from his guru,
Yogananda. This class will be experiential as we discuss selected sutras and explore their relevance in our
modern lives. Through group discussion, we will share how we might use these tools along our own
spiritual journey and as a collective of human beings. Each class will feature a guided meditation to
help bring forth our innate, intuitive wisdom. The intention is that each of us will find meaningful ways
to begin or deepen our personal spiritual practice(s); gain clarity about mental and physical
experiences one may encounter along the path; and, perhaps, find a way of moving through this
life in a more gentle and loving manner.
