Rudra Yoga Study

Duration: 90 minutes / Price: $15

Take a moment out of the week to try on a new perspective based on the ancient wisdom of the great spiritual traditions. We begin with a short practice to settle our mind from the activities of the day, and then dive into the study, taking turns reading from our own books. We stop frequently to reflect on what we have read and how it is relevant to our lives now. We share in hearty discussions, insights and confirmations from our own experiences.  The study follows and supports the tradition taken up in the current Rudra Yoga Course.  We are now working with Red Hawk's book, Self-Remembering, which speaks primarily from the Sufi 4th Way tradition and sites various references from many other traditions and teachers followed in Rudra Yoga.

How to Know God


Translation and commentary by Swami Prabhavananda & Christopher Isherwood


Presented here are the yoga aphorisms or sutras of Patanjali. Somewhere between the 4th century BC and 4th century AD, Patanjali distilled the instruction in yoga to attain the state of UNION in a format which could be memorized and recited.  There are many commentaries on Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, and we will reference others as we study this teaching.

Zen Mind Beginner's Mind
