Title:The Power of Breath online - Live Online
Instructor:Swami Saradananda

In this workshop, Swami Saradananda, author of the bestseller "The Power of Breath”, shows the powerful and revitalising effects that correct breathing can have on the body and mind. The breath is the essential link between the physical and mental skills. Throughout life it is the most intimate companion, acting as an essential interface between the body and the mind. Tiredness as well as stress can be caused by improper breathing. The breath responds and controls emotions and thoughts. The classes will be both, practical and theoretical. You will learn simple tools to work with the physical breath, controlling it, to have the most efficient use of the life energy that Yogis call "prana". This is a workshop for both advanced yogis and beginners. Even if you have been practicing pranayama for a long time, you may still be missing some of the basics.

Self discovery and conflict resolution using Goddess Archetype

Date:April 18 2021, 10am -1 pm
Location:Live Online via Zoom
Title:Self discovery and conflict resolution using Goddess Archetype - Live Online
Instructor:Nuthan Manohar

Self discovery and conflict resolution using Goddess Archetype - A workshop on the feminine within. 

  1. What are archetypes. Introduction to the 12 Jungian Archetypes
  2. The need for the Goddess Archetype
  3. Immersion into various Goddess Archetype. Indian  Goddesses and various other Goddesses across civilisations
  4. Identifying your Goddess Archetype 
  5. Identifying conflict areas in life - roles, situations, inter-personal
  6. Invoking the Goddess : behaviour, intuition and instructional formats
  7. Invoking Goddess to resolve conflict.

My interest into Goddess Archetype came about when I was trying to understand my personality, my sexuality, what drives me and what I am simply terrible at. I could see that often the inter personal conflicts in my life were because we both belonged to different archetypal images. I could see that my weaknesses were when the roles I needed to play clashed with my own personality.

After much search, that too beyond the Indian mythology I did find an archetype I could instantly connect with Artemis - the tomboy Goddess of the hunt, healer, who protects the environment and women’s issues, sapiosexual, fiercely independent, great with animals, outdoorsy, strong and a fierce warrior.Finding her gave me a deep sense of relief - I found someone I was modelled after, someone I could look upto, someone vastly different from the sensual or domesticated goddesses. This also gave me a greater understanding of why I was not great at many roles - for instance to be charming and entertaining one needs to be like an Apsara.The freedom Goddess Archtypes provides is that you realise you have a dominant archetype , but there are also fragments of every other archetype. So when necessary we can make informed choice and shift to playing the role of another archetype.

In this workshop we explore various Goddesses across the globe. Like Artemis, there are interesting ones like Isthar the fertility Goddess with Eggs and Bunnys as her symbols (that we know as Easter now), Medusa the vile creature who killed men - who was once beautiful but turned angry after she was brutally raped.Through these stories we explore our own self and how we excel or fail in roles and interpersonal communications. Through simple guided visualisation practices we explore our ability to shift from one role to the other. The key difference is doing this effortlessly and not burn out in the process. The ultimate goal being to live a life of joy, peace and purpose.

For the workshop you only need:

  • a quiet room without disturbance
  • Yoga mat or rug
  • stable internet connection
  • Computer or tablet (if necessary smartphone) with camera and microphone with which you can dial in via zoom.

Ayurveda Home Remedies – Strenghten Your Health

Date:Aug1-6 2021
Location:Westerwald
Register:W210801-2
Title:Ayurveda Home Remedies – Strenghten Your Health
Instructor:Dr. Sivakaran Namboothiri

Ayurveda is the world's oldest holistic healing system. Ayurvedic treatment aims at balancing the Doshas to neutralize the disease process. By balancing the Doshas, the root of the disease process is cut off.
The basic rule is - whatever we can do for ourselves to improve our own health is more effective in the long run than what another person can do for us. As long as we are not living in harmony with our Prakriti (constitution) we cannot expect to be really healed by any method. Ayurveda emphasizes the importance of Ahara and Vihara (food and regimen) based on different Ritu kaalaas (seasons).Thereby maintaining a healthy state of body and mind.
Ayurvedic remedies work on a subtle internal level by correcting and improving the life force. Satwik or pure lifestyle gives peace and clarity of mind.
Our food ingredients like Ginger, Curcumin, Pepper, Cumin seed, coconut oil, sesame, coriander, Fenugreek, Garlic etc are the very powerful tools for many  disease conditions. As Taittiriyopanishad  says "Ahamannam,  Ahamannam,  Ahamannam,  Ahamannada" (I am food,  I am the eater of food and I eat  the eater  of food) and "Annam Brahma " (food  is Brahma).

Advanced yoga teachers' training- A7: Yoga Vasishta

Date:October 15-24 2021
Location:Bad Meinberg
Register:B211015-2
Title:Advanced yoga teachers' training- A7: Yoga Vasishta
Instructor:Swami Saradananda; Rama Schwab; Ramashakti Sikora

The Yoga Vashishta is an unbeatable guide to happiness in the midst of all the vicissitudes of life! Look forward to a very special, once-in-a-lifetime seminar. The highest philosophical wisdom will be sensitively, intuitively and wisely interpreted and explained.

The Yoga Vasishta is one of the most important Jnana Yoga texts. Prince Rama fees despair because of the suffering he sees in the world; he seeks a deeper meaning to life. His guru, the wise Vasishta, explains to him the highest wisdom of Vedanta, the philosophy of Oneness. The work is full of incredible stories - sometimes funny, often surreal, in parallel universes and worlds - to show us the illusionary nature of this world and our usual notions of "me" and "world".

But, the Yoga Vasishta is not a work solely for scholars and world-renouncing ascetics. Its basic message is: realise that behind the seemingly relative world there is an absolute manifested Truth. Realise that you are in fact Brahman, pure consciousness and break free from all limiting identifications. This is the way to overcome suffering and live happily.
