contemplations from deep retreat

"come celebrate" - filmed at three jewels vancouver in march 2013, five months after we emerged from a silent yoga and meditation retreat of just under three years. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

keeping the bliss - yoga of relationships

doing a silent, isolated three year retreat with someone is like spending three years on a sailboat with them.  padma and roger offer some ideas for navigating the swells!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

nauli

one of the six shatkarma outlined in hatha yoga pradipika - designed to purify your physical body and enable you to access and use your subtle body for its intended purpose.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1% ends our suffering

it only takes an infinitesimal shift to put a spanner in the works of samsara.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the real goal of yoga

beyond being able to lick your toes in pashchimottanasana or double bind your pigeon pose, a dedicated yoga practice results in a different kind of being.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

why do we meditate?

without a very good reason, we can't sustain our practice beyond the "honeymoon" phase!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

the importance of meditation posture

unimpeded flow of prana into sushumna happens when we get the posture right.
