Lecture Topic: (Applying the Power of Yoga Philosophy in Everyday Life) Yoga is intended to be a deeply practical practice, not something to be talked about, but as a force to be lived and experienced. In this workshop, we will break down the most fundamental aspects of the Bhagavad Gita and the Sutras of Patanjali in such a way as to be available for direct application to your life. It is time for these profound truths to be moved out of mere discussion and into an active form of transformation and healing. In this intensive workshop there will be storytelling, chanting, instruction and open discussion.

Lecture Topic: (Yoga, Love and Intimacy) The most highly evolved aspects of the human mind and heart are most powerfully demonstrated and expressed in our relationships to others, especially in our most intimate relationships. In this lecture/workshop/discussion, we will explore how our yoga practice can deeply and profoundly affect our emotional/intimate life. Your practice can and should open pathways to deeper levels of intimacy, emotional freedom and romantic activity. The best measure of just how authentic your practice is, is how it affects your emotional, intimate and romantic life.

This retreat will take place in Athanor Centre in Lochem, on the edge of the Achterhoek. Athanor center owes its name to the alchemy. It is the furnace whose pure flame leads to transformation.
