The Root of the Lotus

(a four-month study of the Yoga Sūtra-s)

with LauraLynn Jansen, MHEd, CPCC, e-RYT

This course begins each new year (or when a group has formed) and meets each week, via modern technology for four months. It is an in-depth investigation of this ancient text attributed to Patanjali, and the application of it to modern times. The study of this sacred text is scholarly and reflexive. Take this opportunity for reviewing one of the most well known yogic texts, as well as a study of self (swadyaya). Students in the past have noted how engaging in the material brought them to a deeper understanding of “Yoga.” Also noted was a shift in personal and professional perspectives gained through the in-depth study of Yoga in its many forms. Each week a home practice is provided to bring the studies into the participant’s daily life. 

This is a chance to delve deep.

“Upon reflecting on our study, I know I learned a lot about the yoga sutras. It's a complex, deep text and I thank you for guiding us through it. I also feel that I have taken another step closer to spirituality in my life. I am beginning to notice more divine energy around me. Perhaps I am beginning to have more of that myself and so recognize and hopefully attract it as well. “

– L. Good, partaker of Root of the Lotus
