A workshop that explores how yoga brings us back to health and wholeness and how it can be 'proved' scientifically, with Swami Nityamuktananda and Dr Shirley Telles.
Human beings have always been aware of two interlinked forces, the gross material world which we perceive through our sense and the subtle; call it Matter and Spirit. The relationship between the two has changed frequently in human history. More or less from the Middle Ages in the "Western Cultures " we live in a world where Spirit and Matter are split; the matter aspect is taken care of by Science, the Spirit by all forms of religious and spiritual traditions.
Increasingly Science became the official "truth-holder", until in the last century the balance seemed to shift. Since, it has been revealed that matter too is intelligent energy, that matter does not exist as separate from "Spirit"/consciousness/the light of wisdom etc. With this... ancient teachings throughout the globe and "new science" are healing the age-old split. As matter and spirit are seen as One, we are closer (albeit mainly in theory) to the Oneness of which Yoga and other spiritual traditions speak .
With this insight, Yoga itself employs more and more science to explore the effects of its ancient practices. What started with a few Sages, such as Swami Rama is now a world-wide phenomena, which we will explore more in the June-workshop. We will have the leading researcher into Yoga (Dr. Shirley Telles) with us, who will share and explain some of the amazing results that scientific research shows for how Yoga is healing that very split in us and bringing us into health and wholeness.
