Asana & Philosophy Intensive Overview:
The Shiva Sutras and All-Levels Asana
with Sam Rice and Catherine Stewart
Please join Sam Rice and Catherine Stewart for two days of asana and philosophy discussion. Each day will begin with a 3-hour all levels asana session with Sam designed to move the body and breath before we settle in for a rich discussion about the Shiva Sutras with Catherine in the afternoons.
Philosophy Focus = The Shiva Sutras
The Non-Dual Kashmir Shaiva Tantric tradition brings forward an inspiring view of the world and of human existence. In this seminar we will delve into the Shiva Sutras, the root text of the tradition, to explore the fundamental principles, teachings and practices developed to expand human consciousness and discover how this body of knowledge is supportive of contemporary householder life in contrast to the earlier notions of renunciation and asceticism.
Through this introduction course we will dispel the most common misunderstandings about what Tantra is and is not and gain a greater understanding of the following:
After the Weekend
Students interested in learning about Neelakantha Meditation have an opportunity to join Catherine on Monday and Tuesday (July 9 & 10) to learn about and receive a formal meditation practice. One of the primary teachings in the Non-dual Kashmir Shaiva tradition is the necessity for the synergy of both knowledge and experience. It is wonderful to experience intellectually what these wisdom traditions say about consciousness and you must also experience it in meditation and life to fully understand. Join Catherine for two days of personal instruction into Neelakantha Meditation where you can formally begin an effortless practice and experience the movement of your own awareness into the depths of consciousness.
