Four Desires: The Yoga of Fulfillment - a ParaYoga® Master Training
FOUR DESIRES- THE YOGA OF FULFILLMENT: A PARAYOGA MASTER TRAINING
From Mary: I recommend Four Desires as a true foundation to all yoga practice on and off the mat. It is, perhaps, the most transformational for me of all the coursework I have done in yoga, in that it has taught me how to identify, challenge, and transform my own underlying assumptions and beliefs. While there is some asana practice included, the emphasis overall is more internal, with deep introspective and self-examination. This course is offered 2-3 times per year as a 3-day weekend intensive. (A follow-up group or private session is required for certification.) It can be taken anytime.
According to ancient wisdom, the four aims of life: purpose, prosperity, pleasure and freedom provide the road map to achieving your most fulfilling, joyful and meaningful life. Achieving all four of these desires is the key to lasting happiness.
Uncover your soul’s unique purpose – Dharma – and begin to shape a life strategy so you live with a commanding sense of purpose, capacity and meaning!
Disentangle from your Vikalpa – the thought constructs borne from self-doubt and past experiences – that bind you to old patterns and keep you from creating a new future.
Establish a strong Sankalpa – an intention that aligns with Dharma and helps you move toward living your unique version of fulfillment.
· Dharma - purpose in life
· Vikalpa - unconscious thought patterns that sabotage you
· Sankalpa - short term intention that supports the deeper heart calling
· Buddhi / Connecting to Intuition
· Science of Manifestation - the science behind how things manifest, both in the world and in our lives.
· Yoga Nidra, Meditation, Self-reflection as tools for self-transformation
