Balancing Head & Heart: Wisdom & Love
With Swami SatyaDaya, Swami Krishnaprem & Tulsi
A new 7-day retreat to balance both head and heart, wisdom and love. Exploring how to be more at ease with both thoughts and feelings, and thereby open to the spaciousness that lies beyond both - the fertile ground for the arising of both wisdom and love.
24th - 31st August 2024
About This Retreat
The word yoga essentially means ‘union’. Union between both the disparate parts of ourselves, and, ultimately, the merging of our individual sense of identity with what we are fundamentally. Key to this is living a life in balance between the internal world of thoughts and concepts, and that of feelings and emotions. Such a balance enables an opening to both the deeper stirrings of the heart, and the deeper promptings of insight that arise from beyond the mind.
Are you often lost in thought, and disconnected or mistrustful of your emotions? Or someone who is habitually swept away by emotions, like a leaf in an emotional storm, and needing a steady centre? Our personality is as it is, and the goal is not to suppress or overly control any aspect of our nature. Yet we use the practices of yoga and meditation to gradually find a greater internal equilibrium, a steady centre between the play of thought and emotion.
Such a centre offers us the possibility of a greater acceptance, understanding and befriending of both thoughts and emotions. This in turn reveals the spaciousness that underlies both, which is the fertile ground of both intuition and compassion.More info
