Going deeper in Philosophy and Meditation

Going deeper in Philosophy and Meditation

Going deeper in Philosophy and Meditation

with Marit Akintewe

Going Deeper into Yoga Philosophy and Meditation is designed to help you live more skilfully, through living an examined life.

Using ancient advice and modern ideas we will consider the search for truth and happiness. An applied course of how we engage with life, our mindset, our ability to find joy and contentment in each moment.

Reaching across disciplines or western science, Indian Yoga, Buddhism, and modern thinkers to help guide us on a journey of personal reflection. On this course we shall study the teachings on how to act from the Bhagavad Gita, the non-dual philosophies of Ramana Maharshi, the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, modern philosophers like Sam Harris (spirituality without religion - waking up), Rosenburg (non Violent Communication) and Jack Kornfield.

We shall go on this journey together using books, online material, podcasts, personal evolution assignments (PEAs), a buddy system, and group discussion, to integrate these ideas into your life.

This is a year of personal discovery and transformation, a study of truth, and joy and how to live more fully.

12 Saturday's (10 - 2pm, with 2 full days) over a year. Each session will have a structure roughly similar to this: Starting with guided meditation, then a lecture on a given topic, a short movement practice focused on relaxing the body and mind, then a workshop format learning and discussion of topics studied in the month, finishing with yoga nidra. Plus learning and guided practices between sessions.(Live zoom dates can be missed as they will be recorded and can be caught up with, as long as you continue on your learning journey between the sessions.)

A strong interest in philosophy, or a 200 hour yoga teacher qualification is required for this course.

Course costs £80 per month (first payment 1st February) for 11 months, or lump sum payment of £800.

All sessions live stream in 2021 on zoom.
