Inner World of Yoga Day 30; Spiritual Accountability by Wendy Kolanz

Inner World of Yoga: Day 30

Spiritual Accountability

Inner World of Yoga: Day 29

Journey with Music and Meaning for Ascension

Gayatri Mantra has been called the most sacred, powerful and meaningful of mantras in the Vedic tradition. Sacred music in any language is powerful. It is likely that the more ancient the language, the easier its vibrational quality flows, opening us to the power of the Divine.

Inner World of Yoga day 26: Mind Structure and Childhood Decisions - Innocence, Part 4 by Wendy Kolanz

Inner World of Yoga: Day 26

Mind Structure and Childhood Decisions: How simply it happens in innocence.

Inner World of Yoga Day 25: Mind Structure Vasanas and Samskaras, Part 3 by Wendy Kolanz

Inner World of Yoga: Day 25

Mind Structure: Vasanas and Samskaras

Part 3

 

As long as we are caught in our mind stuff – decisions, patterns and habits of reaction created by our vasanas and samskaras – we remain blind to our real nature and reality. We continue to live in a state of suffering, and we continue to engage in mental and emotional distraction for release, which means we fluctuate wildly between…

Inner World of Yoga Day 22: Yoga and Your Beliefs by Wendy Kolanz

Inner World of Yoga: Day 22

Week 4: YOGA and Your Beliefs
