Healing the Heart
Healing the Mind

The heart is alive. In fact, it brings life to us with each pulsation, sending rivers of prāna flowing through our plasma, blood, muscle, fat, skeleton, marrow and finally, our vital reproductive juices. There it transforms into our very essence itself or leaves us to form a new life with another beautiful heartbeat singing its song!

This heart that is the fiery sun of our own universe, is ever producing our minds through its sensory rays and clear light! Mind as it spreads its venous tentacles to every sense organ so that we can fully experience the world around us. Mind that extends instinctively down into our bellies, so we vicariously feel each perceptive truth as a somatic experience. And mind, like a tree, sends its rising branches upwards to form our brain. Where we think, imagine, reason and occasionally perceive the highest truths.

And yet, we imprison this heart behind gates of arrogance, lust, hatred, greed, jealousy and pride. And we subject it cruelly to fears, unjustly to angers and unmercifully to grieving.

Our hearts are the key to our lives. Heal our heart and we heal our mind. In healing the mind we finally discard the undigested toxins of fear, anger and grief. And spontaneously and oh so creatively, the heart sings its joy and its simple innocent declaration- know me and know peace.

In the Vedic tradition, the heart is the seat of emotions, of prāna and of our intrinsic immunity. It is also the origin of the mind and it is from the heart that the mind as emotions moves towards the brain for intellectual understanding and the gut for instinctive behavior. If we free our emotional seat from the siege of its enemies: fear, anger and grief then the rightful emotions of playfulness, innocence and joy rule supreme once again. It is a journey of remembrance. One we should all take together. Yoga and Āyurveda show us the way to do so.
The Heart as Seat of Mind
The Qualities of the Heart: Creativity, Innocence and Joy
Understanding Heart Disease Through Āyurveda: Treating Through Yoga
The Enemies of the Heart: Fear, Anger and Grief

 A heart to heart prayer:

May we together be each others protection.
May we together nourish each other.
May we together become each others strength.
May we together become wise.
May we always be friends.
May we support each other in finding peace.

May your breath always be at peace!

The Yogi’s Journey to India

Into the Forest,
By the Sacred River

Week Two: The sacred river
$3200 Early Bird. Based on double occupancy.

Single Occupancy +$500*

The magic of the Corbett National Park is where we begin. Tucked into a luxurious hideaway with delicious, homegrown organic meals, a lodge, a magnificent yoga hall and surrounded by the call of the wild. We spend a week here learning how to personalize our yoga and fit it into an ayurvedic lifestyle.

Ganges. The sacred river. At Rishikesh, one of the most vibrant, colorful stops along this holy river, we find her here as pristine as she can be, having just descended from her source. It is here that the great rsi’s of yore meditated. We will visit the temple where Siva swallowed the poison to save the world, the cave where Sage Vashishta did his meditation and celebrate the river every morning and evening with songs and fire. Here we will find the deeper meanings of yoga, for many say this is its root home and we will see it in all its colors!

Delhi: October 2-3

Arrive in Delhi, the capitol of India. You will be met at the airport. Spend a couple of days getting grounded. Includes a visit to the Lotus Temple for meditation. A drive around town. A lovely dinner at Arun’s family home…

and some good shopping to get you vetted into the ways…

Onwards to Corbett National Park: October 4-8

JJRetreat is a luxurious hideaway in the verdant Corbett National Park. Situated at the foothills of the Himalayas, Corbett is the most prominent wildlife sanctuary in India. Two jeep safaris are included that show you a rich variety of flora and fauna. Although a tiger sighting is rare, many species of deer and birds abound. In the distance you may see a herd of elephant when we pass through shallow grass.

The rustic cottages at JJR specialize in richly decorated tapestries and furnishings and all the comforts of home (except TV:). The cafe and restaurant serve exquisite food. Much of it provided by an organic garden brimming with vegetables. And the local cows, from their own backyards, provide fresh milk daily. The riverbed and adjoining village make for some excellent hiking. Here, in the magnificent yoga hall we will deepen our studies and begin the process of creating personal yoga practices that go from kriyas to asana to pranayama to meditation and contemplation. Practices that we bring home as a forever gift from India.

Rishikesh: October 9-14

Among all the sacred towns along the Ganges, Rishikesh is closest to its wild mountain waters. This holy town straddles both sides of the river, connecting mainly through two suspension bridges. The town is a haven for both tourists and ascetic holy men. Brimming with temples, artisan shops, local vegetarian restaurants, even an Italian pizza house, it will home us for 5 nights.

Here, we will do evening pujas,

hike to a legendary sage’s cave, optionally river raft, but most important of all we will worship the river and bring a deeper dimension to our yoga practice: that of chanting and worship. We will learn the true meaning of surrender is to find the joy of acceptance!

Delhi: October 15/16

Having taken the evening train from Rishikesh on the 14th and settling into our hotel, we wake up to our last day in India. A chance to catch our breath or do last minute shopping before taking a night flight home. Please note, most night flights leave after midnight and thus would officially be the 16!

The Retreat officially ends and India awaits any fearless explorers who wish to do more. YogaRasayana’s trusted travel agents are available to help with this!

Yoga Sutras Patanjali with Arun Deva

Ancient Wisdom for Modern Times

The Yoga Sutras are about the tradition of yoga. They clearly define the goal, the practices and the path.  Although the paths and practices are numerous, the final goal is singular. It is peace of mind.

The transformation of patterns into essence.
To find ourselves and come to peace.

The legend is that the eternal serpent upon which rests pure consciousness was awakened by a restless moving of this consciousness. And was sent to seek an answer to end all such restlessness. Through observing the dance of Śiva he discovered yoga.

The beauty is its recognition that as individuals we all seek the same goal but are unable to break our patterns because we cannot put a name to our restlessness. When yoga leads us to this answer we are set free.

Arun teaching yoga students

In this short weekend immersion we will imagine the final goal as Patañjali may have and we will then explore how to adapt the path to our individual states of being, and our own world circumstances. We may find that though much has changed in practice, nothing has changed in principal. Starting with the first chapter where the final goal is laid out in the first 15 sutras, we will jump to the second chapter to the practices for beginning the journey. Besides the traditional understandings of the classical commentaries, we will bring relevance to our own journeys here and now. And we will find how the traditional yoga can indeed infuse our modern practices.

This workshop is informed by a desire to show the huge potential of yoga and how āsana practice has the power to give us an inkling of this. When the āsana expands into something more, then we have begun the inner yoga.

 Rasa Bhāva, the art of rejuvenating the emotional body, is an ongoing practice. Like developing an unused muscle, it takes time, persistence and consistency.

This retreat is to both take it deeper, and to add dimensions to it that cannot be added in a workshop. 

Plus…the flavor of India, its very rasa, adds a delicious secret spice to the recipe!

We begin in Kerala. At a beautiful Ayurvedic Retreat Center. Here we spend 5 full days immersed in the study of the Rasa Bhāva experience. To understand and manage our emotional body. Physically, mentally, psychically and spiritually, we will learn to occupy our own persona and move beyond our life long trainings in fear, anger and grief, and to occupy and remember our own original creativity, innocence and joy. As you will see below, this can be a pretty joyous experience.

And then we will take it out on the road! To see if we can be fully present, alive and positive to our surroundings, the beauty of ancient India: its palaces, forts, temples, colors, sights, sounds, aromas and tastes. We will of course visit the Taj Mahal, but also a magnificent Jain Temple. We will take a camel ride, stay in luxury tents, visit old royal villas, wander through ancient forts and living palaces. Having first nurtured with specific yogic and āyurvedic practices, we should now be ready to have a grand experience indeed!

The retreat is limited in space.

The gently sloping grounds are sprinkled with traditional thatched cottages and Kerala style wooden bungalows, nestled among native medicinal plants and coconut groves. We will stay in the Garden Cottages; independent thatched huts rooming two people.

Oct 3/4: Drive to Jaipur, the Pink City. The very heart of this magical land called Rajasthan. A land known for its nobility, its hard desert fortitude and incredible grace. It’s where the homes are often villas of old (we will stay in one) and where the palaces and temples are beautifully colorful and the forts sit on formidable mountain tops, seeming impregnable.

Oct 4: Amber Fort, City Palace, and Jantar Mantar. Amber Fort is magnificently set on the top of a hill. We will take the rampart all the way by elephant (with luck), visit the courtyard and enter the inner palace. City Palace is still active as home to the current Maharaja. It is a spectacular setting with powerful museums and history. Jantar Mantar is the magic of 19 astronomical instruments including precise sun dials from the 1700’s!

WHAT IS RASA BHĀVA? download/martin-garrix-ocean-8d-audio-ft-khalid/qpZ9WaYdDvg.html|슈어맨|검증사이트|먹튀검증사이트|먹튀검증업체

EMOTIONS: LANGUAGE OF THE HEART download/martin-garrix-ocean-8d-audio-ft-khalid/qpZ9WaYdDvg.html|슈어맨|검증사이트|먹튀검증사이트|먹튀검증업체

In the ancient vedic sciences, the heart is considered the root of the mind.

While we are quite aware of the power of instinct and its home in the enteric gut and brain stem; and equally aware of the power of rational intelligence and its home in the neocortex; by assigning the home of emotions to the limbic region we may be missing its root source and doing a great disservice to our most important organ.

It is from the heart that the “felt sense” arises and thus mediates between instinct and reason. The connection between wisdom and compassion that gives rise to ethics and sharing is the state of our emotional body.

In trauma, this state is under attack and our emotions of joy, creativity, and innocence curdle into grief, rage and fear. Learning to decouple from trauma is always possible and trauma is not always  clinical. It is not necessarily chronic or even acute. It can be that which simply interferes with compassion and wisdom in our day-to-day life. It forces us to contract into survival, into seeking perverse pleasures and often sinking into bouts of rage and frustration, into irrational cravings for control and domination, into a coldness of heart and even into fear of speaking our truth.

Combining the wisdom of yoga and Ayurveda and linking it with the language of somatic psychotherapies, we find that keys to healing trauma are the same keys that unlock us from fears, irrational tempers and grieving.  They deliver us safely into being grounded: allowing enjoyments, senses of purpose, openings of the heart and the ability to live our truths.

These teachings are clear and practical in the yoga path. Once combined with the basic teachings of Ayurveda, such as diet, lifestyle and the proper use of exercise, they become powerful therapeutic tools.

When we free the heart of its bondage to life trauma, we open to the salve of the higher emotional states and enter into our own lives as warriors of light and love.

When the heart is set free we find courage, fortitude, grace, selflessness and we find the emotions that are our birthright and our pathways to freedom from suffering.

In these ancient sciences, we call this “sattvavajaya cikitsa”: the victory of truth.

In what I have coined rasa bhāva, we learn to cultivate the essence of the heart.

HOW DO WE UNDERSTAND THE EMOTIONAL BODY? download/martin-garrix-ocean-8d-audio-ft-khalid/qpZ9WaYdDvg.html|슈어맨|검증사이트|먹튀검증사이트|먹튀검증업체

The link between the mind and the different organs/systems of the body is  well researched and documented in Ayurveda. Now the progressive field of psychotherapy has related our instincts to our reptilian stem, our emotional to the limbic, and the rational to our neo-cortex.

In Āyurveda, however, the mind is not restricted to this structure, instead it begins in the heart, reaches downwards into the gut and upwards into the brain. The connections are easy to see as seats of instincts, feelings and sensation/thought. Therefore, all our instincts and our rational thinking revolve around the mediating emotional state.

When our emotional state is one of creativity, innocence and joy, we see beauty, feel compassion and instinctually open to universal waves of loving. However, when our emotions are dominated by fear, anger and grief, we become susceptible to the 6 enemies of the mind: lust, rage, greed, jealousy, envy and delusion. And our thinking and functionality begins to operate from these states. In Ayurveda, it is also said that if you wish to conquer these six enemies, there is no better pathway than that of yoga (sattvavajaya cikitsa).

After years of personal practice, study and teaching on the relationship of the emotional body to our health and our peace of mind, the results I have gained offer clear, succinct information on the use of these yogic tools. We will do actual practices to show their effectiveness in transforming fear, anger and grief into creativity, innocence and joy.

CURRICULUM: download/martin-garrix-ocean-8d-audio-ft-khalid/qpZ9WaYdDvg.html|슈어맨|검증사이트|먹튀검증사이트|먹튀검증업체

Foundational aspects of Ayurveda and Yoga and where they intersect in therapy. Connecting sattva (clarity) rajas (restlessness) and tamas (inertia) to our individual natures of vāta (neurological/respiratory), pitta  (digestive) and kapha (immune): personalizing our emotional healing.

The Preliminaries: Diet, Lifestyle & Relationships affect every aspect of our lives as key pillars to health. This includes a clear understanding of food, sleep, exercise, and intimacy as part of daily living.

Relating these traditional practices to current western psychosomatic languages and understandings. How such understandings as the doshas, gunas, alternate nostril breathing, therapeutic vinyasas, mindfulness and other such yogic and Buddhist practices are related to advances being made in the field of psychotherapy.

Understanding the tools of yoga & ayurveda in emotional therapy. We will examine the roles of kriya, vinyāsā, āsana, prānāyāma, mudra, bandhā, japā, dhāranā and dhyāna. That is cleansing breathing, sequencing to place in intelligent postures, awareness breathing, external and internal symbolization, internal locks, chanting, becoming aware through breath and body and finally sitting in awareness.

Svatantra Nyāya: Finding that the logic inherent within wisdom and compassion equates with love and intelligence. This is the deeper healing, where we end up when we have learned the logic of the body as correct action, breath as correct speech and mind as superior contemplation.

Practical Sessions that will utilize all the yogic tools we speak about so we can actualize the experience of emotional stability. This practice will vary daily as our circumstances and growth require us to be flexible. Although the practice is designed to be all inclusive to most levels of practitioners, for those who have injuries or special needs, times may come where you may also just observe the practice. It can be just as powerful.

Additional Sessions: In a forest, all trees thrive in each others company. Similarly, whenever possible we will engage in joint sangha meditations and discussions.

May we always be friends in the light,
