There is a universal field of intelligence, which underlies all life. Ignorance of this field results in suffering, whereas acting in harmony with it brings success and happiness into our lives in a natural way, supplementing our individual efforts with the spontaneous support of others and our surroundings.
Based on the traditional wisdom of the Vedic philosophy, this course will teach you an easy and enjoyable way to contact this field and enjoy the benefits. Practical techniques will be combined with an understanding of consciousness and the principles that structure body, mind, and spirit, resulting in an inspiring vision of the purpose and destiny of human existence.
Alistair Shearer has been teaching meditation therapies around Europe for over thirty years. His translations of the key Sanskrit yoga texts such as the Yoga Sutras and the Upanishads have won acclaim from critics as various as Ram Dass, Jacob Needleman, and John Updike.
The course will run for two and a half hours each day. In the morning there will be a workshop and meditation session (1 and a half hrs.) and in the afternoon yoga and pranayama practice (1 hr.). This nicely balanced routine will leave ample time to enjoy the restful environs of The Hermitage.
