Aug 2: Let’s Talk About Ego:
July 12:What is the best way to focus the agitated mind?
Too many options, can’t make a decision, what if you are wrong? Are these questions that plague your mind? Technology can’t help solve these kinds of problems they are the problem. A few classes ago we spoke on clearing the dust from the mind….NOW Dharana! So what is dharana? The one-pointedness of mind isn’t an extreme focus like you might think, because that is unbalanced and isn’t sustainable. So dharana is actually a relaxed holding of the mind in a single point, rather than a tense holding of the mind in a single point. If there’s tension, you can’t sustain it. Jeffrey will talk about how to maintain this balanced state and to recover yourself quickly when you lose it!
June 7, 2015:Removing the Dust from the Mirror of the Mind: The Secrets of YOGA PsychologyLearn: How yogis achieve focus, calm the nervous system, stay centered, overcome fears, sleep deeply, digest well, achieve ecstacy and find daily inner peace.
May 3 TOPIC: Jeffrey will decide something wonderful!
April 19: MANTRA: Using Mantra as a Healing Tool for Mind and Body
Mantra takes you beyond the mind into a state of healing. In this class Jeffrey Armstrong will answer your mind’s objections and inspire you to take action. Learn to heal your cells, body and mind.
March 1, 2015: Transcendence, Desire and Divine Intimacy
This is your chance to get your questions answered about sex, love and spirituality. We’ll talk about the psychology of male and female, reclaiming the feminine divine, loving without limits, and how to integrate transcendence with intimacy. We’ll also talk about how to keep each other love inspired through the winds of change. This evening Jeffrey will offer you a bigger perspective: He will explain how yogi’s see and work with KAMA to find and fulfill their purpose in life; how the energy is locked in the kunda and what it means to awaken your kundalini.
Feb 1, 2015: Initiation into the Cosmic Energies of Agni (fire) – Develop your fire – Find your desire
What is Your Desire? Let’s face it – we all want a lot of things and we all would like to have a lot of different things in our lives – but wanting and desiring something are very different. For example: you may want to make more money – but what do you really desire? If you think that money will give you more time, more security, more freedom – then what you really desire is freedom, security, more time and perhaps a comfortable lifestyle. You say you want more money – but you really desire something completely different – something that you think having more money will allow you to achieve. Realizing and understanding your core desire is critical to your success — isn’t this what all the motivational seminars teach you these days?
This evening Jeffrey will offer you a bigger perspective: He will explain how yogi’s see and work with AGNI to find and fulfil their purpose in life; how the energy is locked in the kunda – and what it means to awaken your kundalini. Our culture is burning the wrong fuels and creating the wrong kind of fire and this has distorted our understanding of fire. When you restore your sacred relationship with fire you become empowered to heal yourself and the planet.
Jan 11, 2015: Spiritual Destinations: What does it all mean?
You’ve heard all the words…liberation, moksha, nirvana. Where do you come from? Where do you go? Is your final destination Heaven, the Void, Brahman, Svarga Loka, Deva Loka, the Transcendental, or Paradise just to name a few. Perhaps this is your final destination? This Sunday we will explore some of the answers… bring your questions!
