Learn how to nourish the layers of your being to realize your divine self.
Achieving balance and success in both inner and outer life requires that we understand the different domains of human experience. The secular philosophy of Vedanta describes human life and the human personality as comprising five layers of matter: the five koshas or sheaths. By investigating their form and function we gain deeper self-awareness and greater freedom of action. And by caring for the outer sheath—our physical form—we are able to go inward and access the more subtle layers of our being.
Through the sister sciences of Vedanta and Ayurveda, we'll explore theses five sheaths and daily ayurvedic practices that help us to access our innermost core. The workshop itself is 3 hours and will end with a beautiful vegetarian ayurvedic lunch!
