The Upanishads, defined as “Self knowledge that delivers lasting happiness,” are ancient Vedic teachings from India. There is no one specific author and their writings span over hundreds of years. Written often in the form of a dialogue between the teacher and student, they explore the lessons of yoga and the yogic way of life. Often, a student asks his teacher questions that we still seek today – how can we be happy? The answer from each teacher is timeless – true happiness is found within. The specific method to access this happiness is dependent on the Upanishad.
Come join Jeanne Heileman as she explains the origin of the Upanishads and how they sit in the landscape of yoga scriptures. Jeanne will then select a few well-known Upanishads for the group to read and process, bringing the material from your brain to your heart. This form of study, Jnana Yoga, will feed into your physical practice, meditation and effectiveness in your actions off the mat. You are promised a lively, fun and inspiring evening!
