Opposites Attract – The Perfect Yogic Balance of Head and Heart

Categorie(s): Yoga,

When: Tuesday, February 8, 2011

Time: 4:00 to 5:00 pm PST

Bhakti Yoga is yoga of the heart, using devotion and love to merge with the infinite. Jnana Yoga is yoga of the Mind, using tools like reason, discernment, and discrimination to uncover truth. They seem like opposites, but in this workshop you’ll learn that Bhakti and Jnana are not so different. They are the same energy being channeled either through the emotions or intellect to reveal your divine nature.

We all have many different moods and temperaments within us engaging either heart or mind. Sometimes the heart is dominant while the mind stays quiet. Sometimes the mind is the leader and the heart stays silent. Sometimes they are in conflict causing us distress. Often we realize the need to align heart and head.

Looking at our basis temperaments, some claim to be more of the devotional type living from the heart embracing the Bhakti Yoga Path. Bhakti Yoga is felt to be one of the most accessible and enjoyable ways to merge with the infinite. Living a life of devotion seamlessly meshes with that part of our temperament.

In this workshop you will explore and enjoy both Bhakti and Jnana Yoga, allowing emotions to flow into devotion in Bhakti Yoga and intellect to melt into intuition in Jnana Yoga. Discover how two seemingly opposites can lead us to the joy of knowing our true Divine Nature.
