[KULA] Samyama: Climbing the Higher Limbs

  • Beetroot Sauvage 33-41 Ratcliffe Terrace, Edinburgh EH9 1SX (map)

The March Edition of KULA will begin as always with a practice led by Helen & Demelza. The Workshop portion of the month will be taught by Nikki & Mark Miller. 

Samyama: Climbing the Higher Limbs
The final three limbs of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras concern explicitly the practice of meditation. Dharana (powerful attention), Dhyana (effortless meditation) and Samadhi (deep meditative absorption) are presented as states that create the condition for Self-knowledge to arise free from the distortions and distractions of everyday mind. The aim of this workshop will be to explore the nature of these higher limbs from both a theoretical and practical perspective.
