Samyama: Yoga's Ultimate Meditation

Samyama is the state of intense focused attention that allows us to meditate and be absorbed in reality, while concentrating on all manner of activity. It can be practiced at all times, in all places, forever enhancing our lives through the clarity, insights and knowledge gained in this state defined as “concentration, meditation and absorption”.

Samyama is our greatest power, where all abilities come from. All of our attainments, achievements and successes come through varying levels of Samyama. To become a master of Samyama is to become a master of success. Samyama is the supreme methodology Yogis used to gain knowledge of everything, including the true nature of a human being.

Samyama is the state of intense focused attention that allows us to meditate and be absorbed in reality, while concentrating on all manner of activity. It can be practiced at all times, in all places, forever enhancing our lives through the clarity, insights and knowledge gained in this state defined as “concentration, meditation and absorption”.

The third chapter of Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, one quarter of the text, is dedicated to Samyama. This illustrates the essential nature of Samyama in the practice of Yoga, the science of uniting with reality.

Yoga Mimamsa: Philosophy for a Fulfilling Life

Yoga Mimamsa is the philosophical result of the investigation of reality. It is the Yogis realization from using Tarka, “reasoning and rationale” to examine themselves, the world and the incredible opportunity of human life.

The Yogis saw that all beings have a beneficial purpose that supports life around them. Yoga Mimamsa is the philosophy, the view, the motivation and the method, to live our intended purpose. Imagine an existence where, through your natural everyday activity, you benefit all beings!

Our Retreat will expose, elaborate and expound on Yoga Mimamsa, the knowing and application of how to live as true humane beings! Do not miss this extraordinary opportunity to hear, apply and experience the Yogis greatest contribution to the world.

Join us for one of the most exciting and revealing Yoga Retreats you will ever experience!

Tarka: Yogic Rational and Reasoning

Tarka is the inner debate inquiring into the true, absolute nature of something. It is the application of in depth logical thinking that has us asking questions, that lead to answers, that lead to more questions, and, finally, arrive at the Truth. The answer where no question arises. Reality. The answer provable at all times and all places, by our own experience. Irrefutable, non-debatable, rationally provable truth!

The Yogis took this power we all innately have and aimed it at answering the most important questions in life. Our weekend retreat will focus on using pure Tarka, beyond all emotion, public opinion, social norms, etc. to answer what is the true potential of a human life. We are all born wanting fulfillment, we seek it our whole lives. Application of Tarka, pure reason and rationale, leads us to the truth of how to find true fulfillment. Imagine a world governed by compassion and irrefutable logic, where the irrational destruction of our bodies, our fellow species and the planet no longer exists!

Through discourse, discussion, contemplation and application we will examine, discover and harness the life changing, world changing power of Tarka: intense reason and rationale.

Our Festival day includes:

  •  3 ½ hours teachings, application and discussion introducing Yogi life and Tarka

  •  An Asana (postures), Pranayam (breath extension) and meditation intensive

  • Sattvic (balanced) vegan fare-prepared by experienced dedicated practitioners and chefs
