DHARMA & DESIRE: FINDING PURPOSE AND CREATING A LIFE OF ABUNDANCE (75 hours)


Each of us enters the world with a unique dharma (purpose), a potentiality that we are meant to realize. When we are not living our purpose we miss out on the pleasure of filling that exceptional space the universe meant for us to fill. We can live an abundant and more meaningful life when we shape it from the wisdom and calling of our highest self.


Yoga and Tantra provide a profound yet practical approach to finding meaning and purpose in our lives, and tools to unlock our capacity to achieve it.  Become aware of your heart’s deepest desire and learn how to manifest the things you need to fulfill it.  During this course we’ll learn various techniques including yoga, meditation, visualization, journaling, and yoga nidra to help us discover our unique purpose and to live our most vibrant life.


Topics covered include:
  • Understanding the Role of Desire
  • Clarifying Your Dharma/Purpose in This Life
  • Increasing the Energy of Transformation
  • Decreasing Resistance to Change
