Śarīra Traya (Triple Body Theory) & Darśanam (Conceptual Frameworks): Renewing Inner Practice

Our choices and actions in the world are influenced by how we perceive ourselves and the world around us, and our perceptions emerge from our conceptual frameworks that are often unexamined. Surfacing and examining these conceptual frameworks can free us from their constraints, open us to a subtler and deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us, and influence our choices as we continue our life’s journey.

The world’s Wisdom Literature developed conceptual frameworks to explain the mystery of life. These frameworks, or models, became the foundation for transformational practices, each relying upon their own unique symbol systems. Until we understand the underlying conceptual models, the symbol systems will remain mostly unintelligible. Once we understand a framework, the symbols associated with the framework become alive and can be used in transformational practice.

Over time, a “Triple Body” theory emerged that synthesized these diverse models and their respective symbols systems, and pointed beyond the models and symbols to the Oneness that underlies all human experience.

In this event, we will explore the Triple Body Theory or, Śarīra Traya, as transmitted through the Vedic tradition, as well as some of the more traditional conceptual frameworks or, Darśanam, that evolved in Vedic Philosophy (including Dualism and Nondualism) in order to understand their views and examine our own conceptual frameworks through that lens. The intention of our journey will be to surface and free ourselves from our own limiting conceptual frameworks, illumine traditional Symbol Systems, and bring new life to our own inner practice.

    • Thanks for your inquiry. Check-in begins at 4pm on Wednesday, and the first session is after dinner. The retreat ends at lunch time on Sunday, with lunch included before your check out.
      Does that answer your question?
