We live in perpetual state of identification with and attachment to changing internal conditions and external circumstances, not seeing our true nature. The Ancients said that the cause of this perpetual cycle (saṁsāra) is the bondage of – Avidyā (ignorance), Kāma (desire) and Karma (action) – resulting in the tension and suffering of distorted self-perception, unfulfilled desires, and incessant activity.

The Ancients said that this three-fold bondage forms the framework of our personality, and called it, collectively, the Hṛdaya Granthi: the “knot of the heart”.

Discover of the “knots of the heart-mind” (hṛdaya-granti) in relation to the bondage of desire, action, and ignorance as they manifest through the cakra-s and influence our feelings, thoughts and behavior. We will use the cakra model to explore these knots that form the framework of our personality and bind us in this life. Untying the knots leads to the psycho-energetics of transformation.

We will explore the Brāhma, Viṣṇu, and Rudra Granthi-s; the Śarīra Traya The Triple Body Theory; the Laya Yoga methods of Bhūta Śuddhi, Cakra Sādhana, and Devatā Yoga; and the teachings of Dattātreya.  Each session will include an integrated practice, using āsana, prāṇāyāma, chanting, mantra, and meditation.
