The philosophy of our training is delivered in a non-dogmatic way, inviting group discussions where all beliefs and opinions are respected. We use class discussions, circles, artwork, chanting, static movement, trance dance,  empathetic listening, and meditation processes to explore the spiritual systems of Patanjali’s sutras, Vedanta, Advaita Vedanta, Samkhya, and Tantra.

We believe that these spiritual systems all offer a different perspective of the same truth and we hope that in our explorations, students can find in these belief systems, tools to strengthen the mind, emotions, and spirit, a spiritual rock to lean on in times of need, deeper insight to our true nature and a deeper sense of worth that lies inherent in our being.
