Yoga Psychology with Dhanurdhara Swami

April 8, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT

Hari-kirtana das welcomes his teacher, Dhanurdhara Swami, to Sky House Yoga for a workshop on human psychology as seen through the lens of yoga philosophy. Despite the common conceptions of yoga philosophy trafficking solely in esoteric mysticism, human psychology is one of many practical topics on which the branches of Vedic knowledge reliably report. Utilizing the teachings of Bhagavad-gita and Patanjali’s Yoga-sutras, Dhanurdhara Swami will describe the nature of the mind and how it can be favorably transformed with the aid of these time-honored texts. His presentation will give special emphasis to the problem of self-discipline and how the psychology of yoga can be utilized to change persistent habits and unfavorable behaviors. Consisting of dialog, questions and answers, and experiential learning exercises, this workshop will be an excellent way to experience the enduring value of Vedic knowledge and to apply its message of transformation in the course of our daily lives.

CE credits are available for yoga teachers.

Free Registration – Donations can be made at the door.

Dhanurdhara Swami was initiated into the Gauḍīyā Vaiṣṇava lineage by Śrīla A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda in 1974. In 1982, he accepted the sannyāsa āśrama or renounced order of life.

He is the author of three books — Waves of Devotion: A Comprehensive Study of The Nectar of Devotion, Greetings from Vrindavana, a selected collection of his thoughts and realizations from 2000–2004, and Japa Meditations: Contemplations on Entering the Holy Name, a collection of selected personal realizations on japa meditation by Mahārāja and others.

Dhanurdhara Swami spends half of the year in India where he focuses on bhajana, studying, writing and taking people on pilgrimage of holy places. The other half of the year Mahārāja is in the West where he spends his time traveling and speaking about bhakti-yoga.
