Spiritual Tools for Harmony in Your Relationships

  • Jul 10 – 12, 2020

with Nayaswami Diksha

It’s amazing how quickly a difficult relationship can respond to changes we make inside ourselves, without even involving the other person. The ancient science of yoga is time-tested and offers clear and potent guidance to help us.

A yoga master named Patanjali described an eight-limbed path to enlightenment. The first two limbs of his path relate directly to how we interact with others.

Exploring each of these limbs and the tools associated with them will give you a creative and fresh approach to bring to all your relationships – romantic, business, family, and more.

These 10 basic steps include the following, just to arouse your interest:

  • Harmlessness, or non-violence
  • Truthfulness, or non-lying
  • Non-stealing
  • Non-sensuality
  • Non-attachment
  • Purity
  • Contentment
  • Simplicity and inner power
  • Self-study
  • Devotion

Love alone will last. The laws of God are the laws of brotherhood and love.

— Paramhansa Yogananda

With introspection exercises, discussion, guided visualizations and meditations, you will begin to change from the inside out. Exercises to help you inspire you will give you tools for personal transformation.

As has often been said, “If you want to change the world, first change yourself!”
