We will look at the exact correlation between the components of each exercise and their effects on the soul and bodily sheaths, and therefore are a primary influence on health. We will understand how physical illness has a soul-spiritual cause and soul illness has a physical cause.

Health and Hindrances on the Path
Camphill Triform, Hudson, NY
This workshop will focus on understanding the different experiences that unfold through meditative practice and the gifts that support us in our unfolding soul development. We will look at the difficulties and hindrances that affect the inner work both from within us and outside of us. These hindrances can block the progressing levels of soul experience and even prevent us from carrying out our meditative practice, whereas the evolving forces help us on the path. The pre-requisite for this workshop is the completion of the foundation workshop.
NOTE: Even if you’re not managing a full practice, this workshop is useful in helping to understand the hindrances we meet in approaching a meditative practice.

June 14 – 16
