Ayurvedic Health Counselor and founder of Radiant Health, Jamie Worster will share Ayurvedic tips and recommendations for summer, the Pitta season, followed by calming yoga. SUMMER is a joyful and exuberant season as nature shines forth in full expression! Longer days means more time to play and frolic in the sun.

Unlocking the Ego

Fall Intensive with Jamie Worster + Catherine Stewart, Freeport, ME October 26, 2019


Asana & Philosophy Intensive Overview:

Unlocking the Ego, and All-Levels Asana

with Jamie Worster and Catherine Stewart

Please join Jamie Worster and Catherine Stewart for a full day of yoga asana (poses) and philosophic discussion. Enjoy all levels asana sessions with Jamie designed to move the body and breath in between rich yogic philosophy discussion with Catherine.

Philosophy Focus = Unlocking the Ego
Is the ego truly an obstacle that needs to be overcome? Or could it also be an extraordinarily useful tool for the transformation of consciousness? The Non-Dual Kashmir Shaiva Tantric tradition brings forth the idea that all manifesting things are an expression of Consciousness itself. The concept of the human ego gets caught in misunderstanding between non-dualistic and dualistic traditions as the views on the functionality of the ego differ between the two. Join Catherine in unlocking a higher understanding and perspective of your ego as explained by these ancient traditions via the Non-Dual Shaiva teachings and it’s role in your spiritual path.


After the Intensive
Students interested in learning about Neelakantha Meditation have an opportunity to join Catherine on Sunday and Monday (October 27 +28) to learn about and receive a formal meditation practice. One of the primary teachings in the Non-dual Kashmir Shaiva tradition is the necessity for the synergy of both knowledge and experience. It is wonderful to experience intellectually what these wisdom traditions say about consciousness and you must also experience it in meditation and life to fully understand. Join Catherine for two days of personal instruction into Neelakantha Meditation where you can formally begin an effortless practice and experience the movement of your own awareness into the depths of consciousness. Learn more at www.naMalini.com or email Catherine at: catherine@ohayer.com
