Turning Darkness to Light
Yoga North International SomaYoga Institute – "Being a part of a group practice gives us the opportunity to taste the joy of unity; the joy of being an integral part of something bigger, better, brighter, and more enlightened and powerful than ourselves. It is this experience that eventually instills our minds and hearts with vision and courage to bring an extraordinary change both in the world inside us and outside us..." —Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Ph D Spiritual Head ??Become a force of change! ? Humanity has endured cycles of prosperity and impoverishment, peace and darkness, ingenuity and stagnation, spirituality and science, for centuries. Where we are today in this process of growth and decline may be seen as we observe—both externally and internally—the qualities of fear, anger, sorrow, and greed, and their proportionate interplay with those of love, compassion, and joy. ?Now is the perfect time for ?aspiring souls who believe in the power of collective consciousness—one that is positive, vibrant, and focused, and fills our consciousness with inner abundance and fulfillment—to take personal yoga practice to the next level. ?Shelly brings a message and a practice from Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute.
