Working with difficult emotions
Yoga House Pasadena
Saturday, December 11, 2-4:30pm
In the Yoga Sutra, Patañjali states that the practice of Yoga reduces the outflow of mental and emotional energy through a gradual re-absorption into the primary cosmic matrix.
Patañjali mentions depression as one symptom which distracts the consciousness from the yogic path. This condition appears to be quite universal. We are either unhappy or afraid of being unhappy. Patañjali refers to it as the “anguish of transformation.” On account of this, Patañjali mentions that even “joyful experiences have the tinge of sorrow to the discriminating individual.” What we call depression seems to be an outflow of the suffering into which we are born and which Yoga may help us to transcend.
