What’s one to do with a lonely day? We often hear of yogis who completely absorbed themselves in the meditation — didn’t it ever get lonely for them? Come hear of ancient yoga knowledge and how to perfectly combat that lonely weekend feeling.
There are a lot of references to Karma, good Karma and bad Karma, But do we stop to think about the consequences of each action? Karma is a domino trick, a trail of little reactions. Ancient yoga text will tell you that karma, a clear mind, and a happy life are very intimately connected. Join us for our weekly Soulfest as we attempt to undo our age-old karmic bonds.
Sometimes the karma story just doesn’t map out. My world can go from calm to chaotic but it just doesn’t seem I’m getting my rightful dosage of happiness. And what exactly is that amount of happiness based on? Yoga text tells us that in this time and age our ideas of goodness and happiness are bit off the mark. First the question genuinely comes: why do bad things happen to good people? But the old sages urge us to go deeper into the question: what is the greatest thing that can happen – and who is willing to receive it.
The word ‘enemy’ may seem that it best be reserved for action-thrillers or old westerns but the reality is we’ve all had our share of enemies. From the kid in kindergarten class who looked at you funny to someone outright obnoxious at work, and then of course to to all these little secrets about ourselves that we keep within us. And where are all these reactions and subconscious emotions stored? The mind. Join us at the Soulfest as we discuss the scientific and spiritual paradigms of the mind and how the mind is in fact the perfect enemy.
The yoga text asks us to begin small and analyze our daily lives. These so-called moments that make up the day are a series of interloping actions. How many of these actions, then, do we perform to maintain the decaying agility of ourselves and everything around us? And how many of them are for that nature of the self which is actually ever-lasting? Come out for another Soulfest as we dive into the nitty-gritty of the state of existence and see exactly which part of this great cycle is actually ever fresh.

Yoga texts encourage us to carefully examine the visible universe and assess the completeness of the information we perceive. Are there things unknown to a common mind – explore the unknown and take your mind beyond the usual confines of seeing is believing. How do we get the real spiritual experience when we cannot bluntly see this intangible, surreal thing?
