Upasana is a devotional approach for attaining peace. It includes chanting of Sanskrit prayers, scriptural study, yoga methods, rituals, and other practices to awaken the spiritual heart. Each morning participants will gather to practice these techniques in a traditionally prescribed format. Silence is observed until brunch each day; afternoons include study of yoga philosophy and practice of asana; evenings include mantra and other devotional themes. Whether you are a beginning student or a long-time practitioner, this is a wonderful opportunity to go deep in focused practices.
