The Zodiac is embodied in a system of symbols which enable us to understand the behaviour of forces within a closed field – our own body, our environment, the world, the cosmos.

The ability to interpret these symbols properly requires us to go back to a study of the significances offered by the people who first used the symbols and who understood their meaning.zodiac-EH

In their day, the fields of philosophy and physical science were not separate as they are today. They were considered as aspects of the total truth and viewed as a ‘linked’ study. Thus the best alchemists of the 17th Century were not deluded quacks who used astrological terms in the loose uninformed manner of modern-day newspaper predictionists. To the alchemists, the 7 planets, the transmutation of metals, were precise functions and processes of a universal system.

7 planetsThis workshop is to offer the attendees a working interpretation of the 7 planetary spirits(as they were called in their day), and how to interpret and apply them in life and in meditation.

Saturn is a contractive force which makes being, Jupiter is expansive which loosens and aims for freedom, the Moon is phasic like the forces in the lower mind of the average person, and so on.

To understand these, and the other forces, we begin to understand ourselves and to take control of the forces of our being in meditation and in life. Our mind becomes clearer and settles with its content. Our individual spirit is released into samadhic contemplation with its Source. Our body comes into a greater harmonic relation with its environment, with itself and with others.

Yoga is the method and practice leading to the conscious union of the individual human being with the ultimate Source and origin of being.

Workshops 2016 Melbourne Yoga Meditation Centre

Workshops – Understanding Yoga and The Yogi

Melbourne Yoga and Meditation Centre >> offers the more dedicated student an ongoing meditation and study program and regular workshops to introduce these studies. Spiritual insights unfold on an accurate rationale. The writers of the original teachings understand this rationale, and it is to these writers and yogis which we refer in our meditations and studies.  Some of the deeper teachings and references are found here on our Blog. But it is suggested that the Workshops are a useful beginning if you would like personal guidance, and the ability to ask questions relevant to your individual direction.

Each Workshop introduces an accent on the following month of daily Practices and Meditations in our studio. The workshop gives an insight into the topic and the practical application of its technique in individual development, in the world.

Yoga is no mere exercise routine for just keeping fit and relaxing. Yoga has a development procedure starting with physical disciplines, passing through mental and psychological disciplines, opening to individual talent development, Self-understanding and Spiritual Insight. Through Samadhic Contemplation, the Reflexive Self-consciousness we seek, all truly valuable possibilites arise.

Melbourne Yoga and Meditation Centre offers teachings in every phase of Yogic development.
