Yoga and Psychotherapy

Teachings of Yoga psychology (Upanishads, Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Yoga Vashista, Tantra) recognise that Spirit, God, Universal Consciousness or whatever you call the unnamable, manifests itself as everything that exists, including ourselves. All of our struggles, fears, defensiveness, depression, anxiety and so on come from not recognizing this in our moment-by-moment experience. Anything short of this recognition leaves us mired in distress.

Yoga psychology gives us a philosophical foundation, but not necessarily the means to work with people individually as they struggle with their imagined limitations. Blending Western psychology and Yoga psychology helps the client to discover living in kindness to themself and others, moment by moment, revering each experience as revealing the way into an integrated expression of the truth of what is.

During the Hungarian events, we will explore how an integration of spiritual practices, psychotherapy, yoga, and using psychedelics in an optimal setting can lead to lasting and profound changes in our personality structure and our sense of well being.
