The Flowering of Freedom Study Group 2014

Click here to view Sessions 13-24 from the 2013 year of the Flowering of Freedom Study Group.

In this monthly study group, Richard Miller breathes life into the ancient wisdom teachings that inform and support our understanding of how to live an enlightened life in daily circumstances. These are the teachings of nondual awareness and iRest Yoga Nidra which form exquisite guidelines to support in-depth self-inquiry in the here and now, with our self, and in our relationships.

Initial sessions examine the teachings of Sañkhya, which underlie Patañjali's Yoga Sutras. Later, we will turn into an in-depth exploration of Patañjali's 196 Yoga Sutras. Each sutra will be translated from its original Sanskrit, followed by a free rendering and intimate discussion, examining Patañjali’s ancient teachings in the light of our actual lived experience. Once we’ve covered Patañjali, the course will delve into the teachings of Advaita, Kashmir Shaivism, and Buddhism, through selected readings.

Each month's download will include PDFs of the course handouts and MP3s of the audio files. We hope you enjoy this special offering from Richard Miller!
