In this third module, we will explore the rich variety of contemplative practices described in Patañjali’s Yoga Sūtras. As a group, these meditative techniques are referred to as the Citta Parikarma Sadhana. This term encompasses a wide range of inward-minded practices all of which hold the power to calm the mind and clarify consciousness. Some of these practices concern the Yoga of right relationship – they relate to the cultivation of concentration in ways that can help us to heal and grow through healthy relationships, either with other people, with a Guru or mentor, with a chosen deity, or perhaps even with our own heart, breath, and higher mind. Together, these practices offer a most essential and life-giving medicine, a solution to be applied in the face of roadblocks, stress, or any form of inner agitation. The discussion of these perennial “roadblocks” or obstacles, examining how they affect our mind, path, and heart, will be taught flexibly in both module three and four. During this intensive, we will also go through the four stages of meditative training, a topic which will be continued in the fourth module.
