Yoga Meets Psyche: Transforming Body, Mind, & Soul Through Yoga and Depth Psychology
The symbols of the self arise in the depths of the body ~ C.G. Jung
C.G. Jung’s psychology of the unconscious and many yogic and tantric traditions share a similar underlying philosophy that the Self embraces the body as well as the psyche. Join leading instructors from across disciplines as we explore the rich and dynamic intersections between yoga and depth psychology. In this intensive 7-day immersion, participants will examine in depth:
Embodying Principles of Jungian Psychology
Jung’s Encounter with Yoga
Psychodynamics and the Student-Teacher Relationship
Trauma and the Body
Alchemy, Yoga, and Tantra
Depth Psychology and Yogic Texts (Yoga Sutras, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita)
Yoga and the Subtle Body
Depth Psychology as a Spiritual Path
Embodied Active Imagination
Daily Yoga, Movement, and Meditation Practices
This immersion is designed for yoga teachers and practitioners who wish to deepen their current knowledge base and expand their experiential understanding of yoga and meditation in dialogue with the fields of depth psychology and somatic studies. This immersion will additionally be of special interest to therapists and healers looking to enhance their work through integrating yoga and depth psychological principles in their life and practice. Yoga practitioners of all levels are welcome. Six months prior yoga experience is recommended but not necessary.
Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion following the Immersion
