The Radiance of Being The Body as the Temple

Sometimes, being human is so full of wonder and awe. And sometimes—maybe a lot of the time—it isn’t. Diverse spiritual traditions point toward the many ways we can nurture the wonder of being human. The Upanishads, the sacred texts of yoga, and the Christian sacred texts both refer to the body as a temple. In this program, explore the connections between these ancient wisdom traditions—and experience practices from each—to discover the embodied radiance of the human experience.

Through gentle yoga and profound meditation, you

  • Embrace your body as a temple
  • Experience your fullest aliveness
  • Settle into the sacredness of your own self
  • Explore Upanishadic and Christian mystical practices.
