Sangha Circle–Raja Yoga
Join Reverend Paraman Barsel for an hour of Raja Yoga Sangha!
We will discuss one of the lesser known root meanings of the word “Yoga” — remedy — and how the Patanjali Yoga Sutras provide a holistic approach for healing all suffering in life. We will explore how Raja Yoga is, in reality, the totality of Integral Yoga rather than just one branch.
Looking forward to sharing an hour of community and connection!
