Satsang with Dr. Benjamin Major and Joanna Bertzeletos of Yoga Nature Sheffield, including vegan dinner, talk and Kirtan 💖
In this next Satsang we will be exploring the Vijñāna Bhairava Tantra or ‘Scripture of the Wisdom-Bhairava’ which is a unique and beautiful text from the Trika lineage of Kashmir Śaivism which can be dated to around 850CE. The text contains over a hundred beautiful practices that invite the cultivation of contemplation and awareness. These are relatively simple and accessible methods for becoming perfectly centred in the absolute fullness and stillness of awareness, and for realising our oneness with the Divine.
In this Satsang I will briefly present the historical background and context ...of this text and the lineage from which it derives. We will also briefly explore some new research that opens up the possibility, speculative as it may be, that this scripture may have been originally composed by a female guru. Following this historical and philosophical introduction we then go on to explore some of the practices given in this extraordinary text. Please note however, there is a focus on theory here, if you want to approach the Vijñāna Bhairava in a more experiential and practical way I would advise also booking on to our mini-workshop on Sunday 17 June: facebook.com/events/301700410360520/
As usual the Satsang begins at 6pm with a delicious meal that we share together. The talk itself will begin shortly after 7pm. After the talk we will also share some Kirtan together. This is followed by cake and tea!
This event is free. Numbers are strictly limited as the event takes place in our house, so please book your place early. You can contact Ben directly on Facebook or at [email protected]
