Topics
The lectures will begin an investigation into the Yogic and Western views of the nervous system. According to the earliest references of Yoga in the Upanishads, the purpose of yoga is to steady the sense organs, and move our awareness inwards towards Self-knowledge, rather than towards the ever enticing and changing objects of the world. In these lectures we will have an overview of the Nadis, the different types of groups of nerves according to Yogis, and their corollary systems according to Western medicine. These two complementary systems are very important for maintaining health, homeostasis, our ability to listen and communicate well with others, and find a sense of peace within our own nervous system. The lectures lead toward an understanding of how some of the most inner benefits of asanas, pranayama and chanting are actually activating our nervous system in very interesting ways.
