London Study Retreats:
Yoga Psychology – The Way to Radiant Mental Health

8 – 12 July, 2017

Arrival: 7pm, 7 July | Departure: 3.30pm, 12 July

Call to Register

The science of Raja Yoga explains the subtle functioning of the mind: its different levels, how habits are formed, how pain is generated and how one can free oneself from mental suffering. It teaches us how to focus the mind and realise our true nature which is beyond mental conditioning.

It makes us aware that our true self is pure bliss and absolute peace. It gives a wonderful message of hope and encouragement and inspires us to rise beyond the habitual states of depression, excitement and fear and find the centre within where we are not shaken by the changes that challenge us in our lives.

Course textbook: Raja Yoga Sutras

“There is something beyond the mind and that is the Self, consciousness. Psychoanalysis should be combined with Raja Yoga. We must not only have a thorough knowledge of the Western science of psychology, but also combine it with Raja Yoga.”
– Swami Sivananda
