Yoga Darshana: Celebrating the Wisdom of the Yogic Tradition

In this two-month series we will dive deep into the wisdom of the Indian philosophical and devotional traditions. Accompanied by accomplished kirtan artist Shemaia Skywater and other beloved companions on the yogic path, we will chant, contemplate, meditate, practice applying tantric teachings in our daily lives, and learn about the divine qualities embodied by Ganesha and the Goddess. Join us for an evening, or come for the whole series!

Every Tuesday evening from Feb. 7th – March 27th, 7:15-845 PM. Offered by Inner Freedom Yoga at the Community Yoga Center, 890 G Street, Arcata, CA.
