Magic & Ordinariness: Modern Day Yoga Wisdom for Better Connections

Start mastering yourself and the foundations of conscious connection using practical wisdom derived from the ancient 8 fold path of yoga. Develop a new perspective based on universal principles and learn how to use each instance of relating as a catalyst that leads to real freedom:
• Reduce the suffering potential that is innate in human connections
• Understand the roots of inevitable hurts and misunderstandings and utilise them for the benefit of all
• Learn to listen well and understand others more deeply
• Communicate clearly, responsibly and effectively so others can hear what you really mean • Express authentically from a place of open-heartedness
• Become more intentional – live from desire instead of fear
• Tune in to your inner wisdom and vitality and step into creative flow
• Be naturally healthy, aware, whole and know emotional, mental and physical harmony

I am young and I am old all at once. Driving my small, sporty, old car through single track country lanes, the sunshine pours over my legs, hands and chest through the glass. I feel my eyeballs get hot, my tongue begins to feel thick,......
