Modern Yoga and Meditation for the Hero’s Journey
Anyone who practices a scientific technique of God-contact is a yogi… Paramahansa Yogananda

The Modern Hero’s Journey begins when we come into this world, tiny, helpless and so keenly aware of the truth of the Universe, yet the limitations have already begun.  Knowledge of the ages present within this undeveloped human form; Spirit, once as expansive as the Universe itself, now stuffed into this tiny body and mind, we cry out as the slap of reality hits us square on the bottom.  Our first breath in this world of duality begins our trek, the Soul Journey to Consciousness or Hero’s Journey.

The human formative years, now dominated by schoolyard bullies in the form of family, television, media, social marketing, values, mores and more created by decades of misguided representation of the truth begin to be pushed upon the infinite soul that animates the body.  As we test universal truths, we are more often than not met with high levels of resistance all around and eventually the “world” we have found ourselves in begins to dominate our Spirit.  We begin to forget.

A yogi engages himself in a definite, step-by-step procedure by which the body and mind are disciplined, and the soul liberated. Paramahansa Yogananda

Life moves on and the education continues until one day… Something cries out from deep within the layers upon layers of “protective garb” we have put on; the literal masks that cover the essence of what we really are, adopted to survive in this modern experience.  This is the call to action as Spirit guides us once more.  Likely, this comes at some point in the human experience of tremendous pain, suffering, loss, drama, trauma or death contemplation.  Regardless, this is the chance to break free and know thyself again.

You are the Infinite One, Love everlasting beyond form, the One who has waited patiently for this moment to come.  This is the stage of the Hero’s Journey where all comes into question and the answers you have been questing for will come.  It is time to find the stillness within the din of our modern world; to quiet the mind and listen for the whisper of your soul.  What is the meaning of life?

Yoga and Meditation provide an access point and the breath is your guide.  Yoga, meaning union, is far more than yoga positions or yoga asanas, rather it is an ancient system of self-realization. Scientific in nature, it is a powerful tool for the modern yogi on the Hero’s Journey to explore the inner depths of the human experience and spirituality… and it begins Now.
