Origins & Principles
Yoga teaches us the 2 ultimate and completely distinct realities of our being – spirit and nature which we call Shiva and Shakti. Shiva describes the eternal, pure, non-changing unlimited being on which the light of consciousness rides. Shakti means power, potency and energy which gives rise to the manifested world of light, energy and matter. The cosmic dance between the two gives rise to our totality and oneness of being. This lecture will outline the basic tents of Sankhya, which means to number. Sankhya is one of the traditional darshanas or philosophy/viewpoint of ancient India that discusses the origin and nature of the universe. This course is taught be Daren Friesen, teacher and owner/director of Moksha.
