Along this great path of Self discovery, many methods were devised. A project of this magnitude requires on going investigation and revision. The scope of yoga practice is very large and every modality within- the-entire-creation has the potential to unlock our deepest identity. If it uplifts the spirit in a sustainable way, it’s fair game.
The early sages explored the use of asana, diet, pranayama, meditation, ritual, scriptural study and interestingly enough symbolic art as a means of Self exploration. While many of these techniques are commonly recognized and even practiced in our western community, some may be quite foreign.
