Enlightenment and The Yoga of the Three Energies

jamesEnlightenment is freedom from dependence on objects, especially emotional states of mind that hinder our ability to accomplish our goals. The ancient Science of Energy Management is a sophisticated set of simple principles that allow anyone to eliminate the thoughts and emotions that inhibit our ability to live creatively and to cultivate the energies that ensure success in any endeavor. The three universal energies that each of us experiences throughout the day are called ‘gunas,’ a Sanskrit word that means qualities. The technique that gives us control of them is called Triguna Vibhava Yoga. This Yoga originated in India several thousand years ago and is practiced, consciously or unconsciously, throughout the world today. Successful people in every field have to varying degrees mastered some aspect of this science. This seminar reveals the basic principles of the Yoga of the gunas and how to use them to transform your life and attain success.
