The Secret Heart

In the yogic context, the concept of the heart carries many beautiful connotations.

The Heart (Sanskrit hṛdaya and similar terms) is the the most sublime, powerful, affirming, loving, divine presence within you. So, the Heart refers to the finest essence of your being.

The Heart also refers to the encompassing community that is grounded in and oriented toward the divine Presence within all beings

You may not always experience the true Heart, or you may not always know how to express it, for it is often hidden. In yogic terms, it is guha-hṛdaya, the “Secret Heart.”

Anusara Yoga is oriented toward aligning with that Secret Heart that pulsates within you.

When referring to yogic texts, the word “heart,” hṛdaya, also refers to the most refined and precise set of yogic teachings about this divine power and presence with each of us. One such textual epitomes of yoga philosophy is called  the “Heart of Recogjtion” (Pratyabhijṇā-hṛdaya), from the eleventh century, which presents the process by which we come to know the true Heart.

In this retreat, we will study, discuss, contemplate, integrate, and apply the teachings of the “Heart of Recognition” (Pratyabhijñā-hṛdaya) as we seek to know, understand, and embody that Secret Heart. Do join us!
