Meditation is a state of being, so when we PRACTICE meditation in this School of Yoga, we practice all previous limbs of yoga, plus

๐Ÿ‘‰ Pratyahara: the 5th Limb of Yoga This involves shifting the flow of our awareness from the external to the internal, away from sensory objects towards the internal landscape.

The remaining three guide you though three stages of concentrative intensity:

๐Ÿ‘‰ Dharana: the 6th Limb of Yoga
This is the binding of your mind to one place, idea or object; it is concentration without distraction.

๐Ÿ‘‰ Dhyana: the 7th Limb of Yoga
This is the Meditative state of being; an uninterrupted flow of concentration where one can perceive their true nature

๐Ÿ‘‰ Samadhi: the 8th Limb of Yoga
This is the state of Meditative absorption, where one is absorbed into the Universe; there is no separation.

We may get so caught up in our spirituality that we forget about our humanity.

As humans, our wellbeing is bound; when one is not okay, everyone is not okay.

We must do the work to understand our identities in this world and how they affect others, so that we can minimize the harm we cause others and therefore the harm that we cause ourselves.
