They cover some of the primary world literature on the topic. Previously, they’ve invited academics to speak on the texts, but this session have invited awake people. Andrew Hewson had spoken to a prior class and suggested me for the Yoga Sutra. He also introduces me.
I review the structure, main points, and key places where the text is often misunderstood.

On YouTube
I often quote from the Yoga Sutra and have been considering compiling an illustrated version, so I have a spreadsheet with several translations. I compiled my version for the class.
Yoga Sutra of Patanjali – draft (pdf)
Main Points (pdf)
The talk was followed by an extended Q&A with diverse questions. That’s now posted here.

On YouTube
We clarified the distinction between belief and experience and talked more to the “feminine” or heart side of spiritual unfolding. While we touched on the unfolding of our experiences, Andrew reminded that the point was not the content of experience but the deeper reality. Andrew also brought out a new style of awakening he’s seen that is an excellent sign, not possible unless the purity of the world has risen. As usual, it was a wide-ranging chat with many points arising.
