Swatantrya: The Blossoming of Freedom
Hatha Yoga is rooted in a tantric philosophy that recognizes and honors the characteristics that make us individual and unique, and does not seek to erase or ‘transcend’ them, but rather to explore and expand the energy behind them. ‘Freedom’ lies in this expansion, in which we are most fully ourselves, instead of trying to be something other than our own selves. At the heart of this inspiration is what the tantric philosophers called ‘Spanda.’
The talk will explore fundamental ideas of ‘contraction/mala,’ expansion/swatantrya, and Spanda by which tantric philosophy — from the hatha yogis onward — transformed our understanding of yoga philosophy and practice, and most of all, our selves.
