Samavesha 2022

The recordings are almost ready!

UPDATE ~ FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2022

For Samavesha Participants
The Samavesha Planning Committee received a very generous offer from Will Doran (Certified teacher in the USA), who has volunteered to do some light editing to the Samavesha videos. Initially, we had decided to deliver the unedited material. However, we would like to bring you the best possible quality.

We will send you the links of the classes you purchased very soon. Thank you for your patience!

Good news! The recordings will be available for sale on our online store by mid-January.

Connect with Our Global Kula of the Heart

 

Samavesha is always an inspiring and transformative event. Enjoy steeping in the teachings that passionately speak to your heart. As we practice together from the comfort of our homes, we remember the power of our global connection to the Great Heart.

From around the world, we affirm the Divine’s flow in our lives. Marinate in our theme – daya-bhutesa – generous compassion for all beings. We recognize that we are not alone in our desire. Attend Samavesha 2022 to

  • restore your connection and strength
  • recommit to the work you are called to do
  • cultivate generous compassion.

Anusara Yoga world-class teachers enrich our experience by calling us into deeper connection with

  • sat (being)
  • cit (consciousness)
  • ananda (joy).

Your live, online yoga retreat is a delightful weekend schedule of skillfully crafted practices including

  • asana
  • meditation and inquiry
  • music / sound immersion
  • philosophy.
 

Our Theme for Samavesha 2022

daya-bhutesu

daya = generous compassion

bhutesu = for all living being

The heart qualities of generous compassion grow out of our practice. They require intentional effort which may take us into deeper levels of Divine experience.

Samavesha offers a unique opportunity to explore what this theme – generous compassion for all living beings – means to you.
