Day 4: Self-Study

60 min - Talk


At the heart of any spiritual practice is svadhyaya or self-study. We begin in meditation to begin to quiet the chatter of the mind and remind ourselves that our existence is on purpose. Ravi then shares a talk on connecting to our higher, subtler levels through attention, intention, sincerity and svadhyaya or self-study. We conclude today's session with an invitation for self-reflection.

There is no coincidence, I believe, in life. When Ravi mentioned the example of meeting the person who will become your life partner, I thought of how I met my husband. I was going to attend the University of Toronto (a very small town girl), and found myself in downtown Toronto. That first afternoon I walked down to the Newman Centre (a centre for Catholic students) and met my future husband. We did not start going out then - but eventually did and have been married for 33 years (and 4 kids!).
Awareness requires that we always test our preconceived notions and ideas. Much enjoyed this talk. Thank you.
What an amazing talk...what stood out for me is "I am both the instrument of transformation and also the object that needs to be transformed".  That and consciousness and conscience cannot be separated, attention, intention and sincerity. I am going to dive into the homework, thank you for such a brilliant lecture !!
