Day 3: Shraddha - Faith & Trust

55 min - Talk


We shape our lives through our thoughts, our actions, and where we place our faith. Shraddha refers to “that which is placed in the heart”, our beliefs, our core values which guide us through everything we do. The Bhagavad Gita teaches that as we grow and live life, Shraddha can change as we change, and we ultimately come to place our faith in our selves, our practice, and our relationship with the Divine. In Day 3, we explore turning our practice upside-down to experience familiar poses with a different perspective, cultivate trust, and surrender to what life has to offer. We close in meditation with Vajrapradama mudra, the mudra of Unshakable Trust, and contemplate the role of Shraddha in our lives through several journaling prompts.

In this video, Jasmine references the Eknath Easwaran version of The Bhagavad Gita.

Loving this journey. Turning our perspective upside down... opening to new ways of seeing, of believing. Love.
The asana practice part of this episode was so invigorating . Getting upside down really does change one’s perspective both literally and figuratively! Loved the use of the wall for the restorative twists at the end. As for the journal prompts and suggestions at the end - I totally got goosebumps! Earlier today was my very first time pulling a tarot card (I’m late to the party)…I pulled the Wheel of Fortune! Coincidence ? I think not! ✨✨✨✨✨
Loving this journey with you.
