Its so exciting when we get to experience master teachers here in our own frozen and remote northern home! I personally thrive on the chance to engage in learning from amazing human beings, and would love to see this continuing to happen in Fairbanks. So if you're at all interested, please come join us! These lectures promise to be as rewarding for the student of philosophy or the student of life as for the yogi.

March 19- 7:30-9pm- I. Defining Yoga. Come and learn what it means to experience ‘Yoga’ as the liberated state of Being, how this state is accessible to us in every moment, and how we may attune to it.
“Yoga is the state experienced when the cyclical, anxious activity of the mind (suddenly) dissolves.” –Yogasūtra I.2.
March 20- 7:30-9pm Samskāras: Identifying Our Unconscious Mental Habits (citta-vritti) that Trigger Cycles of Suffering
Christopher will guide us toward identifying and eliminating the source of all self-created suffering–the subconscious ‘impressions’ which unconsciously perpetuate the anxious ‘mind cycle’ (chitta-vritti), that obscures the Self within and causes us to unconsciously grasp for happiness in the materialistic world of impermanence. Visit Christopher Tompkins on Youtube.
