The Mundaka Upanishad belongs to the Atharva Veda and has three chapters, each of which has two sections. The name is derived from the root ‘mund’ (to shave) as he that comprehends the teaching of the Upanishad is liberated from error and ignorance. The Upanishad clearly states the distinction between the higher knowledge of the Supreme Brahman and the lower knowledge of the empirical world. The Mandukya Upanishad belongs to the Atharva Veda and is an exposition of the principle of Aum as consisting of three elements, a, u, m which may be used to experience the soul itself. It contains twelve verses that delineate four levels of consciousness: walking, dreaming, deep sleep, and a fourth mystical state of being one with the soul.

This restorative sound and yoga workshop helps to deepen the awareness on the body's cellular level. As the sound of the crystal bowls and Marian's voice relax and bring you intoa state of tranquility, hatha asanas allow you to feel connected to your beautiful body and go into a place of softness where the mind is quieted and peace is revealed.
Desires and their counterparts, aversions and fears, are obstacles for many on the path of yoga. Understanding these tendencies from a yogic perspective can help as one travels the path of life.
