The powerful and profound practice of yoga has contributed a great deal to our contemporary ideas of fitness, health, and wellbeing. More and more people all over the globe are joining the collective movement, and today’s era of globalization has led to unparalleled intercultural exchange. This evolutionary trend creates some ideal conditions for yogis with the goals to gain wisdom, uplift their inner selves, and explore the world. But who are they?
I have been training with Mahasiddha Tantra Yoga studio for one year. During the yoga course of this year I have been having exponential spiritual awakenings. This January I attended the New Years silent retreat for more advanced students who already have some kind of established practice.
My spiritual journey started about a year ago with a series of traumatic and unexpected events: first, I had just officially (and reluctantly) finalized a divorce after seven years of marriage, followed almost sequentially by an internal power struggle at my global management consulting firm (which, after several months of fighting, I lost and was “gracefully” requested to leave of my own volition…as if I had a choice).
During 2017, I left my job, sold my, house, separated from my husband, and set off backpacking the world in search of finding myself. Through my travels in Europe, I learned so much but did not connect deeply with myself.
