In the West, "the main thing has been to just meditate and it will all be solved. That is a bunch of b.s., as far as I’m concerned. Meditation is essential, but only after learning something."
Both the Buddhist tradition and Vedic philosophy offer a wide variety of teachings about mind management, working with emotions, and applying the insights gleaned from meditation into daily life.
That's the reason why we - at Tulsa Yoga Meditation Center - as well as other traditional yoga studios offer workshops and retreats. Information can be transformed into wisdom. We try to help women and men take their yoga and meditation "off the mat or cushion" and into daily life.
