Who Are You? This is the first of life’s big questions. Nothing is more important and more relevant than to know who you are.

The theme of our first Life Enhancement workshop in 2020 will be New Year resolutions and how they are usually about wanting to become a better “me”. This, of course, leads to a conversation about our having two natures – a higher nature and a lower nature or Sat-svabhāva and asat-svabhāva in Sanskrit. Our real happiness and true spiritual love, are experienced when I am living in harmony with my higher nature or Sat-svabhāva. My lower nature arises from my body and mind and

The ideal of perfect love is something everyone hopes for, but is it even possible? The answer is yes. But not within a temporary and imperfect world. This desire is rooted in our eternal and spiritual nature and can only be experienced in that which is eternal, spiritual, and perfect.
Within this world, we enter into relationships with others, and we often hope that they will turn out to be the perfect person to love. To place such an expectation upon others is unfair to ourselves and others.
Stress is the body’s way of responding to demand or pressures. It can be caused by both good and bad experiences. In many cases stress is a healthy reaction. It helps us cope with life’s challenges. However too much stress, or prolonged stress can affect our physical and mental health. Taking steps to cope with situations we find stressful is important so we can function and live productive lives.
At these ‘Life-Enhancement Evenings’, we will be exploring ways to improve our

What do you think of when you hear the word ‘freedom’?
Many people think of it as being free to act as you please, no inhibitions, nothing holding you up or getting in your way.
The dictionary generally gives two main definitions of freedom. One is the state of not being imprisoned or enslaved. The second is the power or the right to act, speak or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint.
But this definition ignores the reality of the law of karma – that for every action there

In this workshop we explore the Vedic perspective on death, dying and bereavement. In order to really understand death and dying, we need to embrace the foundational truth that I am a spiritual identity and I exist apart from my material body. This creates a whole new way to consider the meaning of death and who or what dies. I hope you can join us for this interesting exploration.
At these ‘Life-Enhancement Evenings’, we will be discovering ways to improve our lives from the wisdom
