Advancing in Yoga Philosophy

Gary was introduced to Eastern philosophy in college when he discovered the writings of Alan Watts which led to studies in Zen and Zen-inspired poetry. Gary found yoga in 2000 as a way to recover from back trauma and has been studying and practicing yoga since that time. Gary has a Certificate of Yoga Philosophy from the California Institute of Integral Studies. He has studied yoga at Esalen Institute, Big Sur California, Parmarth Niketan Ashram, Rishikesh, India and Satchidananda Ashram-Yogaville, Virginia. Gary has photographed many spiritual sites and experiences in his travels throughout Asia. After four years of study and writing, he recently published his first book entitled: “The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali- Illuminations Through Image, Commentary and Design.” The book provides a new and inviting approach to studying and living the Yoga Sutras by using imagery, poetry and quotation to illuminate the heart of the Sutras.

Claudia Anfuso

Claudia Anfuso

Jyotish - Vedic Astrology and You

Claudia Anfuso is a student and practitioner of Jyotiṣa (Vedic astrology) and Indian Palmistry. She has been deeply involved in the world of yoga, meditation, tantra, and the Vedic sciences for the past few decades. In 2006 she took her first of many courses with world renowned Jyotiṣa master Hart deFouw. That course ignited a life-long passion for patterns of the sky and human hand and their encoding of both character and destiny patterns. The study of the energies of time and space contribute every day to her expansion as a human being. It is a path for self-cultivation and self-discovery, whose fruit is the shining light of empathy and compassion. Furthermore, one of the joys of her life is to share this knowledge with others. There is no power greater than the knowledge of ourselves and the commonality of sentient beings. She offers consultations in these ancient esoteric sciences of astrology and hand analysis, combined with a deep vision and experience of life and its infinite labyrinth. She also delights in sharing what she has had the pleasure and fortune to learn through workshops, individual tutoring, and group classes.
