Identity, Ego and the Subtle Body in Early Yoga - Preview

The role of the ego is always important in Yoga tradition, but the concept undergoes a process of understanding and development in historical sources. Here you will take a look at early Sankhya-Yoga's formulation of ahamkara, translated as "doing 'I'". Begin to develop a foundation for later explorations in Vedanta and Tantra influenced schools, and other traditions in which ego is a principal issue. Reflect and absorb with this in depth discussion. Props Needed: A blanket or a bolster to sit on.
