The Wisdom of Yoga Vol. 1 (DVD) | Price: $35.00
History & Overview of Yoga: This discussion outlines the big picture of yoga history and provides a framework to understand where any particular system of yoga, from ancient to modern, fits in.
The Secret Teachings of the Upanishads: In this session, Carlos provides a method to systematize and understand these sprawling and difficult texts, thus laying the groundwork to understand Vedanta, meditation and the experience of the Self.
The Wisdom of Yoga Vol. 2 (DVD) | Price: $35.00
The Yogas of Action, Knowledge and Devotion - Bhagavad Gita: This talk explores the three types of yoga described in the India’s most beloved sacred text, the Bhagavad Gita. Carlos shows how revolutionary this text was because it demystified yoga and brought its formerly secret teachings -- that had been reserved for male, renunciates of the highest caste -- to the masses.
The Bhakti Sutras: Joyous Exhultation of the Divine: In response to the Gita, a wave of devotional (Bhakti) yoga swept India from the 5th through the 15th centuries CE. Carlos tells traditional stories of the yoga saints of this era and demonstrates the Bhakti practice of kirtan, devotional chanting.
The Wisdom of Yoga Vol. 3 (DVD) | Price: $35.00
Patanjali's Classical Yoga: Blueprint for Transformation
Patanjali's Classical Yoga: Blueprint for Transformation. By looking directly at Patanjali’s words, Carlos shows how the author’s intent has often been misunderstood. While the text outlines the eight-limbed path of ashtanga yoga, to Patanjali, the most important limb was the final one, Samadhi, timeless absorption in the Absolute.
The Wisdom of Yoga Vol. 4 (DVD) | Price: $35.00
Vedanta: Seeing the Oneness of Being Beyond Illusions
Vedanta: Seeing the Oneness of Being Beyond Illusions: Linking Vedanta to the earlier Upanishads, Carlos provides an historical context to understand this often misunderstood philosophical system. He shows how to put Vedanta into practice by understanding your relationship to the Infinite.
The Wisdom of Yoga Vol. 5 (DVD) | Price: $35.00
Tantra: The Wheel of Divine Energy & Kashmir Shavism
Tantra: The Wheel of Divine Energy. One of Carlos’s primary goals in this talk is to recover the word Tantra, so often misappropriated. He shows how Tantra is, in reality, a sublime life-affirming philosophy, entirely relevant to the modern world. He discusses such topics as the rise of the feminine and how emotions can be a tool to promote understanding and spiritual growth.
Kashmir Shavism: Carlos explores this approach, which is arguably the most elegant representation of Tantra ever developed. Its methods for finding the divine in everyday life are both uplifting and inspiring. Developed by a lineage of householders, that is, people living in the world with jobs and families, Kashmir Shavism is particularly relevant to people today.
The Wisdom of Yoga Vol. 6 (DVD) | Price: $35.00
Kundalini Yoga: Charting the Inner Landscape; Hatha Yoga and the Natha Traditions - Spiritual & Physical Alchemy.
Kundalini Yoga: Charting the Inner Landscape: What is Kundalini? What are the Chakras? What happens when the Kundalini rises? In this discussion, Carlos answers these questions and differentiates traditional teachings from New Age interpretations.
Hatha Yoga and the Natha Traditions - Spiritual & Physical Alchemy: Carlos outlines how Hatha Yoga developed as a separate system within a Tantric milieu. Analogous to the efforts of the alchemists to turn base metals into gold, adepts developed methods that allowed practitioners via “internal alchemy” to turn mortal flesh into the “diamond body.”
