The Practice of Yoga in a Christian Context: Putting on the Mind of Christ

Joseph Mitchell


Christian mystics have always understood the inner meaning of the Gospel. They realized it is a valuable map of the interior world and a remarkable description of the spiritual journey.

This workshop will explore the development of consciousness from a Christian perspective.  It is designed to help participants learn the basic symbol system and mystical tradition within Christianity in order to better teach and practice Yoga in a Christian context. Drawing on the contemplative tradition, it will focus on the inner dimension of Jesus’ teachings and a practical application of the timeless truths within the Christian revelation. St. Paul described this as “putting on the mind of Christ.” Jesus called it “discovering the Kingdom of Heaven within.”
