From August 30 to September 6, 2020 WITH RAMANUJA ACHARYA DAS (GINO SANSONE)​​​​​​​
The seminar will be in Italian and translated into English.
"If the doors of perception were cleared, everything would seem to man as it really is, infinite." (William Blake)
 The meaning and purpose of this intensive is to deepen and experience the relationship between the structure of the Universe - macrocosm - and the structure of Man - microcosm - through the structure of the Yoga practice.
In this first seminar, the bases for the work you want to share and do together will be established. Starting from the Samkhya cosmogony and developing the process that leads to the manifestation of the phenomenal world and the formation of the human structure, we interact with the structure of Yoga, which in its simple and complex system develops practices that, on the one hand, harmonize us with the cosmic structure and, on the other hand, they take us further, adjusting the individual's will to the universal will. 
This path will summarize Yoga, Vedanta and Tantra, as explained in the classic texts and in the Yoga Synthesis highlighted by Sri Krishna (Bhagavad-Ghita) and developed until today by Masters Sri Aurobindo and Swami Shivananda. 
What is the relationship between the chakras and the planets, between the marma points, the constellations and the body organs, between the elementary elements, the senses of perception and the stars in the practice of Yoga?
Knowing the structure of the cosmic manifestation through the tools of the ancient Science of Yoga is a first step towards the Self, towards Enlightenment, the awakening and the realization of the Self, of the Self in relation to all beings and all. 'Being universal that resides in our own heart. "Sarvasya cãham hrdi sannivistah" "The Lord, is in everyone's heart".​​​​​​​
