The Online Art of Sāṃkhya Philosophy Module Two Framework

The online Art of Sāṃkhya Philosphy – Module One reflects the teachings of TKV Desikachar and his father and teacher T Krishnamacharya as taught to Paul Harvey over 25 years through:

  • Guidance in emphasising a personal reflective study to support your life.
  • Understanding the principles that inspire and inform Sāṃkhya teachings.
  • An overview of primary Sāṃkhya concepts around spirit and mind.
  • Familiarisation with basic Sāṃkhya terms and reflective techniques.
  • Deepening the philosophical aspects of our personal practice with Sāṃkhya.

To present a view of Sāṃkhya through which students can support and develop their own practice and deepen their appreciation of the possibilities for the Sāṃkhya Kārikā in their lives. They are offered with respect for the vital source from which these teachings originated and their place in our age and culture.

“Sāṃkhya postulates what appears
and what causes it to appear.”

– TKV Desikachar on Sāṃkhya and Yoga

The Online Art of Sāṃkhya Philosophy Module Two Professional

Even though the Sāṃkhya teachings developed in the Art of Sāṃkhya Philosophy Modular Courses can enhance any Yoga Teachers professional skills in the fields of Yoga Psychology and Yoga Therapeutic Healthcare, there is no requirement to teach or to intend to teach Yoga. This is not the role of the course.

The role of this Course is not to train students as Yoga teachers although the Art of Sāṃkhya Philosophy Course will obviously enhance any Yoga teacher’s skills in the area of Yoga Psychology and Yoga Therapeutic Healthcare. They are offered with respect for the vital source from which these Yoga teachings originated and their place in our age and culture.

In fact, not everybody wants to or actually needs to become a Yoga teacher to further their practice and study. Here the priorities are towards personal development and thus questions relating to our personal practice and study are the priorities. These Courses reflect this viewpoint.

“Abhyāsa, when performed with reverence, without interruption, over a long period of time, will result in a healthy body, acute senses and extraordinary alertness.”
– T Krishnamacharya

The aim is that we are all here in this course as students and it offers an opportunity for all teachers to step back from their teaching role and re-enhance their personal study and practice path.

  • Exploring key concepts that surround this teaching.
  • How the Sāṃkhya Kārikā can link to personal practice goals.
  • What are the key verses.
  • In depth exploration of the key verses of the Sāṃkhya Kārikā.
  • Linking each verse to the meditative path in Yoga.
