About the Workshop:
Ancient Vedic texts (Taittiriya Upanishad, 6th century BC) state that there are five veils (koshas or bodies) wrapped around your soul, starting from the most subtle, blissful veil and descending to the most dense, known as your physical body. Those veils make you who you are, how you feel, your thought and behavior patterns, your health problems, and your dreams and yearnings.
Learning to sense, understand, and balance your koshas is important for your spiritual growth, freedom, and a higher quality of everyday life.

- Deepen and expand your knowledge of koshas: Their structure, inter-connection, relation to chakras, and cause-effect interactions
