The Upanisads & Biomechanics


Our Wisdom Module focuses on the Upanisads & Biomechanics – the esoteric and practical, the macrocosm and the microcosm.

Carve out 6 days of deep study, mind-opening ideas, and mind-blowing expansion. Uncover the wisdom of the Upanishads with Professor Edwin Bryant and four days of Biomechanics and critical thinking with Jules Mitchell.

Focus of Study:

UPANISADS w/ Edwin Bryant- The Upanisads are the earliest source Vedic texts wherein can be found the roots of all later Hinduism. It is in these texts that we find notions such as yoga, karma, moksa, åtman, reincarnation, and bhakti etc., first expressed. All later Hindu schools of yoga trace their origins back to the Upanisads, so they stand as the foundation of all traditional Hindu spirituality.

This workshop will engage the most famous and oft quoted selections from the primary Upanisads. We will find the earliest seeds of Indian philosophy in these texts, as well as beautiful metaphorically delivered expressions of the spiritual quest. We will use Patrick Olivelle’s translation (Oxford University Press) of the Upanisads; selections will be provided for those who do not wish to purchase the text.

BIOMECHANICS w/ Jules Mitchell- Do you have an insatiable curiosity about how the body works? Are you unsatisfied by anatomical explanations that seem contradictory, unnecessarily complicated, or oversimplified? Put an end to all the conflicting messages and just get the facts. Jules combines her love of research and her top-notch teaching skills to help you make sense of it all and empower you to think critically and become a natural problem solver.
