Ancient Western Spirituality & Yoga: Observing Similarities

Join us for a free discussion about ancient spirituality - Western and Eastern - and how it relates to a yoga practice.

Hermetic theory is a collection of Greco-Egyptian concepts that form the basis for most Western spiritual thought.  This talk highlights some of the seven basic Hermetic principles in relation to Eastern spirituality and yoga, discussing connections between the two. 

Speaker David Miller has been a part of the WMYC community for more than two years participating in many of the Center’s classes and programs, including meditation, yoga, Sanskrit and the Sunday evening program series. David meditates daily, and studies and teaches religion, philosophy, African drumming and other esoteric subjects.

This complimentary program is to open everyone, and includes instruction and practice of meditation. The Woodbury Meditation & Yoga Center (WMYC) is located at 122 West Side Road in Woodbury, CT.
