In this class, the two great yogic models of the divine masculine, Shiva and Krishna, are explored. Through imagery, meditation, story, and skillful self-inquiry discover their archetypal qualities as sacred heroes, lovers, ascetics, and above all, as models of true freedom.
Shiva is the ultimate outsider-deity, both a self-controlled yogi and an erotic lover. Krishna — statesman, strategist, and polyamorous lover of a thousand women — models the skill of living an enlightened life in the world. Both Shiva and Krishna offer profound teachings about yoga and life. Each of them connects us to a different quality of sacred masculine presence.
