The Language of the Heart
In The Way of Yoga – Flowering YOUR Full Potential you learn a new language. This is the language of the heart. The heart KNOWS in ways that the head cannot.
Trust the heart to guide you. It will not lead you astray – Rumi
This heart centred language of KNOWING is shared by way of poetry, song, storytelling and practice.
This is the language, not of more information, but more transformation. This is the language, not of more communication but of communion.
This Way of Yoga is not a journey of belief and knowledge but a journey of experiential KNOWING.
It is a journey of learning to trust the magnificence of who you are so that in the words of the poet Anna Akhmatova, you can declare once again: –
The Secret of Secrets is inside me again – Anna Akhmatova

Let me share with you a brief overview of how The Way of Yoga free online yoga course will unfold. This overview is presently being written as at early April 2019.

He who climbs upon the highest mountains laughs at all tragedies, real or imaginary.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche

Yoga as a Journey into Meaning
The Way of Yoga – Flowering YOUR Full Potential is a journey of assent. It is the journey from the everyday experience of personal separateness into the direct experience of Divine Union.
There is another journey which most people are taking in this world of time and space.
It is what I call the Journey of Voyage and Return.
This is where the individual lives their life and gains no insight into the meaning and purpose of their existence.
They suffer but their suffering is without meaning. This is not a punishment. It ultimately leads the person on the quest that is The Way of Yoga
For many of us we have not been invited into the KNOWING of the magnificence of who we truly are.
At best we journey into self-improvement rather than the revelation that cannot be improved upon. This is because it is already whole and holy. It is who you are.
I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being. ― Hafiz of Shiraz
Companion YOUR Greatness
This online yoga training course is my attempt to fulfil my wish to show you the astonishing light of your own being.
You are created to be this magnificent revelation.
This is a magnificence beyond the separate sense of the personal self but that on awakening shines through the personality.
You become one of the people who, in Ireland, we call The Shining Ones – The Beautiful People – The Tuatha de Danaan.
The Way of Yoga – Flowering YOUR Full Potential invites you beyond the idea of personal development.
It invites you into a revelation of greatness. You are invited into KNOWING a fullness that then flows through you.
You become a flow of the Timeless within time and the Boundless within the boundary of a human body. This is the true experience of healing. You become a revelation of wholeness.
Finally the choice, if you have not already made it, is to commit to companioning your Greatness so that the Secret of Secrets can be inside you again.
This is your destiny but only you can fulfil it. In fulfilling this journey into union you know that, “I am blessed and can bless.” – W. B. Yeats
This is a happiness beyond opposites.
It is the blessing you already are, always and forever will be.
Take the next step into revealing the astonishing light of your own being. Thus you grant my wish in allowing me to show you this magnificent invitation that is the way into union – The Way of Yoga
More than this you grant the wish of Creation as it created you to express through you.
