I’ve been studying Higher Self Yoga since 2000. I came to it after studying the parent teaching Agni Yoga for a number of years.
Not long before I had gone into education with more or less conscious aims to be of service to the world somehow, and to face down a fear of public involvement. HSY fit this move perfectly, by emphasizing psychological growth and acting from the heart as a position of great strength. The guidance it has provided and richness of life it has made possible are nothing I can express; I will forever be in gratitude for these gifts.
It is fair to say my life moved in a different direction upon devoting myself to daily practice of Higher Self Yoga-striving ever upward by moving further into life, and its many challenges, both on an individual level and also those facing humanity. It guided, and guides still, a path of fulfillment that includes marriage, parenting, community and career. The treasures it puts in one’s path-opportunities for service in each moment-cannot be measured.
To quote one of the Agni Yoga Books, Leaves of Morya’s Garden II, “Blessed be the obstacles, through them we grow.”
