The Art of Integral Being offers teaching and teacher training in Integral Yoga, meditation and other contemplative practices, as well as educational research on integral education and contemplative pedagogy.
Integral approaches view the body, mind and soul, science and spirituality, the self and the other, the sacred and the irreverent, as multi-facets of the same unified whole. This worldview is non-dual. This approach is universalist and honours the teachings of all yogic and other traditions. Some of the most effective of the teachings, enriched with current scientific contributions, form the basis of the system of Integral Yoga (physical, energetic, mental and spiritual).
Integral Yoga of the Dharma Ananda tradition fuses Hatha Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Dhyana Yoga and relaxation with a Taoist twist for working the physical body, energetic body and the mind. It is open and creative practice that offers both an accessible introduction to integral yogic practices as well as advanced philosophical and experiential teachings in wisdom (Prajna Yoga) and compassion (Karma Yoga and Karuna Yoga) for students navigating the processes of awakening.
The Art of Integral Being is founded by Gabriella F Buttarazzi (Uma Shakti Devi), who is doctorally trained and actively researches, teaches and continues to develop integral yogic practices.
