The path of the Sustainable Yogi
The Ecology & Spirituality course goes way beyond learning practical skills. This one-year residential program translates the timeless wisdom of Yoga into daily life expressions – reaching inner and outer harmony and to grow spiritually through Karma Yoga, Raja Yoga, Jnana Yoga and Bhakti Yoga. The beautiful blend of discipline, freedom, dedication and daily spiritual practices within the yogic lifestyle in Divinya, offers you the opportunity to gain clarity of life and its purpose.
The Divinya community is a group of highly motivated, active and dedicated visionaries, who explore a non-religious and non-dogmatic eco-spiritual way of living – exploring the life of the cosmic human on this planet. Participants are fully integrated in all the community engagements during their time in Divinya.
As an aspirant you will be engaged in the serene gardens, building projects and permaculture landscapes alongside like-minded spiritual seekers, experiencing the transformational togetherness in the unique environment. It is a valuable opportunity of learning through living, of understanding through experiencing and of growing through participating.
