Ingvar Villido Ishwarananda: “Myths of the Spiritual Journey”

Seemingly impossible body positions, renunciation of life’s pleasures and an ascetic way of life – is this the spiritual path? What is a spiritual path anyway? Are some paths faster than others, and can the journey also stop at a dead end? How does yoga relate to one’s spiritual journey? What is freedom and liberation? What is renunciation and what is required to be renounced? How does the spiritual path relate to a person’s self-discovery? What is self-realization?  

“What is called spirituality is actually an integral part of life” – Ishwarananda 

In the Path of Wisdom of February, we debunk myths about the spiritual journey, yogic lifestyle and self-development. We explore how Siddha Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, written two thousand years ago, relate to what Ingvar teaches people today. 

We will also learn:  

  • what does it mean that “one must mature for the spiritual journey”?  
  • what are the effects of spiritual practices on a person?  
  • have human evolution, self-discovery, and the spiritual path remained the same for millennia or has it changed over time?  
  • how are conscious action, wisdom and kriya yoga related to human development and journey?  
  • why are the yoga sutras of Patanjali considered the foundation of kriya yoga? 

Ingvar has followed the path of Siddha yoga for over 30 years. In the “Path of Wisdom” series, he shares deeper insights on this journey in his own simple and practical way. His specialty is the ability to create practical connections between spiritual and everyday knowledge. 

Recording of the lecture will be available soon.
