Koshas: The Sheath
The second study focuses on the koshas, the layers of the Self. Often translated as “sheath” from Sanskrit, the five koshas navigate our human experience from the physical to the spiritual dimensions. We can begin to explore them from the physical body inward, through sheaths of prana (life force, energy), the mind, the witness consciousness, and the spiritual core (universal bliss). Just like the chakras, the koshas are an incredibly rich piece of yogic philosophy. Understanding and harmonizing these sheaths is a study worth exploring.
Learning the divine play of inner exploration and the surrender to higher consciousness is our calling. Once your eyes are opened to this calling, you’ll find yourself on a fascinating path that leads you through a more elevated experience of life.
