These 4 Codes are a Path to Transformational Living!

WHOLE INTELLIGENCE

Mastering the Self, and in turn Mastering Life!

The concept of holistic intelligence is where the individual explores the ‘whole is more than the sum of it’s parts’ approach – an intelligence quotient which overrides the traditional norms of IQ.

  • Embracing aspects of intelligence to develop holistic genius. Focus on the Whole Human Being (Still and Dynamic), (Creative/Abstract and Practical)
  • Combining Self Realization and Self-Actualization (both together)
  • Being Sincere, Humorous, Practical, Grounded, Insightful, Self-Reliant
  • Living with Clarity
  • Combining Self Realization and Self-Actualization (both together)
  • Being well equipped with yogi and lifestyle tools to transcend situations

BALANCED INDIVIDUAL/WAY OF LIFE

Rising High, but going Deep!

  • Teachings are vast and inclusive (not just based on a specific ideology, but a dynamic integral holistic practice)
  • ‘Feet firmly planed on the earth, and head rising in the sky’
  • Understanding our own true nature the way of knowing oneself is the foundation for abundance – living a life of refined purpose. Living your Dharma. The purpose is about the inner quest.
  • Sangha – community of like-mined, jewel of compassion, giving back to those who need help. Maintaining our individuality and aloneness, at the same time giving back. Maintaining uniqueness and authenticity.
  • Conscious evolution = Awareness and Action

COMPLETE ‘BEING’

Living with Radical Aliveness

  • Blending Joy and Wisdom to be completely present and transcendental
  • Living in Contentment (feeling that you have everything that is needed at the moment – Space & Support)
  • Beautiful, inviting, nurturing, nourishing lifestyles
  • Abundant living by discovering your Inner Mystic!

TRUTHFUL COMMITMENT

Becoming Free!

  • Knowing and Tapping into the Authentic Self – this is the best blueprint we can offer into the world.
  • Commitment to your own self – becoming free, living a free life (above all attachments and conflicts), committed to the teachings, living an awakened life (free from all self-imposed and societal limitations)
  • Being truthful of who we are, the truth that can only be experienced at the innermost core. Truth that belongs to no-one but belongs to everyone.
SATTVA Graduates embrace and live all these qualities in their daily lives given the standards of the teachings as well as practice and self-study.

This is done through:

  • High Standards in the graduates, in order to reflect a certain quality, emanate certain states of consciousness and skill through their teaching.

  • Sattva Social Responsibility codes of Yogi Living instilled in the trainings
  • Teachers are encouraged to spread the class teachings at least once a week in their locations
  • Sattva is an Abundant Living Movement, where we encourage students to have an abundant way of living, ‘thriving and not only survining’
