7 Steps for Transforming Patterns (samskaras)

Today in Yoga class at the end of a wonderful flow, the Instructor said some meaningful words, “Take this moment to reflect on samskara (Sanskrit: “patterned or conditioned behaviors; subconscious tendencies; worldly life; impression.”)”

My mind went wandering….how many patterns of behaviors do I have?  So when I returned home I went back to my books. I found the old notebook that had all the scribblings that I wrote during my years studying Ayurvedic Medicine with Dr. Lad.  After finding the meaning of Samskara, I gave myself another new year resolution. I will dig deep and find one pattern and transform!   Below are the 7 steps! Join with me.  I will go one by one for the next 7 days!
