Yoga is a method of practice in which the truth of spiritual teachings are directly verified. In yoga, it is considered essential that one have a direct experience of the teachings. The goal is for one to become liberated or Self-realized. Self-realization occurs through the direct perception of soul knowledge. This direct perception cannot be attained from merely reading books. Neither is it created through practice of spiritual exercises; they only prepare the way. This truth already exists within the soul, so it cannot be attained or created. It can only be remembered.

At CSE we offer many classes and programs that support this goal by providing an environment that is conducive to the experience of awakening.

Practice is the way for one to explore the teaching within the realm of direct, personal experience.
