The Path to Healing and Independence:
Chapter 3 of Patañjali’s Yogasūtra
with Chase Bossart
Chapter 3 of Patañjali’s Yogasūtra is the text that confirms our innate potentials while helping us to understand that we do not have to focus on these potentials to see them realized. Instead this Chapter shows us that through healing we correct the conditions of our system which allows our potentials to arise.
This is a liberating process.
Think of the flower that blooms in spring when the conditions are favorable. The flower is not focused on blooming, instead when the conditions are right the flower thrives in its environment.
In The Path to Healing and Independence – Pantanjali’s Yogasūtra Chapter 3, Chase Bossart will explain the core concepts of this text and how healing is both the way and the outcome of our true power.
