Yoga of Earth and Kosmic Consciousness – Yogagaia
Yogagaia is the Yoga of Earth and Kosmic consciousness, cosmic with a K as cosmos with a K, as defined by Ken Wilber is the sum total of reality, including matter, body, mind and spirit. It was created and is managed by Hasita Agathe Nadai commonly called Agi. She is creating Yogagaia where through the practice of yoga our deep connection to the planet is revealed. Yogagaia reminds us all that we are connected to the planet and the cosmos, and that we have to beware of it, by finding our place and knowing who we are on planet earth.
Created by Hasita Nadai, a Kripalu yoga teacher and a deep ecologist, Yogagaia is the practice of yoga and meditation interlinked with ecology and the planet earth, the Yoga of Earth. It focuses on awakening ourselves and the others as far as how we are grounded to the planet. It is the practice of Yoga with our mind, our body and our spirit focused on the natural energy surrounding us. Having in mind that we are all made of star dust, that we are all made of the stuff that form the universe and the cosmos, that we are all part of this evolution deeply connected to the evolution of the planet earth, Yogagaia carries a way of thinking, a philosophy that integrates in our life style as a way of being that benefits everyone around us, including ourselves. In the same fashion we transcend time, Yogagaia does also. It is an organic movement aimed at unifying the people around nature and planet earth: Gaia.
As a reminder of who we are as a human species on the planet earth, Agi has developped Yogagaia to help us reconnect with the history of the Universe. Through the practice of Yoga and meditation, Yogagaia defines itself as a teaching of our own story, the story of all, the story of the Kosmos. Therefore, it is just to describe it as the Yoga of Earth and Kosmic Consciousness.
Yogagaia is the Yoga of Earth and Kosmic consciousness.

“As in the atom so in the universe; as in the body so in the Kosmic body; as in the human mind so in the Kosmic mind.” — Upanishads
“The small self of the individual finds its Great Self in the Universe.” Thomas Berry
Yogagaia is the path toward Earth and Kosmic consciousness. This path mirrors the archetypal myth of the Great Journey.
Along the irreversible evolutionary spiral of the Kosmos, the Kosmic Dance of Shiva is mirrored in the archetypal relationship of Rebirth with Death. Not only of life forms through the eons, but also of ancestral stars who birthed all the atoms of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, and calcium that now compose our bodies, yet whose explosive deaths were essential for the recycling of those very atoms back into the Kosmos.
The Sanga is the entire Earth Community, and it mirrors the archetypal myth of the Kosmic Tree and the Tree of Life. The tree is the expression of the organic unity of the universe, especially of Earth in its integral reality.
In calling for service to all beings, including, atoms, rocks, rivers, mountains.. it mirrors the archetypal myth of the nurturing love of the Great Mother.
