What is an "Enlightenment Studio"?
The Enlightenment Studio is the first of its kind. It interweaves the ancient practices of Yoga and Buddhism for mind and body in one studio to bring each student to the highest end result: ENLIGHTENMENT. Three Jewels offers a complete path to enlightenment through an integrated practice of yoga, meditation, and Buddhist philosophy.
What does THREE JEWELS mean?
In Buddhism, "The Three Jewels" are the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. But what does that mean?
Buddha- I think we're all familiar with this historical figure. But a Buddha, or Awakened Being, can be anyone that has reached total enlightenment. The point is that its totally possible for you.
Dharma - The Buddha’s teachings i.e. everything has infinite potential, being kind, stilling the mind, the true nature of reality.
Sangha - The community of people that have realized and live by these ideas.
But the real definition of "The Three Jewels" isn't just those things. Its by making these JEWELS the core principles of your life that transform you as a person (into a Buddha).
