Energize Chakra with Love, Joy, Peace, Compassion
Chakra is a Sanskrit word that literally means “wheel” or “turning”. These energy points can be visualized as spinning focal points that both receive and transmit energy. Through concentrating on your seven chakras, you are able to “spin” these points, thus moving energy to nourish your body and the environment. Chakras are the fundamentals to understanding the practice of Yoga. Energizing chakra with love, joy, peace, and compassion increases your energy. You consciously follow the physical direction to stimulate and balance chakras. The experiences vary to accommodate your need at that point in time. You align with Divine Consciousness in real time. You give permission to allow divine consciousness to meet you where you are in that moment. There is a broad and universal frequency that allows and encourages you to expand. The Divine Consciousness frequency then aligns with the needed healing, creating a customized healing experience. Imagine the potential within you to play in a protected and expanded space. In other words, there is direct healing, nurturing, and a protected path to personally expand in an infinite way, incorporating physics and higher vibrational realities!

The Science of Mindfulness
Limited Capacity seats available

We've all been told about the importance of slowing down the mind through meditation or another type of mindfulness exercise. Do we know why it's important or what is happening when we do?  Craig's logical mind wanted to know more about what is actually happening. This talk reviews that research.  Jammed packed from start to finish... We opening and close with powerful Visualization Exercises and in between, Craig walks us through a riveting exploration of recent science. Craig's presence on stage is entertaining and captivating.  In a fun and practical way, we will review several scientific studies completed over the past 75 years.

yoga recovery: a mind, body, spirit journey to wellness
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

We all know someone who has been directly, or indirectly, impacted by addictions or alcoholism. As people, we have an innate need to bond and connect with one another. When we cannot do that, when we cannot connect to each other because of our circumstance, we’ve been traumatized, beaten down by life, mental unwellness, marginalization, whatever the cause may be, when we cannot connect with each other we will connect with something, anything, that gives us some sense of relief. And today, that isn’t limited to drugs and alcohol. We turn to shopping, gambling, sex, pornography, gaming, eating disorders, social media, whatever it is, to give us some sort of connection. And to complicate things, people 18 to 25 are reporting that they are incredibly lonely, despite their facebook friends and twitter followers. So where does Yoga Recovery come in? Yoga Recovery explores the heart and science of yoga, meditation and physical activity in recovery (yes, there are volumes of studies that validate yoga and meditation in recovery!) In this “workshop” flow we will see how our asana practice connects us to our physical self. This is the foundation to allow us to go deeper through meditation, to connect with our inner self, our true self, the Divine within. Our ability to really tap into our true self is essential if we are to connect, bond and love one another. . Together we will flow, we will meditate and we will connect with one another in a deeply powerful way. Participants will leave our practice feeling rooted, connected to oneself and to others, and deeply aware of the power of love within. This is a sampling of the 100 hour Yoga Recovery course that has been approved by Yoga Alliance for Continuing Education credits.

Working with Difficult Emotions
Limited Capacity seats available

Everyone has had the experience of feeling controlled by strong emotions, which can lead to further difficulties. How can we learn to work with the wisdom inherent in these emotions without letting them do harm to ourselves or others? If we consider our own experience, we usually realize that trying to "control" our emotions doesn't help in the long run, nor does acting out based on them. In Vajrayana Buddhism it is said that emotions have the co-emergent properties of both wisdom and confusion. How can we learn to separate them so that we are using the wisdom without acting out the confusion? This session will give practice with several contemplative practices from Buddhist traditions to help us learn to work with our emotions skillfully. We don't need to demonize our difficult emotions, nor do we need to be controlled by them. The practices offered are powerful, and range in difficulty (over and above the inherent difficulty of trying to learn new emotional habits), but there should be something for everyone. Warning: These practices put us into direct contact with difficult and unresolved emotions, and this will not be the right space for helping people to cope with what may arise. If you may need more support than you can give yourself, please make a plan for that.

Experiencing The power and heart of the White Buffalo and White Buffalo Calf Woman
Limited Capacity seats available

After attempting to make a homeopathic remedy from the frequency of a pregnant White Buffalo in Flagstaff, I discovered that the one I had made from her shed fur carried powerful highly spiritual frequencies. These were best transmitted during meditation. Their blessings and effects have amazed me and others. Many, including myself, actually felt the presence and blessings of White Buffalo Calf Woman, and an amazing peace and love opening the heart chakra. Since then I have told Her story (White Buffalo Calf Woman) and used the spray in many groups and ceremonies. In this session we will explore my story with Her, Her story, and then Her Essence with the special mist Essence that opens us to her magic. Everyone is blown away with the experience- even those who have never meditated. Her Essence also has strong healing properties for pain, and tight, sore muscles and joints. Spraying it topically makes certain yoga postures easier for those who have problems with them too. while best used during meditation, it can also be used for fussy children and adults out of sorts with their heart chakras! The presentation will include  a meditation with the Essence mist for everyone, ending with a healing for the planet in the true spirit of the White Buffalo and her message of unity and the healing of Mother Earth.

Japa Yoga - Path of Upliftment and Freedom
Limited Capacity seats available

The human psyche craves harmony and abhors disharmony or discord. This fundamental truth of each of us determines the course of our life, and we take on an expansive and happy life only when we find the state which is always harmonious. This highest state is called Yoga, union with the absolute Self (which when known within is also known without).

If we look at this craving and aversion around harmony and discord we see that it enters every aspect of life, and when we dive deeply within we see that it is vibrational - it is both the nature of sound and the nature of our thoughts. The entire science of Yoga is rooted in the understanding that the great Yogis, sages and seers have shared about the nature of these vibrations, and how to use them in order to uplift our life, from the depths of materialism to the heights of absolute Consciousness - Satchidananda - Existence, Wisdom and Bliss Absolute. Each aspect of this inner science of awakening fits together to uplift the vibrations that we call thought, and thus also our speech and our action.

Mantra Yoga, or Japa Yoga, is one of the most pure and direct methods of upliftment within given us. The simple act of chanting takes us out of our worries and cares, helping us to be present in the moment, with more joy, resilience and resource in our lives. Moments or ecstasy are typically experienced in chanting Japa and Kirtan, and the mind itself is re-wired, centering us more and more within the great peace. Kirtan has become very popular in the west, not so yet Japa (repetition of Mantra). In this workshop we will both explore the theory behind Mantra chanting as well as techniques, while we join together to chant various sacred Japa Mantras.

Yoga and Qi Gong Practice: Timeless Wisdom for Navigating the Experience of Life
Limited Capacity seats available

Our experience of life now is ….. well, let me say, “challenging.” We are in the throes of a changing time. It is a time of questioning the meanings and purposes of our lives and the roles we have taken on to survive and thrive. We are seeing the qualities of limitation and separation that are inherent to the underlying belief structure of our present paradigm. And we are beginning to understand and accept that the attitudes and behaviors arising from these beliefs are destroying the earth, our outer environment, and our lives, our inner environment. We cannot continue to seek our meaning, purpose, value, and identity in this paradigm. We must find different beliefs; new meanings, new purposes, new roles. I think all of us have been praying, asking for guidance and help as we seek a new way of being. As it says in Mathew, “Ask, and it shall be given you …, Knock; and it shall be opened unto you.” I believe that it is by design that the practices of Yoga and Qi Gong have come into our present experiences. For these, in their essence, are practices in consciousness. It is in consciousness that we are aware of our beliefs and choose the beliefs we hold as our truth. These beliefs form our reality; they become our experiences of life! Though our practice begins in the vibrational; the physical, energetic, emotional, and mental levels of our being, it quickly reveals that we are also consciousness. We then become aware of the mystical interface between our consciousness and vibrational existence. The practice leads us deeper within where we learn to navigate this interface. Along the way, we are given the keys and principles that guide us to, and help us face, our internal unknown ----- help us to be present at this interface without contraction, judgement, a need to control, or expectation of outcome. Our open presence or surrender before this inner “altar” is our invitation to God. This is our communion; this is how we become a living path of transformational change. Pantanjali, in his Yoga Sutras, wrote, “Yoga is the neutralization of the alternating (vibrating) waves in consciousness.” One thing that I think is obvious to all of us is that we are here to experience this world. But I believe we were not meant to be trapped here. Our consciousness, the very essence of Who We Are, does not come from our experiences of the world, it comes from something that we cannot know through the vibrational i.e. mind, emotion, energy, and matter (the alternating waves). It is only to the extent that we seek and, therefore, attach our identity and our personal value to our experiences of this world that we become entrapped within it. Both Yoga and Qi Gong Practice are teaching us how to experience vibrational existence (Creation and our bodies) while knowing that we (our true identity and value) do not come from these experiences. We are learning to experience this world, to experience everything that it has to offer, without getting entrapped and limited by our experiences.

The Zen of....ummm.....actual Zen
Limited Capacity seats available

What is Zen? A Google search starting with "The Zen of" yields these top suggestions: "screaming," "python" (a computer language), and "social media marketing"). I don't think any of those are what the Buddha had in mind. Zen, as a school of Buddhism, has a long and rich history, but all of it points to one thing. What is this one thing? (Hint: it's not just pretending to be calm.) Zen is funny. Shunryu Suzuki famously said that he could explain Zen in two words: "Not always so." We will discuss a little of the history and practices, with opportunities to experience some of them for yourself. In this interactive session, you will have time to ask any question you like about Zen Buddhist practice.

According to the on-going neuroscience research, the TNTs enable you to become happier, more intelligent, promote higher self-control, and getting “in the Zone”. Healing PAQ is using the most advanced neuroscience technology such as EEG (Electro Encephalogram), and fMRI (Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging) to research the influence of TNTs on the human brain. The self-healing guided meditation audio has increased the average brain waves more than 3 times among 60 EEG participants. The silent distance healing video has increased the average brain waves more than 4 times among 60 EEG participants. The fMRI demonstrates an extensive amount of blood flow to the visual cortex and the pre-frontal cortex that is the executive commander of the brain. In this session we practice these techniques as we also discuss the scientific evidence.
