Embrace the Path of Non-Attached Actions and Relationships with Karma Yoga
Limited Capacity seats available

The ancient science of Karma Yoga, first taught by Krishna in the Bhagwad Gita, compliments our physical Yoga practice of asanas, because it works on purifying our ego’s, especially, when we engage in the world, through our various relationships. It includes consciously adopting ego-less attitudes and initiating five egoless actions daily, that purify our minds and motivations. Once you begin to lead your life, informed by the ancient path of Karma Yoga, you will begin to see the magic of life unfold, and what happens when we no longer make it always about our small self and its uncontrolled desires. We become representatives of a greater intelligence working through us. We no longer seek to control outcomes. Karma Yoga actions are never selfish or self-absorbed. The only benefits our ego draws are satisfaction and peace of mind. We find all the blessings of the universe in our very own homes, relationships and daily interactions when we begin to alleviate the suffering of our cohorts on planet earth, and to nurture other forms of consciousness and existence. The essential ingredient of Karma Yoga is the attitude of non-control or non-attachment. This flowing, accepting, giving attitude reveals tranquility and great joy from within. Vedic master teacher Acharya Shunya shines the light on a timeless spiritual path, facilitating enduring affirmative transformation in consciousness and living joyfully in the present moment.

Deepening Your Spiritual Practice Off the Mat - Vedic Sadhana for Self Enquiry
Limited Capacity seats available

Are you ready to deepen your spiritual practice off the yoga mat? While Sage Patanjali is renowned for the 8-step path of Yoga, there exist even older disciplines of mind purification from India that beautifully facilitate Yogic Sadhana. This class will introduce the Non-dualism (Advaita) based 9 Step spiritual discipline known as Sadhana Chatushtayam, that originated in ancient Vedic Upanishadic lineages, and was later systematized by Adi Shankarachaya in the 8th century. This cognitive thought-based practice remains relatively unknown in the west. For Yogis and Yoginis who struggle to maintain their inner equipoise or samatvam in daily life, these rich teachings provide a different pathway to purify the thoughts, make better life choices, and calm the ego. These practices support us to stay centered and focused on our spiritual goals, while participating fully and gracefully in the world. Ultimately this sadhana prepares us to receive Self knowledge as adhikari – qualified students of Jnana Yoga. Teacher Aparna Amy Lewis, a longtime student of Vedic scholar and lineage holder Acharya Shunya, and member of Veda Sarayu Sampradaya, will be sharing her lineage’s hidden treasure, the Sadhana Chatushtayam, as well as “spiritual case studies”, and her own journey of Self Enquiry as a student of a Vedic Gurukulam. For students who want to go deeper, copies of Aparna’s book Starting Your Spiritual Path (Jan. 2019) will be available.

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.

Astrology of Karma, Chakras and Healing
Limited Capacity seats available

Prior to each lifetime, your soul has set particular learning goals toward evolutionary growth and consciousness and has designed an experiential strategy for achieving them. Evolutionary astrology draws on ancient and modern tools of wisdom for intuitively revealing your soul's plan to your ego’s awareness. Once so informed, astrology can become another resource for the yoga of mindfulness, bringing your awareness back again and again to clarity, healing and fulfillment of karmic purpose. In this workshop, Barry will introduce the language and concepts of western astrology within an eastern, paradigm of soul evolvement, reflecting the elegance and loving grace of our divine reality. Using birth charts from clients and workshop participants, he will illustrate many ways that astrology can give keen insights into how the soul designs our personality and life dynamics, including the karmic gifts and imbalances we bring from the past, in order to attract and engage with the experiences from which we are here to learn and evolve.  As a practicing energy healer and life transformation coach, Barry will share the profound connections between the planets, human evolution, the chakras, personal healing, and the achievement of polarity balance (wholeness, enlightenment, etc).  “Know thyself” is an ancient admonition of spiritual wisdom. Astrology can be one of our best tools and practices for this. With just a basic understanding of astrology and an initial immersion into your own birth chart, it can empower your own ability to intuitively and objectively monitor the progress of your ego’s abilities to be in service to your soul.

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.

Detoxification: Jumpstart a Healthier You
Limited Capacity seats available

We all have different ways to show how toxic our bodies have become. We breathe toxins in our air, we drink toxins in our water, we ingest toxins through our food, we absorb toxins through our skin with the products we use - our bodies have been designed perfectly to battle these toxins, yet they can overwhelm us and we become less efficient at detoxifying. Would you like an opportunity to rid your body of toxins and improve your health drastically on your own? Haley, of Living Raw By Grace, will discuss how our body prioritizes detoxification and how to improve our ability to detoxify. She will discuss the three easiest and most efficient whole-body detoxification methods and provide a few recipes to try on your own!

Introduction to the Timeless Wisdom of Bhagavad Gita
Limited Capacity seats available

Bhagavad Gita, or "Song of God", consists of just 701 couplets, and the effect of these teachings, when contemplated and practiced, have the effect of both uplifting life and freeing us from suffering.

It seems that we have so many problems in our day to day life, and yet the seers and great Yogis tell us that really we have but one - that we have forgotten who we are. We live out of alignment with Peace and Joy. It is not that they do not exist, they are within each of us, but we have covered them up and forgotten our essential nature.

It is further said that regular study and contemplation of the Gita set us on the path of Freedom, of remembering, and of re-integrating; of attaining to Yoga (union with our own highest Self). If you have had a little or no exposure to the Gita and have an interest in learning more about the practice and philosophy of Yoga this will be a great workshop for you.

Top Ten Business Start-up Tips: Q&A
The entire business life cycle is open for discussion in this Q&A session. Note: Luck is Not a Business Strategy!
 
“It’s 1:32 a.m. and pouring rain outside. My arms are full of the workbook materials I just had printed in five-color print for my first ever 3-day workshop on “The Power of Planning.” Outside, lightning and thunder clap, as if to say, “I dare you to walk to your car without an umbrella!” Hoping and praying, I make it home for a few hours of sleep before driving the two hours to my workshop. All the way, I’m thinking, “Please, Lord, I need to land 10 new clients, or I’ll have to shut down my business.”
 
Does this sound like you or someone you know? Do you hope for the best and use a Fire, Ready, Aim approach to run your business? If so, you’re not alone. But hope and luck are not strategies to rely on for success in business or in life. Lets talk about what keep you up at night? Talk soon and best, Lorenzo
