“Durga Flow | Fierce Compassion”
Janet Stone

The goddess Durga embodies the attributes of fierce compassion, patience, and fearlessness. Through aligning with her powers, we can experience the full force of divine love in its gentlest and its fiercest forms. How do we dance with the Kali energy as it moves through us and in the world? How do we open to her transformative shakti, and learn how to receive and embody the power of love? This class offers both insight into and experience of the gifts that come from understanding how Durga works in our practice and in our lives.

“The Power of the Heart : Yoga and Bhakti Immersion Class”
With Saul David Raye & special guests

Ancient mystics experienced the Heart as the true center of our being. Modern science and medicine are understanding this profound truth more every year. The heart is over 5,000 times energetically more powerful than any other part of our being. The heart is the infinite quantum, space within where all polarities dissolve and we experience our connection to source as Oneness. We live in a time of transformation, that is about waking up into consciousness, your heart is the center, this is the essence of Yogic teachings and all traditions of sacred wisdom. Saul will share powerful Yoga/Tantra practices including asana, breathwork. Meditation and chanting for healing the heart on different levels of consciousness as well as deeper teachings from the upanishads and other tradtions. AUM

All levels are welcome.
