Winter Solstice Sound Bath

Welcome the winter season through mindful listening and positive intention. You will lie down and be immersed in a magical sonic landscape of gongs, singing bowls and other overtone emitting instruments. It’s a form of guided meditation where you are bathed in sound waves that transport you to deeply relaxing, healing and meditative states of consciousness.

Full Moon Cacao Ceremony

Cacao, from which modern chocolate is derived, has been revered for centuries by the indigenous peoples of Central America because of its medicinal and spiritual properties. During full moons, our intuition and emotions are heightened. Drinking cacao ceremonially enhances that experience and activates the heart chakra.

Why We Practice Yoga

A teacher leads a hot yoga class in upward dog pose.

Yoga’s eightfold path offers a multitude of practices and techniques for achieving radiant health and Self-Realization.

In the West, what gets the most attention is asana, which is when we bend and stretch the body into various shapes and poses.  Postural yoga helps make us stronger, more flexible, and more resilient. 

However, there are many forms of yoga that can be practiced without a yoga mat.  For example, the Yamas and Niyamas are guidelines for ethical behavior in our daily lives.

When we practice pranayama, we tap into the power of prana. That’s the life-force or energy that surrounds and sustains all living beings. Meanwhile, pratyahara turns our attention inward, giving our senses a much-needed break from external distractions.

Finally, meditation brings discipline to the monkey mind.  With time, it will sharpen the intellect and lift the veil of ignorance.  We will then be able to see the world with truth and clarity.
