Rise: Overcoming Fear
Limited Capacity filling up

The practice of yoga leads us through a journey of self-discovery and a better understanding of the human condition. According to Patanjali's Yoga Sutras, there are five causes of human suffering called the kleshas. This workshop provides an introduction to these fear-based obstacles as well as an opportunity to identify your own. Thoughts and actions are frequently influenced by your apprehensions, attachments, and regrets. Identifying and overcoming these triggers will help you resolve anxieties and unlock your full potential. Empower yourself by transcending these kleshas through meditation, movement, and breath.

Water, Life, Love - Connecting with the Feminine to Save Our World
Limited Capacity seats available

This workshop includes 10-15 minutes meditation to ground, 25 minute lecture and final activity on affirmations for water. The lecture is about our relationship with water as western consumers and how indigenous wisdom can aid us in developing a better understand of our origins, our cultivation of reverence for nature and our survival through the climate crisis. By engaging more in feminine ways of thinking and understanding, we can unlock the pattern of hyper-masculinity and realize the necessity of balancing with feminine interpretation. You will leave with an understanding that water is life and life is love.
