How to Consciously Create a Life You Love
Jul 28 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

DESCRIPTION

How do you experience your authentic self? In our society, it is easy to experience life in a way that doesn’t feel genuine. Many of us unconsciously move through our days living on the edge of deep suffering due to not living in our purpose. Our purpose is to be who we truly are. No matter what that is for you individually, at the core, our only purpose is to live life authentically.

First, let’s get clear on what it means to “consciously create a life you LOVE”. From our experience, and from numerous psychological, spiritual and life studies, it is clear that we often have things backwards when it comes to living our best lives. It’s common to believe that our desires are what we must manifest and “get” in order to experience peace and happiness in our lives. Many of us have found ourselves on the hamster wheel chasing after our desires, only to get them and still feel incomplete. Why is that? If our desires are met, and we still find ourselves suffering, then what really does bring us happiness?

Happiness comes from being true to yourself—your Highest Self, not the image of yourself that you have adapted over your lifetime from family, society and peers; not your personality or unconscious survival mechanisms.

The philosophy behind these teachings is that practices such as meditation and self inquiry should be simple and easily accessible to all levels of consciousness. Whether you are just starting a journey of self discovery, or have been on this path for years, this workshop will provide you another step in your stairway to peace, love and enlightenment. Come as you are, and leave with a better sense of what that really means!

Tsa Lung: Tibetan Breathwork & Subtle Body Training
Aug 17 @ 4:00 pm – 6:30 pm

DESCRIPTION

In Tibetan, “tsa” means channel and “lung” means wind-energy. These are two of the three components of the subtle body. The third is essence, which is carried through the channels by the wind. Tsa Lung harnesses the breath to open the the subtle channels of the body, enabling the energy and vital essences to flow harmoniously.

With this practice, we train proper breath retention in combination with movement to release blockages. The result is increased vitality and a calmer, clearer mind.

Tsa Lung includes preliminary practices to prepare the body, breath and channels, and set the proper motivation, as well as meditation and visualization to integrate the changes.

In this introductory workshop, participants will:

– Receive background teachings on the purpose and lineage of the practice
– Learn a breathing practice to balance and cleanse the side-channels
– Practice the 4 steps of proper breath retention, which is the foundation of Tsa Lung
– Experience a core set of movements that can be done in conjunction with breath retention, whether a beginner or more advanced
– Understand what the subtle body is why it is vital to care for it
– Practice meditation to close the practice and integrate the openings that were created
