Merging with the Infinite: A Crystal Sound Healing Meditation with ASHANA & the crystal singing bowls
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Weaving together the sacred sound currents of crystal singing bowls, mantra and soaring angelic vocals, this high frequency sound meditation takes you on a profound journey of incomparable beauty as you open to the purity of your own precious, infinite light. Tension and stress melt away as the crystalline sounds gently penetrate every cell and fiber of your being. Your mind becomes still, quiet and peaceful. Your entire body relaxes as the pure quartz crystal and master alchemy singing bowls balance, heal, cleanse and purify your entire being. There is nothing to do but receive and open to the eternal love ever present with your higher self. Guiding you is Ashana, the world's most renowned master crystal bowl artist, musician and sound healer in this intimate time of prayerful healing sound, mantra and music. Together with Sedona's very own Three Trees on didgeridoo, percussion and hang drum, heaven meets earth in an extraordinary union of sonic brilliance. When played with intention and grace, the sound of quartz crystal singing bowls results in a significant decrease in stress and anxiety as the nervous system becomes calm and the mind expanded and clear. Creativity becomes heightened as right and left hemispheres of the brain begin to synchronize and balance as endorphins are released throughout your system. Resistance, fear and stress melt away. Your awareness expands as you open to the infinite presence of your Higher Self and rest in the quiet center of loving kindness, acceptance and peace.

Re-Write Your Relationship To Stress
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

Instead of managing our relationship to our thoughts, we attempt to manage what’s happening around us. When uncomfortable situations surface in life, our automatic tendency is to back away towards comfort. Yoga, when practiced properly, actually uses discomfort to reveal where we are blocked and teaches us to relax even while feeling uncomfortable. Gradually, we loosen the grip of resistance and widen our capacity to remain integrated in other situations. In this workshop, we will use yoga-based techniques to skillfully approach intensity and practice re-writing our relationships to the circumstances we otherwise waste our energy attempting to control or avoid. This session is open to yoga enthusiasts of all experience levels. The Posture of Consciousness is a unique blend of Hatha and Raja Yoga. The session is a combination of correct understanding and direct experience.

Embodying Shakti: Enchanting Saraswati
Limited Capacity seats available

HELLO SHAKTI: Humankind has acknowledged the Divine Feminine for millennia, in its endless search for understanding and mystical union with the Universe. The diverse faces of the Goddess archetype – known in the East by many different guises, but always as Shakti, the great feminine energy that exists both within and without our bodies – can teach us many important lessons about creativity, love, healing, protection, dedication and personal power. Saraswati, the Muse of India's sacred pantheon, is referred to as a river, a current, a lightening bolt of inspiration. As the Mother of the Spoken Word, her energy continues to inspire artists of every form; Saraswati also teaches us how to use the power of our words to weave the fabric of our lives and manifest our desires. Join Ana Pilar and Jamie as they tap into the Great Goddess energy within through a dynamic, playful and creative blend of storytelling, yoga and drum-guided visual meditation. By embodying these energies in both the physical (yoga asana) and metaphysical (guided meditation) realms, participants begin to recognize the Shakti energy moving through and around them every day, as well as start building personal practices that channel this vibrant feminine power to lift them toward their full potentials.

The Role of Restoration Yoga as a Healing Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

Restorative Yoga may seem to be intimidating at first. How to place the supports, the blocks, the straps.....? Relax- this is the key word in restoration, Relaxation. In this session, learn what makes this practice more than just relaxing, but a true state of Surrender. Most people spend a great deal of the waking, conscious day (and truthfully, their slumbering unconscious night!) in dealing with stress. For many folks, the very act of lying back and being still is even in itself a massive shift in allowing. Minds are busy filling in the gaps of what I woulda, coulda, shoulda have done. Or endlessly loop around the what I must do next. This process creates a mental crazy train that is deftly crippling otherwise normal, healthy people. Teaching them what slowing down even means, is a challenge! Add to this, the amount of toll that is placed upon the human body through overindulgences- whether this be too much sitting at a computer, or too much spinning in the gym. Our bodies find healing in the place between such states. The beauty of Restoration yoga, is that even people with no prior yoga experience, or who are in recovery from addictions and trauma, can find deep psychological support and healing in profound ways. In fact, the vulnerability that can be exposed and then lovingly supported is beautiful. Come experience for yourself why this gentle practice is so dearly needed in a time of accelerated change.

Satsang with Mohanji - A Rare Opportunity to Find Yourself
Limited Capacity seats available

A “Satsang with Mohanji” session is essentially about YOU with the Master. It is all about finding yourself. As is typical of the tradition of liberation, Mohanji will use a medley of practices such as Q & A, discourse, dhyana (meditation), pranayama, mantras/shlokas, manana (contemplation techniques), etc., to allow the participant an opportunity to start entering their inner space and seek within. The actual flow will finally depend on orientation and energy of the participants. Please note that the Sunday session with Mohanji will be the only opportunity to receive Shaktipat (energy transfer) from Mohanji during the festival.

The Yoga of Chocolate: A Journey of the Senses
Limited Capacity seats available

With the practice of pratyahara you can cultivate a more intimate relationship to your experience of sensation. A less common translation of the word pratyahara is ‘to recover the senses'. In this workshop, chocolate and asana will be the vehicles which we will use to cultivate that sensitivity, as our eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, heart, and whole body take in the delicate subtleties in the different varieties of chocolate. Combined with the chocolate tastings, we will explore SATYA, somatic movement techniques developed by Tias Little, to further heighten that awareness. In this workshop, chocolate will be used as a means of directing the participants' attention inward, and not at all as a gimick. The aim is to use chocolate as a way of encouraging people to slow down and really taste, savor, and enjoy their present moment experiences, whatever they may be ( (this one they will hopefully find especially delicious!) Combining the chocolate tasting with the SATYA work from Tias Little (SATYA stands for 'somatic awareness training for yoga asana' will allow the attendees to go deeper and deeper inward through a variety of different means, both complementing one another...as they become more attuned to the smell, texture, tastes of the chocolate during the tastings, their awareness of subtle physical sensation during the movement will be heightened as well!

Heal Your Heart with The Kriya Ritual of Forgiveness
Limited Capacity filling up

Do you hold on to old hurts that drain your energy? Would you like to let go of resentment so you can live with more ease and joy? No matter how badly you have been hurt, it is possible to forgive and live with a healed and open heart. Bitterness creates restriction in your heart chakra and holds you back from living into your highest potential. We give away our power when we allow our energy to be consumed by hurt and resentment. Sometimes, our energy is drained by the anger we feel towards our own actions. When we learn to forgive others, we also learn to forgive ourselves. We are all good and whole at the core of our beings, and we all are doing the best we know how. Recognizing this is the first step toward forgiveness. The Kriya Ritual of Forgiveness is a powerful meditation technique using visualization and mantra to heal your heart. The ritual is performed on the internal planes through visualization. You will leave this workshop with a simple and amazingly effective tool for healing your hurt and resentment.

So many of us have stories about our voices. Some of us shut down our voices in response to the unkind or thoughtless words of a teacher or parent. Some of us learned to keep our feelings hidden because it wasn't safe to express them. Some of us have been struggling for years with chronic pain; unresolved emotional trauma; literally locking up our bodies with disease, discomfort, depression or more. Did you know your voice is one of the most powerful medicines available to you? Did you know that the very sound of your voice can help heal the deepest trauma and release the most stubborn blocks and emotional scars? Did you know that the sound of your own, uniquely beautiful voice can be a healing balm for yourself and others — and open a doorway to your soul? In this two hour hands-on experiential workshop, you will begin to identify and break through some of the limiting beliefs about yourself and your voice that have kept you from authentically expressing yourself with passion, authenticity and joy.

Southern Forms of Kalari Movement
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

In this session we will introduce the first 3 Southern Empty Hands Forms, including the Salutation form. Native to the Southern Kerala practitioners of Kalarippayattu, these forms are now utilized to find peace and stability in times of stress. These standing sequences include turns, blocks, and kicks where we metaphorically eliminate obstacles that block our path through life. Kalaripayattu is known as Kalari in the West. It is an ancient martial and healing art that originated in Southern India thousands of years ago and has influences from the Druvidains and Aryans. There are references of Kalari (referred as martial techniques) in the ancient text The Vedas, the Mahabharata and Ramayana. The history of Kalari is of mythology, secrets, exploitation and experience passed through the generations. It is amazing that the art is still alive today given its difficult history. Being that Kalari is both a martial and a healing art, a practitioner or viewer has multiple paths to follow. We (Kalari Movement) choose to follow and teach the health and wellness aspects of Kalari. The art is life practice of preservation, to preserve ones-self and the life of others.

Intro Talk to Vedic Meditation
Limited Capacity seats available

Vedic Meditation is derived from the Veda, the 5,000 year old body of wisdom and source of yoga and Ayurvedic medicine. During meditation, one experiences inner wakefulness beyond thought. Meditators describe this state as supreme inner contentment. The restfulness accompanying meditation is considerably deeper than that gained by sleeping. This profound rest allows deep-rooted stresses to dissolve naturally, bringing innumerable health benefits to the individual. The integration of bliss consciousness and deeper levels of rest with one’s dynamic daily activity allows the meditator to become less stressed, more creative, more productive, and more adaptable to the demands of life.

Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

The Dynamic Meditation is an active morning meditation using breath, sound and movement to unlock and release unwanted emotional and behavior patterns. It creates an opening of spiritual transformation through the body side of the mind-body-spirit trilogy. It can help identify blocks and soften or eliminate them so that healing and transformation can occur. The meditation will be an introductory half-hour active exercise, with eyes closed and focused on the inner state. There are five stages: chaotic and deep breathing, cathartic emotional release, upward energy flow and calling in of the divine (HU), witnessing, and celebration. It uses the breath to energize energies stored in our cells, memory energies that contain patterns of outdated behavior. This is an excellent practice for reclaiming centeredness when distracted by life dramas.

Understanding The Philosophy of Vedic Wisdom
Limited Capacity seats available

There is a great misconception among many people inhabiting this planet of I, me, and mine, that have produced a chaotic world that is destroying itself. The Vedic concepts of higher consciousness, the understanding of simple living and high thinking, can produce better harmony and stewardship of mother earth. This is applicable to all people who are on different levels of understanding, of how to attain a higher satisfaction and experience of the self within. Vedic wisdom is coming from a platform of absolute truth without mental speculation, and is used by all transcendentalists of India in their journey of self realization and the empowerment of freedom from the anxieties of a complex world of exploitation. We will present some ideas from such literature as the Bhagavad-gita, Maha-Bharata, Upanisads, and Bhagavat Purana, in both history and practical application.

Meditation as A Key Component to any Yoga Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

Meditation as a practice is a key component for any Yogi, either as a teacher or student. As far back as the oldest Upanishads we learn, Meditation indeed is greater than the mind. The earth as it were, meditates. The atmosphere as it were, meditates. Heaven as it were, meditates. The waters as it were, meditate. The mountains as it were, meditate. Both men and gods as it were, meditate. He who worships God as meditation, as far as meditation extends, so far does he gain the power to act as he wills (Chandogya Upanishad VII.7). So ingrained in the need of the human psyche is it to Know Itself, that we have studied it for all of our recorded human history. And yet its function and practical applications have remained as shrouded in mystery for most modern humans as it has for our past. Understanding the Inner Self, or the I AM, is far simpler and more approachable than most people may realize. And although it would seems to be as important to serve our selves as our students in yoga classes, many modern yoga teachers are uncomfortable with its practice and indeed are not adherents even for themselves, and therefore do not give adequate instruction in its capability. In this workshop, we will dive into the practicality of what Meditation IS and WHY it works. - Understand the brain and how the Conscious and SubConscious mind work together. - Discover how systematic thought can change the body's reactions and responses to illness and pain. - Be guided through a personal journey that will give you a glimpse of the threshold of where a deep meditation practice may lead you.

Namaste as a Spiritual Practice
Limited Capacity seats available

Yoga teaches the interconnectedness of all life. We are all one in the ocean of consciousness. This is a profound teaching that invites us to dissolve the boundaries of ego and connect more deeply with those around us. However, it can sometimes be confusing to figure out exactly how we are supposed to do this. Ego a sacred part of our being and a necessary tool for embodiment. Ego helps us define where we end and another human being begins. It helps us create and maintain healthy boundaries to live an earth plane existence in which we need to feed, clothe, and protect ourselves. While the project of the ego goes against the recognition of oneness, it is not in itself ‘bad'. Indeed, a well-trained ego can be among our most powerful allies as we walk our spiritual path. If left untrained, however, or permitted to obscure our true selves, ego can be our very worst enemy. In this workshop, you will learn tools to keep your ego in its proper place as an ally in embodiment, allowing your true connection to the sacred oneness of all things to emerge into consciousness. These skills will help you to live Namaste as part of a daily practice.

Embodying Shakti: Reclaiming Sita's Fire
Limited Capacity seats available

HELLO SHAKTI: Humankind has acknowledged the Divine Feminine for millennia, in its endless search for understanding and mystical union with the Universe. The diverse faces of the Goddess archetype – known in the East by many different guises, but always as Shakti, the great feminine energy that exists both within and without our bodies – can teach us many important lessons about creativity, love, healing, protection, dedication and personal power. Sita, avatar of Lakshmi, has long been categorized as the submissive wife of Rama. But if we dive deeper into Sita's story, we uncover a woman of unique spiritual fire and purpose; she who is unfraid of the flames and remains dedicated to her personal truth. In reclaiming Sita's fire - her blazing Agni - we generate our own firepower, burn bright, and light up the Universe. Join Ana Pilar and Jamie as they tap into the Great Goddess energy within through a dynamic, playful and creative blend of storytelling, yoga and drum-guided visual meditation. By embodying these energies in both the physical (yoga asana) and metaphysical (guided meditation) realms, participants begin to recognize the Shakti energy moving through and around them every day, as well as start building personal practices that channel this vibrant feminine power to lift them toward their full potentials. All genders welcome!

Satsang with Mohanji - A Rare Opportunity to Find Yourself
Limited Capacity seats available

A “Satsang with Mohanji” session is essentially about YOU with the Master. It is all about finding yourself. As is typical of the tradition of liberation, Mohanji will use a medley of practices such as Q&A, discourse, dhyana (meditation), pranayama, mantras/shlokas, manana (contemplation techniques), etc., to allow the participant an opportunity to start entering their inner space and seek within. The actual flow will finally depend on orientation and energy of the participants. At this session, following satsang, Mohanji will give Shaktipat (energy transfer) to all participants who choose to receive it. The actual content of the satsang will be similar to the Friday and Saturday sessions (and thus the 2 hour stated session length below). The additional length for this session is to allow time for participants to receive Shaktipat. If necessary the satsang portion may be shortened to accommodate more people receiving Shaktipat.
