Blessings and Clearings - Sandra Rolus

Awakening Presence with Acharya Shunya Pratichi Mathur: Discover the Vedic path of evolution of consciousness, spiritual growth, and ultimate self-healing.The ancient Vedic sister sciences of Yoga, Ayurveda and Vedanta beckon each one of us to fulfill our divine potential and recognize our true spirit nature, the divine Self. The three sciences outwardly focus on mind, body and spirit respectively, yet in their own way, the fundamental and interior message is common to the three sciences, and universal: How to live in an empowered way, with authenticity of Self knowledge and compassion for all beings.

Join internationally renowned Vedic master teacher and author Acharya Shunya, as she shares essential insights from the venerable Vedic tradition on awakening presence, and expediting a beautiful spiritual unfolding to reconnect with who you really are.

With mastery of Vedic texts and scriptures, ease of expression and poetry in articulation of Sanskrit prose, Vedic master teacher Acharya Shunya shines the light on a timeless spiritual path, facilitating enduring affirmative transformation in consciousness and living joyfully in the present moment. Your inner knowingness can be awakened, but only a unique inner journey will lead you to it. Come listen to a master expound upon this journey.

The Yoga of the Vortex - Pete Sanders

Reveal Your Superpower with Sarah Mclean: 
Could it be that your personal power is directly related to your ability to pay attention? Sarah McLean, Hay House Author and meditation expert, believes it's so. And, she'll show you why. Most people live their lives with a continuous partial attention. Not truly engaged, but kind of half listening, half distracted, or easily thrown off track because of the demands from their to-do lists, their various mental musings, or their electronic companions.

Meditation, specifically mindfulness meditation, can help anyone reclaim his or her ability to pay attention. And attention is the most important ingredient for living a powerful, purposeful life. Attention is powerful. After all, what you pay attention to is enlivened in your life. You can learn to deal with distractions by strengthening your attention muscle with simple meditation and mindfulness practices so you can 1. Be more focused on the present moment and: • Savor each moment of your life by engaging your attention on what you are doing while you're doing it; • Be more mindful in your communications whether with your family members, loved ones, and those you work with; • Be alert to opportunities, creative responses, and inspiration—all which are only available if you are paying attention. 2. Increase your interior awareness and: • Become more aware of your thought patterns, reactions and emotions; • Tune in to your gut feelings and inner knowing; • Make choices based on your true values rather than out of habit. 3. Enhance your ability to focus on one thing at a time and: • Attend to what is important to you without distraction; • Finish projects more easily and with more accuracy; • Be present to the people that are in front of you (without your devices interrupting) so you can create true relationships. Reclaim your superpower: discover simple mindfulness tools and meditation techniques that train your attention and enhance your ability to be more present, self-aware, and focused.

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.

A Photographic Exploration of the Power of Yoga to Unite People Across Cultural and Physical Divides - Robert Sturman
Join world-renowned artist/photographer, Robert Sturman, as he and his camera take us around the globe. This photographic exploration highlights the power of yoga to unite people across cultural and physical divides. Sturman’s work has given him the opportunity to make art with yogis in Kenya, Italy, Thailand, Israel, Cuba, to name but a few. From United States prisons to orphanages in Africa and the streets of Palestine, he has photographed all walks of life, embodying yoga poses with equanimity and grace. 

So many people, so many stories: breast cancer survivors, Maasai Warriors, Hasidic Jews, police officers, soldiers and inmates serving life sentences,each one a unique expression of humanity.

"For me, making art is about much more than a pretty picture. My responsibility as an artist is to capture the intrinsic beauty and irreducible value of every subject, to awaken compassion and to use art to inspire humanity to move forward, reaching towards our greatest potential.”

Robert will also be sharing a few secrets on how to make powerful, poetic images, celebrating the beautiful art of yoga. One of these secrets is already within your grasp, as many of his published works have been captured through the lens of his phone.
