6p: Satsang & Bhakti Kirtan w/ Krishnadas Sharma & Madhuri
Bhakti & Japa: Bhakti is the Yoga of Devotion, known as the surest path to Self-Actualization & God-realization. Bhakti is the natural flow of love in and out of the heart when we are able to let go of those things that no longer serve our highest well being. Japa is the recognition of the gentle voice of the heart that turns the search for happiness from being a "search" to an "embrace". No exp necessary. Bhakti Kirtan is in call & response style and uplifts the heart & soul!
7:30p: 55 Tibetan Bowls & Raw Cacao w/ Dr. Dream
We will have 55 Tibetan Bowls from the Gilung & Sindupalachoka Villages in Nepal. We are supporting these villages in recovering and rebuilding their homes and lives after the 2015 earthquakes. Be a part of this truly unique experience, using these hand crafted sound tools that will wash over your being and expand your consciousness.
In addition to including our high-frequency, rose essential oil and 6 other oils, and 7 chakra chocolates, Dr. DREAM and his Band of Angels will have a selection of 55 Tibetan Bowls (Master Healer grade) at this event.
8a: Morning Mantra & Surya Namaskar w/ Bharati*
Where thoughts go, energy follows. Set the mind to a higher vibrational state, begin to re-map your brain and let sacred chant replace the endless chatter. Your mind will thank you.... eventually!
Then flow through the Sun Salutations and learn the mantras for each of 12 postures. Deepen your worship of Sun, Divine Power, of these beautiful qualities in you!
3p: Moon Magick & Manifestation w/ Jimmy Clark
This program is designed to help you understand how to utilize lunar cycles, Lore, and astrology to create “Magick” in your lives, through the specific Art and practice of “Manifestation Journaling”.
A wealth of information on Magick and Journaling is provided, including prompts applying to exercises for the purpose of Life Planning, Scheduling, and Goal Identification, Implementation, and Achievement.
For this workshop, the Magick of the September "Corn Moon" (also known sometimes as the Harvest Moon) in conjunction with the Waning Crescent Moon will be explored. Topics, information and discussions will be centered around themes of Release and Celebration. Being that the Autumn Equinox will be upon us as well, additional attention will be given to *looking ahead towards the final 1/4 of the year, and preparing for it's conclusion*.
5p: Medicinals in Sacred Practice w/ Dan de Lion
Join Dan for this Plant Sense meditation class and be guided to go in depth & discover your own intuitive and instinctual read-out on a plants medicinal effects. Dan will bring a wild crafted herbal tea to drink and take participants through a process of step-by-step inquiry as to “what the plant does” to each student.
This practice enables one to wake up their senses to know how both foods, and herbs effect them on a subtle energetic and physical level. Bring your own special or ceremonial mug and a notebook and pen to write down your impressions.
