Yogananda recommended using daily self-reflection as a way to cultivate positive intentions and preserve positive memories– to consciously cut new “grooves” in the brain. Recent research bears out the notion that we really can help our brain to change in positive ways. New research also confirms the therapeutic benefits journaling.
Now teachers Rebecca Davis and Mona Williams combine forces to share fun and inspiring ways to use visual journaling–journaling that involves both words and images–to practice self-reflection in a way that fosters intention, intuition, and joy.
In this workshop we will explore how the practice of asana, pranayama, and meditation can help us awaken the heart qualities of gratitude, surrender and devotion, tuning into using our practice as a dynamic self-offering of our spinal energies to the spiritual eye, the seat of higher consciousness at the point between the eyebrows.
