Retreat into the heart of Self through the Chakras
As we go deeper into Fall and away from the frenzied activities of Summer, it presents us with the perfect opportunity to go inward and reap the benefits of all the efforts we’ve poured into the year since January. The ancient practices of Yoga are a powerful way of casting off the noise of day-to-day routines, and find that place of dynamic inward calmness from which comes intuitive guidance. The seven energy centers – or chakras – as they are called in Sanskrit – govern various aspects of our physical and emotional states. Two of these chakras – the anantata (heart) and ajna (point between the eyebrows) – are particularly important for tuning into intuitive guidance.
Join us for this mini-retreat where we learn to increase our awareness of these two energy centers. We will use Yoga poses to awaken the energy in these chakras; pranayama and mudras (techniques to move energy) to move this energy inward; and chanting and meditation to focus it at the point of superconsciousness at the Spiritual Eye. We will then use visualizations to tune into inner guidance.
The retreat is suitable for all levels. It is led by Murali Venkatrao and Vahini Sleighter.
