Listening is a subtle art form at the root of spiritual practice and harmonious human relations. As such, it is both an outward facing and inward facing function. As listening deepens it becomes a singular process of bringing awareness to the entirety of an experience.

When Guru Nanak, founder of Sikh Dharma, came out of samadhi, he spoke 36 stanzas of which four were about listening. Each stanza concludes with: Deeply listening, sorrows and errors depart

The implication is that when we listen deeply enough all things merge into singularity. Or, put more simply, we cultivate an understanding and acceptance of every situation based on the interrelatedness of all existence - thus all sorrows and errors depart.  

But… how does one cultivate this quality of listening? The first step is to recognize that listening is a practice. It is a relational practice not unlike meditation that requires consistent effort, practice, and even study to truly master. In this workshop, you will learn:

  • The building blocks of a listening process that will help you become a much better listener

  • To observe your internal experience during a conversation in a way that will significantly expand your ability to communicate and be present

  • Simple daily practices that will help you improve your listening

A Kundalini Yoga course for a new understanding of your mind, its powers and perils, and how you can apply it to create peace, health, and happiness instead of stress, anxiety, and destruction

What is the mind and what does it do? Hardly anyone, including scientists and health-care professionals has definite answers to these fundamental questions. However, yogic teachings provide amazing insights and fill the gaps that Western science hasn’t reached yet.

Does your mind act like a gracious servant or a disobedient child? Yogi Bhajan says the mind was given to us as a servant of our soul, but very few people have a truly functional relationship with their minds. Instead, the mind has taken over inside of us and the world at large. Incessant thinking and identification with thought are the norm, cutting us off from life itself—and high levels of stress, anxiety, and destruction are a direct result.

This course is designed to help you understand and break the dominance of the mind and make it your friend instead of an enemy. We will explore ancient yogic teachings that are the source of true health and happiness, while manifesting beauty and prosperity. We will learn and practice techniques to heal our mental and physical health, our environments, and the planet.

 Topics include:

  • Yogic Anatomy of the Mind - What, where, why is it?

  • Intuition versus Intellect - Thoughts and Emotions.

  • Incessant thinking - Ways to stop and heal.

  • The Process of Manifestation - A basic human capacity.

  • Mind-made realities - Trouble or Paradise?

  • Identifying the work of the mind in your life.

  • The ego and its games.

  • Types of Meditation & Tools for taming the mind.

  • Yoga for creating a new foundation of mind and spirit.

For all levels. Please wear comfortable clothes for yoga and meditation and bring a pen and notebook.

Spring Training! A Prosperity Workshop w/ Sarah Padmani Ajeet

Cost: $66

Spring forward out of winters hibernation and get moving towards abundance.

We will explore 25-30 minute bursts of high-intensity aerobics. These kriyas propel us forward, providing us the energy needed to hold onto our blessings. Then we will dive deep into the prosperity teachings of Yogi Bhajan and meditate to integrate them on a cellular level.

“Green energy” emanates from anahata; our heart center. Green symbolizes nature’s growth, health, and prosperity. When we meditate from the heart we are fully able to tap into our own life force. This is what enables us to manifest abundance and prosperity.

Connect to the flow of opportunities coming your way when you activate the heart center and go fearlessly deep into your own unique prosperity.

Bring a notebook, pen, water bottle, and comfortable workout clothes.
