Confronting Challenge: A Workshop for Men
Apr

Confronting Challenge: A Workshop for Men

To live a spiritually rich life as men does not mean that we have to be passive pushovers.  We can be in command of our lives.  Even while we’re in the thick of challenge, stressful situations, or around pain and suffering (our own or others), we can develop a more spacious point of view.  When circumstance calls for ferocity, we can train ourselves to act from our depths, a place of compassionate authenticity.

In this workshop, you will learn practical ways to:

  • Cultivate a relaxed and focused baseline
  • Expand your comfort zone
  • Stay in your center when challenged
  • Respond with flexibility, based on context
  • Relinquish being “right” and show up to meet what’s right in front of you NOW


 

Aaron Angel practices and teaches karma yoga, the yoga of action, which stresses the value of practicing awareness in all of your life circumstances and relationships.  With the goal of expanding his comfort zone (and under the guidance of the teachings of Ram Dass), Aaron has been volunteering with hospice patients through MJHS, and taught yoga at the in-patient psychiatric unit at NYU Lutheran Medical Center for the past year and a half.  Aaron has had the privilege to volunteer at Sloan Kettering, working with pediatric cancer patients, to teach yoga in a juvenile detention center in the Bronx, and to work at an independent home for developmentally disabled (Bais Ezra).  He lives with his radiant wife Keely, beautiful daughter Jaya, and frisky cat Meows.

New Moon Community Acupuncture & Gong Bath

Come join Carla & Amanbir for a special gathering on the day of the new moon.   Proceeds from this event will go towards the Medical Outreach in Uganda, East Africa.   This is to offer free medical check-ups, consultations, minor and major surgical operations, health education and medicines to thousands of impoverished Ugandans who have limited access to health care facilities and specialized care due to lack of funds and being too far away from any medical facilities.

We will begin with a light kundalini Kriya to open the channels followed by a meditation to tap into the depths of the Scorpio New Moon.  This will be followed by a hour gong.  Kundalini acupuncture sessions will be offered during the gong bath and will last approximately 30 minutes per participant.  

Kundalini Acupuncture uses the elements of sacred geometry and Taoist principles to raise consciousness.  In higher consciousness, there is a greater capacity to heal ourselves.
