"You are the teacher, you are the first instruction.  What a mother teaches a child in the womb can not be learned on earth."- Yogi Bhajan

 

This class is designed for all levels of experience and stages of pregnancy and will offer tools to balance, align and strengthen body mind and spirit.  Using yoga asana, pranayama, meditation and fellowship we will create a safe and inspiring community to support our shared goals of embodied and joyful motherhood.  Women will learn to connect with their inner capacity for joy, strength and reverence for the childbearing years.  

Benefits of Pre-Natal Yoga:

  • Increases flexibility and strength.
  • Supports the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Some yoga poses can optimize your baby's position for an easier birth.
  • Practicing Yoga while pregnant has been linked to fewer complications.

The Blockbuster: Breaking through Karmic Squares

  • Westways Sanctuary

With Guru Dharam

The greatest challenges in your life are caused by Karmic squares which exert a controlling influence on your circumstances.

These squares are created by the Samskaric residues from the previous lives which are your personal karmic narrative and which now form the features of both your inner and outer lives. Spiritual practice is a directed accelerant of your personal process to move through obstacles while cultivating the pure potential of Emptiness.
Kundalini Shakti shows us how to use the momentum of the moment to break the lock of karma using the power of your Creative and Projective force.

Clear blocks known and unknown from your energy field. Then harmony, tranquility and what the ancients called 'Gods Speed' can prevail in your life.
A Kundalini Shakti presentation with Guru Dharam.

$45 exchange (for those not enrolled in the current Teacher Training being held at Westways / for those currently enrolled in TT, this workshop is included in your tuition and you need not register).

Kundalini Rebirth: Medicine for the Soul

Master Class with Guru Dharam

When we generate more Karma in our life narrative than we can effectively neutralize with Dharmic activity, the collective weight of parental projection, our restrictive attitudes of self-limitation and our samskaric load create a gravitational pull that constricts our capacity to accomplish our Destiny mission and excel.  The Rebirthing Kriyas give us a methodology for core transformation and the momentum to break through the cocoon that holds us.  Experience the source of psycho-spiritual intervention that demonstrates the wisdom of the Rishis and their sublime understanding of Kundalini Medicine.

Blue Deer Drums - Drum Making Ceremony

  • Westways Sanctuary

The drum is a sacred tool that has been used by many cultures from around the world to connect us to our heart, the earth, the cosmos, and spirit.  It is considered to be a medicine in itself which has the ability to help us heal ourselves and others by bringing the body and spirit into its natural rhythm.  The beat of the drum has the power to bring people into deep states of meditation and is used often in shamanic journey work.   

 

During the course of this ceremony you will create your own drum from start to finish.  Through focused intention and prayer we will paint our frames and tie our drums.  We will share songs and learn how to use and take care of the drum during the course of this gathering.  At the end you will have a beautiful instrument that will be a companion on your spiritual path for years to come. 

 

This workshop will be lead by Matt Canale, founder of Blue Deer Drums, and members of the Golden Drum community.  Participants can choose between 16 or 18 inch maple drum frames and select from Deer, Buffalo or Elk skin.  

 

Registration and Payment of $300 is due by October 7.

 

***Please Bring a Vegetarian Dish to share for our lunch break and plenty of snacks to keep you satisfied throughout the day.
