HOW TO DEEPEN YOUR SADHANA

READY TO BECOME AN AYURVEDA ENTHUSIAST

While we are alive and conscious, this is the time to live life to the fullest in each and every moment. When we can dissolve thoughts and feelings of fear and limitation and focus on the beauty around us, life starts to become more precious and enjoyable. True freedom starts coming into grasp.

In my work with clients, the conversation often arises around: what nourishes you or depletes you? When you are in any given scenario where you must choose which food to eat, which activity to engage in, or which social movement to participate in, pause, drop inward for a moment and feel: will this substance or activity nourish or deplete me? In a flash, you will know. This is your inner knowing. It is not a place of political correctness. It is not to please others. It is to honor your deep wisdom and act from that place. This is true nourishment. Your birthright. I honour you and your choices.

Some of the areas we give attention to include: optimal digestion, sleep, immunity, hormones, emotions, and life path / dharma. Some examples of suggestions may include: specific foods, spices, teas, herbal supplements, yoga poses, breath practices, skin care, massage, cleansing and shifting certain paradigms / attitude / old belief systems.

It's all about getting to the heart of what you are here to do and how you are going to care for yourself along the way. Make a shift now, it is timely!

Fee: $42.00

THE STUDY OF RAHU AND KETU

Befriending the Nodes, the Shadow planets in our Lives. This 90 minute virtual workshop will illumine the workings of the North (RAHU) and South (KETU) nodes of the Moon, in our Vedic charts and lives. Shri Harish Johari, my principle Vedic teacher, considered RAHU the driving wheel of our karma and KETU the most dangerous, as it is the most unbounded of the planetary influences. Both nodes operate in everyone's life and to have an understanding as to how these shadowy grahas operate, can provide great benefit and navigation tools. They are more potent when unrealized and psychologically unexplored, as they bring the most dramatic karma into manifestation. This karma can be mitigated thru the practise of mantra, yantra and tantra, which will be offered in the form of astral remedies during the workshop. RAHU/KETU have already significantly re-designed our lives and global reality in 2020. They will continue to impact both our personal lives, as well trigger global events. RAHU and KETU in their new position astrologically in the Zodiac will be transiting TAURUS and SCORPIO for a long one and a half years starting September 23rd, 2020 - and are worthy of our attention. Learn how they will affect you and the world.

Fee: $42.00

ASTRO NUMEROLOGY INTENSIVE

Comprehensive instruction in the mantra, yantra and tantra studies of the Sanatan path of planetary Yoga. This five day intensive is based on the premise that the planets are relay stations for the reception and transmission of celestial energies that affect our every thought and deed. The nine Luminaries bring the forces of the galaxy alive in us and direct our path of evolution. Each planet contains a portion of the cosmic rainbow ray, upholding its vibration in our solar system. Our karmas, in accordance with our birth chart, and how they ripen in this lifetime will determine the state of our consciousness, our gains and losses, our successes and trials. Most of our relationships are according to planetary affinities. Most of our actions are governed by the nature of the planet that dominates our celestial blue print and karmic template. Once we understand the meaning and nature of the planetary attributes we can make more intelligent choices participating in the cosmic leela and comprehend the possibilities of this precious human life.

Numerology and astrology within the context of healing and practices will be studied in depth. The course is balanced between theory and practice of the Vedic tradition. Ayurveda, Upayas and Self help remedials are offered to assist the student to revitalize his/her life and be a clear agent of support and knowledge for others.

Prerequisite: basic understanding of yoga and healing, a sincere commitment to self transformation and becoming a metaphysician for personal and collective peace. Request a detailed syllabus.

Fee : $1164.00

21 DAYS PANCHA KARMA

Look after your body or you will have nowhere to live.

The most exciting news is that I will be taking a small group to the south of India for the month of February 2021 (includes SHIVARATRI ceremonies), to experience a full immersion Pancha Karma purification in a remote location on holy ground. Daily medical consultations by a highly gifted world renowned Vaidya, strictly ayurvedic treatments, yoga, pranayama, meditation and only light sattvic cuisine or fasting to support the cellular detoxification process resulting in a balance of your doshas and supreme equanimity, a lightness of being. Kindly connect right away as the spots are truly few, limited rooms already. You can only benefit from aligning with this intent and preparing well to immerse yourself deeply in a body/mind detox that will be unique and unforgettable and continue to become your best old age health insurance. Pre-registration open NOW!

I am inviting spiritually mature, emotionally self sufficient and responsible friends to apply immediately.

Rather than seeing the body as a complex machine that has somehow learned to think, AYURVEDA understands that we are non - material beings that created our bodies.
~ Paul Dugliss M.D. from: Ayurveda and the Yoga of Emotions

Health does not merely mean the state of not having a disease. Ayurveda considers health to be a balanced state of constitution (dosha), metabolic fire (agni), bodily tissues (dhatu), and waste processes (mala). Health is where soul (atma), all senses (indriya), and mind (manasa) remain connected in an excellent state of happiness.

Kindly enquire for more information, an application form and all logistical details.
Registration deadline, July 24th 2020 to guarantee your room.

 


A Time for Healing

Lotus In everyone's life span comes a time of crisis and with it a time for healing. The crisis is rarely decided upon, although many omens leading up to same are oftentimes ignored until the actual shock hits. Pain, loss, grief and sadness appear suddenly and with it the choice and options to constructively yield to the inevitable. A time for healing however is a focused intent. It is a mindful choice to connect with ones higher purpose to embrace the soul's journey, salute the spirit in ones existence with wisdom and compassion. It is time to become sensitive to the hidden aspects of oneself and the larger human community. To realize ones mortality and become acutely aware of the human condition we all share here in earth school. To accept and transcend the dramas of everyday life and instead more fully embrace the dance of the great mystery of human life.

It is time to release the patterns of the past and not fret about the future. To slow down sufficiently to re-connect with ones breath, the earth, her seasons and cycles, to find beauty in small treasures. To put ones mind in ones feet and walk more caringly on the earthmother and draw healing from the very matrix of the universe. To enhance ones spiritual perception, become open to magic and small pleasures and to re-assess ones practical needs. To celebrate the soul's awakening in a more creatively expressive way, to claim ones autonomy and be taught by ones ancient inner knowing.

This can happen in many ways. A healing time is a time of profound personal empowerment. To decidedly commit to be living from within a sacred space at all times and attuned to ones soul purpose. "Everything that lives wants attention, and the human soul is no exception - it thrives when it knows itself perceived with compassion and reverence." When I work with a person, I attempt to look at their soul self and observe the direction it wishes to move in. Then I look at the self-created obstructions in the body-mind dynamics that block the soul's free movement. If the person is willing to transform and able to commit to a healing journey, I support them in recognizing their soul's desire and via various immune enhancing tools guide them into the perceptual shape shifting needed to come to the next level of beingness in their evolutionary cycle. To open to personal alchemy. To grow beyond what they know themselves to be thus far.

Thought this process is essentially simple, it is sometimes challenging and sometimes great, depending on the rigidity and clinging of the person's mental pattern and their subsequent emotional entanglements. In my work as a healer my biggest task is to encourage the person to invite themselves into a healing time. To cross over the bridges of fear, worry, disease and confusions that prevent them from living full, happy and healthy lives. To understand the necessity for beauty, play, ceremony, retreats and healing holidays. To not see this as a luxury or as frivolous, not as selfish, not as crazy. So many times I am confronted with clients agreeing that my suggestions of perhaps taking a vision quest, of moving to a brighter home, of enrolling in an art course of their choice, of committing to ongoing therapy for a while, of taking the trip to the Caribbean they always dreamed of, are a good idea, but for reasons connected with old worn out patterns of self limitation they are unable to jump into the abyss of the unknown and risk facing their new self. It is almost tragic. Time and time again I witness people stuck in judgement, constriction and non-trust of the universal resources, when they are within an inch of opening to a healing time for themselves. Perhaps for the first time and perhaps for the best time in their lives. Inner work bears fruit when spiritual perception is brought into the everyday activities and during a healing time a person's soul has a rare and wonderfully unique opportunity to become attuned to their true destiny and be more fully human. A healing time is a turning point in a human life span. In my work with people suffering from all kinds of immune disorders, I have learned that the immune system is strongly affected by feelings and that taking certain kinds of action, such as entering a committed healing time, can affect the immune system positively.

There are now multiple options to awaken the possible human. To enter a discovery process about wholeness and the journey of healing. For many, it is as simple as to just keep laughing in the face of their perceived obstacles, to discover the fire in the belly and the spirit of soul in their eyes and the eyes of the world. To insist on hope and recovery. To creatively engage the imagination so it may revitalize the body. For others it may take the form of a meditation retreat, of time in the wilderness, of moving to an urban area, of simplifying their lifestyle or letting go of people and places one has outgrown a long time ago. For some a dream vacation to a place of empowerment may serve as the catalyst for a healing time, and for most it is just sufficient to break out of the mold of their perceived persona and release the mind mesh that entraps them. A healing time is a time of purification, a time of rebirth, a time of coming into the grace of ones place in creation. It is available to us all.
