The Spring Equinox is a time when night and day stand equal. There is a balance of light and dark before we tip further into the solar energy leading up to the Summer Solstice.
This is an important time to plant seeds and to also celebrate the rebirth of Spring!
Through this special class we will be joined by Dandelion to help journey to our deepest intention or sankalpa, and plant it within the subconscious – a place where fertilization of this seed can come to consciousness and being.
Herbal tinctures will be provided to help connect with the Dandelion plant.
Cost of a regular class ($18 drop in).
Heart Connection Workshop
Did you know that the heart has an electromagnetic field that extends 8-10 feet from the body and is 5,000 times stronger than the field produced from the brain? (HeartMath Institute)
The heart is our primary sense organ and often that sensory experience is overlooked or overruled by the brain.
What happens when we actually tap into the power of our heart?
We are designed have constant communication between the heart center, the rest of the body, and the brain.
When we learn to be in connection with the heart, stay with the sensory experience, and allow the heart to show us ways of connecting – with ourselves, our true spirit, and others – the power of the heart can become limitless, accepting, and open.
This workshop will allow you to understand your own heart and how it works in relation to others, decision-making, and living your life in an embodied way.
In this workshop we will:
- discuss a foundational overview of the heart from a yoga, chakra and scientific perspective
- experience a cycle of attunement to help embody sensing from the heart
- move through some yoga postures to explore your personal heart balance (and potential imbalance)
- discover what messages the heart has for you through a deep meditation practice
- connect with another participant in a heart-exploration exercise
