SRI SUKTA CHANT GROUP - FREE with Crystal Hanson Next held on Wed, Sep 26, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm
This enrollment runs from Wed Aug 29, 2018 - Wed Aug 28, 2019
Humanity has endured cycles of prosperity and impoverishment, peace and darkness, ingenuity and stagnation, spirituality and science, for centuries. Where we are today in this process of growth and decline may be seen as we observe—both externally and internally—the qualities of fear, anger, sorrow, and greed, and their proportionate interplay with those of love, compassion, and joy. Now is the perfect time for aspiring souls who believe in the power of collective consciousness—one that is positive, vibrant, and focused, and fills our consciousness with inner abundance and fulfillment—to take personal yoga practice to the next level. Every Wednesday evening from 6-6:30pm there will be a Ganesh Group session open for EVERYONE to come and chant the Sri Sukta. No need to have it memorized, there will handouts and an experienced leader or a recording. People from all over the globe are reciting the Sri Sukta daily to encourage positive change within each individual and in our world.  Come, chant and be part of the healing of this world.

Havan: Fire Ceremony with Crystal Hanson Wed, Oct 3, 2018 at 6:00 pm - 6:45 pm
Havan is an ancient Vedic Fire Ceremony that is still practiced today, especially in India.
In course of the fire ceremony, sacred verses, or mantras are chanted. Sri Sukta will be chanted at this havan to invoke the Divine Mother Sri who is a source of abundance, beauty, auspiciousness and prosperity of all types. The 16 mantra verses of Sri Sukta will be recited for the nurturing and support of both our spiritual and worldly endeavors.
Before the havan a samagri: a specific mix of pure designated ingredients will be mindfully prepared. The samagri may include black sesame seeds, ghee, grains, etc. Small amounts of the samagri will be offered to the fire during the ceremony at the end of each verse as participants chant: Svaha which means “I offer or give away” “let it be so” “I pray it be so”. The samagri is consumed and transformed within the flames of the fire. The fire is left to finish burning and end on its own time.

All are welcome at this Havan. Free and Open to Everyone.
Come and share in this ancient tradition.
Wednesday, October 3rd 6-6:45pm

BOOK DISCUSSION | The Seat Of The Soul with Tracy Traeder Next held on Wed, Oct 3, 2018 at 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm
This enrollment runs from Wed Oct 3, 2018 - Wed Oct 10, 2018
With lucidity and elegance, Zukav explains that we are evolving from a species that uses power as the ability to manipulate and control—external power—into a species that understands power as the alignment of the personality with the soul—authentic power. Our evolution requires each of us to make the values of the soul our own: harmony, cooperation, sharing, and reverence for Life. With his scientist’s eye and philosopher’s heart, Zukav shows how infusing our actions with compassion and trust gives them meaning and purpose. He illustrates how the emerging values of the spirit are changing marriages into soulful partnerships, psychology into thoughtful analysis, and deeply affecting our everyday lives.

AQUARIAN GROUP SADHANA with Amy Walden Sat, Oct 13, 2018 at 5:30 am - 8:00 am
Join us the second Saturday of each month for the Aquarian Group Sadhana. Yogi Bhajan spoke of a time in history when our trust in the technology of Kundalini Yoga would be put to the test. That time is now. Conscious communication, strong nerves and a calm heart will allow us to successfully navigate the seas of change. We gather in the amrit vela (early morning hours) for a devotional group practice – to recite Japji, move with the breath and chant the Aquarian Mantras. This monthly event is free and open to all. Please arrive by 5:15 am to get settled. The practice starts promptly at 5:30 am and ends at 8:00 am. We adjourn to the Surya Café for breakfast and fellowship.

The Story of Yoga: A 2,500-year Visual and Textual History with Seth Powell Sat, Oct 13, 2018 at 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This session provides you with a foundational overview and the “big picture” of the history of yoga. Drawing on the latest scholarship in yoga studies, together we will journey from yoga’s shrouded origins as an ascetic tradition in ancient India, to the emergence of postural yoga in the West and around the globe—an incredible journey that takes us from the periphery of premodern Indian civilization to the center of modern American health and wellness! Along the way we will explore attempts to define “yoga”, the relationship between yoga philosophy and practice, the origins and history of yogic āsanas, the multi-billion dollar commercialization of India’s largest religio-cultural export, and much more. Debunking common misperceptions about yoga’s antiquity, we will uncover the incredible ways yoga has changed, innovated, and been adopted by millions of practitioners over the past 2,500 years!

The Yoga of Action & Devotion: The Bhagavadgītā with Seth Powell Sun, Oct 14, 2018 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
In this workshop Seth Powell will read, chant, and explore the Bhagavadgītā, or the “Song of the Lord” — one of the great Sanskrit yoga texts of classical India. Through this timeless dialogue between Krishna and Arjuna—teacher and student, God and devotee—we are gifted a spiritual excursus on the meaning of life, the nature of yoga, one’s social and moral duty (dharma), devotion (bhakti), and ethical action (karma) in the world. The Gītā offers two of the earliest definitions of yoga in a Sanskrit text, both of which we will explore, in addition to the following models of yoga: Karmayoga (“the yoga of action”), Dhyānayoga (“the yoga of meditation”), Jñānayoga (“the yoga of gnosis”), and Bhaktiyoga (“the yoga of devotion”). Unlike more ascetic models of classical Yoga which ask of the yogin to retreat from the world, the Gītā’s universal message promotes a social ethic of engaging in the world through yogic practice, by turning all of one’s activities into yogic service and devotion. We will reflect on the relationship between the Gītā and the Yogasūtra, and moreover, contemplate its relation to our own lives and yoga practice.

CIRCLE OF SACRED ACTIVISM with Megan Grace Wed, Oct 17, 2018 at 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm

Then you'll lie down, propped by bolsters and blankets, and take a journey deep into yourSelf with a Yoga Nidra and loving kindness meditation guided by Megan Grace. Throughout your journey Shari Henning sends the enchanting and healing sounds of singing bowls into the space. Yoga Nidra is the "sleep" of yoga. It is a very relaxing and grounding practice that does not include any physical practice.    Cost:  No Charge | A Sacred Activism Initiative
