SRI SUKTA CHANT GROUP - NO CHARGE with Crystal Hanson Next held on Wed, Nov 21, 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.

Tantra Festival with Souvik Dutta Sun, Dec 2, 2018 at 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
This workshop will provide you with the foundation of the Tantra philosophy, the building blocks of the science of Mantras and an introduction to one of the best remedial measures known to ancient sages – Yantras. The workshop will begin with an introduction of Chakras and Chakra letters in Sanskrit. The “why” behind the particular beejas of the letters will be explained and then a basic of Sanskrit alphabets will be introduced. Case studies of two mantras will be discussed in the workshop. Next the basis of remedial measures will be discussed in the workshop with reference to Yantras. Two case studies of Yantras will be discussed in detail to demonstrate the foundation of the Yantras. Tantra is a vast ocean of wisdom so the topic of Mudras and the body will be discussed with emphasis on the energy each finger has. Case studies of 3-4 mudras will be discussed in detail. “Mananat-trayate iti Mantrah”. Anything that protects the mind is mantra, anything that protects the body is Tantra, and anything that helps a multitude of people is Yantra.

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

To be a Sacred Activist is to be and to continually work towards becoming a force of compassion in action. Sacred Activism at Perennial, which Perennial's founder Megan Grace is mid-wifing, is destined to become part of the bedrock of our community. Megan believes her soul's purpose in creating Perennial was to contribute to, in her own small but hopefully significant way, the birth of a community filled with passionate people who are ready and able to co-create with the Divine. Our monthly Sacred Activism Circle brings together women and men who are ready to ignite and nurture their healing energy and transmit it out into the world in the form of loving thoughts, words and actions. What happens at a Circle? As you enter our Earth Studio you'll step into a large grounding bowl that sends a healing and opening vibration through you. 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.

In yoga, as well as in astrology, the sun symbolizes the soul. The word, “solstice,” in Latin, means sun standing still. The Winter Solstice marks the day with the shortest amount of daylight and longest night: A brief time of pause. Winter is a time of introspection and self-care yet, this time of reflection can slow us to the point of feeling stuck. How do we ignite our fire to boost our immunity while aligning with the season? Erin & Vanessa will lead you through a heart-opening and soul igniting workshop. Erin Frey, RYT 200 and Vanessa Teff, RYT 200 both received their yoga training through Meg Galarza, E-RYT 500 at YogaOne in Milwaukee, WI. They teach throughout the greater Madison & Lake Mills communities. With their liked minded perspective, Erin & Vanessa seek to blend the essence of yoga and Ayurveda in order to help others find balance within their lives.
