I can’t even tell you how excited I am to be presenting this program at Kripalu Center in October. It is literally a dream come true!
My history with Kripalu goes back many decades….so far in fact that it certainly does seem as though destiny has had a hand in everything. I received their very first catalog in the mail sometime in the late 80’s. But it wasn’t until circa 1992 that I walked thru the door. I was a full-time, frustrated, stressed out Real Estate Broker & Trainer then. It was August and I was taking The Mystical Path of Yoga with Yoganand. on the recommendation of my local yoga teacher. Nearly everyone but me in the program was a working yoga teacher. It was an unexpected life-changing experience . My real interest in going was to meet the guru, Amrit Desai, but, that wouldn’t happen until 2017,. Still, yoga became an integral part of my life from that point forward.
When I arrived, the receptionist asked me about my employment and I declared at that moment I was an astrologer. It wasn’t a lie. I had a small, side gig going on offering Feng Shui & Astrological Consults. My expertise in Feng Shui made being in the RE industry tolerable and provided many unusual opportunities to teach, consult, and do research on the art/science. My avocation was preferable to my vocation.
Over the next 25+ years I returned to Kripalu Center so often I probably should have moved there! My Karma Yoga included many different jobs, ie. yoga teacher, facilitator, a/v assistant, musician. I took over 1000 hrs of YTT and worked as a faculty assistant to the many different Yoga presenters that taught at Kripalu .
All said, it was my work within the Inner Quest Intensive under the direction of Aruni Nan Futuronsky that has informed my own teaching of yoga & yoga therapy. Through my experiences facilitating that program I became particularly interested in yoga (therapy) for mental health, recovery, and spiritual development. I’ve written a lot of short stories detailing many of my experiences along this Sun/Jupiter line and I look forward to more to tell.
So now, I get to present my own program, which literally took a saturn cycle to imagine, create, and now finally deliver. I hope you’ll check it out and share the news with like-minded friends.
It’s a program for everyone and you don’t need to know much of anything about astrology or yoga to take it.
The topics we cover are universal; birth/death/loss/fate/change/relationships/health/spirituality. Life, as it is. All that is needed is curiosity and a desire to know yourself better.
Possibilities for healing, personal growth, expanded consciousness, spiritual development are inherent in the work.
At the very least you’ll come home with a new plan for time management and stress relief.
