SEPTEMBER 13-15, 2019   INQUIRE WITHIN-Weekend Retreat                                 

Self Study or Svadaya in Sanskrit,  refers to the practice of introspection and the ‘study of the self’.  It encourages one to practice awareness and self-reflection.  The goal of this program, if there were one, would be to know our true/authentic self; the part beyond personality, thoughts, body or emotions.

My intention as facilitator is bring in alignment various  yoga (therapy) practices and cosmic forces to create optimal conditions for expanded self-awareness.  Transformation, healing, or enlightenment are also possible side effects.

The location for our program has been a gathering place for astrologers  and Vedic scholars from around the world for decades.  It’s a spiritual place. Although I understand and use the Vedic system myself, these programs mostly focus on the outer planets, which are not recognized in the that system.  Ergo, I welcome all to come, learn, practice, and grow.  More and more information will be posted as we closer to the time.

Experiential portions of this program include: Asana, pranayama, mudra, yoga nidra, meditation, chant, integrative breathwork (optional, depending on content) art, journaling, expressive movement, dyads & storytelling. Hatha yoga and experience with astrology is not necessary. The practices will be gentle & challenging at the same time. Experiences and insights that stimulate the mind-body-spirit connection can be profoundly transformational. Inner space explorations of outer space can at times stir up the unconscious and help us to see places we don’t often visit consciously.

Upcoming Programs here:

Inquire Within© An Experiential Course of Self-Study using Yoga Therapy & Astrology
The intention for this work is to bring cosmic forces, yoga practices, and healing energies into time/space alignment in order to provide a transformational/healing experience for the participants.

Astrology looks at the world thru a lens that has no prejudice. It does not see: gender, race, religion, economic status, socio/cultural differences, sexual orientation, political affiliation or any of the ways in which we categorize or label ourselves. What astrology does see and describe is priceless towards understanding our ‘energetic’ composition and the timing of unfoldment. The ‘how’ and ‘what’ is up to us. Free will exists and so does destiny and fate.  When approached with compassion, equanimity and non-judgment the natal horoscope becomes an impartial map of probability and possibility with a built-in clock to help one plan for the future. For many, it’s the key to understanding and acceptance of the present moment. The spiritual path of Astrology helps us understand the nature of our particular ego-state, the obstacles that impede us and the actions and attitudes we must take to achieve our dharma.

Yoga provides us with tools, techniques, and a philosophy to help us be with our moment in peaceful co-existence. Yoga teaches us how to smooth out obstacles, minimize the ego drives and approach life’s challenges in peace. Where astrology provides us with the nature of the ever-changing present moment, Yoga gently trains us to respond to that ever-changing moment with acceptance & compassion. Both advance us towards wholeness, well-being, enlightened consciousness and spiritual awakening.

The integration of astrology and yoga can open up channels in the body like magic. These experiential programs unite mind & body. The benefits are felt physically, mentally and spiritually.  We get clear.  Our intuitive, psychic, creative, & spiritual abilities are part of our everyday existence with Knowledge & Wisdom as natural byproducts. Astrology learned in this way becomes a direct, physical experience that supersedes mind/intellect alone.  Yoga learned in this way connects us to the higher realms in safe and meaningful ways.

 

Inquire Within© is offered in a variety of formats suitable for groups or individuals.  Private Sessions, Workshops & Retreats are available.   Intensives offer a ‘deep practice’ experience and require registration.   An Advanced Yoga Teacher -Training Program is in progress. Each program has a specific topic.  We discuss  the astrology of it and how it shows up (behaviorally & symbolically) in our lives.  Using our individual natal charts. we can then practice yoga, on and off the mat, to integrate the information.

Experiential portions of this program include: Asana, pranayama, mudra, yoga nidra, meditation, chant, integrative breathwork, art, journaling, expressive movement, dyads & storytelling. Some hatha yoga experience is recommended but not necessary. Our practices will be gentle & challenging at the same time. Experiences and insights that stimulate the mind-body-spirit connection can be profoundly transformational. Inner space explorations of outer space can at times stir up the unconscious and help us to see places we don’t often visit consciously. Be ready.

Longer intensives feature Integrated Breathwork.  When led by an experienced and seasoned facilitator this experience can be profound.  It is recommended that you have some experience with hatha yoga (asana and pranayama) to participate.  The posture flows are  gentle and suitable for all bodies and abilities.
