Saturday, Nov 16   1pm-5pm

Sunday, Nov 17  10am-1pm 

Our workshops this weekend are designed to be taken together.   Sunday will complete Saturday’s inquiry.  That said, you are welcome to attend one or both.  During these half-day workshops a topic will be introduced (chosen according to the astrology of the moment) followed by discussion.  After that an experience or two will be offered as an opportunity to witness yourself and embody new information.  The experiential portions will include a variety of yoga practices that are in accordance with Patanjali’s 8 limbs of yoga.

Both the sun and moon will be in water signs for the whole weekend.  Go here for charts. The water element is what teaches us how to let things *flow*…..most especially with regards to our  feelings and emotional body.   Mars in Libra urges us to look at our relationships with others.  Our emotions are hard to separate from thoughts as understood in yoga therapy.

I’ll post more about our *topic* in the weeks ahead.

PROGRAM COST:   Saturday $65,   Sunday $45   Sign up for both  $95 .  (Class credits do not apply)

Registration for program is here.

An Experiential Course of Self-Study using Yoga, 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.

 

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.

More information regarding astrological transits impacting the weekend is here.

 

 

 

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 these programs, 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 this 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 Eastern system.  Ergo, I welcome all to come, learn, practice, and grow.  More and more information will be posted as we closer to the time.

The chart on the right shows our curriculum for the weekend.  I’ll be sending out tweets, pictures, posts and pages to keep you informed of what we’ll be covering.  For starters go here:

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.

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.  Where and when are usually cosmically determined. 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 identifies our purpose and our karma.  Past Life information is available as well.  Psychologically, astrology helps us understand the nature of our ego,  the obstacles that impede us and the actions and attitudes we must take to become self-realized.  With regards to physical health astrology can reveal significant information that may be unavailable to traditional allopathic medical professionals.   And more.

Yoga provides us with tools, techniques, practices and a philosophy to help us be more present and accepting of what is.  Yoga teaches us how to relax around obstacles, minimize the ego drives and approach life’s challenges in peace. Where astrology represents a clock of the ever-changing present moment, Yoga gently trains us to respond to that  moment with acceptance.  Both, together, advance us towards wholeness, well-being, enlightened consciousness and spiritual awakening.

Integrating astrology and yoga will open up channels in the body like magic.  Benefits are experienced physically, mentally and spiritually.  We get clear.  Our intuitive, psychic, creative, & spiritual abilities become part of our everyday existence with Knowledge & Wisdom as natural byproducts. The experiential approach to Astrology becomes a direct, physical experience that supersedes mind/intellect alone.  Yoga practiced in this way connects us to the cosmos and all 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.
