Sacred Sound & Yoga: Krishna
Friday 7th September, 2018
7:00 - 10:00 pm (please arrive no later than 6:45 pm)
Location: Grace Revolution
ABOUT THE EVENING
Join us for a three-hour workshop invoking the Hindu god, Krishna, co-facilitated by Dina Smirnova and Jacinta Percy. This is the continuation of a series of monthly gatherings intended to explore Sacred Sound and Yoga by examining various mystical themes, with a strong focus on maintaining the integrity of the teachings and spiritual practices.
Krishna is worshipped as the Supreme God of Love and is the eighth incarnation of Vishnu, Lord of Creation.
Working with Krishna opens us to the Bhakti path of devotion, allowing us to unite with and lose ourselves in the Divine. Krishna reminds us that real love risks everything and opens us to the highest form of sweetness.
Some examples of where this energy may be present or needed include: activating a state of bliss and inspiring unconditional love for self and others; shedding light on where there may be gaps in your own self-love; experiencing your own sensuality as a means to discern between spiritual materialism (lust) and purity (Divine Love).
This gathering is an opportunity to transform the passionate fire of Durga into the expansive Love of Krishna. This is an intimate and potent container; thus there is a limited capacity of 20 people.
Some prior yoga experience and knowledge is recommended but not required. All levels, bodies, and experiences are welcome in the space.
The evening will include:
+ Intention setting and gratitude
+ Storytelling, philosophy and energetics of Krishna
+ An invocation of Krishna through mantra and kirtan
+ A Hatha yoga practice which connects us to the inner state of bliss and loving-kindness
Outcomes of this workshop will be:
+ Creating a powerful intention, charged by the energy of the group, to inspire fresh focus and action
+ Connecting to a community of like-minded souls
+ Exploring your voice in a safe and nurturing setting
+ Integrating the energetic of Krishna into your physical and emotional bodies
+ Opening up a portal of radical possibility, reminding us the Divine resides within
Please bring a pen, notebook, water, a cushion to sit on, small shakers and drums for kirtan, a shawl and anything else you’d like to ensure your comfort.
Mats and props are available at the studio; however, we advise you bring your own mat if preferred.
++ Please arrive no later than 6:45pm so we can start promptly, the door will be locked at 7pm on the dot and will not be opened once closed ++
