We will begin by creating a sacred container as we journey into the Heart. We will focus our attention within through a guided meditation As we bring conscious awareness to our body sensations, emotions, and thoughts in the present moment, we can begin to inquire into what is really true for us. We begin to notice what arises out of fear and what arises out of love. We notice how beliefs based on painful past experiences keep our hearts closed. By embracing and loving exactly what arises within us, we paradoxically dissolve our fears and judgments. The places we resist are the vehicles into the Heart. They show us where to shine our light.
For most of our time together, we will carry mindful awareness into paired interactions that may include eye gazing, movement, healing energy, verbal sharing and sounding. When we are aware of our authentic experience, we can allow ourselves to be seen and witnessed by others. Revealing ourselves authentically increases connection and erodes the belief that we are separate and alone. Together we can remember our inherent wholeness and divinity. Each of can reunite with our own natural rhythm. We will close by circling together and sharing our gratitude. Join us on the journey returning home to the Heart. Be prepared to laugh, cry and play, as we allow the natural flow of expression to move us.

In the early 90's Chris was turned onto life changing rituals led in Native American traditions. He became an energy healer soon after and by 1998 birthed the "Divine Balance" modality. From there he focused life on communal living. For the past 8 years he lived and loved his work defining social permaculture while living in intentional communities. Chris's mission is to find the glue that holds people as one tribe together.Yoga, Divine Union, is the ancient art of cultivating awarenes and control of one's mind, body, and spirit. Join us in celebration of our souls as we explore physical postures, breathing excercizes, guided meditations, chants, and energy work, both on ourselves and others. The workshops will include elements from various cultures around the world, including Kundalini Yoga, Qikung, Acupressure, and Kirtan. Ultimately, Yoga is based on the interconnectedness of all living beings, that "Serving Oneself is Serving Others, Serving Others is Serving God, Serving God is Serving Oneself.
