In a few short weeks, a dream I have been working to bring to reality for the last 10 years will finally be manifest. I am thrilled to say the least. After much deliberation, research, and wondrous brainstorming, I present to you what I judge is the crowning achievement of my adult and creative life. I have finally planned and created a weekend long Kundalini yoga retreat!
From the moment I found out in a Kundalini Yoga beginners’ series at Yoga Yoga in North Austin, TX ( in 2009), I was fascinated by the fact that the ancient yogis of old developed the concept that we have Ten Bodies. The experiences I have in this single physical one are enough to fill volumes and it is yet but one of nine other entities.
I’m fairly certain that this idea for the workshop was seeded very early in my journey with Kundalini yoga. Just think of what you can be aware of, what you can determine and convey, with ten brilliant bodies. Imagine being able to suddenly speak nine new languages, and have nine new mythologies and archetypes to integrate from. I remain floored and as I said, fascinated. Eventually, I started to ask myself questions based on what I was given. If each of the “bodies” has a key, a way to tap in, then each must also have a vantage point, a door from which to peer out from. And...viola! Ten Doors!
The rest was art, and that’s familiar, and magical/mystical.
Within this Kundalini yoga and meditation workshop, I intend to inspire and prompt reflection upon our very essence within the framework of the Ten Bodies of Kundalini yoga. We will journey through each body as a group, pausing along the way to integrate and make meaning of our new understanding of ourselves. Come join a weekend long practice spanning Yoga, meditation, and breath work- all supported by creative/ artistic opportunities as well as dancing and kirtan!
