Healing with Art and Mantra

Healing with Art and Mantra

20431458_10211285730474100_3740183004414945980_n.jpg

This class will be a healing blend of mantras in the form of kirtan, or call and response chanting, and the creation of art. We will begin with a brief introduction of the history of kirtan and why mantras are such powerful tools. We will also discuss how art and creativity are powerful healing tools and how mantras can help us tap into our creativity. We will start with a session of some call and response chanting to get grounded and settle into the class. I will lead the chants accompanied by my harmonium. Then we will proceed to draw. I will suggest students to choose a mantra to focus on, to mentally repeat or quietly sing, as they draw to get into a flow state. The repetition of the mantra while creating will help with artist’s block and allow students to intuitively create. This process can also facilitate healing if a student chooses a mantra with a specific intention behind it; then their art will be infused with this healing intention. My goal is that students will leave the class with useful tools to help de-stress and enter the creative flow that they can use in their own lives.

Hilary has been leading kirtan for three years and has been immersed in the practice for 10 years. The daily practice of kirtan has allowed her to experience more peace and happiness in every moment. She has been singing for her entire life and loves to share this heart opening practice with others. She has also been painting for over 15 years. The practice of chanting mantras has deepened her spiritual relationship with creating art. Although she primarily considers herself a painter, she is joyed to share her practice of kirtan with others.

Animal Mukti Workshop

Ever wonder why so many yoga poses named after animals? By taking the shapes of animals, trees, and sacred geometries we connect to various energies that flow through the body and influence our mental states. In this playful vinyasa practice we will focus on some of those poses and the stories behind them. It is through the connection to the other that we find our true self. A wonderful opportunity to integrate the experiences of Unifier into our bodies and hearts before heading back into the world.

Yoga Therapy for Psoas Awakening

A gentle exploration to free the psoas while creating stability in the pelvis.  The psoas is a core movement and posture muscle; dance, speech/song, and awakening are profound aspects of its function. Because the fight/fright/freeze mechanism is set in the psoas, the practices also can release and integrate imbedded impressions of stress and trauma. Ideal if back and hip and knee issues. This is a safe release-work approach for the next step on your path in mind, body and spirit.

Gentle Yoga & Meditation as Doorway to the Subtle Realms

All levels and abilities welcome. Through easy postures, yogic breathing, chanting and meditation, the practice opens the subtle energy channels to ground, clear and refine.  The practice develops two important pranas (subtle energies) in our being: Apana Prana (letting go and grounding) and Udana Prana.  Udana Prana governs positive evolutionary energy in consciousness, spinal strength, enthusiasm and self-expression. It guides awareness to profound experiences of nature, the astral and causal planes, giving you insight into those realms and helping you to attune to your inner guidance. We will practice on the beach or on the dock connecting intimately with the lake and her creatures, yoking inner and outer nature.
