Art of Ritual Weekend ~ Yoga Home
November 10, 2018 - November 11, 2018$179
In our modern world, it is often easier to isolate and disconnect rather than cultivate practices of community. Meanwhile a widespread hunger for experiences of the sacred in daily life becomes more and more clear. Are you ready to deepen your connection to the sacred? Are you longing to integrate the tools of the sacred arts into your daily life? Are you ready to give your inner critic a vacation and explore the wildness within? Ready to release the dusty or damaging stories that keep you from unleashing your authentic self expression? Ritual asks us to become our own spiritual authority and, especially when combined with yoga, can be a transformative tool that awakens and inspires. Modern, co-creative ritual can bring ancient wisdoms back into our busy daily lives in meaningful, deeply felt, and healing ways. It is an act of courage, hope, and artistry. In this workshop we will discuss the history of ritual from ancient cultures and its evolution through the modern lens of yoga philosophy. We will then learn practical and powerful ritual skills, including grounding and centering, creating a sacred container, and catalyzing transformational practices that can be incorporated into your daily practice, enhance your teaching and help to build conscious community.
We will create personal and collective rituals and cultivate the following the sacred skills:
- Creating a sacred container or space for personal and group transformation/celebration
- Grounding and centering as tools for sacred leadership
- Using ritual to transform stagnant patterns
- Developing creative devotional practices
- Working with diety, myth and storytelling
