Workshops and Mantra Circle Sisterhood
“Jnana Yoga” – Yoga of Wisdom
What is A life without yoga? What is a life with yoga?
As we evolve ever so deeply and know our boundaries in our bodies there’s something more
to explore - the inner yoga, the yoga of life, the yoga of aging, the yoga of wisdom. I dream that we will
come together as a community of sisters, as women with a strong voice and women with strong faith.
I invite us all to bring our voices together, singing prayers and resonnating in the wonder of that stillness.
Yoga began as spiritual development practices to train the body and mind to self observe and
become aware of one’s own nature. Yoga began as a mental practice to discover techniques
and methods to decrease suffering and create more contentment, joy, and peace.
Karma yoga is selfless service, Bhakti yoga is devotion, Raja yoga is meditation, Jnana yoga is wisdom
Bhakti yoga involves surrendering to the Divine or uniting with the universal consciousness,
through practices such as chanting, singing, dancing and selfless service within the community. In
Sanskrit mantra literally means sound tool. Mantra is a tool of sound for the mind, one that brings
about a healing and a meditative state. In Hinduism, mantras are said to invoke various powers,
including that of the gods and goddesses. Combining music with mantra takes the practice to a higher
of meditation. Since reciting mantra can be difficult for non Sanskrit speakers, adding trance music to
Mantras can help us better integrate into this transformative practice.

Chakra Healing Workshops
Chakra means wheel of energy. The seven Main chakras are our doorways for life force energy called
prana. Chakras are consciousness centers that transform energy and interface between the dense
physical world of the five senses and the subtle world of pure consciousness. The lotus petal indicates
the frequency, vibration rate, and color of energy fields.
The Subtle Bodies
According to ancient Hindu teachings, the human being consists of many septal bodies. Through these
sub two bodies and their inherent consciousness, we contain the entire universe and all of its levels.
These bodies are the different vehicles of consciousness and the encasements for the inner being.
Only the physical body is a body in the usual sense. The astral body has the same form as the
physical but it’s made of subtle matter. The Causal/ Mental body is a body of light. Each body relates
to a state of consciousness. Typical, the physical body is the waking state, the astral body is the dream
state in the Causal body is the deep sleep state. The inner self corresponds to the fourth state –
the ever wakeful state of pure awareness.
