SHAKTI CIRCLE:  NEW MOON GATHERING

Wednesday, July 15, 2015
6:00pm – 8:00pm
Venue will be sent to you when you register

Register here - our July meeting will be FREE!

OUR FIRST of monthly meetings … the beginning of an era…. stepping out into the world with grace, strength and connection.Dive into the energy of Shakti: which is defined as the female principle of divine energy, especially when personified as the supreme deity.

Shakti is you who cannot be contained. It is the universal power and the unexplainable movement of energy.  Shakti is the dynamic quality that is pumping the blood through our veins, flowing the breath through our lungs and connecting us energetically to others. It’s the energy that creates everything. She connects us all and she is all.

WHY is this important now? Because the Divine Feminine is what will save this planet. Because for so long the power and independence of the Divine Feminine has not been honored. Because it is time to use our feminine power for healing, evolution and growth. Because the next seven generations of beings on this planet needs us to step into our power … now.

All meetings are at 6:00pm

Wednesday, July 15
Thursday, August 13

Tuesday, November 10

BEING IN CIRCLE breaks open the heart and when women gather, relaxing into the power of Shakti, it creates the potential for miracles to manifest. How this circle will unfold is unknown, it is divine and you will be a part of it.

HOW SHAKTI relates to the moon. SHE is the moon … the moon is the Feminine. Understanding her rhythms and cycles and how they relate to you, is imperative in evolving and aligning with your soul’s calling. What’s new this cycle? What sign is the Moon in? How does that relate to your chart and intentions? How can this energy support your manifestations? How can your thoughts sabotage the energy?

Come explore the New Moon via ritual, community, connection and love as we gather together to release what no longer serves and embrace the manifesting power and potential of a new seed planted and intentions witnessed.

Moon Salutations, also known as Chandra Namaskar, are a soothing yet empowering variation and counterbalance to classical Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar). They allow us to honor the yin or feminine side of our energy, in contrast to the Sun Salutations, which are more yang, or masculine, in nature.

We practice Chandra Namaskar to absorb lunar energy for healing, empowerment and intuitive energy. The moon is cooling and luminous and these Salutations are meant to celebrate and promote all the magical gifts that the moon has to give.

A resurgence of the Moon Salutation is part of the rediscovery of the divine feminine at this important time in our evolution. However, moon salutations are not just for women! Men can reconnect, realign and cool-down fiery impulses through Moon Salutations. Moon salutations can shift energy without increasing heat in the body and tend to be less stimulating than Sun Salutations, thereby balancing hot emotions, relaxing and calming the mind and body and restoring balance.

Join Dana Damara once monthly during the full moon to activate healing and connection with the moon … celebrating this thing we call life. WE MAY TAKE THIS CLASS OUTSIDE WEATHER PERMITTING .. PLEASE REGISTER EARLY AND PROVIDE US WITH AN EMAIL!

Learning the power of using the voice, chanting and mudras to deepen your teaching and practice. The word mantra is based on the Sanskrit roots manas (mind) and trai (device). The word mantra is based on the Sanskrit roots manas (mind) and trai (device).

Mantras have the power to heal, transform and protect. Therefore they must be used with intention and a sense of sacredness.

At the same time, we dive into this with a sense of innocence and expansion! Sing and speak your truth with more confidence and freedom to say what you mean, and mean what you say! (Thank you Dr Suess!) Sound meditations, chanting and even crystal bowls will be introduced in this class. From the sacred to the silly, this class will open you in ways you can’t imagine and transform your life.
