The Pointer Sisters: Essential Teachings of Tantric Yoga and the Nature of Your True Self
When we separate from our innate ground of well-being five beliefs or Pointer Sisters (Sanskrit: kañchukas from the Yoga Tantric Nondual Tradition) co-arise as coverings that conceal, as well as reveal our psychological and spiritual health. These exquisite messengers provide insight into how we can heal the fundamental errors of misperception that interfere with our psychological health, healing and wholeness. And while psychological freedom is helpful for living at ease with the demands of life, it does not bring full release from suffering. The Pointer Sisters also awaken us to our innate sense of peace and well-being which, when fully lived, reveals our true freedom and brings release from suffering. Come experience these ancient meditative teachings, which reveal our innate interconnectedness with all of life that can easily be woven into the fabric of our existing yoga practices, teachings, relationships, and daily life.

Dress in comfortable clothes, no asana practice involved.

Introduction to Integrative Restoration – iRest® Yoga Nidra
Integrative Restoration – iRest ® is a transformative practice derived from the ancient teachings of tantric yoga that leads to psychological, physical, and spiritual health and well-being. iRest® teaches skills that you can use throughout your life, that assist you in experiencing a sense of mastery when encountering difficult situations and a sense of ease that pervades your everyday life. iRest Yoga Nidra provides you the tools to heal unresolved issues, traumas, and wounds present in the body, mind and senses; and reveals and restores you to your innate peace of mind that is present amidst all changing circumstances.

It is being used with veterans, homeless, incarcerated, mentally ill, children and college students as well as with multiple sclerosis, grief, cancer, chemical dependency, fertility, and pre- and post-partum.
