FEATURED EVENT Babaji Satyanarayana Dasa & Jessica Richmond
IT HURTS SO GOOD WORKSHOP | JUNE 25, 2018 | 5:30P – 8:30P
Join us for this women’s only discussion group. We will process relationship issues by reading a client story in a loving group atmosphere, guided by a gentle psychotherapist and a famous guru visiting from India. This dynamic duo’s approach of east and west, enables participants to feel comfortable in opening and honoring what is in their hearts. Participants will analyze together the red flags in the client story, and will reflect upon and share similar issues that they also struggle with in relationships such as finding their voice, feeling lonely, being a victim, being manipulated or taken advantage of, feeling stuck, addiction, grief, being emotionally and/or physically abused, and co-dependency. By sharing, participants discover that they are not alone. Clients will be supported in discovering ways out of their pain and struggle.
YOGA OF THE HEART | JUNE 26, 2018 | 5:30P – 8:30P
Love is the most powerful emotion of the human mind and is the greatest need for fulfillment of our life. We all strive for love, yet most of the time love evades us. It seems like a mystery. Love is not possible without healthy relations. Love is one of the most common words used by us in our daily life, and we all think that we know what love is. Love, however is an art. And like any other art, it needs education which is surprisingly missing in the present day education system. In this talk you will learn about the yoga of the heart. Through analyzing true stories, we will discuss what it means to have healthy loving relationships and how to improve relations which are not functioning as per your satisfaction. Just by knowing the basic concepts of love, you can act from a compassionate place in your heart instead of from a reactive place in your mind.
Both Workshops | $175.00
Single Workshop | $125.00
*Babaji will also be available for 15 minute individual meetings on a donation basis*
**Jessica will be available for individual 60-minute Vedic Psychology sessions for $125**
