Saturday, April 23
 

8:00am EDT

Welcome & Opening Meditation (Open to All)
Come together as a community to kick of the day.

To pause and center ourselves is the gateway for more awareness, calm and clarity in all our actions moving forward. What better way to start the day than by tuning into our breath, our bodies and our minds so that we can more fully absorb the teachings being offered to us throughout the day. Expect some simple movement and pranayama (breath work) to lead us into a short meditation

*Registration is not required.

Closing Program / Earthling Birth
Namas Day Final Program
All-Levels 

The Namas Day Celebration occurs during the astrological sign of Taurus. Taurus is associated with Earthiness, rooting, pleasure, deepening, mud, soil, and grounding.  Is it possible to acknowledge and lean into the fact that you have chosen to incarnate as a Human Being on this round globe we call Earth?  Are you able to acknowledge all of the other sentient beings around you who have also done the same?  In this closing session at Namas Day we will explore how we can embrace the physical shapes our spirits have chosen in this lifetime.  We will move towards connection with the other Earthlings in the room who have chosen to spend their day with us.  We will use the aural pleasure of music to help us do this.  In this closing session you can expect flowing asana, sparkling jewels, live opera, and an amazing DJ to accompany us.
