Unearthing Your Dharma with Christy Fisher And Laura Yon
May 17, 2019| $755 – $825
“Dharma” is often understood as an inner blueprint of your deepest authentic self, a path to your highest potential. Yet often dharma feels obscure and out of reach. How do you know if you are on “your right path”?
For thousands of years, yogic teachings have addressed this human dilemma and offered maps to deeper peace and clarity.
In this immersion we will incorporate yogic practices to:
- Clear paths to our heart’s inner callings, through movement, stillness, sharing and personal quiet time/reflection.
- Explore the ancient practice of “Samyama” to experience deep compassionate connection to one’s self, others, and nature.
- Learn simple techniques to access inspiration from an infinite reserve.
- Create gentle rituals to bring a sense of wonder and the sacred into every aspect of life.
