Heartfulness Meditation (VILLAGE PASS & ALL-ACCESS PASS HOLDERS)

Spirituality is the search for a higher experience of ourselves. Experience is the source from which real knowledge begins. Heartfulness is a path to experiencing your inner self.

We have learned so much from so many, both ancient and modern. Yet, upon closing their books or turning off their lectures, we remain the same as we were before. Experience is the gold that backs the currency of knowledge. Without experience all knowledge stays abstract and hollow. It is not yet OURS.

Heartfulness is a simple and practical way to experience the heart’s unlimited resources. Whether you are seeking stress reduction and relaxation, an individual meditation practice, or a deeper connection to your inner being, we welcome you.

Heartfulness Meditation is a simple, practical technique that you can use alongside any other form of yoga, meditation or practice. In a few minutes, you will learn how to relax and feel the lightness and joy of your true nature. You don’t need to know how to meditate or to believe in a particular system or philosophy. The Heartfulness technique shows us to gently turn our attention towards our heart and experience that inner presence for ourselves.

An Introduction To Centering Prayer (VILLAGE PASS & ALL-ACCESS PASS HOLDERS)

This meditation workshop will focus on the ancient Christian roots of Centering Prayer, the guidelines or method of Centering Prayer, what to do with thoughts and a practice session.

Contemplative Prayer is considered a pure gift from God and Centering Prayer is a method of preparing for that gift.  The method uses silence and a gentle awareness to the present to create an interior stillness in which we touch our True Self and the Indwelling Spirit of God.  The purpose of Centering Prayer is to facilitate the opening of our hearts and minds, our whole being to God, the Source, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions

Centering Prayer was developed in the 1970’s by three Trappists Monks, Thomas Keating, Basil Pennington and William Menninger. It is a means re-claiming the ancient mystical dimension of Christian prayer that was present from the time of the early desert father and mothers. The writings of the great Christian mystics, among them John of the Cross, and Theresa of Avila, refer to this type of prayer as does the Cloud of Unknowing written by an unknown monk of the 14th century.

Centering Prayer, as the mystical dimensions of all major religious traditions, dwells in the present moment, promotes understanding of creation as a “oneness”, creates and relies on interior peace, and emphasizes communion with the God within ourselves, with others and all of creation.

Beyond Yoga - Creating A Deeper Connection, An Introduction To Tantra (VILLAGE PASS & ALL-ACCESS PASS HOLDERS ONLY)
Learn to create a deeper connection between body and Soul through a combined practice of movement, breathwork and mantra ~ the 3 main ingredients of the Tantric practice. Tantric techniques weave these aspects together to create a conscious connection with Source energy. It is a stimulating practice which opens you to experience great growth and understanding, as we connect directly with the creative power of the Sacral Chakra.

You will end the workshop laying down in total relaxation to experience the vibrational healing energies of the gong tuned to 432hz, the harmonic intonation of nature. This frequency resonates inside your body, releases emotional blockages and expands consciousness. It naturally allows you to tune into the knowledge of the Universe around us in a more intuitive way.

~No prior experience necessary.

If you've ever wondered what your purpose is or why you're here, this class is for you.  Julie Santiago is a former Wall Street trader turned writer, speaker and teacher, and she’s sharing some of her most powerful tools on how to live a life you love.  

In this experiential class, you will:

 • Learn how to be the best version of yourself right now – no matter how great or challenging your life presently feels (and why this is SO important)

• Understand why you are more likely to be more comfortable DOING rather than BEING (and why it’s cutting off your creative life force and causing you to feel empty inside.)

• Develop a guiding principle to help you discover your truest self and share that person with the world!

Yogic Mantras & Mudras: Sacred Sounds & Hand Gestures (VILLAGE PASS & ALL-ACCESS PASS HOLDERS)

Many of the mystic traditions teach that there is a sound code or vibratory pattern, embedded into the very fabric of existence itself. That every object that we describe has a sound pattern, and that each of us is also made up of sound.  The sound of ourself dictates the quality of our consciousness, what we perceive, and what we attract into our lives.  If we become conscious of the power of sound we start to see how much of it influences, for better or worse — the level of peace and harmony in our physical space. In this meditation, we will experience the power of yogic sounds called mantras and how to couple them with specific hand gestures called mudras to increase their healing benefits.

Heartfulness Meditation (VILLAGE PASS & ALL-ACCESS PASS HOLDERS)

Spirituality is the search for a higher experience of ourselves. Experience is the source from which real knowledge begins. Heartfulness is a path to experiencing your inner self.

We have learned so much from so many, both ancient and modern. Yet, upon closing their books or turning off their lectures, we remain the same as we were before. Experience is the gold that backs the currency of knowledge. Without experience all knowledge stays abstract and hollow. It is not yet OURS.

Heartfulness is a simple and practical way to experience the heart’s unlimited resources. Whether you are seeking stress reduction and relaxation, an individual meditation practice, or a deeper connection to your inner being, we welcome you.

Heartfulness Meditation is a simple, practical technique that you can use alongside any other form of yoga, meditation or practice. In a few minutes, you will learn how to relax and feel the lightness and joy of your true nature. You don’t need to know how to meditate or to believe in a particular system or philosophy. The Heartfulness technique shows us to gently turn our attention towards our heart and experience that inner presence for ourselves.

Kundalini Yoga To Heal The Heart (VILLAGE PASS & ALL-ACCESS PASS HOLDERS)

Kundalini Yoga is the yoga of awareness. The power of Kundalini Yoga lies in the actual experience. It goes right to your heart and extends your consciousness so you may have a wider horizon of grace and knowing the truth. We will discuss the basics of Kundalini Yoga including breathwork, meditation, kriyas, mantras, and chanting which will focus on healing the heart center. This workshop includes a yoga practice and is suitable for all levels. Dan Shanahan, yoga teacher and musician, will enhance the practice by taking us on a musical journey with guitar and harmonium.

In addition, you will immerse yourself in the healing sounds of the gong tuned to the planet Uranus and healing the Sacral Chakra, balancing emotions. The gong is one of the oldest musical instruments in the world. Based on ancient wisdom, the gong vibrates at the same frequency as the body allowing the body to heal itself. The gong balances the central nervous system and aids in deep meditation. Singing crystal and Tibetan bowls will also be added to raise the vibration and heighten the experience.
