Lynda DrummingAn Introduction to Shamanic Journeying with Lynda Boozer

Saturday 5/30 2-4pm
Location: Be Yoga Dilworth

Sign Up Now!

Shamanic journeying is a meditative tool used for centuries by indigenous cultures worldwide. Responding to the “heartbeat” rhythm of percussion instruments such as drums or rattles, the journeyer is led into a trance state where he or she can be guided to receive help with challenges, increased power, or companionship along life’s pathways. One can be guided to meet power animals and to visit support in what is termed the upper, middle or lower world. In this workshop, Lynda will introduce participants to the shamanic path and the tool of journey drumming. She will lead us through several journeys which will help us remember our connection to the Spirit in all life and to the fullness of support and power available to us.

CJ & Kellie - Horse #2 - Be Yoga Pic (1)

Yin Yang Workshop with CJ Lawing and Kellie Jackson Daniel

Saturday 6/20 2-4:30pm
Location: Be Yoga Dilworth

Sign Up Now!

“Heavy is the root of light and Stillness the Master of Action.” — Tao de Ching

CJ will begin by leading a 1 hour Yin (passive) practice, a restorative practice offering the opportunity to experience internal energy movement in the framework of stillness. The postures are typically relaxed into and from 3-5 minutes. The luxury of time allows you to immerse yourself in the subtlety and nuances of the connective tissues, tendons, organs and inner energetics of the body.
Once the layers of the body have surrendered and the energy of the body is flowing at deeper levels, Kellie will lead you into a into a 1 hour Yang (active) class. This portion of the class will focus on the muscular realm of the body, moving through a more vigorous flow of standing postures linked with the breath. Although this part of the class is more active, less effort will be needed due to the heightened energy flow from the prior practice of stillness. The combination of these practices done in tandem will nourish the body and provide deep renewal.

We will hold a 15 minutes discussion at both the beginning and end for a brief discussion about the theory and philosophy to give an enriching context for this practice.

Price: $40.00
