Charanpal Kaur - cd art (photo by MSK)

Kundalini Yoga + Live Music & Gong Bath

INSTRUCTOR: Naomi Charanpal Kaur

MUSICAL GUEST: Ghansham Singh

DATE: Friday, October 9th

TIME: 7:30pm

COST: Regular Class Pricing

Please bring $5-10 for the musician

Inside the fourth chakra, the Anahata, is a deep and mysteriously beautiful sacred space that, when opened and awakened, can create the purest, most magical well of peaceful waters for your own healing and resolve.  The Anahata guides us to a more profound way of living, because it guides us to our own profound loving. What if I told you your own personal healing, no matter where you needed it… in your body, your mind, or your life, relied on the health of your own heart?  Would you look and listen and consider what your heart wants to tell you?  
In this workshop, you will be guided through a journey of self-discovery, awakening to the wisdom of your soul… your inner teacher and guide.  You will be guided to heal the places inside that hurt, and cultivate the courage to really listen to where in your heart you need resolve.  This is done through deep meditation and the ancient teachings of Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan, along with the principles and practices of Spiritual Psychology.
