“Release Into Peace”
Guided By Sandy Blessings to you…… January 25th 2020 at 6:30pm will be my annual “Release Into Peace” meditation. This year it shall be combined with Restorative Yoga! Each year we gather our pasts, worries, fears, griefs, pains, heartaches and accept and embrace their lessons. Any part of our lives that refuses to be our teacher and instead desires to dim our light shall be released. You will be given an experiential opportunity to celebrate this letting go-ness so that we make room for our own spaciousness. Create synchronicity through mental vibration. Experience is never needed, but a willing heart is. $20 before Feb 10th or $25 drop in. See you then.
On Mindfulness Practices...
So recently was asked….. “what’s all this talk lately about Mindfulness Meditation and Mindfulness in general?” Mindfulness is a technique from the religion – Buddhism. Grounded By Yoga stays with the yogic techniques. This allows us to go deeper, father whereas Mindfulness awareness can keep us in the same groove, just digging deeper awareness, resulting in a place of “stuckville”. The yogic meditation practice goes BEYOND mindfulness/awareness. Let us take you there! Grounded by Yoga remains non-dogmatic – therefore allowing you to choose your desired path to spirit. Yoga Meditation is the art and science of systematically observing, accepting, understanding, and training each of the levels of our being.,such that we may coordinate and integrate those aspects of ourselves and dwell in the direct experience of the center of consciousness. Please Note: Mindfulness practices are not recommended for trauma thrivers.
