August New Moon Journal Ritual for We'Moon

Civilization’s way of tracking time was born out of the lunar rhythms of a woman’s monthly cycle, or moon cycle. The origins of the word “moon” come from the word “month” and “menses” both in Old English and Greek. Women would experience their period together on the New Moon and would ovulate at the Full Moon. The Lunar Calendar is what is innately inside each of us and, as women, many of us are beginning to remember this cycle, and to align our lives with it.

On the New Moon we set our intentions, consciously and deliberately focusing on the process over two weeks to the Full Moon, when the manifestations are clearly illuminated. One of the most valuable tools in this journey is journaling where we can explore our deepest selves. You will be guided through a writing process delivered via email to your inbox daily so you can participate in your own time during the lunar cycle from New Moon to Full Moon. Each day will bring forward various themes based on current astrological influences and the phase of the moon.

Registration for this event closes at 11:59pm Friday, August 30th.

A History of Yoga

Many practitioners in the western world know only the physical practice of yoga, the asana practice, that we all bring to our mats. But there is so much more to yoga than just the physical practice, it is a spiritual and philosophical practice that can truly enhance one’s life. We will spend a couple of hours exploring the history and philosophy of Yoga, including discussion on the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali and the Bhagavad Gita. Hours of this workshop are eligible for Yoga Alliance CEHs.

Mala, Mantra & Japa Meditation

Mala is the Sanskrit word for garland and contains 108 prayer beads knotted together along with counter beads and a guru bead. These sacred beads are used in the spiritual practice of Japa Meditation to count the number of times a mantra, which is a word or series of words invoking spiritual qualities, is recited in meditation. In this workshop we will dive into a deeper understanding of mantra and meditation and their benefits as well as learn how to make a mala and the significance behind them. Basic yoga philosophy will be covered during this fun, artistic and informative experience. Hours of this workshop are eligible for Yoga Alliance CEHs.
