Celebrate Diwali

Embodying the Light:  Lakshmi Puja and Creative Abundance

Diwali Celebration with Shiva Rea

 

As yoga practitioners, we have the opportunity to transform the
"scarcity mentality" at a cellular level by exploring the vibrational level of our relationship to creative power, Sri, the abundance of prosperity and vitality of life.

In this special sadhana, we will work with four-levels of exploration from our body, home, outward manifestation and seva to vibrationally clear out any unconscious contractions and align ourselves with the new year sadhana time of Diwali, the festival of lights as preparation for entering into the new year on the horizon. We will explore the deeper meaning and embodiment of Lakshmi and support each other in the process led by Shiva which involves a small or large personal project nurtured during this period on behalf of the welfare of all.

 

includes 5 days of live morning meditations available on archive that same morning,
reflection and sadhana packet.

Free for returning practitioners.

Our Teachers

About Samudra Online

Our program was born on the Winter Solstice of 2010 as a simple commitment to consciously live in synch with the solar-lunar cycles of the year. This is still the heart of our "Living in Rhythm" Samudra Membership, which features our twice a month new-full moon meditations. You can enroll in our live courses for personal and professional development (pathways of prana flow practices for teachers) and become a member if you want to stay connected through the year and have access to the videos you have experienced.

 

Rather than being solely an archive of videos, we want to offer courses with living personal connection, access to teachers during sessions, and the power of community interaction. I feel blessed to have filmed yoga DVD's in some amazing locations in the world but the feedback from the community is that you are enjoying the intimacy of my home practice studio, global locations, and personal guidance.

 

This online space is thus dedicated to:

 

Sacred Activism – coming soon

 

 

Living Practice

Everything that happens here is alive, current, and connected to living teachers and practitioners through our Facebook groups that run in conjunction with each course.

 

Depth of Content

We are dedicated to offering root teachings in Yoga, Tantra, Ayurveda, and Bhakti as well as "evolutionary branches" in courses for women (Sacred Belly Project), and men (Danda and the Lotus), movement (fluid creative core), and PranaDandaYoga with a 5-foot staff.

 

Life-Integration

Our courses are for global, householder life-styles that have compassion and effective practices for the rhythms of life for movers and shakers, family people, creators, yoga teachers. Every course reflects upon a life-integration and serves as a continuity in our Samudra teacher training and Yogadventure retreats.

 

 

Keep tending the sacred fire,

Love all ways

 

Shiva
