Heart Yoga – Nelson Workshop
Please join us for an evening or weekend of Heart Yoga at the Summer Solstice, June 18-20, in Nelson. This workshop will deepen and inspire your yoga practice, open your heart to unconditional love, and strengthen and infuse your body with light. Through our practice together, we will experience the sacred union of the radiant body with the awakened heart, and the love, peace, and sacred passion that is birthed from this marriage.
This event is also an opportunity to join us in celebrating the publication of our new book, Heart Yoga: The Sacred Marriage of Yoga and Mysticism. Deepak Chopra wrote of it: “This is an amazing book that will accelerate your journey to God-consciousness.” If you’d like to read more about the book, or pre-order a copy, go to this link: http://www.amazon.com/
We’d love to share our joy with you in the birth of this book. Deep thanks to all of you who, through your love and support, have been midwives in this process.
Heart Yoga is grounded in the universal mystical vision of the Sacred Marriage, the marriage of spirit and body, transcendence and immanence, heaven and earth, masculine and feminine, that is continually birthing the cosmos through the power of radiant love. In this workshop, we will explore our vision of this marriage by unfolding the five great joys that emanate from it: the joys of transcendence, creation, love for all beings, Tantra, and service. For each of these joys, we offer beautiful combinations of yoga postures with sacred poetry, meditations, and visualizations drawn from the classical mystical traditions. These enable each joy to be experienced simultaneously in the illumined mind, ecstatic heart, and conscious body.
When yoga practice is infused with the inspiration of sacred texts and poetry, yoga becomes a way to experience a great mystery—that of the embodiment of the divine in the human. Our practice together will be an embodied prayer for all human beings to enter into the fullness of this birth of the divine human, and so to be inspired to act with wisdom and compassion in the world.
“Heart Yoga: The Sacred Marriage of Yoga and Mysticism exquisitely merges the poetry of the Divine with the power of Yoga with inspired precision. Authors Andrew Harvey and Karuna Erickson have accomplished the rigorous blending of heaven and earth, guaranteed to inspire both new and well-seasoned students of yoga. This book is a magnificent accomplishment.”—Caroline Myss, author of Entering the Castle and Anatomy of the Spirit
