Roc Women's Spiritual Leadership Group: Women's Empowerment Kula

Saturday, April 22nd ( 6:00pm - 7:30pm )
Cost: $12pp / all materials are provided / bring a guest FREE

What is spiritual leadership? It is the act of discovering your own potential, leading a life that is in alignment with your soul’s purpose, and empowering others to do the same.

This gathering, lead by Life Coach and Yoga Instructor, Kathryn Lorraine, is the start of a new and powerful sacred community, a “kula”. This kula is for the women of Rochester who wish to discover, evolve, and share together in an open and safe environment grounded by a strong spiritual foundation.

This Kula is for those who want to:
* Discover their purpose, gifts, and mission here and now
* Improve on all levels of being - body, mind and spirit
* Build strong, nourishing, authentic relationships with like-minded women in our community
* Enhance their leadership skills and learn how to lead from a place of alignment
* Share their gifts and knowledge with fellow community members

In this Empowerment Kula, we are coming together to celebrate the foundations of our individual alignment as well as the inception of our collective potential. We will begin by sharing our stories and some ayurvedic snacks and tea, followed by some group yoga (an all levels shakti vinyasa flow). We will then dive into an experiential exercise focused on stepping into our own power and discovering our higher-self. The gathering will end with a guided group meditation that will leave you feeling inspired and connected.

( Workshop #3 ) Liberate your Spirit: Dynamic Meditation 

In this workshop with Instructor, Audra Dion, we will use an active meditation. This meditation is like nothing you have ever experienced before and will powerfully help you to access and release deeply held stress in the body. Get ready to unleash toxic energy being held in your body in a fun and dynamic way. OSHO created this technique as a means of helping Westerners who came to his ashram in India access meditation more readily because he found that they were so wound with tension that it was impossible for them to sit in meditation.
