November Gong Sound Bath: Gratitude Is Peace

The time around Thanksgiving makes us contemplate gratitude. The gong can help us to actually vibrate gratitude and send it to every cell of our body. When we feel gratitude we are ultimately in a state of peace, where everything is perfect just as it is. The vibration of the gong helps us to truly pause, and it's only then that our mind is calm and we can clearly see the daily gifts given to us by Life. If you have family or a friend in town for the holiday, bring them with to this special gong immersion that will help everyone feel relaxed and in tune with the spirit of Thanksgiving!

CLASS STRUCTURE: Gong sound bath participants are continuously amazed at its ability to "shut the brain down" and create a sense of aliveness in the body. The timeless sound of the gong also balances our body, mind and emotions. During a gong sound bath participants lay on the floor for about 45 min, covered with a blanket. All props are provided at the studio, however for maximum coziness bring your own pillow and blanket. Dress comfortably. 

The class is led by gong master Vesna Sanders (Eeshavasya Dasi).

*A Gong Bath is not recommended for pregnant women, people with sensitivity to sound or conditions such as Tinnitus, Menieres and Epilepsy, or people with metal Implants, pins, screws or pacemakers.

Project Mantra: Begin to Chant
Sep

8:00 PM20:00

Project Mantra: Begin to Chant

Project Mantra is a free, guided program that helps you gradually build up a simple, yet powerful daily mantra chanting practice over a period of 40 days. It is perfect for beginners who want a simple, effective tool to quiet the mind, open the heart, and create a positive habit of connecting with the Divine on a daily basis.

REDIRECT THE MIND
Mantra chanting is an effective way to control a restless mind. Through regular repetition, the mind can be trained to focus on something positive rather than the incessant inner judgments that tend to occupy our thoughts. Used for millennia by every spiritual tradition, mantras are the predecessor of modern day affirmations.

OPEN THE HEART
The power of a mantra is not hidden in its meaning, but found in its vibrational frequency. The most powerful mantras are timeless Sanskrit names for the Divine. Each syllable creates a vibration that awakens and manifests a Divine Quality such as peace, courage, love, compassion, and acceptance.

DEVELOP A POSITIVE HABIT
It takes 40 days for the transformational power of the practice to create a permanent shift in your consciousness. During that time, you may also notice that you have a more positive outlook on life, improved concentration, greater self-awareness and less judgment toward yourself and others.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
In this course you'll learn two powerful mantras and all the details and instructions on how the 40-day project works. By joining Project Mantra, you receive ongoing support from your instructor, tips, suggestions for deepening your practice and online community support. You will also receive the blessing and energetic support of Paramahamsa Vishwananda which will sustain you and carry you deeper into the practice.

*If you have your own mala beads (japamala), bring it with you.

*The worksop is free, however small donations will be collected to help cover the studio rent's cost.

OM Chanting to Support Separated Families

Please join us for this FREE event and add your voice to this special OM chanting in which we'll unite our voices to send the mantra OM to families who have been separated. Our intention will be to send them peace, love and healing support. Sometimes, when we feel that we can't do much, prayer paired with a positive intention is the highest and most important form of help that we can offer. It has been scientifically measured that when people unite with the same intention positive change begins to happen. 

May all beings everywhere be happy and free.

EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF OM
OM chanting is a powerful technique that promotes inner peace, mental clarity, emotional freedom and physical health. Many experience positive shifts which allow them to enjoy more peace, joy and love in their lives. This circle is open to everyone with a sincere intention to bring more light and positivity to him/herself and to others. No previous experience needed, just a willingness to chant for 45min.

Due to a special blessing by Mahavatar Babaji and Parmahamsa Vishwananda, OM chanting generates a vibrational frequency that releases negativity, transforms it and showers participants with positive energy. The vibrational waves created by the circle spread out in the environment, creating more peace and unity between humans and nature.

ASL Yoga Workshop: Rhythm of Rest

ASL Yoga Workshop: Rhythm of Rest

In this Workshop we will study the rhythms and cycles present in Nature, explore the rhythms of our own cyclical nature through the practices of Intention, Breath, Movement and Rest, and learn how to align with the rhythm of Life off our mat. Workshop will be delivered with American Sign Language.

MEET THE INSTRUCTOR: Eileen Hayes began studying yoga while in graduate school completing her Masters of Social Work degree, with the intention of discovering a method to empower herself and others to embrace the ability to foster healing in all aspects of life. Discovering this in yoga, she was led to an opportunity working at an ashram in the Catskill Mountains studying Yoga asana and philosophy, being immersed in the Vedic culture out of which yoga was born. Upon returning to Rochester she went on to complete her 200 hour training in an alignment based hatha yoga tradition grounded in Tantric philosophy at Blue Lotus Yoga. She finds great joy and fulfillment in offering others a dedicated and consistent practice with respect for its power to transform the individual from the inside out by reconnecting them to their innate sense of wholeness.

April Gong Sound Bath: Awaken Life Within

It's Spring and life is awakening, yet internally you might still be feeling a bit unproductive, lacking energy or just uninspired. In this class the powerful sound of the gong, paired with our personal and group intention, will help us to penetrate deep through the layers of resistance that we have built around ourselves, to allow our life force (prana) to begin to flow optimally from the inside out. When Life flows freely through us, we are able to see every day as an opportunity and as a gift, and we can live with more joy, ease, creativity and purpose.

WHAT IS A GONG BATH? A gong bath is a form of sound therapy where the gong is played in a therapeutic way to bring about balance. The term "gong bath" means that you are bathed in sound waves while laying on the floor for about 45 min, wrapped in a blanket. It is very relaxing and calming, appropriate for everybody who is craving some deep rest and a break from the ever-racing mind. The gong aligns all levels of our being (body, mind, emotions) to support healing and transformation.

POSSIBLE BENEFITS: On a physical level, the gong releases tension and blocks in the body, it stimulates a higher functioning of the glandular and nervous system, it increases prana (our vital life force) and improves circulation. It allows you to slow down and have a break from your thinking mind, release emotions and feel lighter and more free from within.

Natural Vision Improvement Workshop

Natural Vision Improvement Workshop

Have you ever wished you could improve your eyesight?   Are you tired of wearing glasses or contacts all the time?  Do you experience eye strain, headaches, brain fog, or confusion and sense a relationship with your vision or your glasses?  Would you like to avoid having your sight deteriorate as you age?  Are any of these things even possible without surgery?

Aldous Huxley (1894-1963) was a big proponent of Natural Vision Improvement as developed by New York City optometrist W.H. Bates (1860-1931) in the early twentieth century.  In addition to his work with vision, Huxley studied extensively with somatics pioneer F.M. Alexander whose work, the Alexander Technique, has sustained successful performers, thinkers and achievers worldwide for over a century.  Huxley's elegant and comprehensive book, The Art of Seeing will be the textual backdrop of this workshop.  

In our time together we will discuss how vision works, how corrective lenses work, and what the implications are for the brain and the body.  We will experiment with our eyesight and with "eye exercises" to discover something about our visual habits, so the workshop will be highly experiential.  Students will need to be prepared to take off their glasses or contact lenses while we are together, so be prepared to experience your blur in a safe and supportive environment.  You will learn specific activities for improving awareness and relaxation of eyes and brain.

Tara Sullivan has been a Certified Teacher of the Alexander Technique for 20 years and has been taking Alexander lessons since she was a teenager.  She has been a student of natural vision improvement since 2001, including working, writing and traveling extensively with Peter Grunwald.  A classically trained singer, Tara also teaches Jivamukti Yoga and her focus is always on getting to the root of things.  She has lived and taught Alexander, yoga, and vision on both coasts and internationally. www.tara-sullivan.com

Gong Sound Immersion: Open up to Abundance 3-Week Series

Gong Sound Immersion: Open up to Abundance 3-Week Series

Gong sound immersion: Open up to Abundance 3-week series
Tuesday, March 13th, 20th and 27th | 8pm-9pm 

In this series we'll use the transformational power of the gong's vibration, as well as our own intention, to invite Abundance in our life. Is your first thought when you hear the word abundance 'money' or 'wealth'? How about abundance of time, health, emotional balance, joy, love, inner peace, passion for life, creativity, sense of purpose? The real abundance comes from within; it begins to flow to us and through us when we are connected to our true Self and in tune with our Highest purpose. The inner abundance has a strong foundation that positively reflects in our everyday life.
.  
The sound of the gong balances all aspects of our being (physical, emotional, spiritual) and it works through layers of physical tension or ingrained believes that prevent us from flowing with the fullness of the universe. Paired with a special mantra, this series will help you open the gates for meaningful prosperity to start flowing into your life.  

A gong bath is a 45 minute immersion where you are bathed with sustained waves of primordial sound. During a gong bath, listeners typically experience a sense of connectedness and peace as the sound of the gong clears blockages and restores the free flow of vital energy throughout the body. With its ability to induce a spontaneous meditative state, the gong offers access to parts of the mind that are usually closed, resulting in a sense of expanded awareness, relaxation and connection to our true Self. All you need to do is lay down on your mat, covered with a blanket, relax and let the sound wash over the body and carry the mind. 

It is highly recommended that you participate in all three classes to experience the full benefit of this series.

 3 classes: $33 / 2 classes: $24 / Individual class: $13

The series is led by gong master Vesna Sanders (Eeshavasya Dasi).

*A Gong Bath is not recommended for pregnant women, people with sensitivity to sound or conditions such as Tinnitus, Menieres and Epilepsy, or people with metal Implants, pins, screws or pacemakers
