Light the Lamp New Moon - Exhale Lakshmi Puja - New Times

Wednesday, October 30, 2013
Dear Friends,

You may already know of our upcoming Diwali weekend but there is a change of times for Sunday Exhale classes with the daylight savings.

As the veils are thin with Samhain-Halloween, Dias de Los Meurtos and the coming New Moon, may we honor our ancestors, integrate the shadow teachings and light the lamp of Diwali.

Love all ways,

Shiva

New Samudra Online Course - Exhale Classes - Special Diwali Offering - India Registration Open

Friday, October 25, 2013
Dear Friends,

In Vigil till Diwali November 3rd.

I have been experiencing the power of candlelight vigil as we have been keeping a 24 hour flame for my Grandpa since his passing on Tuesday morning. It is as if our Dias de Los Muertos (Nov. 2nd) altar has begun early on the side of our kitchen table. This is the time to honor the ancestors, making an altar to remember and "feed" those in the spirit world between now and Samhain/Halloween

Then with the New Moon comes "Embodying the Light", a two-week course on Diwali and “Lakshmi Body Puja as Creative Abundance”. This Samudra Online course is about a cellular connection to Sri Shakti and the art of bringing this regenerative energy into your body, home and life (see below).

As part of Diwali, I will be offering my first fall public Prana Flow classes at Exhale on Sunday, November 3rd morning (10:30 – 12:00) and in the ritual candlelit evening (7:30-9:00) honoring Diwali and the New Moon. Please join us in Venice or in cyber space during this very special time to affirm life - the light of energy within each one of us -with full creative power.

Sending you tender love,

Baby Shiva

Full Moon Blessings - New Samudra Online Courses - India Registration Open

Thursday, October 17, 2013
Dear Friends,

We are back from India landing in D.C. just in time for the shutdown to be over. We are committed more than ever to the rhythms of yoga in our changing world. We will be unplugging this weekend with our D.C. retreat to honor the full moon tomorrow.

Please see our offerings coming up for Diwali at Exhale and online. We love Kerala so much that we are going back in February for the largest gathering of women in the world (last year was 10.5 million) to light the fire to cook for all from the main Shakti temple in Trivandrum. We will not be doing a full teacher training this year (waiting for 2015) but will immerse fully in seven days of Ayurveda treatments and Kalarippayatu as the basis for the Kalari Vinyasa (prep for Kalarippayatu) training.

Blessings,

Shiva

Friday Meditations upon Shakti - Special offer for MD and Costa Rica Retreats

Friday, October 11, 2013
Dear Friends,

Sending you love from Kerala.  Here is a meditation for Navaratri and upcoming programs.

Om Sri Prana Datryai Namaha - I bow to the Giver of Life

Enjoy this regenerative meditation with a simple pause.
Let us relax thinking mind for an inner drink from the Source.
Stream your eyes into your heart and relax your jaw and palette of your mouth.
Visualize a nourishing bath from the crown of your head of any healing quality:
coconut water, honey, nectar.
Feel this sublime nourishment pouring down to every cell through your inner and outer body.
Connect with the revitalizing energy of life at the heart of nature.
Transmute the poisons of stress and toxins by your own inner alchemy.

Today is the shift into the next three days dedicated to Ma Saraswati, the creative energy of supreme regeneration also referred as Sri Sharada Devi (see below info on Chris Tompkins's 1000 names translation project).

Please join us for this special retreat on East Coast till May of 2014.
We have an amazing community coming of almost 100 folks but we have plenty of space so we are opening up individual classes within retreat for those who cannot attend the whole retreat.

Love All Ways,

Shiva
