Costa Rica Living Flow Ashram - Early Bird Ends Oct 1

Thursday, September 26, 2013
Dear Friends,

We are so happy to be returning to our favorite New Year retreat on the sea in Nosara, Costa Rica. This is a powerful spot for a New Year Pranafication - where a daily immersion of prana flow yoga, meditation, pranadandayoga, kalari, mantra bonfires, massage, healing papaya and fruits, natural Tican cuisine meet the elements - healing ocean surf, ecologically protected beach, open sky, ocean bonfires and fresh prana.

Early Bird Registration ends October 1st - every year this retreat is full and this year we have two weeks beginning with the Winter Solstice but half the rooms so connect with our great yogadventurer, Kristi Mosley, who has been to Costa Rica with her beloved Dan for five  years in a row to assure your place (special discount for two weeks)! Dan learned to surf in Costa and is now soaring on the outside. We are grateful to the amazing community at Blue Spirit and from around the world that makes this pilgrimage with us every year. Blue Spirit has many solar-powered rooms and is an incredible example of being in harmony with the environment.

Please connect to Kristi (contact info below) as first come first serve if you are interested.

For the Waves,

All love

Full Moon Blessings - New Online Courses Beginning

Thursday, September 19, 2013
Dear Friends,

This full moon - the last of the summer days brings us towards the Fall Equinox - the midpoint between the Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice when we enter the last quarter of the year.

This week our hearts have been stirred by the earth changes on land, floods and sea. Yoga offers an inner anchor within the changes of life.
We hope to see you at Exhale for the Global Mala, Live on Google + or to be aware of you in the quantum space on Sept. 21st UN International Peace Day and Coral Brown's wedding the next day!

Grateful for life.
Love all ways,

Shiva

Yoga Energy Activation - Global Mala Project - OTM

Tuesday, September 17, 2013
Our energy future has no borders. The fuel we burn effects the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat – we are interconnected as every community is “downwind” of the next.
 
Dear Friends,
 
In a bow to everyone from D.C. to Colorado, Fukushima Japan leakage, Hawaii spills and Syria, this is a week to move into collective prayer, meditation and action. Meditation is an ancient, ancestral and often untapped power to help navigate positive change in challenging times.

Just last night I got an email  for the upcoming Global Mala meditation to become part of the Live Online Google+ . We only have a few days to spread the word for anyone who wants to be part of the collective meditation. Please join us wherever you are in the world and if you are local come participate in raising consciousness that will be shared around the world.

All of your donations on that day are also bringing meditation in action with Off the Mat and YogaEnergyActivism.

Please share or forward this email to invite anyone in the world to participate with the power of Fall Equinox and UN International Peace Day.

Blessings,

Shiva

Tending the Heart Fire Retreat in Maryland

Monday, September 16, 2013
Dear Friends,

This is the only retreat I will be offering on the East Coast and the first one focused on the inner aspects of the book I have been writing that will be released this Dec. 21, 2013.

I am grateful for Aimee McBride, Maria Garre, Kristen Townsend, Katherine Kuzner, Andrew McAuley of the wonderful Ananda Shala Prana Flow-based studio in Frederick MD for finding such a beautiful country retreat to be together as the magic of fall begins. We will just be coming back from Kerala from Navaratri with blessings to share.

There are special rates for Prana Flow teacher trainees and mentors as the retreat counts for elective teacher training credit.

We hope you can join us.
Happy Mon(moon)day
Love all ways,
Shiva

New Moon - 2014 Calendar Unveiled - Ganesh Chaturthi - Rosh Hashanah - Bhakti Fest

Wednesday, September 04, 2013
Dear Friends on the Path,

The New Moon is an auspicious time to begin new cycles and this new moon coincides with Ganesh Chaturthi and is the same time as the Jewish High Holidays of Rosh Hashanah and the two-week "sandhya" period before the Fall season begins. This is a wonderful time to realign oneself with the greater earth changes. The next full moon will initiate the Fall Equinox, and Global Mala around that time is a spark for peace all of humanity.  With this coming new moon, a 108 day period begins from the New Moon until the Winter Solstice Dec. 21st.

We hope to see you this weekend as we are heading to Bhakti Fest www.bhaktifest.com with a Prana Flow tribe for Embodying the Sacred-Mandala of Asanas. See you next week at Exhale for those original energetic vinyasa sequences from the foundation and for a special Global Mala gathering on Sept. 21st.

Shanah Tovah! Jai Ganesh!


Love all ways,

Shiva
