Shanah Tovah - Navaratri Blessings!

Dear Friends on the Path,

Right now all over the planet, there are at least 1.5 billion people engaged in internal prayers during the largest holi-days of the fall, Rosh Hashanah and Navaratri. Whether you are at home or at temple, in India, Israel or the USA, if you are in the northern hemisphere, the entire earth is changing with the peak of creation meeting the force of dissolution. The fertile darkness of this dissolution process to come (in the form of late fall-winter) serves as a powerful catalyst for our own integrative shadow work that began with the Fall Equinox through the peak of darkness in the Winter Solstice.  It is beautiful to feel the global swelling of this prayer cycle - meditations, mantras and rituals that give renewed strength to all beings at this time.

This Saturday we will be “Awakening the Inner Danda” as our core essence as part of global Navaratri time. In my Kalari in Thiruvanathapuram, the greatest rituals of the year are happening at this time as the space and the weapons for training are blessed and the beginning of new cycles of study are initiated.

For the first time, we are offering the first of a three-part series beginning this Saturday as an introduction to Kalari in the CVN tradition as well PranaDandaYoga with Demetri.  Come to one session or all and feel the centering and awakening of vital energy connected with these practices.

We are thrilled about the other programs connected with the coming full moons in October and November that will bring us into greater synch with the once-in-a-lifetime occurrence of 11-11-11, for which we are gathering a Kripalu retreat. Look for some special PULSE 108 yoga trance dances in La Jolla and at Exhale as part of month the October Intensive period.

Finally, our love and blessings go out to Twee and Jason and their new precious and beautiful daughter born on the eve of Navaratri. Let us celebrate renewed life and inspiration for the path.


See you in the sacred flow
