The Solstice is a beautiful day for ritual: it’s a day when “People attune themselves to the rhythms of the natural world and invite the seasons of waxing and waning, of birth, growth, death and renewal to reverberate more consciously in their lives.”

And why honor the solstice with 108 salutations?  The diameter of the Sun multiplied by 108 equals the distance between Sun and Earth, and the diameter of the Moon multiplied by 108 equals the distance between Earth and Moon. The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth. That is why we have 108 beads in a mala.

Hindu deities have 108 names. There are said to be 108 energy lines, or nadis, converging to form the heart chakra. Marma points are like Chakras, or intersection of energy, with fewer converging energy lines. The earth cycle is supposed to be of 2160 years = 20 x 108. There are 108 stitches in a baseball. Etc, etc . . . it’s a magic number!

Align and Alight

Join Deb GItterman, an extraordinary instructor who is visiting from the studio Madzy practices at in her hometown of Princeton, NJ.

This workshop will focus on alignment and anatomy to get you stronger and feel lighter. Building and using core strength, lining up the pelvic and shoulder girdles, and creating stability in the joints provides the foundation of a more aligned practice. Working on arm balances? Handstands? Hate falling out of half moon? Feeling crunchy in your back and neck? Get aligned and lighten UP!

A Journey with Shaman, Alleson Lansel

Ebb & Flow is a remembering workshop; a remembering of our energetic relationship to the Cosmos. Within our remembering we can become aware of & heal personal beliefs that confine & define us in ways that do not serve us.

This is an experiential time together where we will learn a long forgotten energetic nurturing between ourselves & all living matter. We will learn how we assume our rightful place within this energetic exchange.

Using guided meditation, journey work, & simple group toning we will connect, release, heal, receive, nurture, & flow.
