Kriya Yoga: Ancient Science of Meditation - Public Lecture

Kriya Yoga: Ancient Science of Meditation - Public Lecture

Join us at the Telluride Yoga Center for a public lecture on Kriya Yoga: Kriya Yoga is an ancient method of living and meditation that cultivates body, mind, intellect and awareness of soul using powerful meditative and yoga disciplines. It helps us to experience the three divine qualities of light, vibration, and sound by using techniques of concentration, posture and breathing. This develops one-pointed mind, which enables us to penetrate the deepest levels of consciousness and to change our lives.  Kriya Yoga teaches that any action kri, is done by ya, the indwelling soul.  It is a universal spiritual discipline that crosses all divisions and boundaries.

Cacao & Medicine Wheel Flow

COLORADO CACAO, YOGA & SOUND

YOGA - CACAO - SHAMANIC SONGS - SOUND HEALING

Explore the fusion of the ancient practices of Yoga and Shamanism! Join CJ Ananda on a heart expanding journey of Cacao, Yoga & Sound.

Yoga (union with the Divine) and Shamanism (interaction with the spirit world) both are practices traditionally designed to lead us to the direct flow of wisdom and the embodiment of spirit. We shall be working with the elements as shamanic archetypes to create a conscious conversation between our inner Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine. Through this practice we will come into harmonious union aligning ourselves to our true nature.

We begin the class with a cup of Sacred Cacao to connect us to Spirit. Using the essence of cacao to open clear channels between our Mulhadara chakra (the body), the Anahata chakra (the heart) and the sahasrara chakra (Great Spirit); activating an intense and transformational practice. Our experience will be deepened by the constant thread of Sacred Sounds and Icaros (Shamanic songs) performed live by our team.

Winter Solstice Celebration- Donation Event

Winter Solstice Celebration- Donation Event

Winter Solstice Celebration - Wednesday, December 21st 7-8pm

It’s time to turn the soil and plant the seeds!
The darkness of winter solstice is compared to the rich darkness of fertile soil. The waning light and fall season leading up to this point has offered the opportunity to reflect on the past year and digest our experiences and our efforts (reap the harvest).

“The word solstice is derived from the Latin sol (sun) and sistere (to stand still), because at the solstices, the Sun stands still in declination; that is, the seasonal movement of the Sun’s path (as seen from Earth) comes to a stop before reversing direction.”

According to tantric philosophy this “sacred pause” is the essence of origin. This still moment in time represents the ground of being and the birthplace of new life and possibilities. This pause is called a “sandhya” –a juncture of time and space in whichtransition and transformation occurs. The six month period that follows - winter to summer - is referred to as the “uttarayana” cycle and is suffused with the forces of growth and expansion.

We know that energy flows where our attention goes. With this in mind, we will plant seeds of intention, prayers, dreams and visions for the new year to come.
Offering and aligning the flow of breath and life force consciousness to unite individual and divine will.

Please join Kristin Taylor, Babsi Glaznig and Ted Faris for music, 27 chandra namaskars and 108 mantra japa (sacred chants) as we bow to the greater forces of life energy.

This is a donation event. All donations will be given to Angel Baskets. Please bring $10-$20 donation and food for the food bank.

Please stay for the Women’s Circle at 8:30pm led by Madeline Gonzalez and Monica Kelly Warren. This circle will initiate the cultivation of conscious community in relationship with the rhythms of nature for the upcoming year. Check out the Facebook group “Telluride Women’s Circle” for more information.
