Kama Shakti: The Path of Desire and Unbridled Purpose

with Katie Silcox

September 7 - 9, 2018

“If there is ONE Yoga workshop that I have seen alter people’s lives, in the quickest way imaginable, it’s this one!”—Katie Silcox

Yoga is much more than physical poses. It is an ancient system that scientifically enables you to unravel the limitations and obstacles that are getting in the way of your deepest purpose and fulfillment. Come learn how to more fully embody who you are and who you are meant to become during this workshop designed to help you explore the path of desire as a means to fulfill your purpose.

This event is available for anyone who is ready to uncover their soul’s purpose and feel more connected to the aliveness and joy that is possible in this lifetime.

In this workshop, there will be three main sessions:

1. Unlocking and Unblocking

This session will provide an overview of our weekend, including the key philosophies and elements of the Tantric worldview. We will do a deep asana, pranayama, and meditation practice for unblocking and unlocking the first layer of energetic and physical holding patterns—the obstacles are keeping us from our true self—a self that feels infused with the SACRED!

2. The Path of Desire: Fulfilling Your Deep Purpose

According to the Yoga tradition, our soul is fueled by four purusharthas, or four driving desires.
In this workshop, you will systematically explore how to better tap into the fulfillment of these longings in your own life.

  • Dharma: the desire for purpose—to truly know who you are meant to be
  • Artha: the desire for health, security, and finances—the ability to experience abundance and to prosper in this world
  • Kama: the desire for deep pleasures like intimacy, sensuality, and love
  • Moksha: the desire for spiritual fulfillment, fearlessness, and enduring freedom

3. The Missing Link to Your Life’s Fulfillment

The journey of learning how to fulfill the four desires is remiss without one special element. Come find out the missing link to living a purposeful life! Through these beautiful yogic “secrets,” you will leave this session with deeper calm and a clearer vision for your future. We will also deepen our knowledge of our life’s purpose, igniting the power of our resolve, dismantling the patterns that sabotage our dreams, and deepening our ability to tap into the unwavering calm that is our inner teacher.

All levels welcome. Workshop includes asana and lecture.
