Finding Freedom: How Wild It Is to Let It Be

with Tara (Becky) Eschenroeder, E-RYT 500, RCYT, YACEP and Narayani Noelle Whittington, E-RYT 500

December 13 - 15, 2019

Navigate toward freedom from discontentment, attachments, and self-doubt by cultivating trust and acceptance during this weekend of self-exploration.

Do you spend more time moving toward where you want to be than being content with where you are? What do you cling to mentally, physically, or emotionally? How could letting go of what you’re clinging to allow you to live more fully and deeply?

Explore these questions and begin to work towards answers as you contemplate yogic philosophy and the chakras (energy centers) for guidance in trust and acceptance.

  • Gain an understanding of the manipura (power center) and anahata (heart center) chakras in relation to the idea of trusting and letting go
  • Apply to your life the philosophy of two of the niyamas (observances): santosha (contentment) and isvara pranidhana (surrender)
  • Learn to listen to the voice of truth that lies within
  • Find acceptance and contentment as you partake in visualization, discussion, journaling, and Yoga Nidra
  • Experience a blissful Vinyasa flow accompanied by Narayani’s soulful musical offerings

Stripping away the distractions of everyday life, we will tune in to the ever-present and universal truth that lies inside all of us.

If you can’t take the whole weekend workshop, you have the option to drop-in a session. Please see the coordinator for a $60 payment per session.

She grew up with a bow and arrow in her hands, learning to pull back with just enough aim and control to send her arrow into the abyss, knowing and trusting it would hit its intended mark. Likewise, she enters…
