Integral Kundalini Awakening

Integral-essential, intrinsic, fundamental

Kundalini- an energy at rest sitting at the base of the spine that through conscious practice is brought into movement or flow. A flow that arises within the energy body of the chakras, bringing within its rising a union of yin and yang. A consciousness shift occurs with a profound sense of deepened connection with the soul. A sensation of deep quiet unfolds with the sense that one has fallen into a deep ocean or desert of still consciousness.

Awakening-an act or moment of becoming suddenly aware

The Integral Kundalini Awakening intensive serves as a catalyst in personal growth by giving focused intention into the kundalini as a point of healing & growth. Refinements are taught within the Microcosmic Orbit and the Chakra Energy Meditation to support and awaken the Kundalini. Attention and discernment is brought to the energy meditation and its elements of practice. Individual attention is brought to each students needs.

Prerequisite: completion of 6 months of Cultivating an Intuitive Life along with an embodied daily practice with the Chakra Energetic Meditation. If interested, the first step is attendance in Cultivating An Intuitive Life.

Price: $125.00.

Be prepared: The work is intense. I ask that you come to the intensive rested and willing to step into yourself.

The Root Chakra:  A Creative One Day Retreat
9:00 AM09:00

The Root Chakra: A Creative One Day Retreat

The root chakra is about a dynamic connection with the moment. Being here, being grounded, reveals an important part of what the root chakra offers us as human beings. Being present, yes, and also being in a creative relationship with the moment. In many ways expressed in the affirmation I AM. The willingness to allow our infinite and intuitive nature expand into the moment until its full expression is seen multi-dimensionally.

Using turtle shells as a framework for creativity along with meditations with the chakras, we will explore the root chakra with each student creating her own painted/mosaic turtle shell.

Class limited to 8 students

To be held at the Simplicity Farm Treehouse (weather permitting)

Silent Saturdays @Simplicity Farm- The Stillness of Winter
8:30 AM08:30

Silent Saturdays @Simplicity Farm- The Stillness of Winter

In recognition of the need in the world for more quiet, we have created Silent Saturdays. Once a month here at Simplicity Farm we host a Silent Retreat. Our February 9th retreat offers the opportunity to step into the depths & stillness of winter. These retreats provide opportunities to be both inside and outside - meditation, yoga, journalling, forest bathing at the treehouse. The opportunity to rest, rejuvenate and regenerate. The days activities are open-ended with each participant choosing how to spend their day in silence. A day of silence is a powerful way to be with yourself while supported by the presence of community.

As we step into silence, as we settle within, as we breathe, our thoughts also settle. We are able to hear our own wisdom arising from within. In the process our inner critic, our fears and anxieties are carried from the shadows and brought to the light of conscious awareness. With time and space within silence, we allow the space of silence to create healing and growth.

At 2pm we break our silence and talk about our experience and as well discuss ways to allow inner quiet to meet our daily lives effectively.

Where: Simplicity Farm 18441 Queen Anne Road Upper Marlboro, MD 20774

Who: Facilitators: Martin Perkins and Linda Jackson
