BEING AND BECOMING: THE PULSE OF TANTRA
2 DAY PHILOSOPHY MODULE
SATURDAY, MAY 2nd, 9:00am-6:00pm*
SUNDAY, MAY 3rd, 9:00am-6:00pm*
In this 2 Day Immersion for teachers and dedicated students of yoga, meditation, Self-Inquiry and/or philosophy, we will cultivate curiosity as we examine the unknown through the lens of Tantra, in its non-dual form, as presented by The Yoga Spandakarika. We will learn through key stanzas from this ancient illuminating text how everything and everyone in this manifested reality is a pulsing, creative form of the Divine (Shakti), arising from the Ever-Present Infinite Awareness (Shiva). The Yoga Spandakarika lends itself to exciting contemplations which embrace the world rather than reject it.
Elizabeth, who is a skilled yoga, meditation and Self-inquiry teacher, will also present contemplative exercises for a direct and immediate experience of what will be explored within the text. The contemplative exercises will include Pranayama, journaling, mantra, visualization and an experimental approach to some basic hath a yoga asanas with the intention to use all of the senses to connect to “the holy and hidden heart” of our existence. This weekend is an invitation to encounter your greatest Self.
Drop in: $350*
*Please note that both 9:00am In-Depth Classes are included in the price of the above listed 2-Day Philosophy Module.
The In-Depth 9:00am yoga classes can also be taken “a la carte.” See below for more details.

Our lives, as we experience them, are a constant flow of ideas, exchanges and relationships.
Therefore, the intention to hold space to pause, breathe and notice that our existence is a pulsing, creative, never-ending unfolding of consciousness as everything and everyone. Essentially we are both being and becoming. We are that dynamic pulsation arising from the ground of undifferentiated Consciousness.
This mindful, challenging practice will creatively explore the internal forms of yoga (mula bandha and uddiyana bandha) through a sequence of poses based in the exquisite Ashtanga tradition as taught by the wildly intelligent, Richard Freeman. A variety of contemplative and meditation techniques as taught by Sally Kempton will also be woven through the practice. Both Richard and Sally continue to be vital sources of Elizabeth’s own learning and her intention is to encourage an expansion of awareness through every cell of your body/mind, while cultivating an experimental approach to discovering your Essential Self with curiosity and wonder.
