SATURDAY JUNE 17
11:15AM-1PM Earth Prayer The Barn
Earth Prayer. “The union of Spirit and Earth may guide us in tending the fire of our being as we explore its sustainable expression in the world.”
Yoga’s connection with nature and its concern for the environment is often lost in the modern Yoga movement. However, Yoga is deeply based on the rhythms of nature and the elements, and through this practice we are shown the reflection of nature inside ourselves as being interconnected and everything of which we are made. In Earth Prayer, we will integrate an earth-flow practice, visualization meditation, prayer/vision work, and conversation of how to stay activated and connected to nature (inside + out), even when in the midst of a city.
