Yoga Poetica: A Creative Afternoon of Yoga and Writing

Shawn Parell and David Keplinger

Hosted at YogaSource, Santa Fe
Saturday October 19, 2019, 1-4pm, San Mateo Studio

Discover the relationship between your yoga practice and your essential creativity in this inspired afternoon. Distilling the best of a three day program they previously co-taught at renowned Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health, David and Shawn will offer an asana practice designed to stoke our awareness of the creative currents within the embodied experience of flow before moving into an integrative guided meditation and, finally, a specific writing prompt to guide personal creative expression. This workshop will include curated readings from ancient texts to contemporary American poets, an exploration of the role of poetry within the yoga tradition, instructions for the daily mindfulness practice of imbibing the written word for energetic effect, and reflective sharing on the creative process. No previous writing experience is necessary; please bring a journal and pencil or pen. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of students.
Cost: $50.00 includes tax

Taste of the Goddess: Shakti Immersion for Sharad Navaratri

4 – 6:30pm | Sunday, October 6, 2019

Hosted at YogaSource, Santa Fe

One of our greatest spiritual invitations is to shift our consciousness from a perspective of lack to one of intrinsic abundance. Nature beckons us to this journey out of fear-thinking as autumn ripens, the trees release their leaves, the darkness grows, and we perceive again the ancient truth of letting go.

In an echo of nature’s impulse, practitioners in India have celebrated for centuries the holy autumn festival of Sharad Navaratri, nine nights of devotional attunement to the primordial source of creation and love. The harvest season is honored with a deep bow to the Mother, known as Shakti — the Goddess in her multiform. In some places each of nine auspicious nights is dedicated to a particular form of Durga, the force of transformation who wisely wields her weapons of consciousness in Indian mythology. In other places, the maternal energies represented by Durga, Lakshmi, and Saraswati are recognized in sequence to serve a spiritual and psychological unfolding.

In this experiential nod to the festival of Navaratri, we’ll touch the Goddess through a full-spectrum sadhana (practice) of mantra, mudra, and Shakti namaskar movement meditation as transmitted by Shawn’s teacher, Shiva Rea, within the Prana Flow lineage. All are welcome.
