Our workshop, usually held on the first Sunday of every month, conjures the bridge between yoga and writing. Yoga and meditation practice peels back the layers of experience, allowing you to note the movements of the mind and body. This kind of mindfulness roots you to the present, and returns you to your authentic voice. As writers, we must know our own voices first in order to know the voices of our characters and speakers. Transcendentalists, Surrealists, Beats, and many other writing collectives all used meditation, dreams, and/or other states of altered consciousness to support their creative work. Expect to be taken on a journey.

Sahasrara, our crown chakra is the center of divine energy and wisdom. When all 6 of our major chakras are in balance and harmonized, our seventh blossoms open. Grounding and stability of our first, happiness and freedom of our second, strength and courage of our third, love and compassion of our fourth, purity and self expression of our fifth, and mental clarity of our sixth come together to awaken the divine knowledge and wisdom that sleeps within Sahasrara. When Sahasrara is in harmony, we experience true peace and contentment. We understand and know our true nature, our purpose in life, and are able to align our actions to this purpose. In this special workshop we will balance all 6 of our major chakras to awaken our 7th, the divine center, Sahasrara.

Our camp themes and activities are specially chosen for their enriching qualities and alignment with the goal of offering kids, tweens and teens a fun, empowering, educational and creativity boosting experience. Through problem solving and community building activities, kindness and compassion will be cultivated in a nurturing, positive and supportive atmosphere. Participants will discover and exercise body, breath and spatial awareness. We are thrilled to weave aerial yoga into the classes for our tweens and teens, a practice that utilizes the aerial silk as a tool to explore movement and breath, into our program. Participants will be able to gain balance, increase confidence and build strength in a non-competitive setting. Join us for either one 5-session week or both!

In this special installment of our Chakra Balancing series, we will dive into the wonders of one of the most mysterious and remarkable energy centers, the Bindu Chakra. When brought into focus, the Bindu chakra produces truly astonishing effects. It is a healing center that can promote physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual health. A balanced Bindu chakra brings us harmony and a state of well-being. The yogis teach that this is where Amrita, our nectar of vitality – sometimes called the nectar of immortality (reminiscent of the fountain of youth) – is produced. Through this nectar, all the systems of the mind and body – including the chakras – are said to be brought into harmony and we are left in a state of true peace, bliss, love, and health.
