The Illuminated Path: a Year of You! Course 8
Time & Location
About the Event
2019, The Year of Self-Care Practices to Raise Your Vibration and Create Peace of Mind
Course 8 begins our spiritual development phase, the final phase of The Illuminated Path Year 1.
We will begin our exploration of the world of energy, how to sense & feel energy and begin to read energy. We will also work on understanding and beginning to read auras.
To complete our body study, we have a guest speaker to provide information on Ayurveda, a holistic system of medicine that has been practiced in India for over 5,000 years. It is often called the "Mother of All Healing." Spreading to the West as a 'sister science' of Yoga, it offers tremendous insight into how we can live healthier, more balanced lives. Through understanding our connectedness to Nature, Ayurveda sees each person as a unique combination of the 5 elements - ether, air, fire, water and earth. These elements come together in different ways to form different physical constitutions, personality and emotional traits, and tendencies for specific diseases. In this session, we will discuss ways to protect and maintain the health of a healthy person, recognize the unique individualized qualities of each person - a combination of physical, mental and emotional characteristics and identify new strategies in which to live in harmony with nature and seasonal changes.
There will be a 60-minute break for a community lunch mid-session. For Course 8, we will have a catered Ayurvedic lunch (vegan and gluten-free) for $12.
Class fee: $50 + $12 for lunch
*As with all things alternative, this information is not intended as a diagnosis or treatment of any illnesses. You are encouraged to seek care as needed through your medical practitioner.
*A mind, body, spirit approach to wellness is essential to achieve the fullest sense of well-being. On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your self-care practice? Are you first or last on your priority list? What practices did you begin over the last few years only to drop after a few weeks or months? Do you feel selfish for taking time for yourself, but often feel overwhelmed, overbooked, over burdened?
How would you like to create self-care that leads to greater peace of mind, sense of satisfaction, a feeling of balance ….
Within The Illuminated Path we will explore the self, the evolution of your life path and develop a practice that leads to improvement in all aspects of your day. This is an opportunity to find balance for the mind-body-spirit of you. Fitness, health, spiritual, mental and emotional well-being … it all matters equally. If one aspect of self is out of balance, it will eventually affect the rest.
A house is only as strong and stable as its foundation. In The Illuminated Path, we are diving deep into the core of being. Moving back to the basics, removing all the fluff, all the hype, and directing focus to stabilize our foundation. The only question that remains is “how much do you want to shift your life, your energy, your sense of wellness?”
You are cordially invited to begin this explorational Year of You! We will devote time and attention to understanding how we arrived at today, determine what balance looks like for us and develop a plan to get “there.”
We will take a trip around the Medicine Wheel, learn some of the old ways of self-care with herbal remedies and even create all-natural self-care products. We will study the chakras, our emotions and the impact on our physical bodies. With expert guidance in the areas of naturopathy, homeopathy, nutrition, exercise, meditation and more, we have the opportunity to find the mid-point of our pendulum swing - the pause, the still point, the place of balance.
We will extend our exploration into the spiritual self. Whether through astrology, numerology or other forms of insight we will locate and enhance our natural flow of internal guidance.
Each month we will have one class and one follow up meeting online. Throughout the month, you will have access to an online forum through which support, encouragement & answers can be found.
Are you ready to make yourself a priority? Would you like to open to the grace, wisdom and beauty within?
