Special Events

Lightening Your Load: A Personal Growth Weekend
Date / Time: Sat. July 26, 2014, from 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Location: The People Sanctuary, Mechanicsburg
Phone: (717) 458-5336
This is an exciting opportunity for you to carve some time out of your busy life, really look at how things are going for you in a loving and supportive space, and get rid of some garbage! Our main goal will be to get out of our own way and trust. The teachings of Kundalini Yoga (as well as many other teachings) tell us that we are designed for joy, success, and prosperity. Yogi Bhajan liked to say, "Happiness is your birthright." However, as human beings living on planet earth, we get a lot of other messages. And as human beings, we often buy into these messages and really get in our own way when it comes to being joyful, successful, and prosperous. Through yoga, meditation, activities of creative expression, connecting with nature, and a lot of supportive discussion, we will do the best job we can to get rid of the garbage we have picked up in our lives! You will leave this workshop feeling a whole lot lighter than when you came in.
We will use the chakras as a basic framework for our exploration and personal growth.
Chakra #1: Security / What are you afraid of?
Chakra #2: Creativity / How do you express yourself in the world?
Chakra #3: Power / What makes you feel strong (or weak)?
Chakra #4: Kindness and Compassion / What touches your heart?

This community-building activity began in February of 2006 at the request of B.J.'s yoga students. It has become a very safe and supportive group not only to learn about and practice meditation, but also to nurture your spiritual journey. Wear comfortable clothes. No meditation experience is required.
There is no set fee for this group, but a love offering will be gratefully accepted.

''You must remember one thing: When you have knowledge, you will not have fear.''
Yoga Bhajan, Master of Kundalini Yoga
