Full Moon Healing Circle Mon, Sep 24
Now's the time to get clear and find a balance...The moon is FULL on Monday, September 24 at 7:52PM (during class) ! GuruSurya will lead some powerful kundalini yoga... It's a powerful time to integrate our opposing energies and rise into this phase in a healthy and balanced way. We'll either do the Healing Ring of Tantra (if we have 11 souls present) or the Full Moon Antar Naad (if we have less than 11).
7:30pm - 9:00pm
No experience necessary :)
Advanced registration is appreciated

Celebrate Guru Ram Das' birthday!

Sat Sep 29
Sun Sep 30

Learn more about Guru Ram Das below....
Every Fall we have the blessing of celebrating Guru Ram Das' birthday. Known as the Lord of Miracles, Guru Ram Das was the 4th Sikh Guru and embodied humility, service, and deep devotion. Guru Ram Das held a special place in Yogi Bhajan's heart. Our community looks to Guru Ram Das for guidance, healing, and protection. Yogi Bhajan gave us a special sadhana to do in celebration of Guru Ram Das's birthday.
September 28 - October 8: For 11 days prior to his birthday we chant the shabad Dhan Dhan Ram Das Guru for 31 minutes. This is the Shabad of Miracles. We do this together at each others homes at 7pm.
Yogi Bhajan has described this occasion as a powerful time for the fulfillment of prayers and a time of great blessing. One idea is to write your prayers down and have a place a special box or container that everyone can add to as the 11 days progress. Then, after the birthday sadhana, have a ceremony and burn the prayers, sending them out to the Infinite. Allow the divine healing energy of Guru Ram Das to take care of you.
Would you like to help organize, prepare and share a potluck meal with SIMRIT and her band on September 20? Simrit will be in Portland for a workshop at Mandala on Tuesday, Sep 19 and a concert at Alberta Rose Theater on Wednesday, Sep 20.

Arrive to Alberta Rose Theater at 6pm and share the meal with Simrit and the band. You will also receive TWO free concert tickets for your support and seva.
Needed: 4 people to prepare 2 healthy, organic dishes that will feed 15 people a small-medium portion (specific dietary needs will be given to you).
1 person to bring drinks and desserts, and to also set the table and bring everything needed for the meal (plates, forks, spoons, napkins, cups, serving spoons) as well as flowers and perhaps a couple of table cloths.

Our minds release 1000 thoughts per wink of an eye. Some of these thoughts get lost in the unconscious, and some get stuck in the subconscious and affect the conscious mind. These thoughts become feelings, emotions, desires, multi-realities or fantasies. Instead of mastering our mind, often our mind and thoughts direct us, which can cause impulsive decisions, poor communication and self-imposed stress.
White Tantric Yoga® enables you to break through these subconscious blocks, Read more...
"It is not that it is religious or it is not religious, it is called attitude of gratitude, it is called thanking God for giving you elbows and knees, giving you ribs and the glandular system, giving you head and skull and brain." _~Yogi Bhajan
