“If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.” – Lao Tzu.
It's easy to doubt the power and influence you can have as one individual. We don't often notice the impact we have because we are in our own bubble, in our own head, spreading our energy around without seeing the ripple effect it causes. The words you use, the actions you take, the relationships you nurture, the way you react and respond, all carry a vibration that is affects the world around you.
"The more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world." Deborah Adele.
What we need to realize is that we are never alone. We are never standing as one individual. We are in relation to others at all times. When we tap into this collective energy, with like-minded yet vastly different people, we can create a transcendent experience that is only possible within a group setting.
“The world we are experiencing today is the result of our collective consciousness, and if we want a new world, each of us must start taking responsibility for helping create it.” – Rosemary Fillmore Rhea
Experience Collective is a workshop that my good friend Sanja and I have created. Our goal is to facilitate a transformative group experience, while also catering to the individual impact through personal development.
“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate” – Carl Jung.
I have been studying and playing with the Yamas and Niyamas for almost a year now. These are the ten moral and ethical principles from ancient Hindu texts that serve as an integral part of yoga philosophy. These concepts are the simple guidelines to living a life of purpose and health. This workshop will begin with a discussion around the Yamas and Niyamas. I will introduce you to the wisdom kept alive for thousands of years and how to integrate them into your life in our modern world. Through the process of inner-evolution, we will work as a group to discover the collective energy that we want to foster and nurture as well.
We will then dive into a heated Kundalini practice as we hold space for each other. Whether you have experienced Kundalini or have never heard of it, Sanja will guide you through in a way that feels inclusive and familiar. We build heat to burn off old habits and patterns, and tap into our expansive awareness.
“There is no way to overstate the magnitude of the collective spiritual transformation that will occur when we shift from food of violent oppression to food of gentleness and compassion.” Will Tuttle.
We will finish the evening with nourishing snacks and drink from local entrepreneurs, and an introduction to a 30 Day Challenge that will sustain the community and the support system we just built, while tapping into the importance of developing a muscle of self-discipline.
Although the workshop is scheduled for three hours on a Sunday night, we are actually creating a community of game-changers that will work together for one month. You can contribute and participate as much or as little as you would like, but trust that there will be opportunity for connection and growth that you have not encountered before. Sanja and I have big hearts and big dreams, and we want you to be a part of the magic of this workshop.
“With self-discipline most anything is possible.” Theodore Roosevelt.
