Chakradance Rhythm of the Soul

Chakradance™, Rhythm of the Soul increases the awareness of the connections between mind, body and soul to live our full potential.  Experience the healing power of Chakradance™ in a small, safe group setting, in a sacred and nurturing space where you can surrender to your own experiences, become more in tune with your chakra / energy system and activate your own inner healing.

Chakradance™ improves the vital aspects of our lives like safety / instincts, sexuality, relationships, love, self expression, intuition and self realization.  No matter what age, gender or level of fitness you are, if you want to release stress and emotions, explore your chakras [the energy centers of your body] and get fit at the same time, Chakradance™ is for you.

Chakradance™ is a transformational movement therapy modality that gets deep and long-lasting results.

BE the Peace in the Chaos

Peace is determined, not by external events, but by our internal attitude. The violence we see in the world is a reflection of the confusion and violence inside each one of us.  When we are at Peace within; we can create peace in our world.

H H Param Pujya Swami Chidanand Saraswatiji Maharaj

With so much violence in the world, achieving peace can seem impossible. Each of us has the choice to live in peace or in pieces. When we understand that peace is determined by our internal attitude, we can co-create peace in our little piece of the world with every choice we make in each moment. This 5 session program Be the Peace in the Chaos provides you with simple techniques to journey from fear, anger, anxiety, stress, etc. to discover the essence of who you are and live with joy, bliss, peace and harmony in each moment. Each of us has a role to play for peace and harmony in our world. If you want to co-create peace and harmony in all your relationships with self and others at home, work and leisure, then this 5 session program Be the Peace in the Chaos is for you. You will have opportunities to develop a plan of action to implement concepts learnt that fits into your life, discuss any challenges and determine solutions that are best for you. Some of the topics we will discuss are:
1. tara’s signature system: Intention to Transformation inspired by Pujya Swami Chidanandji Saraswati of Parmarth Niketan Ashram, Rishikesh
2. Thoughts to Destiny – based on teachings of Swami Sivananda of Divine Life Society
3. 5 S’s to discover your Swadharma / own purpose – as revealed to tara
4. Moral & Ethical codes of conduct – the yamas and niyamas of yoga
5. Ahimsa in Action – bring the essence of loving kindness for self, others, Mother Earth and He inhabitants

Ahimsa in Action

Ahimsa is a Sanskrit term meaning ‘not to injure’, ’cause no injury’, ‘do no harm’, ‘compassion’.  Ahimsa is also translated as  ‘non-violence’ a nd applies to all living beings, including Mother Earth and Her inhabitants.  We will explore the essence of ahimsa and discuss various ways in which we can live this concept of non-violence and compassion in thoughts, words and actions. Some of the questions we will explore are:

  • What does it mean to ‘do no harm’ to self, others and Mother Earth?
  • What are some challenges we face to live compassion in our daily life?
  • What are some possible methods to prepare to live ahimsa in each moment.

Ahimsa, an ancient concept of ‘do not harm to self and others’ is applicable in today’s world to benefit  Mother Earth and all Her inhabitants. Our thoughts, words and actions have consequences for future generations.  As trustees of Mother Earth and Her inhabitants it is our responsibility to relate to all with compassion. Only then can there be peace and harmony in our world.

Dance of Shakti 

Friday June 17th to Saturday June 25th, 2022

Returning in the Fall 2023!

Do you want to go beyond your trauma and conditioning to discover your authentic self?  Sometimes we need a map or a practice to guide us to a life filled with ecstasy, vibrancy, radiance, joy, love, bliss and freedom.  The Chakra System of the body is the map! Dance of Shakti, a fusion of Chakradance™ and Shakti Vidya are the practices to heal and discover your true self.

Chakradance™ is a playful, spirited, free flowing dance modality that helps us to balance our chakras for greater well being, happiness, freedom, peace and joy. This moving therapeutic dance modality guides us back to the wholeness of who we truly are.  Chakradance™, a fusion of Jungian philosophy, chakra resonant music, dance, guided visualization and mandala art, gives us the opportunity to tap into our unconscious for healing and clarity, reconnect with the wisdom of our bodies and expands our minds.

Shakti Vidya includes yoga, prana, kriya, mudra and mantra.  We will use yoga, prana and kriya to prepare the body to receive the power of the mantras – the sounds that evoke a set of vibrations in the cosmos.

Dance of Shakti balances the energy of the padmas / chakras to awaken our divine shakti – that inner potential energy, relax our nervous system, enhance our immune system and heal our bodies as we release trauma and fears.  We elevate and enlighten our consciousness to allow the power and grace of the divine Shakti to flow through us.

By the end of this program, you will have a practice for your continued transformational journey to discovering and embracing the essence of who you are in each moment.

Each day begins with yoga and concludes with Ganga Havan and Aarti at sunset; followed by Satsang with Pujya Sadhviji [when she is in the Ashram].

Please have a pen and journal or ipad for reflections, coloured pencils or crayons for mandala art creations and blindfold for the dance meditation.

Dress Code:  Please bring clothes or jewelry with colours of the chakras – red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and purple or white and gold to enhance your inner healing and connections with the body, mind and spirit.

Orientation:  June 17, 2022, at 3 pm. Introduction dance
