The Chakra System as a Model for Integration
Thursday, August 27, 6 -8 pm Puerto Vallarta Time
The chakras are an age old system for self-knowledge and transformation and can be used to create a visual and visceral experience of energy, accessible to people of all backgrounds and traditions.
In this workshop, we will spend the first hour learning about the chakra system as a whole and the seven main chakras individually. The second hour will be spent on exploring the ways we can use this knowledge in our every day life and practice to stay connected to various parts of our being, especially in service to healing and wholeness.

Social Distance and Social Change ~ Cultivating Wisdom Presence in Virtual Spaces: A four-part workshop series for thought leaders
This four-part workshop series was designed specifically for folks in leadership roles – either by design or by proxy – who are now in the position of wanting, or having, to speak to or on topics that are challenging and often polarizing. We may feel very competent in our chosen profession – yoga teacher, therapist, chaplain, meditation teacher – but are suddenly being asked to rise to a new level of addressing and facilitating complex conversations in the virtual realm, for which we feel unprepared.
In this inspiring and lively series, we will learn how to build our own wisdom presence and to use the virtual realm effectively – including best practices and potential pit falls. We will learn what being a deep listener looks like in virtual spaces and how to create a sense of connection and goodwill among our participants. We will learn how to frame and address questions related to spiritual awakening and how to inspire the deep inner questioning that is key to surviving and thriving in these challenging times.
At the end of this four-part series, the participant will:
- Be able to identify and use best practices for connecting and building community in virtual spaces
- Develop new skills for framing current social challenges in a spiritual context
- Have specific practices to cultivate an authentic personal wisdom presence in daily life
- Understand deep listening skills, specifically for helping stay present and focused online
- Gain an understanding of the social and spiritual principles of allyship and how to practice it
- Be able to identify and put into practice specific strategies for creating and leading inclusive, diverse virtual spaces
- Have an understanding of their own role as a thought-leader, professional, friend, family member, or ally in relation to social change
- Leave with specific tools for facilitating meaningful, open discussions about highly-charged topics including inequity, politics, and privilege.
Workshop pricing: Sliding Scale $100 – $175 for the entire 4 Part Session
