Sankalpa comes from two words: "San", which means that which resonates with spirit, and "Kalpa", which is an intention. The goal of the Sankalpa practice is to embed your intention into the deeper realms of your unconscious, enabling you to realize your life's purpose and manifest it into your living with grace and ease.
This Winter Solstice evening, Sarah will lead you through simple seated asanas, integrating the kriya techniques used to open the passage to the unconscious, which governs us. Alan will introduce ancient Tantric techniques to form your sankalpa and plant it into the unconscious realm so that you can know your own truth and manifest it into your living. The evening will provide you with the tools to achieve your Solstice and New Year's resolutions in all aspects of your life: personal, professional, emotional, and spiritual.
Do dress comfortably, though yoga attire and mats are not needed.
