“You are what your deep, driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed. As your deed is, so is your destiny.” -Brihadaranyaka Upanishad
The new year represents the start of new beginnings and infinite possibilities. It is an auspicious time to set new intentions and let go of habits that no longer serve us. The Sankalpa practice is a Tantric based ritual that empowers and aligns each of us with our soul’s highest intention. The word Sankalpa comes from two words in sanskrit: San, which means that which resonates with spirit, and Kalpa, which is a vow. The magic of the Sankalpa practice is that is enables us to reveal and embed our intention into the deepest realms of our unconscious. Once we have the word, or affirmation that vibrates with our soul’s calling, we can then begin the practice of manifesting it into our living.
In this workshop, Sarah Platt-Finger will lead you through a yoga practice integrating breath and visualization techniques to open the energetic passage to the unconscious, which is what governs us. She will then guide you through a series of mantras (sound) and mudras (hand gestures) to help you form your sankalpa and plant it into the root of your being. The session will end with a powerful meditation led by Yoga Master Alan Finger, so that you can know your own truth and manifest it into your living. The afternoon will provide you with the tools you need to achieve your New Year’s intention in all aspects of your life: personal, professional, emotional, and spiritual.
