Embodied Astrology

Jeffrey Hinshaw


Embodied Astrology

A two hour workshop teaching how to bring the cosmic energy of astrology down into the energetic and physical body, to activate and awaken it into your yoga asana and meditation practice. During this workshop, the basics of astrology are broken down, with an introduction to the personality planets and the current transits. Then, participants are gently guided through light yoga asana (mostly restorative postures) inspired by the current transits. Participants will also be given tools to learn how to incorporate embodied astrology in their own practice, and how to utilize this with their own birth chart.
Bio: Jeffrey Hinshaw is a soul-centered astrologer and esoteric practitioner. His experience is deeply rooted in ritual immersion, embodied health, somatic studies, and personal myth making. He is the founder and facilitator of the well-renowned Brooklyn Fools Tarot Journey and is the host of the weekly astrology podcast Cosmic Cousins.

Yancy Schwartz


Dharma Master Class

Dharma Yoga is a Hatha Raja Yoga practice. In Hatha (Sun/Moon) you hold the poses a little longer and the Raja (Royal) refers to the study of the Eight Limbs of yoga, or the Royal Path. This practice includes chanting, pranayama, meditation as well as Asana (postures). Dharma Yoga is from the lineage of the living yoga master Sri Dharma Mittra. A hallmark of Dharma Yoga is the variety of postures that are explored. In this workshop Yancy will introduce and help you learn a few of Dharma's 908 postures. Yancy studied with Dharma and taught at his studio in New York.

La Mer


Midsummer Moon Bath

Join sound weaver La Mer for a nourishing soma (moon) sound bath composed with crystal singing bowls, bells, chimes, synodic gong and medicine melodies that attune our inner waters with the moon tides.

Notes on Sound:

Chanting, singing, and rhythm has been used for healing since the dawn of time.
A conscious, relaxed state induces an alpha brain-wave pattern. This causes the immune system to release molecules containing various kinds of energy, some which travel to the brain to support cranial sacral (crown to root) circuitry, assisting in the overall healing process on a cellular level.
Vibration effects every part of our being.
