Light On Lotus
Vance & Taylor
Intentional Evolution Workshop
The new moon in Aquarius gives us time to explore within ourself what we want to create, to benefit humanity as a whole (Think the song “age of Aquarius” harmony and understanding, sympathy and trust abounding, etc ). In order for us to fully be of service, we must look at the habits, programs and systems we subscribe to/ participate in that hold us back by separating us from one another and our authentic selves (community) & utilize our gifts to benefit said community. Join Vance & Taylor as we utilize the forward-thinking, social energy of Aquarius and the power of the new moon to illuminate our perceptions of self/reality as we set intentions & manifest.
Workshop will include: creative asana and pranayama to evoke and balance the students’ Aquarian energy, hypnotic techniques to clear the mind and implant new habits, sigil magic to manifest new realities, and journaling/group discussion to bring strengthen our intents
Students should bring: Yoga mat, water bottle, journal, and pen
Light On Lotus
In Waves is a creatively inspired sound healing experience. Original music, live field recordings, crystal singing bowls, gong, chimes, drum, medicine melody and other musical instruments honor our wise traditions with fresh presence. Beginning with a meditation ceremony to invoke the sacred and join in common purpose, we cultivate honest listening and welcome the amazing power of sound to transform, heal and inspire.
February's In Waves will invite our embodied consciousness into the miracle tone of 528hz, a harmonic vibration known as 'the love frequency' associated with the manifestation of the golden ratio, DNA repair, as well as physical, spiritual and emotional awakening.

Minerva Arias of Laughing Lotus SF
Ayurveda: Eat to Heal Part 2
Jumping off the foundation of Part One, Minerva leads participants in a more hands-on workshop exploring Ayurveda's perspective on food, nutrition and gut health.
Understanding and supporting our agni (digestive fire) is a cornerstone to our good health in Ayurvedic medicine. In this workshop, Minerva will guide you through the principles of agni, how to detect imbalance in your agni and how to support it for optimal health and digestion.
A review of the rasas from part one and its connection to doshas will lead our hands-on, interactive portion of the workshop. We'll begin with creating menu ideas to understand how to cook nourishing meals for every member of the family - regardless of dosha and using real food as examples of the six tastes. Then we get to blend delicious smoothies together based on the doshas and Ayurvedic principles of support agni.
You'll walk away feeling more confident in being able to use your observation to distinguish and use foods (& its rasas) to maintain your overall health and optimum agni. Empowered with the knowledge to feed yourself, your family and friends regardless of dosha.
If you are interested in this workshop but didn't take part one – no worries! Sign up in advance and Minerva will send you a quick recap so you can jump right in!
