We will undertake the study of this bestselling book by Michael A. Singer and revisit Meditation and Self-Awareness with a "new-old"  lens.  Amazon says:  "Whether this is your first exploration of inner space, or you’ve devoted your life to the inward journey, this book will transform your relationship with yourself and the world around you. You’ll discover what you can do to put an end to the habitual thoughts and emotions that limit your consciousness. By tapping into traditions of meditation and mindfulness, author and spiritual teacher Michael A. Singer shows how the development of consciousness can enable us all to dwell in the present moment and let go of painful thoughts and memories that keep us from achieving happiness and self-realization."

Retiring Your Family Karma

Not currently offered

Cost: $325

Pre-requisite: Meditation Level 2 or Rainbow Ladder 11

Instructor: Ramaa

 

Our deepest emotions stem from the joys and unresolved fears of our “inner child”.  True healing is possible only through the intentional and continued support of a loving and well-balanced adult.

 

This 8-week class will focus on creating such an adult within ourselves – one who can integrate the needs of the inner child with the responsibilities of adulthood.

This 8-week study group will combine the knowledge of the chakras and the message of the Gita to look deeper into our family’s manifestations.  We will study the karma of our family as a group of souls on a joint project and reflect on our respective roles in resolving it.  Our discussions and reflections will take off from the book “Retire Your Family Karma” by Dr. Ashok Bedi and Boris Matthews.

Please purchase your copy of Retire Your Family Karma in our store boutique.

From Karma to Co-Creation

 

Tuesdays 12:45 - 2:45 pm

January 24 - March 14

Cost:  $325

Prerequisite: None

Instructor: Ramaa

Far from feeling like helpless victims of a reality that does not serve our spirit, we are co-creators who need to change what we can and make peace with what we cannot.   In this class, we will draw from the combined wisdom of Pema Chodron's Comfortable with Uncertainty and Esther and Jeremy Hicks's Ask and It is Given. Our explorations will include class discussions, exercises from both books, dreaming up a new reality and working towards manifesting it. As co-creators of our world, we will sort through our struggles, build courage and cultivate serenity.

Copies of the books Comfortable with Uncertainty and Ask and It is Given will be available in our studio boutique.

 

Book Group: Soul Mates by Thomas Moore

Not currently offered

Cost:  $325

Prerequisites: None

Instructor: Ramaa

In this book group we are following Thomas Moore's wisdom, this time into the realm of relationships. While a previous book, Original Self, guided us to find the Divinity in ourselves with all our imperfections and inconsistencies, this one guides us towards finding the Divine in our relationships with all the challenges that the relationship presents us with.  Aptly called Soul Mates, the book is about finding the soul in all our connections.

Please purchase your copy of Soul Mates in our studio boutique.

MoonBeam Circle: For Mothers and their daughters (ages 9-12)

Mindful Mothers of the World, Unite!

Our daughters are moving from external authority–in which we’ve told them what to do and how to behave–toward internal authority and independence. As mothers, we want our daughter’s inner voice to be clear, so she can hear it above the din of peers and media messages. 

MoonBeams is a way to honor our daughters, so that as they age, they will surround themselves with people who honor them.  MoonBeams mother-daughter circles are a monthly opportunity to help girls stay connected with their moms, and learn to hear the voice of their heart.  

It is 90 minutes, once a month, of extraordinary time together in a playful, yet reverent atmosphere where we can all unplug and girls can simply be themselves. Activities are seasonal, all intentionally put together with a view to truly see one another.

Join us for an intro session! If there is enough interest we can meet each month  to reconnect and re-mind each other.

If you are interested in receiving information about this class when it becomes available, please email us at info@fullbloomedlotus.com

When: Date TBD

Time:  TBD

Workshop Fee: Mother and daughter $40
