Fundraiser: A Goddess Intensive

with Yogi Raj Prem Prakash

Friday, March 2 - Sunday March 4

Friday, March 2, 7:00 pm: Discussion, Location: IHT

In the tantric tradition, the Goddess reigns supreme. This is a paradigm in which the divine feminine is respected as the foundation of love, ecstasy, and freedom. This divinity abides equally in men and women, as well as all other forms of life. We will explore traditional teachings as well as contemporary ramifications of authentic tantra.

Saturday, March 3, 1:00-4:00 pm Fire Yajna , Location: Streifel Home, 1783 Eleanor Ave, St Paul 55116

A yogic fire ceremony is a practice of invocation and evocation. We invoke the presence of beings of higher consciousness, and we evoke that same higher consciousness that resides within us in potential. It is a means of clarifying intention and purifying karma. The ceremony is quite simple, effective, and very beautiful. Through mantra repetition, we generate enormous positive, healing energy, which radiates within us and throughout the surrounding environment.

Saturday, March 3, 7:00-8:00 pm Kirtan, Location: IHT

Kirtan is the yoga practice of using music as a means of transforming consciousness. It is a tribal experience of cultivating bhava samadhi, communion through emotions. It creates a doorway between worlds, invoking beings of higher consciousness and evoking our own divinity. In kirtan there is a circle of connection with no authoritarian leader. Without performer or audience, we are free to join in samadhi and realize our shared divine identity. Bring your musical instruments.

Sunday, March 4 10:00-11:30 am Pranayama & Asana class, Location: IHT

Hatha yoga is the yoga of physical postures, breath regulation, and mental focus. In America, most people think of hatha yoga as the practice of asanas, often translated as “postures.” The Sanskrit term, asana, though, literally means “seat.” In hatha yoga, we use the asanas as vehicles of meditation and learn how to sit comfortably, or abide harmoniously, in our bodies. Advancement in hatha yoga is not bending and twisting into extravagant positions, rather, it it learning how to have a healthy relationship with your own body. This class will focus on postures that will be accessible to healthy individuals of all levels of fitness.

Cost: Donations are gratefully accepted. Yogi Raj Prem Prakash has donated time once again to IHT. Thank you!
