Developing a Daily Practice with Mary Bue

Saturday, July 27th | 3-5 pm | $35

A favorite teacher often would say during her teachings to tune into the “body of the day.”  Depending on all the days before,  the person we wake up to face is often times different from one morning to the next.  Perhaps our muscles are recovering from a rockin’ asana practice from the day before or experiencing / healing from injury.  Perhaps we stayed up too late,  or ate too much birthday cake,  or are feeling the blows of a break up,  job transition,  loss of some sort.  Or maybe we wake up feeling energized,  vibrant,  ready to go.  With so much change from day to day,  how can we cultivate a daily yoga practice to tend to our needs in the moment?

 

Yoga Sutra 1:14 says,  “Perfection in practice comes when one continues to practice with sincerity and respect for a long period of time without any interruption.”  While striving for perfection isn’t entirely what yoga sage Patanjali means here,  one could take this teaching to mean that we can perfect our practice routines … and by practicing with these three key things in mind,  our growth evolution on this earth moves towards our ideal self and higher selves.  Can we choose and allow time for daily practice,  over a long period of our time,  without interruption?  This is ultimate self care.

 

In this workshop we will explore different ways to tune into our “body of the day’s” needs using asana (postures),  pranayam (conscious breathwork),  meditation, mantra,  self reflection via journaling, and ritual.  These tools can help craft a sustainable practice as well as bring inspiration to a daily practice that might need a little tweaking.  Leave with an action plan for your daily routine and deep support to continue your journey.

Womxn’s Moon Medicine: Moon in Aries, Element of Fire

Saturday, September 14th | 7-9 pm | $40

As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries represents the raw, primal fire of life force energy – Eros.

 

The heat of our desire, the wanting within us – to feel all aspects of our life experience deeply, to unabashedly assert ourselves, to be irrepressibly and victoriously ALIVE. To live empowered in the center of our desire is to live an erotic life, a life of passionate engagement and fervor.

 

Feminist, Audre Lorde, writes in her essay, Uses of the Erotic: The Erotic as Power:
“We have been raised to fear the yes within ourselves, our deepest cravings. For the demands of our released expectations lead us inevitably into actions which will help bring our lives into accordance with our needs, our knowledge, our desires. And the fear of our deepest cravings keeps them suspect, keeps us docile and loyal and obedient, and leads us to settle for or accept many facets of our oppression as women… But when we begin to live from within outward, in touch with the power of the erotic within ourselves, and allowing that power to inform and illuminate our actions upon the world around us, then we begin to be responsible to ourselves in the deepest sense. For as we begin to recognize our deepest feelings, we begin to give up, of necessity, being satisfied with suffering and self-negation, and with the numbness which so often seems like their only alternative in our society.” 
The warrior goddess path of Aries demands we come to understand the erotic as our birthright – primal, instinctual, powerful and foundational to a sense of aliveness. By confronting our fears and burning through the patriarchal distortions which relegate the erotic natures of all humanity; we embody high, fierce Aries energy and feel the heat of courageous strength surging through our bones. 
We will explore this Aries Moon energy through freestyle dance and the sounding of our voices to further awaken and experience our own instinctual, erotic, full-feeling/expressing natures. Please wear comfortable clothing in which you can move easily. After the embodiment, we will circle for a time of ritual and sharing. Womxn’s Moon Medicine is guided by Evolutionary Astrologer, Jessa Walters.
