Honor & Discernment: Virgo New Moon Astrology + Yoga Nidra - ONLINE
Date & Time
This summer's astrological energies supported us in learning a lot about what is and isn't working in our lives. At times it was messy, dramatic, elating, and illuminating. There were a lot of ups and downs and testing of limits. The extremes may have been more or less extreme, depending on the lessons and opportunities rising to the surface - a pot of soup stirred up from the bottom, a hurricane raged on smooth seas and dry land.
Our Souls want us to grow our experience of Self. We come into this world knowing we are expansive, limitless beings. We then are conditioned to forget our true nature, and take shapes that conform to outside conditions and ideas about who we are and how we are to live our lives.
But the world outside is changing - a lot. We are changing, and being asked to own our uniqueness, our authenticity. We can no longer play it safe and stay the same - change is the only constant, and we are called in this 2018 year of Mastery to become a higher version of our selves so we may be of greater service to our communities and the collective.
Under Virgo we are to Honor the gore in the glorious mess of this time of Soul growth; it is a process of distillation, purification back to essence. And we are to be Gentle with our soft, tender new skin from shedding so many layers. Virgo is also here to help us in-corp-orate the change as she rules digestion in the Body, our Yin & Feminine energy. She provides us a home within ourselves to lead our lives with both Intuition and Logic, in service to our highest expression of Self and for the betterment of others.
We are invited to embrace wise Discernment - Viveka ("right understanding," in Pali & Sanskrit) - as we plant seeds under this New Moon in Virgo for how we shall carry our plans for 2018 into the final quarter stretch of the year.
This is an online class that shares astrological information to support your growth and conscious awareness, and to set intentions during this powerful New Moon in Virgo. A channeled, chakra-aligned Yoga Nidra practice is offered to deeply relax & restore the body, and clear & transform belief patterns stored in our subconscious and unconscious mind.
A recording of the Yoga Nidra practice will be provided to attendees, along with journaling prompts to deepen your New Moon intentions.
Offered with love and honor for wherever you are in your journey.

WHAT IS YOGA NIDRA?
Yoga Nidra is a voice-guided meditation performed lying down in bed or on a yoga mat. It includes includes a body focusing exercise that creates a circuit of energy in the motor cortext to relax the brain, some breath and sound awareness practices, and some visualization activities.
It is derived from an ancient Tantra yoga practice and is a simple and efficient way to deeply relax while remaining conscious to reduce anxiety, stress, and insomnia. During the practice, we sink into the parasympathetic nervous system and enter the hypnogogic state, the state between being awake and being asleep.
Just a 15-20min practice provides the benefits of 4 hours of sleep.
SOME OTHER BENEFITS OF YOGA NIDRA:
Improve focus, clarity, creativity, and productivity
Deeply relax to reduce physical, psychological, and emotional tension
"Weed the garden" by release stored memories and past grievances from your subconscious and unconscious mind
Recover from injury, surgery, jet lag, or too many late nights
