The Energy That Awakens the Universe Within: The Kundalini Shakti Teachings

kundalini-shakti-immersion-1920x1080

Kundalini is the basis of all yoga: it is the primordial energy that lies dormant at the base of the spine until some moment, some practice, some teacher, some awakening calls you to shift your perception and understanding of your purpose here on earth.

Healing begins on a soul level and you must have tools to be wise through this unfoldment. Using asana, breath, meditation and a deep dharma talk, learn to choose freedom from the patterns that bind you and ignite your practice so you can intentionally grow into who you are meant to be.

Join master teacher Acharya Swami Jaya Devi to kindle kundalini, embrace transformative shakti and become the wild warrior yogi, soulfully present and awake.

Resolving Internal Aggression: The Urban Yogi’s Kindness Teachings

urban-yogi-immersion-1920x1080

The first tenet of yoga – like the Socratic oath – is to do no harm. But how do you lean into that teaching when there is injustice, heartbreak and suffering all around you? Silence can often be more harmful than almost anything you can do. But lashing out – or lashing in – creates harm of a different ilk. How do you navigate conflict and tension with both kindness and unflinching truth?

Join master teacher Acharya Swami Jaya Devi to kindle kundalini, embrace transformative shakti and become the wild warrior yogi, soulfully present and awake.

The Offering of the Heart: Bhakti Teachings of Love and Devotion

Acharya Swami Jaya Devi

In the bhakti tradition, love is paramount to the spiritual seeker’s expression of self in the world. A bhakti yogi loves to love, and longs to illustrate that love through acts of generosity, kindness, connection and deep awareness. To offer your heart is to open yourself wide in a courageous stance of devotion, not only to your lineage or tradition, but also to the world at large. To learn how to live from the deepest realm of the inner heart, you embrace vulnerability as strength, devotion as fortitude, and love as the deepest current of your own soul.

Join us for an immersion where you will explore bhakti yoga, honor guru Ma Jaya’s birthday and celebrate the mystical, ancient sanyass initiation ceremony, where Atlanta’s Jaya Das and Agni Ma will take monks vows.

When Resonance Echoes Through You: The Urban Yogi’s Teachings on Truth

Acharya Swami Jaya Devi

We are in a time when people debate what is true. Truth has thus become a complex construct, but its authentic reality is simple. When you learn, hear or understand truth, there is a resonance, a reverberation, and if you learn to listen deeply, you can actually feel it. This is “Om Tat Sat” the truth that is already in you, the full presence behind all illusion.

Join master teacher Acharya Swami Jaya Devi to peel back some layers and uncover the truth of who you really are, so you can stand more simply in the ease and integrity of just being true and being you.

Polishing the Sacredness Within: The Urban Yogi’s Teachings of Pure Radiance

Acharya Swami Jaya Devi

As much as we hate to admit it, all of us come with shadow qualities to our thoughts, inner beliefs, behaviors and personalities. The shatkarmas or deep purification practices of yoga cleanse us so that the arduous process of transformation becomes easier. These radiance practices heal us on a cellular level by releasing karmic patterns that just make us feel stuck. We learn to seek, welcome, initiate and befriend change, rather than resisting it.

Unstick yourself with master teacher Acharya Swami Jaya Devi as we explore the modern yogic diet, Ayurvedic essentials, and dinacharya practices to pursue your own evolution and resiliency.

The Embodied Equanimity Teachings: Peace Is My Birthright, Ritual Is My Song

Durga-Puja-1200

The images of the Vedic gods and goddesses depict wild warrior beings lighting up the universe, riding tigers, shooting thunderbolts of awareness, and dancing dissolution and creation into being. As yogis, we open, accept and embody all of this wildness, riding the wave of the breath, remaining in ever-present awareness through it all.

This, we are told is equanimity, the state of well-being that teaches us to willingly consume all of life and all of death. While honoring the dance of the universe through ancient fire ceremony, embodied offering, ritual, chant and song, we’ll heal our hearts together in sacred beloved community.

Join master teacher Acharya Swami Jaya Devi as we employ the universal elements to both create and experience Durga Puja, a timeless honoring of the sacred feminine in all her interfaith wildness and all her diverse forms.

December 3 – 5, 2021

You cannot fully be free without surrendering to the vast expanse of the universe. The cosmos turns as the yogi dances in tune with the rhythm of time. Yoga can teach you move in this sacred duet, in harmony with the forces of karma, reality and trust. Understood as union, yoga indicates a link, an unbreakable connection to the sacred realities. This opens you to experience life as it is from life where you are, trusting your dance to unfold. The deeper dimensions of yoga light the path where radiant truth and soft surrender initiate you into the moments of bliss.

Join master teacher Acharya Swami Jaya Devi as we explore the relationship between trust, bliss and surrender, expanding our capacity for meditation and bliss.
