Arise Festival - Yoga and Wisdom Village workshops


I am teaching at Arise Music Festival August 2017!

Events: 

The Visceral Experience of Relating with Erin & Booster and Desert Dwellers! (Yoga Tent) 

Friday 5-6 pm

In a world of increasing complexity, the ways that we connect with one another are constantly evolving. Never before has it been so convenient to communicate and yet we are lonelier and more conflicted than ever. Discovering ways to genuinely connect with one another is one of the most fundamental challenges of our time.

Erin and Booster will guide you into a kinesthetic flow-state that will allow you to access sovereignty within connection and the power to honor what you want while also acknowledging the desires of others.  It will involve guided meditation, basic asana,partnered activities and is available to most levels of physical ability.


Redefining Divine Feminism with Erin (Wisdom Village)

Sunday 11:30-12:30

In this interactive talk, Erin offers a revolutionary perspective challenging the familiar narratives of Divine Feminism.  This is a must-go for feminine thought leaders, activists, teachers, and spiritual thinkers (men are especially welcome).  Much of spirituality is finding purpose and reasons for even the most seemingly chaotic parts of our lives.  Erin describes how many current interpretations of Divine Feminism actual continue to perpetuate disempowerment and instead presents alternative viewpoints based on her experience in southern India where she has immersed in a rare feminine-encoded tradition that was derived from an ancient goddess-based civilization. This wisdom embraces all aspects of our human-ness (including suffering and chaos) as actual wellsprings of ecstatic aliveness that reframes life into an endeavor well-worth living. Here we turn burdens into blessings, not by merely reframing the issue with a positive slant, but by ripping off the band-aid of positivity in favor of a more rich experience, sublimating the mundane into the very ecstasy of being where real magic and clear purpose dwell within a path of true spiritual femininity. Beauty begins where perfection ends.


Practical Tools for Successful Relationships – a live Satsang with Booster and Erin (Wisdom Village)

Come, sit, listen and participate in a discussion regarding the challenges facing relationships in today’s society.  How do we balance our individual needs for freedom and expression with our desire for safety and security?  How do we communicate what we most deeply want without hurting our partner or damaging the relationship?  What can lovers do to reignite passion when routine begins to erode the magic that was once so present?  How do we know when we’re operating from codependent or love-avoidant patterns and what do we do if we suspect our partner is engaging that way?

Erin and Booster will share from their knowledge in non-violent communication, authentic relating, and their own experience with relationships to offer the clearest solutions and best practices they’ve garnered from years of living in a community as pioneers in revolutionary relating.
