Serenity! A word meaning so many things to so many people. Often, one pictures a mental state of pure peace. Nothing can rattle this once achieved. But what if instead of a one time event, serenity is the practice of acceptance and inwardly choosing to say yes to life's mysteries. Here, serenity becomes an active path always accessible and ever deepening with one's joys and challenges. Meditation sets the groundwork for this practice and grants us the freedom to follow it.

Day 1: 8pm Intention Setting Bonfire

Day 2: 11am Opening Yoga and Meditation;
1-4pm Mindful Living as a Meditation: 

This workshop will explore how yoga and meditation can be used as a powerful tool in recovery and how to apply it to our well being.

Presence: Yoga for the Here and Now

Presence: Yoga for the Here and Now

Yoga is about being present, living fully in the here and now.  Yoga connects us to ourselves and the world around us.  We celebrate this union through joining breath and movement.  It is simple yet profound at the same time, but joyously free to all who partake.  Let's celebrate and practice together at Spectrum under the Alaskan sky with the electronic vibes of harmony around us.  Get your pre-dance stretch on, then align your body, mind and spirit for the night ahead at the Portico on Saturday afternoon.
