To register, please call Maureen at 215-424-4444 or 215-431-8838.
The Chakra Dhyana is a very powerful Spiritual Practice to awaken Kundalini, connect you with higher conscious, and clear and activate the 7 chakras. Using the Chakra Dhyana, we briefly chant the Bija Mantras for each Chakra. At the conclusion of the Chakra Dhyana the Oneness Blessing will be given. The Oneness Blessing is an energy transfer that initiates a neuro-biological change in the brain that connects us with spirit. It results in a growth in consciousness by creating a shift in the perception and experience of life. It is non-denominational; and awakens our connection with the oneness in everything, allowing each of us to deepen our relationship with ourselves, those we love, and with all that is.

Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra with Michelle Stortz
Sunday, September 10th from 4:00 - 6:00pm
Investment - $20
Or - Bring a Friend - 2 for $30 ($15 each)!
Are you having sleepless nights?
Struggling with anxiety?
Suffering from a distracted, wandering mind?
Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra is a guided meditation that systematically leads you into a deep state of relaxation through breath awareness, body scanning and imagery. This state 'turns on' the relaxation response, which is the body's natural healing state. There is nothing for you to do, but to get comfortable and listen.
Yoga Nidra leads you through a visceral experience of various layers of your being – physical, mental, energetic, spiritual. We can heal what we can feel and yoga nidra brings awareness to every part of your being. Yoga Nidra is typically practiced while reclined in a comfortable position, though it can also be done sitting upright. The workshop will also include guided sitting meditation and gentle mindful movement.
