karmageddonKARMAGEDDON with Jeff Brown

Interview with filmmaker Jeff  Brown before the screening. Panel discussion to follow the screening with Iasos,  DuRae O’Shea Wilkinson and Yogi Shambu.

Karmageddon captures the spiritual journey of ‘Soulshaping’ author Jeff Brown with 1960’s counter-culture icon and guru Bhagavan Das, of ‘Be Here Now’ fame. Rivetingly personal and profoundly universal, Karmageddon is an unforgettable look at contemporary spirituality as east meets west, the 1960’s meets the 21st century, spirituality meets psychology, and the sacred meets the profane. From tree-hugging and sacred chants to womanizing and the search for an authentic life, Brown is forced to confront the shortcomings of his teacher as he takes the viewer from light to shadow and back again. His journey includes interviews with some of the best known spiritual teachers, chanters and yogis of our time, including ‘Be Here Now’ author Ram Dass, Seane Corn, Deva Premal & Miten, David Newman (Durga Das), Robert Gass, and David Life. Winner of the Audience Choice Award at the Costa Rica International Film Festival, Karmageddon is a profound and unforgettable examination of the desire for healing, meaning and heartfelt connection in all of our lives. It is a truly courageous, no-holds-barred film that challenges long established patriarchal guru practices and also challenges some of the ideas of spirituality intrinsic to the spiritual bypass movement, including the alleged split between our emotional and spiritual lives. It asks many questions relevant to spiritual seekers and yogis, without soft-touching the response: Can we grow in our spirituality without working through our emotional issues? Can we be enlightened if we are not fully in integrity in all respects? Can we just do the witness bypass and pretend that our issues are cured, or must we get inside our unresolved hearts and work them through in order to be truly liberated? Is detachment a life, or is it just a tool to keep us afloat during difficult times? Why do we summon certain figures into our lives? What does ‘spirituality’ really mean?

 

Kundalini cover

KUNDALINI ENERGY: Energy of science, sex & spirit with Goddess

Presentation including demo and audience Q & A

This presentation provides a solid understanding of Kundalini Energy (not Kundalini Yoga). It is communicated in a simple, accessible format for everyone to access. Explore the most powerful energy in the physical body; the  energy of evolution & consciousness.

 

 

 

CRYSTAL BOWL SOUND BATH with Megan Marie

Musical Concert

Enjoy our closing presentation with a cosmic crystal bowl concert.

Sound works to bring balance and deep relaxation to our whole system. With the harmonic vibrations created by crystal singing bowls and other resonant instruments, we shift our brainwaves into both alpha (creative + calm) and theta (deep meditation) states which can provide deep healing for our whole system. Sound Baths are improvised vibrational journeys that allow participants to lay back, relax and become immersed in sound. They are meditative experiences that can provide deep relaxation, stress release and are powerful experiences for our bodies, minds and hearts. These offerings include sounds of healing instruments (crystal singing bowls, chimes, drums, ukulele, rattles, voice, etc), singing/chanting, and visualization + intention work.
