“The Time of The Lone Wolf is Over “

The dark ages: the ancient yogins called “The Kali Yuga” a time of misera, confusion and demise where things are horribly mixed up; politics are corrupt and we face environmental devastation like never before. Women are fighting for the voice of equality in body, mind and speech. She no longer is willing to leave her human form to hide in the safe confines of nature as is told over and over again in the yogic mythic lore. While the devastating reality of these dark ages cannot be denied, there is evidence that we are indeed at the precipice of the age of truth : The Sat Yuga. We see this in the Womens’ movement today as well as the “blessed unrest “ in communities rising up together to find creative solutions to the countless challenges we face in the modern world. Men, also are looking for guidance in how to recognize the feminine within themselves. Ultimately yoga is the marriage of both masculine and feminine energies within our subtle body. We are at a time in history where the healing of our planet depends on each and every human being’s committment to waking up. This means we need the proper tools to help awaken us to our highest potential: our most potent capacities. We must overcome our feelings of unworthiness, doubt and insecurity as well as pride and greed. Its time of RADICAL CONFRONTATION with the way we separate from each other. We go to battle with our ego’s and face the ways we have not been present in life. We must come together, collaborate and learn from one another in order to evolve and shift the old ways of patriarchy. To raise your vibration and peel away the layers of inhibiting beliefs, doubt, and shame is Yoga’s great promise. With proper guidance and practices every human being can learn to harness their potential; step into gifts, and talents and energy for life. The feminine is rising, there is no doubt about it and its time to integrate both masculine and feminine energies within our subtle bodies. This has always been the meaning of yoga: to yolk, to merge, to comingle and as a result heal, so we can stand up more firmly in our selves. To take your seat as a human worthy of your gifts and talents is what we are here to do. In that process of upleveing our creativity we heal our selves and as a result have the energy to create and transform and contribute to planetary healing. We are “over the moon” excited to say that this training is revolutionary as two lineages merge to create something new, something profound, something radical and real. We heal the divisive parts of ourselves when we open to seeing and experiencing in more than one way. This is why we are collaborating in a radical way to shift consciousness rapidly. The time is now
