Creating your Birth Yantra with Chanti Tacoronte-Perez
The birth yantra is symbolic of the creative path; different from a maze the labyrinth has a specific goal. In this workshop we will use the labyrinth as a symbol of our womanhood—weaving in and out. When the yantra is complete it will serve as a tool to remember the journey towards the center as well as how it affects the path back out into the world. The practice of yantra construction and painting will be the vessel which can hold the “birth” of your honoring the cycles of womanhood.
Evening Kirtan with Yoli Maya Yeh
Wind down and tune in with Yoli Maya Yeh in devotional chants, prayer and reflection these evenings. Honoring the sacred with a fire offering and voice let us commune with Nature and ourselves while honoring the sacred in our lives.
Yoli will draw from Tantrik, yogic and Native American lineage practices in the evening offering.
