Innovative self-realization and energy work for Yoga Teachers and Students.
Creative flow is the result of comprehensive self knowledge. It turns classes into ceremonial spaces, and teachers into HEALERS.
This GUIDED MEDITATION is taken directly from the course. It is designed to strengthen your connection with your CREATIVE SOURCE, which you knew so well before you were conditioned to be what you’re “supposed” to be.
After the meditation, journal about the experience, and about any actions and insights that came as guidance to revive your creativity.
Then take action!
Any process of self-realization can seem like a lofty endeavor - whether you are a student, or have begun your training and work as a yoga teacher.
The truth is, self-realization has always been meant for everyone, not just for an elite of “enlightenment geeks.”
How are we not ALL on the journey of self-realization?
The Reviving Creativity teacher training and student retreat is meant to give broader access to the self-realization process because it speaks to the following post-industrial human condition:
The drained “creative spirit” via the process of “education” and “social conditioning” administered by authorities who had their own creative spirit drained.
It’s time to end the cycle.
If your creative spirit has been drained, you may tend to...
- choose to occupy your free time in meaningless ways just to keep from feeling bored
- find problems with everything
- become defensive insisting you chose the life you live
- fill your time with things you should do instead of things you care about
- hang out with people who hold you back or bring you down
- find it difficult to say “no”
- be estranged from your sexuality - compulsive/addictive sexual behavior; rejection/avoidance of sexuality
- have difficulty formulating the answer when asked why you’ve chosen the life you have
- cannot be happy for others’ achievements
- argue habitually or try to prove yourself
Yes, it is true that the vast majority of adults can say that at least one item on this list firmly applies to them.
But don’t you see? That’s the point.
This is why self-realization is for everyone. We have all lived the story of having our creative spirit educated out of us.
But there’s hope! It had been deadened, but not killed!
It can be Revived!
There are thousands upon thousands of trained and active yoga teachers on the planet, and thousands more being certified each year.
Imagine if that vast majority of teachers who are currently - as per their training - teaching asana, could start to gain the experiential knowledge and wisdom that would allow them to provide new offerings where they share “the rest of yoga,” providing guidance that not only inspires their students into a proactive self-realization lifestyle, but that is done with language they can more easily understand and techniques they apply in their daily practice.
Reviving Creativity gives YOGA TEACHERS tools/experiences for teaching beyond the physical, such as:
- energetic space clearing theory
- chakra balancing
- creating a ceremonial space
- leading guided meditation from your heart
- consciously connect to higher guidance
- ancestral healing practices
- how to lead sharing circles
As trainees experience these practices and the transformation they provide, they can build the confidence necessary for sharing them with their students.
Four Days: This is a super expansion on the full day experience. Four full days of diving deep with creative play, meditation, self study, connective group work, yoga, chanting, and more carefully assembled in a sequence that is designed to reset and upgrade participants to a renewed version of themselves, while giving them tools they can use to continue their path to personal mastery for the rest of their days in this body. In essence, they will learn how to get back in touch with their natural creative flow, then to consciously anchor it into their present lives.
Seven Days: Exactly like the Four Day Retreat, except that we include off days that are for integration of the previous day’s experiences. These off days can also include training for deep tension release from the body using a method called TRE.
Half Day Workshop (4 hours instruction): This is a sampler. Here you will get in touch with the feeling of creative flow and have a chance to address some inner unconscious blockages that may affect that flow. Participants will also learn a simple meditation technique that will put them in rapid contact with their creative essence, allowing them to cultivate it further from there.
Full Day Workshop (6 hours instruction): In addition to what is covered in the half day, deeper creative blockages are worked on and an action plan is developed.
