Myth & Mantra: Stories and Songs of the Heart With Erick DuPree

Myths have been used for centuries to tell the stories of our heart. With mantra, also known as sacred song, the two help to identify who are we, where have we been, and where might we like to go.

Invite the abundance of Lakshmi or cross the threshold with Ganapati. Ever wonder why Kali is so fierce

or what her battle cry is? Join Erick for an afternoon of myths in the Tantric tradition and an introduction to mantra. Together we will explore these stories and the sounds of the heart. We will discover how cultivating intention and manifesting sacred sounds and chants can invite a playful and empowered discovery of the self. These are the stories of the sages and songs of the heart, that when harnessed can be used as tools to create new daily practices or complement existing ones. Participants will leave with a foundational knowledge of mantra through a contemporary western lens, as well as several new mantras to try at home, handouts, and more.

Note: This workshop has no asana, but there will be guided meditation, light pranayama, lots of reverie, and a head or two that rolls down the river! Beginners Welcome, Laughter Required.

Pricing: $35 Early Bird (ends 1/14); $40 Regular
