The Joyful Woman: The Path of Always Becoming

Taught by Wah, Sukhdev & Azita
Wednesday, April 10, 2019

It’s fair to say as women we are all constantly becoming. That sense of impermanence and fluidity (be it an emotion or a cycle or stage) are the wellsprings of the Feminine. As women we are always unfolding and evolving, uncovering and recovering. We are always ’doing the work’ to create, birth, feed or heal something.

How do we still do the work to heal and grow AND still celebrate, embrace and share who we are right now. ENJOY who we are right now.

What if we chose to BE IN JOY RIGHT NOW??

Joy is what exists at the core of every moment. But, unfortunately that joy is usually hidden beneath layers and layers of should’s and supposed-to’s, daily to-do lists and exhausted attempts at keeping up with a day we’ve allowed others to steal way. Enough.

Now, this isn’t about vacating your life for a spa getaway (although that would be nice) – this is about accessing the joy during the becoming.. during the mess, during the transition, during the during…

This is about self acceptance. Self compassion. And self expression even when it’s messy. Especially when it’s messy. It’s saying, “Don’t mind the mess. This is Me. Unapologetically Me. And I’m choosing to celebrate it.” It’s owning who we are right now.

Your joy is a vibration. And that vibration is a magnet- a miracle magnet. For more joy. And prosperity.

Where are you needing more joy in your life?

Join Sukhdev, Azita and Wah for a workshop dedicated to the joy of being a women. Using the tools of Kundalini Yoga and meditation, take journey with three women who have used this ancient science to still live in joy while moving through the mess of becoming.. Because we’re always still becoming…

Every woman has her story. We will cultivate the space to express our truths, our stories, because it is through our sharing and expression that we set them free.

Wah, Sukhdev & Azita

SCHEDULE

Wednesday, April 10

2:00-3:30pm: Part 1: Come Undone in order to Become

As women it is our nature to birth and create; to serve and feed, and to give and do. And do some more. When was the last time you gave that Shakti-fueled heart of yours the time and space to just BE. There is a wellspring of joy at the core of our being, but we’re often too busy ‘becoming’ to notice.  Join us as we use the science of kriya, mantra, meditation and pranayama coupled with the healing balm of dance and ceremony to embrace that joyful state of being as we continue to become and unbecome.

4:00-5:30pm: Part 2: The Joy of Being in Process, Now THAT’S Progress

Our joy awaits us on the other-side of self care- two words that fall at the bottom of our to-do lists. What does self-care look like to you? and more importantly, what does it feel like? It begins with self acceptance and compassion- and owning who we are wherever and however we are – still un-done and un-finished. Still in Divine process- because that process is our progress. And uncovering the joy underneath it all is our freedom.

7:00-8:00pm: Part 3: Celebrate the Magic in the Mess 

Let’s celebrate our human-MESS. Even when it stings. Even when it hurts. There is room for both. Together we will remind each other of what we all too often forget- that we are Divine beings right now. We do not have to wait for anything to change we just have to remember the magic of our Divinity in each and every moment. As women our responsibility is TO each other and FOR each other- creating real authentic spaces to be, to breathe and to celebrate exactly who, what, when, where & why we are.
