In Life Seals you create a symbolic life map that surfaces hidden patterns and clarifies direction. Through drawing and reflection, you gain access to a deeper understanding of yourself. Discover how different aspects such as mind and senses relate to each other, understand how you create obstacles, and reveal your untapped potential. The process of opening personal symbolism is rich, memorable and often deeply moving. The tangible, visual quality of Life Seals provides a reminder that you can refer back to for guidance.

Straight Walk: Gathering Facts, Finding Freedom @ Yasodhara Ashram

Aug 7 – 10

Where are you now and where do you want to be? This workshop encourages you to gather facts by observing both your emotional responses and rational thinking. Unpacking this spectrum of responses can help you make better decisions. Based on an ancient Buddhist practice of self-awareness, the Straight Walk involves several walking meditations done with observation and concentration. You take steps, literally and symbolically, to understand your perception and to gain a new perspective.

Experience the Transformative Power of Sacred Dance

Aug 21 – 27

In the eastern teachings the body is seen as a spiritual tool, a temple to the Most High. It is a way to be in touch with devotional feelings of the heart and to express these through a beautiful ancient language of movement.

Anusha Fernando, the artistic director of Shakti Dance in Vancouver, will be returning to the Ashram, along with members of her company, to be part of this special weekend devoted to sacred dance.
