Re-Membering Joy: A Turning Point Experience (with Sandra Eagle)

Many of us are aware that we are in a paradigm shift and that an
element of that shift is to access altered states of consciousness that
allow for a more direct connection to Source, the Oneness, Universal
Intelligence, or whatever name you prefer. But many of us have not
experienced such a state, or have only through the use of psychedelics.
Sandra Eagle, LCSW will guide us through arriving at a heightened
state. Re-membering Joy is not a talk, it is an experience of Surrender
using intention and breath, and results in an altered state of
consciousness. We’ll experience ‘letting go’ of our ‘concept’ of what
is going on in order to let was is truly so inside surface. Fragmented
parts of ourselves integrate and we ‘re-member’ our wholeness. The
promise is to live your life from your full vitality and awakening to
the adventure of your own unfolding. Those of you who have experienced
it know the awe of it. Those of you who have yet to, welcome, the time
is here. Expect Breakthrough.

Over the past few years Reza has been dropping beats and rhythms at a
myriad assembly of underground new york city venues ranging from
infamous east village pizza parlors to large brooklyn warehouses. He
thinks that there is no better time to party than at the afterparty. For
our party he has been preparing an eclectic set of bouncy house,
mindbending techno and bassalicious dubstep.  SuKhush:  SuKhush features
Rachel laying down live grooves & improvisation on the C Flute
over husband Vish’s DJ sets of funky world electronica. SuKhush
developed its pineal-tingling blend of the organic & technological
while Vish and Rachel owned and operated their own nightclub in Bombay,
India, during the early 2000s. Joining the New York scene in 2005,
Vish and Rachel launched 6362MetaForce – an artistic collective and
on-line boutique promoting the fashion, music, parties and community of
the global bohemian lifestyle. $mall ¢hange – super awesome
everything, $mall ¢hange is a household name in the underground
Brooklyn loft scene and alternative radio for well over a decade.
Rumored to have more vinyl then god. Will destroy your dance floor,
make you a mean margarita and run your table at 9 ball.  Blanco – deep
house / dubstep / breaks / chillout, Blanco aka Michael White has been
making music since childhood focusing on piano, guitar and percussion.
Classically trained in composition and music theory, Blanco nerds out
on chord progressions, counter point, and very very syncopated rhythms.
Blanco began producing chillout tracks and remixes in 2008 and has
been DJing since 2009.  Lenkadu – visuals (pex) 
Lenkadu aka Lenka Cludova is a multi faceted artist creating live
visuals, film, music, and live performance pieces. Lenka has most
recently been involved with VJ work for the Philadelphia Experiment
(Decom, Summerfest) and several art festivals on the west coast.

An Evening with HuDost and Alex & Allyson Grey

“Wounding and the Creative Process” w/ Alex Grey and Live concert
with HuDost and friends.  Human vulnerability to pain and death have
been rich sources of inspiration for artists throughout the centuries.
The number of songs about broken hearts potential outnumber those on
any other topic. Artist, Frida Khalo suffered a crippling back injury
that appeared in and contributed to her soulful self-portrature.
Beethoven’s deafness was the birthplace for some of the world’s
greatest music. The velvet voice of Moksha of the musical ensemble,
HuDost, was quieted temporarily by a recent brain tumor from which she
has successfully healed. The Grey’s are rapidly recovering from bone
breaks of vertebrae and ankle due to a recent auto accident, but their
commitment to a creative life has been empowered. Join us for a
discussion of how the hardships of life can be spun into golden
creative thread.

for its decadent and cosmopolitan qualities. Which are you coming for
at Dances of Vice?  The Shanghai Foxtrot Band will return on April 11th

How Ganesh Got His Head

“Bhakti Yoga is the most essential component of Jivamukti Yoga….We
felt from the beginning that without desire for God, asana is
meaningless exercise.  Without devotion, yoga cannot be attained.” 
Sharon Gannon and David Life, The Jivamukti Yoga Book.  Bhakti (or
devotion) in asana goes beyond an offering at the beginning of class. 
In an asana sequence set against a back drop of chanting music and
storytelling, we will explore  the relationship between asana and
devotion, and modes for the cultivation of bhakti in our asana asana

Dream Yoga – A Workshop with Matthew Canale

The average human being spends 23 years of their life sleeping.
Considering this fact, wouldn’t you like to take advantage of this
rather large chunk of time? Through the practice of lucid dreaming you
can do just that.  Lucid dreaming is simply recognizing that you are
dreaming while being in a dream. There are many things that we can
learn from our dreams but there are certain things that we can only
experience through being lucid.   What if you knew that your nightmares
couldn’t hurt you? What if you realized you could create your own
dream reality? What if you could fly among the stars of other galaxies?
It’s all possible through this natural phenomenon which has been
studied by cultures from around the world for centuries.   The best
part is that with a little knowledge and practice, anyone can do it. 
In this workshop we will cover… • How to remember your dreams. •
Techniques for becoming lucid in your dreams. • How to use dreams as a
source of creative inspiration. • How to gain information from dreams. •
How to interact and learn from dream figures. • How to conduct your
own dream experiments. • A brief overview of Buddhist, Gnostic,
Shamanic, and Western dream philosophy.  You will also go home with a
packet of notes and exercises that will increase your awareness and
help you begin to develop or strengthen your dreaming practice.

musicians Sohrab Sadaat (saxophone) and Ravish Momin (percussion /

10:40pm in Lua, Goias, Brasilia, Brazil

The workshop is designed as an ongoing intensive retreat, where
participants are being summoned to participate committedly day and
night. The combination of ongoing explorative dance classes, with
traditional healing and initiations of Native America traditions and
African rituals will support the process of each individuals healing and

for activities such as planting and forestry maintenance of the
wilderness lodge for a true taste of sustainable green living.  The
Dance:  Kathi believes that Breath is the Reflex to Live. To live is to
walk through life, and this walk is a dance lead by a melody. Each
person has their own melody deeply connected to their mission in
life.Therefore your dance is your prayer.  The Improvisational Butoh
Nature Spirit dance will bring each participant in touch with their own
dance, to dance beyond ones limitations. Ancient genetic memories are
accessed as participants learn to dance in their power, body mind
spirit, and then to utilize this in their daily life. Participants come
into deeper understanding of their spirit guides, and their commitment
to creative movement in life. Participants will present a solo improv
dance, an initiation of sorts at the culmination of the workshop in a
sight specific nature location of their choice. All dance classes are
accompanied by live music.  ‘It is a dance that takes place on a
cellular level, moving through your own cells, through the chaos,
dancing on the thread of life and spirit.’  Kathi von Koerber – Kathi is

in the United States . In Brazil she has spent time with the Xawante and
the Fulnio people from northern Bahia , who’s’ chief Lilisaka and some
of his dancers will be attending ceremonies with us.  Kathi honors the
voice of the grandmother. She supports the prayer of woman and her
ancient voices through the tools and means of praying with the elements,
the earth and its food, the fire and its transformation, the water and
its purifying power, and the air through which we walk our dance of
life.  Healer of the Heart- Hernando Villa, Hernando is a Colombian

dedicated to sustainable environmental management, with the support of
indigenous viewpoints. During the retreat Hernando will be leading

afflicted, as well as the method for passing on positive energy and
blessings to assist individuals in moving forward. She has further had
the experience of assisting in the healing of seriously ill people.
