SHIVA NATARAJ

The Divine Dance

Transformation without Fear

An Online 21-Day Supported Mantra Practice

Created and Offered by Rajeshwari Gretchen Carmel

Senior teacher in the lineage of Namadeva Acharya, Thomas Ashley-Farrand 

February 15-March 7, 2017

You are invited to join me in a very powerful and sacred 21-day supported mantra practice. The repetition of mantra, called japa, is an ancient meditative tool which can reduce karma and ease suffering, bringing us closer to our true potential.

Anyone can practice mantra. You do not need to have any previous experience with yoga or mantra or have any specific spiritual belief to fully receive the benefits.

HEALING.TRANSFORMATION.REBIRTH.

About This Practice:

Shiva Nataraj, the divine embrace, the lord of dance, encompasses all “creation, destruction and all things in between”. The Nataraj iconography incorporates contrasting elements, a fearless celebration of the joys of dance while being surrounded by fire, untouched by forces of ignorance and evil,signifying a spirituality that transcends all duality. 

He is seen as the image of rhythmic play which is the source of all movement within the universe,  the dance to help release illusion and the figure of transformation into rebirth.

 This Mantra Discipline is Designed to:

1) Release obstacles to issues, mental constructs, negative emotions and situations holding you back from your full potential.

2) Bring elements of ecstatic play, wonder and surrender while staying grounded, centered and fully aware.

3) Merge mind and body with the elements of nature.

4) Assist in inner and outer transformation without fear, trusting the timing and grace of the universe. 

Plus, you’ll be participating with others all around the globe, contributing to a world of peace and transformation.

We balance internal and external abundance.

Join me, as we dissolve barriers through sound, connection and awareness.

Whether we seek balance in the areas of physical or mental health, finances/career, relationships or spiritual advancement/illumination, mantra disciplines give us the opportunity to accelerate the journey of personal transformation.

LAKSHMI

Abundance, Wealth, Manifestation

with Mantras & Mudras

An Online 40-Day Supported Mantra Practice

Created and Offered by Rajeshwari Gretchen Carmel

(in the lineage of Namadeva Acharya, Thomas Ashley-Farrand)

April 5 – May 14, 2017

Namaste,

You are invited to join me in a very powerful and sacred 40-day supported mantra practice. The repetition of mantra, called japa, is an ancient meditative tool which can reduce karma and ease suffering, bringing us closer to our true potential.

A 40-day practice constitutes a complete discipline and is considered by many traditions the minimal amount of time to heal/shift/change and transform. Anyone can practice mantra. You do not need to have any previous experience with yoga or mantra or have any specific spiritual belief to fully receive the benefits.

ABOUT THIS PRACTICE: 

LAKSHMI, Abundance, Wealth, Manifestation 

What will the season of Spring bring for you? What seeds of life will you consciously plant? 

Lakshmi is the primordial and essential mother of all. Her energy is expansive, her gifts are limitless. 

“Abundance” can manifest in many ways. Compassion, purity of body/mind/speech, wealth of good crops, proper nutrition, courage and strength, great patience, inner stability, grace, healthy children, success in endeavors, material wealth, will power, knowledge, education and learning, and more….

She sits in a lotus flower (the symbol of purity), holds lotus flowers and offers her many gifts to us through purity of heart. Honoring the Great Mother Lakshmi, chanting the ancient vibrations of Sanskrit in a collective group, we will build the energy of abundance internally, bathe in the energy and expand/utilize the energy for manifestation of our desires. 

 

This practice is designed to:

1) Dissolve obstacles and mental constructs to the abundance you desire.

2) Notice, with gratitude, the abundance already present in your life.

3) Open the vortex to call in and receive new energy for increased wealth.

4) Embody a higher vibration, wealth in all forms.

We balance internal and external abundance.

Join me, as we dissolve barriers through sound, 

connection and awareness.

Whether we seek balance in the areas of physical or mental health, finances/career, relationships or spiritual advancement/illumination, mantra disciplines give us the opportunity to accelerate the journey of personal transformation.

HERE’S HOW THIS 40-DAY SUPPORTED MANTRA PRACTICE WORKS:

On April 4th, you will receive the mantra practice in its entirety online with recordings of the mantras and details on the practice. There are varying lengths to the practice which range anywhere from 3-20 minutes. You can choose which form is best for you. The mantras do not change. The mantras are then chanted daily, at your convenience, for 40-days from Wednesday, April 5th – Sunday, May 14th.

This practice includes several mantras and instructions for the discipline, mantra recordings, the benefit of the daily collective healing group energy, weekly newsletters, advise on added hand mudras, 40-day online support, plus OPTIONAL participation in a private Facebook forum page.
