The Way of the Heart

In this gathering, Malika Lyon will introduce the Sufi Way of the Heart - not a religion or a philosophy, but more a perspective, or a way of living one’s life. The aim is to awaken into a realization of who you really are, in order to truly live your life and to be of benefit to others. 

A beautiful aspect of this Way is that it recognizes one source of truth, from which all spiritual messengers have come to humanity. Thus, it can harmonize with and incorporate other traditions and practices that you may be drawn to, and in fact can lead to a deeper experience and greater benefit with those. 

This class is free to the public. Donations are accepted. Click here to register in advance.

Yoga for Sacred Unity with Yeshe
Nov

9:00 AM09:00

Yoga for Sacred Unity with Yeshe

Join YesheLa for Yoga for Sacred Unity.

YesheLa defines Sacred Unity as an experience or state of being, that is marked by an awareness of the interconnected nature of things, and includes an effortless observation of divinity. She believes that we can create an atmosphere that makes this experience of Sacred Unity more easily accessible, through breath and movement. The practice of basic yoga poses lends itself perfectly, to the harmonious creation of this atmosphere, within and around ourselves. In this class, we will explore and honor the interplay of Divine feminine and masculine energies reflected within ourselves. Imagine having your own experience of Sacred Unity, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Imagine how profound your experience will be as you are clearly guided, strongly supported, and lovingly encouraged. Your entire being is engaged in this practice. This experience is perfect for beginner to intermediate level students.

Partner Tai Chi with Steve

Partner Tai Chi with Steve

Tai chi literally "Supreme Ultimate Boxing" is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits. Though originally conceived as a martial art, it is also typically practiced for a variety of other personal reasons: competitive wrestling in the format of pushing hands (tui shou), demonstration competitions, and achieving greater longevity. As a result, a multitude of training forms exist, both traditional and modern, which correspond to those aims with differing emphasis. Some training forms of t'ai chi ch'uan are especially known for being practiced with relatively slow movements. Steve incorporates these techniques to assist partners in their relating with one another to form stronger bonds as well as developing trust and learning to move in harmony.

Sitting Meditation with Nezam Ardalan

Sitting Meditation with Nezam Ardalan

Beginning June 13th to July 9th, Merkaba will host Meditation Facilitator, Nezam Ardalan of Maui Hawai'i.  Join Nezam, 3 times per week, Tuesday's 10am, Thursday's and Sunday's at 7pm for Sitting Meditations. 

 Meditation begins to bridge the space between our internal experience and the world around us; ultimately laying the foundation for why and how we act. It offers us a doorway through which to experience our true nature, and as we begin to touch that understanding, our relationship to the world becomes more intimate, more holistic and more aware.  It is not just a place to cultivate peace and quiet of mind. Whether we are sad, happy or confused, it offers a valuable foundation to our daily interactions with our selves and our communities. 

We sit to know this space, cultivate peace within ourselves and in the world around us.

Singing Bowl Sound Meditation the Paul Rudy

We will listen and commune with Crystal and Metal singing bowls, and toning, to tune into the season and dance with the healing energies of sound vibration. 

It can be said that illness is a manifestation of dis-harmony within the body—an imbalance in the cells or a given organ. Since matter is energy vibrating at different rates, by altering the rate of vibration we can change the structure of matter. Sound from Singing Bowls guide the brain to move into the Theta brain wave frequencies that induce deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and intuition.  The sound vibrations impact our nervous system, engaging our relaxation reflex and inhibiting the stress or pain response.

Doors open at 7:00 pm Meditation begins promptly at 7:30
