HIP Winter Benefit: International Food Buffet

Special Guest Speaker: Shelly Craigo
December 8th
6:30 – 9 am
$25 (limited space- please reserve your seat soon!)

Please join us for this special evening of food, fun and community.

“Being a part of a group practice gives us the opportunity to taste the joy of unity; the joy of being an integral part of something bigger, better, brighter, and more enlightened and powerful than ourselves. It is this experience that eventually instills our minds and hearts with vision and courage to bring an extraordinary change both in the world inside us and outside us…”
—Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Ph D

About the event:
Become a force of change!  Humanity has endured cycles of prosperity and impoverishment, peace and darkness, ingenuity and stagnation, spirituality and science, for centuries. Where we are today in this process of growth and decline may be seen as we observe—both externally and internally—the qualities of fear, anger, sorrow, and greed, and their and internally—the qualities of fear, anger, sorrow, and greed, and their proportionate interplay with those of love, compassion, and joy.

Now is the perfect time for aspiring souls who believe in the power of collective consciousness—one that is positive, vibrant, and focused, and fills our consciousness with inner abundance and fulfillment—to take personal yoga practice to the next level.

Shelly brings a message and a practice from Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, Spiritual head of the Himalayan Institute.

The Simple Path To Peace

Yogic, Ayurvedic, and Other Practices for a Life Well Lived
with Chris Molinari

May 4th – May 6th

Tuition: $150

Plus accommodations. Please use BOOKING CODE = TSPTP0518 and reserve your accommodations here: https://www.himalayaninstitute.org/retreat-center/accommodations/

Living a simple and peace-filled life is what many people long for, yet often find difficult to attain amidst the noise and chaos of modern society.  In this workshop, Chris Molinari will present a variety of practical and effective daily strategies, techniques and lifestyle practices to help you create and sustain a more simplified life filled with greater peace and joy.

Cultivating a life of inner calm, increased awareness and a clear sense of wellbeing is not difficult, but it does require consistent practice and attention. The simple practices and lifestyle changes offered in this retreat are influenced by the Yogic and Ayurvedic traditions, as well as modern research into the effects of listening to healing music, positive thinking, and healthy processing of negative emotions. Some of the topics that will be covered include systematic relaxation, the Ayurvedic daily clock, home Yoga practice, and characteristics/benefits of healing music. The retreat will also feature a practicum offered by Himalayan Institute senior faculty for students to experience instruction firsthand from a teacher that is well-practiced in the Himalayan tradition.

At the end of the weekend, students will be peaceful and relaxed and leave well-equipped with a “tool kit” of home practices that are designed to support and maintain a more simple and peaceful life.  The “tools” are practical and easy to apply, even for those with busy and challenging schedules. Outside of workshop times, students will have an opportunity to explore the beautiful 400-acre campus, meditate in the Sri Vidya Shrine and enjoy the company of other spiritual seekers.
