In this two-hour special event, we welcome Anand Mehrotra from Rishikesh, India for this movie screening event of The Highest Pass (synopsis below). Following the movie, Anand will engage in a wisdom circle with all attendees.
If we deeply knew that we were always loved and cared for, that grace was always available to bring us through, would we react to our fears so strongly? It is too much to ask not to be afraid, never afraid at all. Instead we must have more love in our hearts than fear. Transcending fear is not a practice of the mind but a sinking into the fierce, unconditional love of the awakened heart. Though the mind thinks us crazy, we continue to dive deep. In this workshop we’ll explore how the many layers of our yoga practice, rooted in the long tradition of yogic wisdom, allow us to open our hearts to crazy grace and transcend the fears of our minds.
