Namaste Beautiful Souls!

NamasteNamaste Radiant Souls !

AUM … My hearts greetings and recognition to you all. All I can say is WOW ! - Today is 12-12-12, What an amazing time on Earth to witness and to participate in. I awoke a 5:30am this morning with my inner consciousness firing at light speed and feeling so excited for this time on our planet. I am breathing through the places that I am still holding fear and welcoming in more light, love and beauty into each moment. All we really have is our direct experience and that experience consistently brings me into relation with so many brave, sacred, loving beings, I am in awe and gratitude. And today, my experience is that I am feeling a huge activation of energy, a deepening of my prayers and intensity and a flooding of light into my consciousness. My family and I are spending as many moments is sacred time as we can and sending you all LOVE. As my teacher Miguel Angel beautifully says "2012 is about opening your heart, it is about Love".

We just returned from an amazing journey in Mexico, at the invitation of my dear soul-sister Sianna Sherman. I taught with her at the Mexico Yoga Conference in Mexico City, in Cuernavaca at Atmaram and a beautiful retreat in Tulum with many special guests and celebrating the birthdays of 2 of my incredible children Taj and Lila. My heart is so full as we head into this winter solstice. Love and devotion to all the beautiful Mexican Yogi's I met who have such open hearts and all the incredible Spirit's who joined Sianna, Theo, Harmony and I on the retreat. We hope to do it again next year. Gracias Sianna, Gracias a todos.

I am very excited to be sharing this new newsletter with you all. I want to thank my friends at Namaste Interactive, they are an incredible team and have been a joy to work with. Gratitude also to Justin and the team at Smoke Brush who have been re-working on our website, that we are re-launching this month. Deep gratitude and love to Bianca Mora for her hard work and patience in getting all this done and working with me this year. Also my dear sisters JoElla Sheperd & Gigi Chiarello who worked closely with me this year and whose help is more than I can put into words.

Coming up, I will be offering a tele-sangha on Thursday 12/20/12 (the solstice is at 3:12 am PST) & workshops at Exhale Venice & in Ojai at Sacred Space on 12/22 & 12/23 respectively. We also have two retreats coming up; our 2nd annual Soul Dharma New Years retreat is filling up (there are about 8 spaces left - fyi a wonderful Christmas present :), a potent way to ring in the New Year in sacred space with yoga, meditation, music and sangha and wonderful food from our friend Caspar. Also, in January I will be joining my dear Bhakti brother Sridhar, founder of Bhaktifest and Shyam Das for a magical mystery tour of sacred India. If you have ever wanted to go to India, don't miss this one. We will visit birthplace of yoga and kirtan, there is not place like India - I hope you will join us. We have an incredible action packed journey planned, there is nothing like a journey to India, visiting saints, swami's, seared temples and doing lots of yoga, kirtan, meditation ...

We will be announcing our 2013 calendar soon and for those of you who are interested in deepening your studies with me. I am very excited to announce our 300/500 hour continuing studies program beginning next year, with special Bhakti, Tantra & Shamanic Immersions. If you are interested in the program please contact teachertraining@ritamhealingarts.com to become on our inquires list.

In closing, I wanted to share a few words in my heart, many people have been asking me what should they be doing now ? What is the most important practice …

… It is my deep feeling that the greatest thing we can all do is to live authentically from our hearts in connection with life. Everything is revealed from there - It is one thing to say it and another to do it. Follow your sacred path as best as you can. Don't judge the others, we are meant to work on ourselves, to heal and transform ourselves. If we do that the world will change. This is not the end of the world, that is peoples fear, the teachings, the prophecies are about a shift in consciousness, in the word as we know it. A return to balance, how painful that is depends on us. What will it take to wake us up ? We are here to not only to witness this incredible moment, but to participate in it. You/I/We are the shift; from fear to love to balance with the Mother, with all of our brothers and sisters and that begins within. Trust, everything will reveal itself in the right time, the most important thing is to open our hearts and awaken the divine love within that is our essence. I am deeply grateful to all of my teachers, friends and guides along this sacred path.

In peace and divine friendship during this sacred time,

Teacher Training

picAtma Yoga 200 hr Soul Immersion & Holistic Teacher Training Program
with Saul David Raye & Guest Teachers
Module 2: Transformation ~ Sacred Anatomy/Fire
February 13-22, 2013 in Ojai, CA

Atma in Sanskrit means the inner Self or Soul. It is the essence of who we truly are and the source of our energy, light and power. Yoga means union, it is the natural state and condition of our being; body, mind, and Spirit are One. Atma Yoga is a style of yoga developed by Saul David Raye with the blessings of his teachers. It is a holistic and heart centered approach to Yoga and spiritual awakening that recognizes each of us as sacred channels of living, breathing Cosmic Energy. Atma Yoga draws on the teachings of Yoga, Bhakti, Tantra, Ayurveda and all forms of universal light, love and wisdom. It is an evolutionary approach to practice that honors each being's unique Self, creativity and Spirit. A practice not based on performance, competition or achieving, but on accepting, experiencing and connecting with the Universal Spirit, which flows through all things. An Atma Yoga session takes an intuitive and exploratory approach to our being, weaving together heart wisdom teachings, dynamic asana, breathwork, meditation, chanting, music, intuitive movement and a variety of other techniques to experience the infinite Source within.

This module of the training will take the student deeper into Yoga as a practice of alchemy and transformation and the study of sacred anatomy through an exploration into the physical, energetic, emotional and spiritual being. More advanced practices will be taught and the student will gain a deeper understanding and knowledge of Yoga on all levels.

In this module, there is an emphasis on meditation, pranayama and Ayurveda, as well as practical tools to support living an awakened and inspired life and supporting others in this process; becoming a keeper of the Sacred Fire.
Cost: $1221 - early bird before January 10, 2013
Cost: $2121 (includes lodging and food) - early bird before January 10, 2013
Cost: $1621 (includes food only) early bird before January 10, 2013
