Crossing the Threshold into 2020
This workshop is a New Years exploration of Tara, Goddess of Compassion, with Jeanie Manchester and Mike Cohen. Tara promises to incarnate as a woman until every last human is awakened. She calls us to awaken to our Fierce Compassion and help humanity wake up, heal and regain vibrancy. Through asana, chant, myth and inquiry we will explore how to remove any obstacles to creating Fierce Compassion in the new year! This fun and inspirational program will deepen your personal practice and unfold your relationship with Tara in a way that is relevant and applicable to your life.
