Walking on Sunshine

Two Days of Yoga, Dharma and Song

with Alice Kennedy and Mercedes Bahleda

This weekend of workshops with Alice and Mercedes will explore the joy of music, yoga, and Dharma as a means to happiness and freedom. Two of the most basic and profound reasons to have a sadhana or practice, is so that we may be happy (ananda) and free (svatantrya), and be able to help others achieve the same. We will be looking at Tibetan Lojong scriptures on developing a good heart and how to care for others more deeply. The weekend will be unique in that you will have the incredible opportunity to expand your heart through music, wisdom teachings, and yoga…..all of which can open you up to the possibility of greater love and happiness in your life. By the end of the weekend, you will be walking on sunshine!
