Peace Begins with Me: A Yoga and Activism Course
with Margie Pacher

When: Wednesdays, Nov 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th
Time: 3pm-5:30pm
Peace is an inside job and it begins with each one of us!

Yoga and activism go hand in hand. Why? As yogis we practice because we want to experience sustained wellbeing. Many of us have already experienced what science knows, that yoga boosts mood and overall wellbeing. When we extend ourselves to benefit others, an even greater affect emerges, we experience what psychologists call sustainable happiness. Sustainable happiness is the happiness that emerges from contributing to the wellbeing of other people, animals and the environment through our daily actions in the world. Furthermore, as we use our own passions, talents and skills to benefit others we develop more meaning in our lives.

Over five weeks we will practice yoga, boost our wellbeing, and explore some of the world’s most pressing issues with a group of like-minded yogis. This will be an open, conscious, and nonjudgmental circle to explore topics in a fun way, share ideas, and find more positive solutions for the issues that concern us most. Each session includes a 1-hour yoga class, yoga ethics, humane education activities, visualizations, and happiness homework.

Sessions may be taken alone or attend all sessions for discount.

Great for teens, parents, and yogis wishing to experience wellbeing from the inside out!

Week One:
1-hour Hatha Yoga Class
1.5-hour Peace Begins with Me: The Affect of Cultural Norms, Consumerism, and Advertising

About Crown of Eternity:

Through their extensive international tours with workshops, trainings, therapy sessions, concerts and retreats they have helped thousands of people connect to their life energy, to deeper relaxation and to self healing. They have performed at Sat Nam Fest, Bhakti Fest, the Kripalu Center, and hundreds of yoga studios and wellness centers throughout North America. They have trained many budding sound therapists on the therapeutic aspects of the Gong. Over the past 20+ years Mike Tamburo has become well known as a multi-instrumentalist and polymath, performing and recording ecstatic and transcendental music as well as folk, ambient and sometimes unclassifiable sounds. He is also an artist and a film maker. As he worked deeper and deeper with the sound current and his own self healing practices, he discovered the healing power of the gong and other tuned metal instruments (singing bowls, bells, sound plates) as well as the healing power of mantra and toning. In 2008 he met Gallina Tamburo, who was on her own journey of healing. Their shared love of ecstatic music, kundalini yoga, the gong, sound therapy, and sacred chanting set the foundation of their relationship, marriage and eventual musical collaboration. In addition to completing their Kundalini Teacher Training at the mother ashram in Espanola, NM and Yoga For Youth Training with Krishna Kaur they have studied with Gongmasters Don Conreaux and Sotantar. They are also trained in the Peter Hess Method of Sound Massage using Himalayan Singing Bowls for healing. They have also studied with John Beaulieu in his Body Harmonics approach of sound healing with tuning forks.

The duo have released 6 CDs together and also run the Sounds Eternal record label that has released many of Mike’s solo recordings. Together, Mike and Gallina have developed their own style of relating to the therapeutic vibrations of the Gong, incorporating ancient wisdom and infusing it with creativity, playfulness and joy.

There is an expansive, blissful, ethereal and epic quality to Crown of Eternity’s music. They are truly immersed in vibration. Their CDs include Gong/Bell CDs: “Dream Architecture”, “Earth in Space” and Mantra CDs: “When the Music’s On”, “Vibrate the Cosmos” and “The Cosmos Shall Clear The Path” and Mike’s newest hammered dulcimer release “The Way To Be Free’.
