WHO ARE YOU AT THE VERY CORE?

You’ve come a long way. A lifetime of learning and discoveries has brought you to this point––the ground you’re standing on now.

 

Darkness has paved your path, too; you wouldn’t be who you are today without those past storms and stumblings.

 

A sacred light guides your path - the light of spiritual awakening. Can you feel it? Ignoring the call to Grace would mean relinquishing all you’ve learned and discovered.

 

Now is the time to delve into the immeasurable essence of who you really are.

 

At Akasha, we want to help you discover your way. Our 80-hour Spiritual Heart Meditation Teacher Training Program offers a guided space to connect to the supreme reality of being and the very core of your existence.

 

 

Don’t stop now. Your Soul is calling you home.

Study & Practice Relevant Mantras

All the world is vibrating, and mantra is the science of how to use vibration to tap into the deepest parts of who we are. If you are new to this style of meditation, get ready; it is a very direct and powerful way of discovering who you are.  We will use mantras chanted out loud and silent mantra meditation, using bija mantras to dive into the natural stillness and wonder of the eternal now.

Pranayama & Asana

In our experience, meditation is not always an easy habit to establish, mostly because people have busy minds and lives.  Understanding how the body, breath, and the energy or prana can help you discover your stillness is a vital part of the yoga and meditation experience.  We give you simple tools to discover energy, using the body and the breath to go deeper into your essential nature. Be ready to discover Pranayama, Yin Yoga, and Hatha Flow practices to open the door to mediation.
