Creativity & Compassion: Full Moon in Leo Community Gathering and Breathwork for the Heart Chakra

  • Shambhala Yoga and Dance 367 ST. MARKS AVENUE Brooklyn, NY (map)

The Full Moon in Leo on 1/21 brings an invitation to come home to our own hearts, to courageously shine a light of conscious awareness and compassion for our own journeys, our creative projects, and embrace the energy of rebirth that comes with the first lunar eclipse that accompanies the full moon. Leo's messages of the heart, family systems, creativity, loyalty, our presence and projection, how we lead our lives and how we lead each other are especially highlighted as our individual choices directly impact the collective.

We are asked to examine where we were in February 2017 (the start of this Leo eclipse season) and see how far we've come, celebrate, and feel into the fullness of this experience. We honor our past so we can then - Marie Kondo style - let go with love and gratitude, and create space new experiences in our lives that spark the joy of our hearts. This is a time to truly let go of any mind or ego-based ideas about who we are in the world and create ourselves anew with deep, heart-centered action for the good of all.

As our ancestors for so many centuries before us did, we gather in community during lunar events to bear compassionate witness to each others' stories and create sacred space for our own healing and celebration of life. Together we give ourselves full permission to nurture our wholeness, and feel into our wild, creative nature and connect to infinite possibility that lies within our being.

In our workshop we will discuss the astrology and energetics of this time through the lens of heart chakra medicine, how these may show up in our lives, and how to best harness this energy for your own evolution. We will share in group discussion, reflect in journaling, and join in a Breathwork meditation for release, compassion, and creativity.
