LEVEL 1 COBRA BREATH INTENSIVE
“LEARNING TO LIVE IN BLISS” ~ DISCOVER YOUR MAGNIFICENCE
Ipsalu Tantra is rooted in Babaji Nagaraj’s Tantric Kriya Yoga. Ipsalu is a time honored brand of tantra which offers a complete integrity, insightful practices and a consistent 3 level path. Very rarely Ipsalu is taught on the East Coast. We are happy to host this wonderful teaching at Galiana and give you an opportunity to practice authentic Tantra Kriya Yoga and receive Cobra Breath transmission from Nayano, senior Ipsalu teacher who is coming to us from Florida.
You will learn to:
~Connect your sexual energy with spirituality & expand your heart.
~Transmute sexual energy to rejuvenate the body & stimulate creativity.
~Create and deepen relationships.
~Prepare to awaken Kundalini safely using Cobra Breath.
~Express both the shadow and light sides of your divine humanness.
~Surrender to removing energetic blocks at a cellular level in your body & heal stored emotions.
~Open yourself to manifest your heart’s longing.
The weekend is comprised of a mixture of lecture, movement, dyad, emotional flow process and learning the techniques of the practice. Each session builds upon the next…
Ipsalu Tantra Kriya Yoga
Ipsalu is a blend of Babaji Nagaraj’s Tantric Kriya Yoga and Osho Rajneesh’s body oriented, celebration of life. The rest of the Ipsalu system has come mostly from Taoist and Tibetan sources, and from lessons in the school of life. All together they produce a synthesis that works well in the unique energies of our time. This body of work is an accelerated path to higher consciousness. The techniques work on all levels of a person’s life, strengthening the body, calming the emotions, enhancing the thought processes, leading to a balance that can open the door to spiritual awareness. It is a complete path that helps clear repressed emotional energy held in the body, open energy pathways, balance male/female energies, raise emotional and spiritual maturity levels and safely awaken Kundalini.
Ipsalu, a method for maintaining Bliss was developed by Bodhi Avinasha, founder of Tantrika International. Bodhi and her mentor, Sunyata Saraswati, co-authored the Tantric text: Jewel in the Lotus. Bodhi went on to evolve the Tantra Kriya work, recognizing the cosmic importance of feeling states and matters of the heart. Her latest book: The Ipsalu Formula ~ a Method for Tantra Bliss, is a companion to the orignal text.
The key practice, the method for transmuting sexual energy, is the Cosmic Cobra Breath. This advanced and powerful method was given to us by Babaji and is the forth step of the Ipsalu Formula. The Ipsalu Formula is the core of the daily practice. This is a method for attuning to Bliss. It is a formula that works in all circumstances, if you are willing to relax into it.
These are the five steps in the sequence:
1.) Activate energies in the body.
2.) Still the mind.
3.) Arouse sexual energy.
4.) Transmute passion.
5.) Enjoy the TantraBliss.
Once you have been initiated in Cobra Breath and begin a daily practice, your life will change. This is a one-way journey, once aware, you cannot go back to being unaware.
Nayano Burdineenior Ipsalu Tantra Kriya Yoga teacher, certified to facilitate the most advanced Ipsalu workshops and Teacher Certification trainings.
“I have been teaching Tantra Kriya since 2002, a practitioner of the healing arts of massage therapy and energy work since 1996 and a Reiki Master/teacher since 1999. I have created a series of healing workshops and processes from my own healing journey…some I describe as “dance therapy”. As an Osho sannyasin, I traveled to India on two separate occasions to study and learn more about my path as a teacher. I resonate deeply with Osho’s philosophy of non-dogmatic, self-mastery and living with totality, honesty and full heart. I feel intensely that my purpose as a teacher is to support others in becoming more alive, awake and to be living their truth and purpose. ” See video interview with Nayano here.
