Kundalini Yoga Taught by Guru Joe Jackson
The purpose of Kundalini Yoga is to provide a modality by which people can achieve their maximum creative potential, free themselves from Karma and realize thier life purpose.
As a bonus, Guru Joe Jackson will conduct a Meddatative Sound Bath at the conclusion of the Spring Gathering. Sound Bath is like a concert with gongs, cymbals and singing bowls. The resonance of the instruments is strong and it's not just an auditory experience - it's also like receiving a sound massage. Some people experience deep states of relaxation and others use the sound as a way to focus thier minds to experience a deep state of consciousness, increase mental focus and awareness.
