COMING UP IN SEPTEMBER:

Red Tent with Liz

Saturday 10/6/2018 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Our Red Tent Denver is a Sisterhood Tent of the Our Red Tent and Red Tent Temple Movement inspired by memories of the menstrual huts of our ancient past. Sisters of Denver, you are invited to join us in circle and ceremony each month on the New Moon to shed and reclaim, to support and be supported in a network of authentic relationships with your fellow womben. The Red Tent is a safe space where Womben come to share the stories of their wombs- stories of our blood, birth, sexuality, love, heartbreak, sickness, health, celebration, grief, shadows, healing and recovery as we journey through this life in the female vessel. Come and share your skills, your wisdom, and share your heart in the Red Tent. We give our blood back to the Earth in the Red Tent. No longer do we hide our blood in bathrooms and trashcans, we reclaim the power of its non-violent nature and feed Gaia with it as she feeds us. With our blood giving, our brothers, fathers, and lovers will find no more that they need to spill each other’s blood in violence. Gaia wants our blood and in the Red Tent, we make it sacred and feed her with our peace and healing intentions. We create community in the Red Tent. Too often in our culture, we are subliminally messaged with ideas that women can only bring each other down, that we must compete to be the most popular, the prettiest, the most successful. In the Red Tent, we let down our barriers. We honor our differences and know that we gather to release our judgements on how a woman is supposed to be. So step out of the box and into the circle!

Lifting the Veil: A Sattva Tantra Workshop + Cacao Ceremony with Elena and Rachel

Sunday 10/28/2018 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Join us for a very special evening where we will consume cacao in ceremony which opens the heart. You will then be guided into Sattva Tantra practices. The combination of plant medicine and sacred techniques will raise your consciousness and support you in lifting the veil, moving you beyond the physical plane and into fully embodying spirit.

What is cacao?
It’s thought cacao was first used as a health elixir and ceremonial medicine as far back as 1900 BC by the ancestors of Central America, the Olmec people, before becoming a ritualistic medicine used by the Aztec and Mayan cultures. Due to certain active ingredients that help release ‘feel good’ emotions, cacao is considered a heart opener. Creating feelings of emotional intimacy and pleasure, it has long been considered a luxurious delicacy. A cacao ceremony is an opportunity to connect to yourself and open your heart. Because of cacao’s ability to increase your connection to your inner self and your heart chakra, it aids in any transformational shift you are working towards, whether you are looking to deepen your understanding of who you are, release old patterns and traumas, or move into a more self-confident space. Whatever your path, the intention is yours to set, and the cacao allows you to the insight and awareness to move towards that goal.

What is Sattva Tantra?
Sattva Yoga and Sattva Yoga Academy is founded by world- renowned Vedic Himalayan Master, Guru, and Yogi, Anand Mehrotra. The Sattva Yoga Practice is holistic, integrative, and deeply transformational for all aspects of the human life. This practice is always evolving in its nature making it ancient and modern teachings are rooted in the Vedantic and Tantric traditions of the Himalayas, integrating the wisdom of the great gurus and realized beings practices include: meditation, breathwork, Kundalini, Kriyas, deepening connection and devotion through Laya, Bhakti, and Sufi practices, and using mantra as the healing power of sound, free movement, and Hatha Yoga asanas to distribute and ground energy. The teachings open you up to radical trust and unconditional love

Devi Elena Rose – Shakti Retreats

Elena became interested in the healing arts at a young age, becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist when she was 19 years old. In 2009 Elena created Peace of Mind Massage in Denver, Colorado; a wellness center and community of healers. When the business grew to allow Elena to step away and contribute remotely she began traveling turning her attention on her own self healing. This eventually led her to Sattva Yoga in India. Elena began practicing yoga at around the same time she became a Massage Therapist but when she discovered Sattva Yoga she learned the true meaning and power of yoga.

After completing her 200 Sattva Yoga Teacher Training Elena went on to teach in the United States, Australia, Sri Lanka, India, Indonesia, and India. She has continued to return to India for further training and now has completed 500 hours at Sattva Yoga Academy, giving her a plethora of techniques share.

As a child Elena was drawn to the arts and throughout her life has used the mediums of drawing, painting, writing, and acting as forms of self expression. Elena infuses her teaching with her passionate, creative and intense nature. She encourages and inspires her students to let go of stagnate energy, release inhibitions, and to express themselves freely and fully.

Elena uses Sattva Yoga as a tool for self mastery, self discovery, and ego self destruction. Her personal mission is to be a fearless creator, unite spirit and body, and to be of service to others. At the end of her first Sattva Teacher Training Elena had no intention to teach yoga. She found herself there for her own spiritual expansion and yet when she met with the Guru Anand, he very clearly told her she’d be teaching and running yoga retreats – specifically for women. Six months later, Elena would co-host her first women’s retreat in Bali.

Elena is based in Colorado when she isn’t traveling and teaching abroad. She has transformed her wellness center to include Sattva Tantra Yogic workshops, bringing the teachings to the United States where arguably its needed most. For Elena, becoming a Yoga Teacher has arisen out of devotion to the practice that have proven life changing for her and for many other people touched by this radical wisdom.

Together Ela and Elena make a dynamic team, their individual power multiplied by coming together for their shared retreat venture Sattva Yoga Warrior Retreats!
