WE RISE Playing with Prana

"A human being is an island of excellence.  We are born to excel.  Our core is Pure Consciousness; luminosity is our essential nature.  Our most distinctive attribute is our ability to know our own essence - our own intrinsic divinity.  Life is a priceless gift, for life endows us with everything we need to experience our grandeur.  Discovering the intrinsic divinity at our core is the highest achievement; dying without experiencing it is the greatest loss."

~ Pandit Rajmani Tigunait

WE RISE is a 28-day guided meditation practice. We are a growing community of yogis tuning in from around the world. We work with techniques and truths passed down for thousands of years through the Himalayan Tradition. The techniques are simple. The truths, profound.

We meet daily via Zoom 

7-7:30am Pacific Time

 Wednesday, September 2nd - Tuesday, September 29th 

Playing with Prana

Each round of WE RISE is unique.  In Playing with Prana we continue to grow our sensitivity to Prana, the vital life force.  Prana is the catalyst for all movement including physical, mental and spiritual reception, digestion, elimination, growth and expansion.  Prana moves in us and through us by way of the five Prana Vayus.  Vayu means wind.  These five winds, when flowing freely and clearly in our bodies and minds, are the means by which we evolve to maximize our experience of being human. 

“Prana is the primordial ripple of the life force – beginningless and unending. Self-intelligent, it is the vibrant force that breathes life into matter. Prana is not our creation – we are its creation. As humans, we have been given the power and privilege to further awaken and gather Prana Shakti and thus fill ourselves with a higher degree of vigor, vitality, strength, stamina and intelligence.”

~ Pandit Rajmani Tigunait

A little about me...

I am a member of the living lineage of the Himalayan Tradition.  My teacher is Tracee Stanley, one of her teachers is Rod Stryker, one of his teachers is Pandit Rajmani Tigunait, the spiritual head of our lineage.  His teacher was Swami Rama, the yoga master who brought our Tradition from India to the United States in the 1970's.

I have been practicing yoga for nearly 20 years and was initiated into this lineage four years ago.  I resisted meditation for many years and was slow to develop a loving relationship with the practice.  Fortunately, my teacher is very patient and continued to offer opportunities for me to experience for myself the profound transformative potential of a devoted meditation practice.  I was a late bloomer, but bloom I have.

It is now my intention to offer the same opportunity to you.  Come as you are.  I wouldn't have it any other way.
