New Moon Jam is June 14!
Let the drumming sounds unite spinners, dancers, musicians, and all who hear the call.
These jams are natural acts of co-creation to energize, elevate, and build community as inspiration takes us. We gather close to the lake to enjoy the mood of the water. So wade in for a swim, build a land of sandcastles, as the muses move you.
Good news! Beach Yoga Chicago will be holding a free kundalini yoga class which will lead into the drum circle. Class will be from 630- 730pm, this month led by GuruNischan Khalsa. Let’s breathe, move, drum & dance together under the beautiful new moon rising over the Lake. Visit here:
for more info.
What is Kundalini?
Kundalini is an energy that already exists within each and everyone of us, usually in a dormant state. This means that most people never feel nor ever know its there. The Sanskrit word Kundalini means coiled. In the yogic tradition Kundalini energy is portrayed as a coiled serpent lying dormant at the base of the spine. To raise the Kundalini means to awaken and enliven this creative energy, freeing energy in the lower body and allowing it to move upwards. Enlightenment or an awakening of the spirit occurs when this energy is activated and directed to the higher centers of the body.
Kundalini Yoga is known as the Mother of all Yogas and often referred to as the yoga of awareness because it focuses on the expansion of sensory awareness and intuition in order to raise individual consciousness and merge it with the Infinite consciousness. Kundalini Yoga’s purpose is to cultivate the creative spiritual potential of a human to uphold values, speak truth, and focus on the compassion and consciousness to heal yourself and serve others.
Thanks everyone! A lot more to come, including from the Dog Beach Drummers, and hopefully more throughout the season!
