Balance Your Energy in the New Year – Chakra Awareness with Yoga on Zoom

SAVE THE DATE!  January 8, 2022– 11 AM Pacific

with Mary Sobiechowski

Will 2022 bring renewed health and happiness? Will you do all you can to feel great and get yourself together mentally, physically and spiritually? New beginnings are beautiful as we let the past go and embrace the future.

All aspects of your well-being depend on the smooth flow of energy. When unencumbered and spinning freely in the right direction, your chakras move energy between your personal field and the energy field of the universe.

If you are looking for a great way to start fresh for a healthy New Year, this workshop will help you apply your yoga practice to bring renewed awareness and balance to your energy body.

 

Mary has been practicing yoga for over 30 years and teaching for over 10 years in New York City and Amsterdam. She is a technologist, artist, and single mother of two wonderful children. Her classes integrate the physical alignment of vinyasa flow, chakra energy, and a spirit of playfulness. Her goal is to have students step off the mat refreshed, nourished and balanced.

Fall Navaratri 2021: Wednesday, October 6th – Thursday, October 14th

Navaratri is time a time set aside each year for honoring the presence of the Divine in our lives. As the seasons merge, it is a perfect time to enhance our practice or bring a change into our life. During this sacred time, we are encouraged to make an extra effort to come closer to our spiritual practice. Mother’s Grace and guidance is constantly being showered upon us – all we have to do is be available to receive it and hear it by keeping our heart and mind clean and steady.

Babaji’s daily Navaratri satsangs can be accessed here:  Navaratri Satsangs

The Navaratri satsangs are also available in podcast format on Spotify and other podcast services as “Baba Harihar Ramji’s Navaratri Satsangs

Sonoma Ashram Foundation Day – Celebrating 30 Years

On September 21, 1991, Aghoreshwar Bhagwan Ramji and Babaji along with Baba Anil Ramji and Father Dunsten inaugurated Sonoma Ashram in Sonoma, California.

At that time I was living at Sky Farm in the Sonoma hills and Baba was visiting from India. September 21 is the day that we traditionally celebrate the founding of Sri Sarveshwari Samooh – the social service organization that Baba founded in India in 1961. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to receive his blessing. We wrapped flower petals into the flag and raised it. We did a small puja, and then Baba then pulled the cord, showering us with flower petals. I felt deep within as if Baba’s blessings had been bestowed for the beginning of an ashram in Sonoma. The ancient lineage of Aghor had officially arrived in the U.S.

Sarveshwari Times Newsletter

Sarveshwari Times has been an offering of love and has touched the lives of many over the decades.  The Hindi version was originally created by devotees of Aghoreshwar Bhagwan Ramji at the start of the Sri Sarveshwari Samooh organization in 1961.  Baba Harihar Ramji carried this tradition to the U.S. when he founded Sonoma Ashram.  Over the years, many have lent their time and energy to keep this flame burning.

We are honored to continue this publication in this new digital media to suit the call of the times.  We hope you can carve out some time each month to enjoy an inspirational teaching from Babaji and some updates on recent events and programs.
