Light and Inspiration in Calgary

March 11, 2009 by claire

Calgary teachers with Swami Radhananda & Swami LalitanandaAs part of an upcoming series of outreach workshops, Swamis Radhananda and Lalitananda came to Calgary and led 43 participants through a light-filled weekend, February 27th to March 1st.

The workshop began with a forum on Friday night – “Bringing Yoga to Life,” a Hidden Language class on Saturday afternoon – “The Inner Life of Asanas” and a Kundalini and Straight Walk class on Sunday – “Finding the Wisdom Within”.  Satsang with the Swamis brought the Light filled weekend to a close.

Forty-three people came from different parts, including Crowsnest Pass, Pincher Creek, Lethbridge, Edmonton, Red Deer, Montreal and Calgary. Net proceeds from the workshop totaled $5,779 and $500 worth of books, CD’s and Ascent magazines were sold. More importantly, those who came and participated were renewed and filled with the fresh inspiration of the teachings.

Following are some excerpts from some of the Calgary teachers who helped organize the workshop:

The Swamis conveyed the Teachings in a fresh, new way as they were presented in a non linear, inspired and inspiring way, meeting the needs of the moment by the Swamis’ intuitive perceptions.
~Namaste, Marlene

There is an afterglow shining, vibrating
Swamis Radhananda and Lalitananda are still with me on one level
Because of their Light and their presence,
Inspired by other workshop participants,
A new seed is planted; clarity comes.
I take the first step and relax into listening for the next first step
i will get there

With gratitude to my teachers and these teachings.
~Hari Om, Faith

From the Straight walk:

Time is ticking away
Use it wisely
Be ready to respond
When the door opens
and Tara says, “You are One with me.

Inspiring workshop – so grateful to have the two Swamis bringing the Light into focus!!
~Namaste, Lynn

workshop in process!The weekend underlined for me again how simple practices can take me to places 
of deep understanding in a very short order.  I quickly moved from being in a 
tight place in my mind to a more expansive place that allowed me to have more 
choices available to me.  One of the choices is; rather than distract myself, to 
simply enter into what is; a second choice is to not take things personally.
~Hari Om, Michelle

This week I kept remembering the feelings that developed through the Sunday workshop – that life always unfolds in rhythm, that relaxation is more helpful than striving. By coincidence my co-workers had asked me to lead a mini yoga session before work this Thursday.  I was easily able to offer relaxation after being so filled with it, and was interested to see how thirstily they soaked it up then asked for more next week.  I am ever grateful to have this exposure which gives me something ( many things!) to offer to others.
~Hari Om, 

As you can see from the other reflections, the workshop was a huge success. By Sunday evening people’s faces had softened, their eyes were sparkling and Swami Radha’s books and CD’s flew of the shelves. Participants left the studio radiant and strong.
~Om Tara, Susanne
