The Workshop

1-day Sankalpa teaser with Nirlipta

Sankalpa is an ancient concept that harnesses the power of strong desire to turn focused and undistracted imagination into reality. In this one-day workshop, you will learn how goals really work in order to uncover the purpose and meaning of life. Focusing mainly but not exclusively on Yoga Nidra practices, the day is suitable for those who are seeking direction in life and of those who may already be working with an existing Sankalpa. The day will be immersive and utilize concepts also taken from the world of trance, self-hypnosis, and particularly self-dialogue.

What you will learn in this workshop:

• Tools to work with deep goals that come from the core of oneself

• Insight into how to utilize strong and subtle energies to realize goals

• Immersion into Nidra’s and meditative practices to build a strong momentum

• Insight into journaling and how this is related to realizing purpose and meaning

The day will be an overall focused exercise using immersive experience and taught tools to harness your dreams and formulate a pragmatic blueprint towards a life interwoven with meaning and purpose.
