Tuesday Mantra Practice

Every Tuesday

7:00pm - 8:30pm

Suggested $5 donation

Join us on Tuesday evenings for your Mantra Practice.

We will  begin our Tuesday evenings with an invocation to Lord Ganesh.
Ganesh of the single tusk, the mover of obstacles, who penned  the Mahabharata with his own hands, is one of the most prominent deities in Hinduism. Ganesh has the unique distinction that his name is always invoked before any other God's name in any prayer service.

Lord Ganesha's mantra is Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha. Ganesh himself represents OM, the chief mantra or Pranava. So Ganesha is evoked before beginning any rite or work. He received this distinction as a blessing from his parents, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati. Lord Ganesh is designated as the eesha(chief ) of all of Lord Shiva's ganas(servers) - hence his name, Ganesh.    

Hanuman mantra removes all fear. This mantra is a negative energy destroyer. When reciting this repeatedly, one prays that Lord Hanuman vanish the fear from our minds and bless us so we may be happy and find solutions to our problems.

Hanuman, the son of the wind god that aided Lord Rama in his expedition against evil forces, is one of the most popular idols in the Hindu pantheon. Believed to be an avatar of Lord Shiva, Hanuman is worshiped as a symbol of physical strength, perseverance and devotion. Hanuman's tale in the epic Ramayana - where he is assigned the responsibility of locating Rama's wife, Sita,  abducted by Ravana, the demon king of Lanka - is known for its astounding ability to inspire and equip a reader with all the ingredients needed to face ordeals and conquer obstructions in the way of the world.

Experiencing Divinity Through  

"A Course in Miracles" 

With Raymond Boeri 

Study Group Sessions -continues Thursday, April 24

 

7:00pm  $15 per class                           

 

Join with Namaste Bookshop's own Raymond Boeri as he takes you through an exploration of A Course in Miracles, a thought system in book form that can help us transform our individual preoccupations with  "seeking" and "becoming" into the total acceptance of fully "being," and affirming our Oneness with all life everywhere through the practice of forgiveness.

Raymond will guide you through a study of the daily exercises that comprise the Workbook for Students, the "practice component" of this thought system, whose intention is to help us transform and, ultimately, undo the ego and move us into a greater experience of "perfect spirit." He will also help you understand the theoretical Text of the Course  as the necessary philosophical underpinning of the daily exercises. Raymond will also integrate his understandings from other teachers to help us ground, once and for all,  the feeling of non-separation from life, beyond the belief of it.  

 Raymond has been a member of the Namaste Bookshop family since October 2011. He is an ordained interfaith minister, grief counselor, medical and addiction/recovery intuitive, life coach and long-time meditator.

Workshop 

"How to Dismantle Killer Stress  

and Induce the Alpha State: at the Same Time!"

with Dr. Tom Sullivan

Friday, April 25th

6:30pm - 8:00pm $25

 

Stress is the number one killer in our society today. It makes any and all disease processes worse. Heart disease, diabetes, cancer, ulcers, hypertension, digestive disorders, fibromyalgia, radiating pains, numbness, tingling, depression, negative self-talk, duress, nervousness, sciatica, carpal tunnel, and many more conditions are made much worse when stress is introduced.

 

What if there were a way to effectively combat stress without the harmful side effects of drugs or chemicals. What if there was a way to enhance the alpha brain wave state instantly? What if there was a way to promote a positive, inner actualized, life enhancing mood as opposed to a negative, outer reactive stress state? What if this could be done while reducing or even eliminating all of those troublesome aches and pains we tend to experience as we age: neck and low back pain, shoulder pain, hip pain, leg pain, sciatica, numb arms or hands, or pain between the shoulder blades?

 

In this powerful presentation, Dr. Sullivan will discuss how stress is killing our society, specifically how it causes problems with our health, why it is the number one cause of aches and pains, and the number one cause of degeneration. He will also discuss the horrible side effects of dealing with stress by drugs and harsh chemicals.


Dr. Tom Sullivan is a lifelong competitive athlete who discovered the benefits of stress reduction practices as a student-athlete earning his bachelor's degree at The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD.

After graduating from Hopkins, with a passion for natural health and helping people, he decided to earn his doctorate of chiropractic. He graduated from Life University in Atlanta, in 1997, and has been helping people in a very profound way ever since.

 

Now, at his private practice in downtown Manhattan, Dr. Sullivan practices what many call the most effective, reproducible, hands on manual stress reduction technique ever developed. Unlike any traditional forms of chiropractic, massage, physical therapy, acupressure, acupuncture, meditation, or visualization, his unique technique promotes the emergence of the alpha wave frequency in the brain. This alpha wave state is the most healing, inner reverent, and peaceful of all of the brain wave frequencies. As a result of nurturing the alpha state within people via his work, Dr. Sullivan's patients report incredible spiritual improvements above and beyond the usual associated relief of aches and pains.

How to Discover and Use your Money Mantra”

 

with Cary Bayer
Part I - June 26th
$25 
 
At many of the 20,000 meals you ate growing up in your parents’ home, you imbibed their beliefs about money—many of them quite disempowering. Taken together, the most negative thoughts from your mother and the most negative from your father create your own Family Money Lie.  Your Money Mantra, on the other hand, is the empowering message that turns this lie on its head and enables you to transform your family’s limiting message and begin creating the financial abundance you were born to enjoy.

"PUSHING UPWARD"
by Andrea Adler
Thursday, May 8th
6:30pm - 8:00pm  
Free
pushing.jpg

 Pushing Upward is not a Bra! It's a State of Mind!  Winner of the Los Angeles Book Festival Award and Hay House "Pick of the Month", this fascinating Roman clef takes us through one epic year in the life of 21-year-old Sandra Billings. While trying to eke out a living as an actress in L.A., she discovers the I Ching, the ancient Chinese oracle; and uses it as her GPS to navigate a torrid love affair, battle with demons of the past, and search for meaning and truth.

How do we know we are making the right decisions? How can we be certain we are following the right path - our souls destiny? Adler examines the art of divine intervention, divination tools, and how we can stop the never-ending pitfalls of indecisiveness and tap into knowing every step of the way we are in sync with our highest purpose.

Adler will also discuss the history of the I Ching, demonstrate with an audience member how to ask the oracle appropriate question, toss the coins and reveal the oracle's answer.

Andrea Adler, referred to as the "Metaphysical Marketer," is the founder of Holistic PR, an international speaker, workshop presenter and consultant. Adler pioneered Holistic Marketing in the early 80's and has authored: PR for The Holistic Healer, Creating an Abundant Practice, The Science of Spiritual Marketing: Initiation into Magnetism. She has written over 50 articles translated in five languages, toured the world with her methodology, and for over 30 years has supported small business owners, authors, cultural creatives and entrepreneurs to discover, message and market their products and services

"Sacred Sound"

 

by Alanna Kaivalya

 

Tuesday, May 13th

 

6:30pm - 8:30pm  
Free

 

 

 

In yoga practice, mantra and kirtan (call-and-response devotional chanting) get short shrift in the West because they aren't well understood, though they are an integral part of almost every Eastern spiritual practice. They are designed to provide access into the psyche while their underlying mythology helps us understand how our psychology affects daily life. Sacred Soundshares the myths behind the mantras and kirtans, illuminating their meaning and putting their power and practicality within reach of every reader.

Each of the twenty-one mantras and kirtans presented includes the Sanskrit version, the transliteration, the translation, suggestions for chanting, the underlying myth, and its modern-day implications. Based on Alanna Kaivalya's years of teaching and studying the myths and sacred texts, this book offers a way into one of the most life-changing aspects of yoga practice.

 

 

 

Alanna Kaivalya is the founder of the Kaivalya Yoga Method and an internationally known teacher and author. In 2008 Yoga Journal recognized Alanna as one of the Top 21 Teachers Under 40. Her first book, Myths of the Asanas, showcased the myths behind the poses, and she has developed an e-course based on the work of Joseph Campbell called Following Bliss: A Modern Mystic's Guide to the Hero's Journey, which teaches practical tools for inspired living. In her decade-plus of studying mythology, eastern spirituality, philosophy, and yoga, she has traveled the world and taught at conferences, teacher trainings, and workshops. She offers teacher training in the Kaivalya Yoga Method as well as Pure Yoga Immersion. She is currently a PhD candidate at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Join her community atalannak.com

"The New Tarot Handbook: Master the Meanings of the Cards"

Finding Your Style of Reading in the Major Arcana of the Tarot

How would the Magician read someone's cards? How would the High Priestess, or the Empress? What would the Devil do? How does a Sun reading differ from a Moon reading?   The 22 named and numbered cards of the Major Arcana are the core of the Tarot, what makes it unique. These cards form a spiritual teaching, a series of lessons, and a set of meanings that we can use in readings. But they also embody different approaches to life and its challenges, including the very act of reading the cards. We will look at the different readings suggested by the cards, try a few out to discover their differences, and then try a technique for each person to discover her or his own way of reading the cards. This workshop is experiential and open to all levels. Please bring along a Tarot deck.

Rachel Pollack is the author of 36 books of award-winning fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and art. Her Tarot books are praised all over the world as "the Bible of Tarot readers." Her work has been translated into 14 languages, and she has taught workshops across the United States, and in Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and China.

 

May 20; Mark Michaels and Patricia Johnson - "Great Sex Made Simple: Tantric Tips to Deepen Intimacy & Heighten Pleasure"

Relationship as Spiritual Practice: A Tantric Approach

Our Guru's Guru defined love as "profound interest." In this workshop, we will explore some elements of successful relating and provide practical tools for sustaining your connection, while cultivating a sense of reverence, regardless of relationship style and sexual praxis. A simple shift in consciousness is all it takes when the going gets tough, and consciously maintaining an attitude of interest in your partner will make the good times even better. This approach applies ancient Tantric concepts to modern conditions.

Mark A. Michaels and Patricia Johnson are a devoted married couple. They have been creative collaborators - teaching and writing about sexuality and Tantra together - since 1999. Michaels and Johnson are the authors of Partners in Passion (Cleis 2014), Great Sex Made Simple, Tantra for Erotic Empowerment, and The Essence of Tantric Sexuality.

"365 Tarot Spreads, Revealing the Magic in Each Day"

Launch Party - 

Questioning Tarot 365 Days a Year, The Power and Joy of Daily Practice

Great power lies within Tarot and yourself but how do you unleash it? Rote memorization of card meanings is not the answer. True mastery of the cards lay in the questions you ask. Good inquiry and smart spreads are the cornerstone of enlightened readings for yourself and others. And it leads to personal evolution. But how do you know what the right questions are? How can you receive the most powerful answer? How can you reach out and manifest all your dreams and desires? What makes a good tarot spread? We will examine the nature of self-determination, destiny, desires and dreams. We'll look at powerful questions guaranteed to evoke change simply by asking them. Because one simple question can alter the course of your life. And we will celebrate the grace and power of tarot put to use every day of the year.

"The Energy of Words: Harness the Vibration of Language to Manifest the Life You Desire"

Power Words: The Key to Manifesting the Life You Truly Desire

The Law of Attraction states that "like attracts like" and what we think about most often becomes our reality. We think, speak and write in words and language plays a huge role in the life we create for ourselves. Words have started and ended wars, built and destroyed nations, created peace, saved lives, launched life-changing movements, formed musical or literary masterpieces, and brought clarity or misunderstanding to people and situations for centuries. The power of words is unmatched in terms of human expression. No other form of communication has the ability to profoundly affect and drastically change both our inner and outer world like words.

Michelle Arbeau is an internationally recognized celebrity numerologist, multi-published author, inspirational speaker, and radio and television host. She is frequently a repeat guest on radio and television outlets such as CBC radio, CTV Morning Live, Cititv, Breakfast Television, LA Talk Radio. She lives in Los Angeles, California.
