PERSONALLY TRAVELING THE MAGIC SQUARE
with KAT VILLAIN
SATURDAY 7/22 1:45-345pm
The magic square is a tool to travel your mind through the body increasingly refining your form in the physical postures and the ethereal imagination. Understanding this esoteric alignment within your body allows you to constantly organize yourself so you are at your best. This alignment is used to travel through the territory of the body’s map, hitting each room in your house, so you can organize your inner world. This repetition allows space for insights, enabling you to refine your form consistently until you are a conduit in which current can move through effortlessly and with ease. Explore this ancient glyph in your own body in order to move closer to cosmic alignment and watch as life unfolds with grace. Kat will guide the magic square through the postures and through the more subtle but impactful pranayama practice. *Nevine Michaan’s map drawn by Susan Fierro.

COMMUNALLY ADJUSTING THE MAGIC SQUARE
with KAT VILLAIN
SUNDAY 7/23 1:45-3:45pm
In this workshop, will focus on participating in the bigger picture, one’s community, by using the magic square as a tool to adjust others. Refining the magic square inside of your own body is a way to organize your internal space. After you have an understanding of what is going on inside it becomes a joy to move outside of yourself and participate with the world around you. It is also hard to see yourself and where your blind spots are. With community you have the opportunity to have a vision that wouldn’t have been available to you alone. Allowing someone else move you in a direction you never thought to go you will see something new. By lending a hand and learning how to read the magic square in each other’s bodies we will adjust one another to move communally into a more unified vision. It is to understand ourselves and our fit to the world outside of us.

Pleasure, this state of pure contentment, is accessible to each of us. A body in a state of pleasure cannot harbor disease. This workshop is designed to take you into the depths of your pleasure, unraveling time, creating a sen-sate experience that will allow you to unleash the sacred feminine and divine goddess that lies within. The ability to manipulate the nervous system through touch, smell, breath, and movement is key to unlocking deeply held patterns that hold us back from our potential. Focusing on the pelvis and the breath, rippling current through the spine, specific techniques will be used to place you in a state of altered awareness and heightened experience. Pleasure and bliss lie within - when these perpetual currents and waves flow fluidly through our spine they uplift us into vibratory and radiant beings. This is a gathering of women. Wear something comfortable yet gorgeous, a scarf to use as a blindfold, come open and vulnerable, release conditioning, dance with the divine.
