Sankalpa is a Sanskrit term in yogic philosophy that refers to a solemn vow, or a resolve that leads you toward your highest truth. Every moment we create intentions and resolutions, and our habits are just one example of how unconscious intentions shape our lives. Through the art of self-inquiry, we can begin to uncover new ways of being that will inspire us to live a more empowered and purposeful life.  

Join spiritual teacher and author Tracee Stanley for an experiential workshop on the deeply illuminating and nourishing practices of yoga nidra, deep rest, self-inquiry, and the auspicious Sankalpa.   

Tracee provides guidance through simple and accessible self-inquiry exercises—supported by the practices of deep rest, restful listening, and yoga nidra—to open the doorway to self-remembrance. In this workshop participants learn how to weave both the awareness and power of Sankalpa through three states of consciousness: waking, dreaming, and deep sleep. Throughout the workshop Tracee guides participants through meditation, mantra, visualization, free-writing, rest, and mindful movement exercises. 

Discover life as a sacred ritual and self-devotion as a path towards awareness of your true self.
