Raise the Roof

Prayer of Abundance for the Ashram

Prayer of Abundance for the Ashram

The Chaya Garden Ashram is invisioning how we might repair the roof or create a new one. We estimate that it will cost $20,000 and that it will take a crowd funding effort to pull this off. We are preparing a project on Indigogo and it should be ready soon.

We hope that there will be people ready to support our yoga ashram project, because we have already created a beautiful community through students around the world.

The Swami Speaks

swami robe-001 We’re working on getting the best quality Bhairava Tantra mix out there with the Swami’s blessing, and I feel like a STEWED PRUNE I’ve been soaking in the mystic bliss of Swami’s profound reading of the Vigjana Bhairava Tantra so long, I wanted it to be ready for Gurupurinam but we’ll just have to wait and see what comes out in the final mix. It will have to sound more like this, 2013′s Sri Guru Gita with Swami Shivananda Giri.

Chaya Garden and Swami Shivananda Giri Present Sri Guru Gita by Chayagarden on Mixcloud

I’m having a great time working with him.The best way to understand Swami is through his show on Blog Talk Radio, Meditative Living. Click here. We are frequent listeners. Swami is VERY interested in Belize and we’ve been having a great time doing SAT SANG over Skype. He’s as interested in Belize as we are about Yoga! Swami is always open to some Sat Sang, which is a spiritual gathering, which will be great no matter what mode or technology we are using. Only one technology we’re talking about… Yoga. Swami has been enriching us with his knowledge for some time. We feel gratitude for all the ancient TRUTH he is sharing on Yoga, and the playfulness and POWER that he brings to it. I personally love to hear him talk about ENLIGHTENMENT. http://www.meditativeliving.info/ LET US KNOW if you’d like to have SAT SANG with SWAMI SHIVANANDA GIRI in BELIZE!

A Chaya Garden Ashram, Swami Shivananda Giri Collaboration

We’re excited to offer you this reading of Vijnana Bhairava Tantra, a classic yogic text. The message has been enhanced with 10 unique and creative musical backgrounds, for your listening pleasure. Also known as The Yoga of Wonder, Delight, and Astonishment, The Bhairava Tantra is a transcript of a conversation between Shiva and Shakti, on the finer points of achieving absorbtion, disolution, and bliss.

EDIT This mix is now unavailable, because we don’t want to lose even one word of this ancient text to the soundtrack which appears loud in parts. Just a few touch ups and it will be good as new!

Yoga Blog 06/11/2014

I recently have been thinking about Shakti yoga, which is the yoga of the breath.  And it occurred to me, why a dedicated yoga practice IS SO IMPORTANT to the shakti Yogins.  It is because the yoga practice helps to regulate the breath.   The breath is a profoundly blissful experience if you are tuned in to it.  All it takes is a little pranayam exercise.   At the Chaya Garden Ashram, every breath is beautiful.  How do I do it?  It’s not just the air, it’s the sound, the light, the space of the ashram, all of the elements, and the tuning into the NOW that takes place in a yoga practice.
