from Ganga's forthcoming book...
by Ganga White
The chakras are not a ladder you climb up or awaken step by step, rather we find it possible to give attention to all these levels at once or in any combination.
Meditate on the earth
On which we live
Who is home and mother
Ground and root of our being
The foundation of manifestation of our energy
Meditate on waters
Flowing with rains, rivers, oceans, lakes
The formless and shaped by structure
Water, form filling and formless
Express gratitude for fire which powers our lives...

Yoga of Music, Sound, and Vibration
July 5-7, 2019
with Sven Holcomb
Join us in a celebratory weekend of yoga, music, sound, and vibration with musician, yogi, sound recording engineer, and UCSB professor, Sven Holcomb. Let us immerse you in the sacred sanctuary of White Lotus and nurture you with exquisite, gourmet, plant-based meals in a weekend filled with harmony, community, and good vibrations.
Enjoy daily asana and pranayama classes mixed with live sound. Learn how to attune to the natural rhythms in your breath, in your heart beat, and within your life cycles. Gather for group sonic meditations and ceremony with vocal and percussion based harmonics, and move to a special evening musical performance with Sven and guests.
Get your music, meditation, and vibrational fix in a weekend resonating with the beauty of nature. We promise you will leave elevated and in a higher resonance.
Sven's talents are so multi-faceted. A gifted teacher, a skilled musician, a valued White Lotus community member, the list goes on... If anyone has the gift of good vibrations, it's Sven.

The aromas beckon first and call you to gather around the beautifully laid buffet at every retreat meal. Your mouth begins to water. Your eyes feast upon color. And your mind starts churning out the question, how do I make this dish?
Query no more. Enjoy some of the best spring has to offer in this delicious one-pot pasta that is rich with green...not for envy... but with veggies from the earth and the knowledge you too can make this!
