Create a Mala Workshop

October 28, 2023

9 am – 4 pm

Join Ananda Ma and Shanti in the spiritual process of creating your own mala.

Mala beads are a form of prayer beads that originated in Tibetan Buddhism and inspired the rosary. Malas are sacred tools used in meditation. In the process of creating your own mala, Ananda Ma will guide you in intension setting and will share with you several mantras you can use with your mala to help you center, break through old patterns and grow.

With Shanti we will also use Vedic astrology to enhance our creations. With this tool we look to the stars to find out more about who we are and how we can align closer to our Vedic birth charts. You can include 6 beads specific to your chart in your new mala to make it special and the most helpful when you wear/use it! You will also take home your 30 page Vedic Astrology Birth Chart.

All materials will be provided including a yoga class, light refreshments, lunch, and the opportunity to chant with the harmonium. There will be a variety of gemstone choices for you to create your mala.

What to bring:

-A headlamp if you have one, reading glasses, personal yoga mat (we have here as well), special Guru beads or pendants you would like to include in your mala, a smile and a willingness to learn!

Stay tuned for the registration link!

Joy Embodied Yoga Retreat

Fall 2023 – Date TBD

8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Join us for a day-long retreat at Eldorado Ashram to deepen your connection to your inner reservoir of happiness and integrate joyfulness into your body and life.

This workshop is informed by the ancient yogic techniques and philosophies that guide our practices here at the ashram, in addition to the leading happiness research available today.

Through yoga, meditation, reflection, group discussion, and outdoor movement, we will explore the intersection of modern scientific research and the teachings of our lineage. This holistic approach is proven to increase happiness and well-being, and we hope to cultivate a joyful environment throughout the retreat experience that will cascade into your daily life. 

Our day will include a 90-minute yoga class, guided meditations, a discussion on implementing happiness research and techniques into your life, a nourishing lunch, a meditative hiking experience (weather permitting), and additional practices and reflections to embody the constant, inner state of joy we all have access to.

Seva Days

Seva is a time-tested ancient yogic practice. For thousands of years first in the ancient East, selfless service (seva) has been at the forefront of ashram life and is what sustains a spiritual center of this kind. As a result, the community at large benefits from a truly unique location that is solely used to let go of personal dramas, tensions, and help propel a seeker toward their spiritual growth and their natural state which is full of bliss.

Seva is not just doing a job and “going through the motions.” Seva as much as the practice itself, is an attitude carried by those who are looking for inner freedom. Instead of sweeping the floor and thinking of what you’re going to do on Friday night, you’re simply sweeping the floor. Instead of potting plants or digging weeds but in your mind mulling over your to-do list, you’re staying present with the plant, with the soil, with the action of pulling the weed. You might wonder how on earth could this bring you any benefit. This is what you learn by doing seva, which could literally be any action you find yourself doing. Staying present, focused and mindful with whatever you’re doing, without concern for how it’s going to benefit you, is the secret to finding pure joy in action.

When a person (whether committed Sangha or not) commits an hour, a day, or more to selfless service at an ashram they are not only helping sustain the center, but they are also putting in the necessary work to break down tensions inside which will lead to a more fruitful meditation practice. On the first Saturday of each month, the community comes together to do just that, and would love to have you join us! Contact Us
