One of the primary intentions of Kula is to offer our community a sacred space dedicated to both self exploration and self expression. In this spirit we regularly offer single day and weekend workshops as well as 4-6 week workshop series focusing on a array of spiritual disciples and creative arts programs. Yoga workshops offer a way for practitioners to deepen their studentship through a more in-depth focus than a drop-in class allows. Our creative arts workshops are designed to support you in becoming fully self expressed whether that be through creative writing, drawing, painting, drumming or learning improv comedy amongst many other offerings.

About Vedic Meditation:
Vedic meditation practice uses a mantra, a vibrational sound, that can help quiet the mind and settle the body. A mantra pulls you into a subtle state of awareness that some compare to a feeling like lucid dreaming. Those just learning Vedic meditation use seed mantras, simplified sounds that are the best meditation method to learn how to meditate on your own as a beginner.

Vedic meditation is simple to learn and easy to do. It’s effortless. It’s gentle. It is open to anyone of any age or physical ability. It requires no special equipment and can be done almost anywhere. And it fits easily with our modern busy lives.

In the Beginner Course you learn how to meditate with a mantra, using the simple technique of sitting comfortably, eyes closed, twice a day for twenty minutes at a time.

This is a different technique then we have been using where the mantras are not being chanted aloud but kept in the mind. Matt will give give more details on all of this.


Create a Thriving Private Wellness Business with Jessica Coyne
November 4, 2018
Investment is $50

As teachers and healers we can run ourselves into the ground trying to take on as much business as possible. In our field, there can be a lack of consistency and we want to “take what we can get” so to speak. What if I told you there was a way to do less and make more? To capitalize on your work with your clients so that it is fulfilling to both you and them? Learn to get away from single-sessioning yourself to death and learn to create fun, fulfilling AND lucrative packages that will maximize your client’s experience but preserve your energy. The nature of this shift will require some inner work, but I promise it will be worth it in the end! Take this journey with me as we learn what’s been holding us back from truly owning our own worth and then rewrite that old story so we can show up for ourselves and our clients in new and exciting ways!

Mindfulness 101: Intro to the Theory & Practice of Mindfulness

Mindfulness has exploded into the mainstream over the last several years. It has been shown to be effective in reducing stress, anxiety and impulse control, as well as improving mood, well-being and resiliency. However, mindfulness was originally taught as a path to achieve freedom and liberation from everyday existence, a state referred to as Enlightenment or Awakened. The integration of mindfulness’s traditional Eastern roots with Western psychology and Neuroscience has been called Secular or Modern Mindfulness and has undoubtedly contributed to its popularity.

Despite the current trends and hype, mindfulness practice can be limited if it does not have a specific focus or aim. For many people who are new to mindfulness, or for those who haven’t had access to clear and practical instructions, developing and maintaining a regular practice can be challenging and even daunting. At this workshop, certified and qualified mindfulness teachers, Gus Castellanos, MD & Chris Robinson, will offer the “nuts and bolts” of Mindfulness drawing from the framework of early Secular Dharma Teachings, the Four Foundations of Mindfulness, as well as the science behind why this practice has proven beneficial. We will discuss what Mindfulness is, what it is NOT, and some of the recent research. We will be diving into the primary Mindfulness practices, allow time for inquiry, educational teachings and Q&A.

This event is appropriate for anyone who is interested in knowing more about mindfulness, and in improving their well-being. Mindfulness has the potential to transform one’s life in every way.
