This year will help you do that and more...

In this year-long immersion, you’ll get grounded in 10 habits that make up dinacharya or "daily rhythm. " These habits will help you to establish a healthy lifestyle that naturally leads to robust health, a strong immune system, and a calm mind.

 

These  10 practices support an expansion of awareness, and fuel a sense of purpose and belonging. Along the way, you'll find renewed energy, better rest, and more resilience in your relationship with others.

You'll also learn about the science of habit change, so we can successfully actualize our potential even when the initial motivation wanes.

Imagine how good you could feel in a year if you were consistently improving your habits every day.

LIVING AYURVEDA

Ayurveda is the "Science of Life"

 

Its practices teach us the preventive medicine we need to support our body's innate capacity for healing and longevity. These habits, rooted in Vedic wisdom, have the power to change the trajectory of your life.  The habits are simple, but not easy-- a return to a natural, intuitive way of living, connecting us more deeply to our bodily rhythms, and to those of the earth.

The Habits we'll learn together are:

  • Easeful Living

  • Earlier, Lighter Dinner

  • Early to Bed

  • Start the Day Right

  • Breath, Body Practice

  • Principles of Healthy Eating

  • Whole Foods Plant-Based Diet

  • Sitting in Silence

  • Sense-Organ Care

  • Self-Massage

The course is delivered over three trimesters.

 

In trimester one you are introduced to the habits.

Some of them will come easily to you, and you'll reap the benefits from them right away. Some will be new to you and you will just begin to learn about them and find out how they fit into your life.

 

In trimester two, you really dig into practice.

In the second round, you go deeper with the habits that were easy for you and begin to work with those that are less intuitive.  You meet your resistance and learn to deal with it with kindness and understanding. You find ways to work the habits to support you in all aspects of your life. You begin to change as a person, you feel better, and you are more in touch with what is possible.

 

In trimester three, you live the habits.

By the third round, you have dialed in many of the habits and are living from a more resourced place.  You know how to listen to your body, and which habit to go to when you feel "off." You let go of perfectionism as you rest into the various cycles you pass through.  You know how to take care of yourself on a daily, weekly and seasonal basis.

Are you ready for a real change?

Give yourself the support and guidance you need to make the changes you’ve been wanting to make. 

Change takes time.

When we look at Nature we can see the cycle of growth in real-time.  We take a year so that we can establish our roots and create a sustainable practice moving forward.  Through wise living, we move into deeper body/mind/soul integrity and learn to listen and understand our body's messages. The container of a year allows us to move through the seasons together and to learn how to adapt our practices to different times of year.  With the support of the teachings, Shannon's guidance, and the wisdom of the group body, we will make progress more easily, building self-confidence and trust in our inner wisdom body one step at a time.

“Shannon is inspirational and deeply committed to sharing her experience in ways that are useful to each participant. She is a deep listener, curious and deeply committed to being in the service of each of us. She is resilient and this is more important now than ever. The overall experience is nuanced and yet experimental. I love that aspect of working with Shannon.”

I loved all the exploration that was spurred on by other members’ struggles and successes that I resonated with and also those which expanded my perspective and aroused compassion…all from the space Shannon maintained. Through it all Shannon is very professional and always the leader, maintaining enough distance to maintain our respective roles and things are always clear and straight forward with no blur or uncertainty. As the yoga and meditation aspect, that could be another essay–it’s clearly her gift and calling to share and engage others through these practices. They are varied, grounded in self-love always, and when are deeply received, exquisite.” -

“I wanted to send an email to you to let you know how this program has changed my life. I think of the world very differently in general now, not just my body but everything beyond me too. I’m not getting everything right but I am more aware than I have ever been about the choices I make. Thank you for your guidance and teaching. I’m moving toward the goals on my “What and why” list and enjoying the progress that I can already see. I also notice that I bring something different to those around me. My energy is changing and it’s so exciting and satisfying to experience these changes.”
