This sacred event will take place in the Cosmic Temple beginning with a Fire Ceremony. Each being is born with a Consciousness Seed, a pure element of our soul which gets distorted over time by our environment, by choices, and outer influences. The Earth also has a Consciousness Seed. Carol facilitates a specific Pranashakthi healing through collective chanting of sacred Sanskrit mantras first to the Consciousness Seed of each person and then to the Earth specifically for this purpose. The Consciousness of each participant is raised and revitalized with deep healing! This healing is very powerful in large groups. The Earth is so loving and the ancient lineage of Pranashakthi also holds a power to assist humanity to remove suffering. Darshan from Earth gives to each soul a very beautiful blast of loving energy that is much needed at this time. The Earth sends deep and unconditional love back which raises the vibration of each person and modulates people’s energy[...]
Please join Carol Whitney for the weekly sacred fire Ceremony and Kirtan! This satsang generates peace and tranquility for the Mission District and surrounding areas. As a Pranashakthi energy healer master Carol calls in my connection to Divine and intentions to create a space that is soothing and healing. The ceremony consists of offerings of Mantra and ghee to the Fire. The event is public and by donation. All proceeds go to Yoga Society. There is a brief meditation. Carol leads the Kirtan with Harmonium and voice. Participation in the chanting is highly recommended but the results can also be felt if you listen only.
