Saturday June 23rd 2pm-3:30pm
Another Full-Service...coming right up! If you've been before, you know how yummy it is. If you haven't tried it...you are in for a treat! This full-service restorative will melt you into relaxation. No need to move a muscle as Cara Lustgarten and her assistant physical adjust you and the props to move you through each restorative pose.
Restorative Yoga is a practice that is accessible to every body, and it is the ultimate act of self care. In her book Restorative Yoga Therapy: The Yapana Way to Self-Care and Well-Being, Leeann Carey says that restorative yoga is "like a massage for the nervous system and encourages self-inquiry, reflection and change, rather than perfection.” Full-service Restorative takes this theory to its maximum capacity; we will practice long holds of gentle stretches, each one fully supported by props that are set up and adjusted for you, allowing relaxation, healing, and transformation.

Lighthouse Yoga is excited to host Astara of Illuminating Hearts for a Heartifact Archaeology Playshop: Soul Tools for the Luminous Path. Step through the "lions gate" of 8/8/18 into this 9 hour, three day playshop that introduces you to the eco-system of Heartifact Archaeology. There will be subsequent playshops later this year for a deeper dive into the advanced modules of specific soul tools.
This Heartifact Archaeology Playshop is a weekend intensive to help you shift to a new world view of creation, systems thinking, cooperation, inclusion and integration as you approach your body, your true nature, your community, and the world.
Astara teaches knowledge, skills and practices that can be used in a daily way to explore the layers of wisdom inside you, so you can love yourself to a new place. In addition to all the tools and skills you will gather, you will soak in Organic Sound Alchemy each day as well!

During this playshop, Astara delivers an overview of diverse array of tools to you: gut-heart-mind coherence, tarot and divination, shamanism, emotional freedom technique and other bioenergetics tools, accessing the Akashic record, dowsing, and many other psycho-spiritual disciplines.

What is Heartifact Archaeology?
The term "Heart-i-fact" expresses the immense knowledge held like golden keys in the tiny space of your heart, where your brightest light is held. You are biophotonic, you are literally made of light. There is a halo, an aura, a rainbow body, a field of luminosity, that is inherently human and can be cultivated, expressed and sustained as a daily practice in your life. This playshop provides you with introductory soul tools to begin to dig deep into your heart and unlock your own heartifacts to build circuits for your luminous path.
Heartifact Archaeology (HA) is generated in the intersection between science and metaphysical. HA helps you explore the diversity inside you as well as the diversity continuously creating who you are biologically, energetically, intelligence-wise, and emotion-wise. HA empowers you to a heart-centered life, using your biological and energetic wisdom as a key to unlock your souls gifts and your true inheritance of learning, connection, and expression. Transform the limited, separate, mechanized modern human hologram our society has agreed upon, to a remembered hologram of wonder, miracles and magic of being a conscious human connected to all of life in a loving society of wild humility, generosity, and grace.
Healing that comes straight from the authentic experience of the soul is the greatest kind of healing there is. Technical healing through the heart-mind and energy systems of the body is essential as well. What is most profound and powerful is that HA encourages and uses both.
This playshop is a place of community gathering that is sustaining, supportive, and nourishing of being reflections of light amongst each other. There is a Jekyll and Hyde, our own light and shadow, that is normative within each human. This playshop is about finding a love relationship between our shadow and light. Together, we allow the shadow to be in intimacy with the light, and allow the light to use the lessons from the shadow, from the dark, to shine bright like a diamond.
You have a unique evolutionary medicine to contribute and cultivate to create more beauty and light in this world. You are deeply needed at this time. The entire team of evolution and creation is counting on you to step into your life fully and unabashedly. Love yourself into a soul-aligned life. Discover your own YOUniverse centered in your heart. Unlock your essence and highest potential with your heartifacts. Love your life out loud.
In this magical playshop, Astara will guide you to:
💛 Understand a new framework of the YOUniverse and the role your heart plays
💛 Heighten your awareness of your luminous body
💛 Deepen your gut-heart-mind connection for greater resilience in everyday life
💛 Explore fluid movement and sound for greater embodiment
💛 Daily practices to build circuits in your body so you can capacitate more light
💛 Insights and tools to awaken and empower your intuition
💛 Perform divination for others and interpret the metaphors you are shown
💛 Journey into the future and the deep past for more information
💛 Become conscious of the Akashic Records (the Book of Life) that is available to all
💛 Build intimacy with your shadows
💛 Transform victimhood (object consciousness) to empowerment (creator consciousness)
💛 Expand your understanding of the truth of your genetics, your body, and evolution
💛 and much more!
What others say about Heartifact Archaeology Playshop:
"What an incredible experience, the Heartifact Archeology Playshop set the stage to put into instant practice what we were gifted. With our spoken intentions at the outset, we glided through the rich content of Astara’s teachings and while held in the group embrace of love and respect we bathed in the beautiful healing sounds, explored our path of intent, and recieved jewels from spirit. My own personal intent of creative focus and integration of all aspects of my life with my artistic life was fulfilled— with boundless inspiration I simultaneously produced a 4 x 5 foot painting illustrating the gift received. Thank you Astara for the brilliance you shared with us, thank you Orion for your fresh exuberance, and thank you both for the amazing sounds that guided us on our journeys. I am illuminated." - Julie Jenowe, Omaha, NE
"Thank you so much for providing the blueprints for transformation. Heartifact Playshop provides knowledge and tools for meditation, visualization, muscle testing, tarot, dowsing, cleansing and a multitude of metaphysical and scientific concepts with applications for my life and within our universe. One of the greatest gifts from the weekend is my newly acquired skill to visualize and access my garden. It is a safe place where I am now able to experiment and find comfort and rejuvenating energy. This garden has informed my creativity and is guiding me on how to write my own mythological creation story. I have been profoundly influenced and transformed by this weekend. It is still in process, but what has already transpired is nothing less than miraculous." - Cherine Bishara, Omaha, NE
