Manifesting 2024: Annual New Year’s Dharma, Yoga, Kirtan & Astrology Celebration with Krishna Das, Michele Loew, Alexander Mallon, Nina Rao & Robert A.F. Thurman
December 27, 2023 - January 1, 2024
Celebrate with friends of Tibet House US | Menla as our community gathers in person to ring in the new year at Menla, the magic secret valley of the Medicine Buddha. Party, practice, and pray with us across five days of teachings, yoga, astrology, devotional chanting and more. Join us in letting go of constricting habit-patterns and setting meaningful and expansive intentions for manifesting our positive dreams for the coming year, all while having much needed fun together!
Master astrologer and astronomer Alexander Mallon will kick off the retreat with his “astrological forecast” for 2024, teaching us the basics of reading an astrological chart and shedding light on patterns we can expect in the near future as individuals, as a nation, and as a world. Alexander will also offer expert astrological consultations throughout the program and a group chart reading session that will amaze all but the most hardened skeptics.
Expert yogini Michele Loew will lead daily morning Vajrayoga practice sessions plus an evening Yoga Nidra, and Qi Gong master Paul Bloom will offer afternoon classes each day. Bob Thurman, Krishna Das, Nina Rao, and Wasfia Nazreen will offer classes throughout the day including dharma talks, lively discussions, devotional chanting, and kirtans with Nina, KD and friends, among other offerings. New Year’s eve will feature our annual group sound bath by Woodstock’s Sage Academy of Sound, a spectacular sonic meditation before a late night celebration and countdown session with refreshments at the Lhasa Inn to ring in the new year.
Together we will revitalize ourselves to deal joyfully and successfully with the challenges of these pivotal times and make strides to manifest the very best for ourselves and our communities for 2024. We hope you can join us!
Open to all levels of experience. We encourage you to register early as space is limited!
