Exploring the Kanda: Seat of Our Creative Potential

Using their divine sight, yogis can perceive patterns of energy and intelligence far more subtle than the physical world. They have passed this knowledge down to us, along with practices to tap into the hidden powers of the body and mind.

Many tantric texts describe the kanda (bulb), from which the nadis (currents of life force) emerge. As with bulbs found in a garden, the kanda is the source of potential and nourishment—and embodied life is the plant that sprouts and flowers.

Join Sandra Anderson for this live lecture and practicum to get a glimpse of what the kanda means for our quality of life and spiritual growth. Explore movement and breathing practices designed to unleash your power of vitality, protection, and nurturance.
