The 5 Elements Mandala & Tantric Psychology 



An experiential weekend of Shiva/Shakti embodiment practices that increase your power, presence, stillness & bliss; including mantra, mudra, subtle body anatomy, meditation & many other fundamental tantric practices from the Kaula Tantra tradition. “Kaula” means the entire cosmos, embodied in the form.

5 Elements & Emotions Mandala Lecture

Friday, Oct 28th, 7:30-9:30PM 

Cost: $25 (or $208 for whole weekend)

Emotional reactivity is the fastest way the human body is depleted of its life force (aka “prana” – the energy needed to refine consciousness). Without a spacious mind and emotional stability, all the energy cultivated through yoga postures, breathing, and mantra gets caught in a constant cycle of repletion/depletion, and thus, the body-mind cannot stabilize heightened levels of consciousness. In this introductory talk, we uncover the fundamental root fears and elemental forces at play behind anger, jealousy, pride, addiction, overwhelm, and fragmentation (plus the entire spectrum of all emotions!); and learn how to transform these powerful energies-in-motion (e-motion) into insight, trust, joy, generosity, compassion, wonder & totality.


This Talk Is For Anyone Who’d Like To:

~ Gain a map for recognizing & navigating the emotional reaction patterns in your life

~ Understand yourself better and identify key fears that limit the free energy within

~ Recognize and make use of the elemental forces behind your emotions for your self-evolution


Ongoing Studies: This teaching is an introduction to a 7-month “Yoga of Mind: 5 Elements & The Emotions Mandala” Individual + Online Tantric Sadhana Intensive Program Amanda is offering beginning on Jan 1st, 2017, as well as an intro to a 5-part Tantra yoga workshop series called “Cultivating Emotional Intelligence”, coming to Noorish in February 2017. Come join this talk if you are interested in a committed, individualized Tantric Immersion program for yourself in the new year!

The Power Practices: Working with Shakti

Sat Oct 29th,  3:30pm – 9:30PM

Cost: $108 (or $208 for whole weekend)

Saturday’s workshop begins by deepening our understanding of Friday evening’s teaching, exploring the relationship between Shiva & Shakti, the Feminine and Masculine Principles of Consciousness, and dispelling the purely sexual understanding of Tantra. Afterwards, our time together will focus on approachable and applicable energy practices of Shakti (playing with form), including a study and practice of the placement of the matrika (matrix) of Shakti, power, in the subtle body through the Sanskrit alphabet – all are practices that increase your levels of vitality (prana), access your power, and strengthen your capacity to relate deeply and intimately with the world around you. Also, learn how to work with the horizontal energy fields, which are about being in a lively and connected relationship with life!


What Will You Receive?

~ An understanding of the relationship between projection/reflection, power/presence, light/vibration/sound, central, internal “I AM” awareness vs. peripheral, external “I AM THAT” relational-awareness

~ Deeper ability to feel subtle energy in your body

~ Cultivation of healthy energetic (pranic) boundaries

~ A journey through each of your energetic centres & cleansing of the subtle body (Chakras)
