Rootism & The Yoga of Relating - The Way of the Rootist

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Learn to relate with ourselves by journeying into grace, using gong meditation, percussion, and flow yoga as a warm up. Then we will journey into relating with each other using practices that help us connect at the deepest level of our being and build the prefrontal cortex.

What is Rootism?
As we evolve, we peel away the layers of illusion stemmed by maturity and the teachings from life experiences. If you study and inquire enough, you may find that you begin to see common threads from ancient groundwork linked to modern teachings. You may have even sensed unity at some point.  That is what is beautiful about life - there are multiple levels of exploration unique within each of us. Each layer can reveal a different angle, new areas of focus for growth or potential driven from the main spirit channel – the heart - keeper of our spark.

The Path of Oneness forks many roads & there are infinite possibilities we choose from along the way. We will learn from our experiences.

These learnings ground the ROOTS of our being with deep self-awareness. When we identify and tap into the roots of our beliefs and how we share the hero's journey, we become closer to the truth we seek.

Rootism is the belief that the truth is all around us, just hidden sometimes like a gem in the rough. It is our greatest task to polish and refine new meaning from what we have learned to create a greater vision for ourselves. Jung felt that we leave consciousness, a representation of the root chakra, and eventually delve into the second chakra to explore the unknown in order to face the "monster" and be consumed by it so that a rebirth can happen. We need courage to face the unknown. It takes courage to surrender to the monster, the dark aspect of ourselves.

The first step toward awakening is to explore the roots of all things with great awareness, eyes wide open, to find at the breakthrough, the Phoenix emerges, and our highest Self applauds our new discovery like a happily awaiting friend.

Ultimately there is only ONE truth. It's universal. Unveiling it is the Soul's journey.
