Tap Into Your Center of Intuition!
Ajna chakra is the “command center”, governing all the chakras that lie bellow. It is also the doorway to higher consciousness. We often refer to as our “third eye,” because it interprets and gives meaning to the world we take in through the lower chakras. When this energy center is open and balanced we’re intuitive, imaginative, able to visualize and can see things clearly. When this energy center is blocked, ie when it is underactive / tamasic, we get stuck in our own belief systems and are unable to imagine change. When this energy center is in excess / rajasic we can be delusional and have difficulty differentiating truth from fantasy. The entire practice including the asana, restorative poses, visualizations and yoga nidra will be designed to open our “third eye”.
For more than two decades, the nationally award-winning nonprofit Girls Write Now has broken down the barriers of gender, race and poverty, elevating the voices of writers who are too often not heard—or worse, silenced.
Girls Write Now serves a diverse community of girls and gender non-conforming youth – 90% of color, 90% high need, 75% immigrant or first generation, and 25% LGBTQ+/gender non-conforming. These underserved teens, who have long been negatively impacted by a lack of resources and opportunities, face significant challenges to educational and professional success.
At the core of its work, Girls Write Now pairs these young people with professional writers as their lifelong mentors and role models, working closely with them to navigate their professional and personal goals. One-to-one mentoring is combined with writing and multimedia workshops, college and career preparation and wellness services. Each Spring mentees publish their written and digital pieces in Girls Write Now award-winning anthologies and many are published in mainstream media outlets. 100% of senior mentees go on to college armed with portfolios and a strong sense of self, more than half with awards and scholarships. Most importantly they are inspired to hone their craft, find their voices and share their stories. More about Girls Write Now can be found on their website https://www.girlswritenow.org.
