"What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important of all voyages of discovery, and without it the rest is not only useless but disastrous."
- Thomas Merton
Galactica Institute was founded in 1992 by Dr. Santi Meunier and Christopher Curren after twenty years of their own personal and professional journeys. From its beginning, the guiding light of Galacticta has been the pursuit of human healing and transformation. Within each one of us is a spark of genius and humanity that calls to be discovered, liberated and channeled into a useful and fulfilling life. When we discover our true purpose, our lives take on a whole new meaning.
Yoga Therapy for Addictions
Winter Program: January 24-25, 2013
Event duration 2 days: 7:30-9:00 AM / 9:45 AM-1:30 PM / 2:45-5:30 PM
In this two day intensive workshop we will examine the three-fold nature of addiction and its impact on the body, mind and spirit. Drawing on the information in Santi’s latest book, “Dying for a Drink, The Hidden Epidemic of Alcoholism”, you will learn about the disease of alcoholism, why it is a disease, and the role that genetics, brain chemistry and hormones play in the evolution of the disease. Addiction is always the effect of underlying issues which, when uncovered and addressed can begin the healing process. Participants will learn specific techniques for identifying and working with clients with active addiction, as well as those in long term recovery. This holographic treatment model includes; body reading, body mapping, stress reduction techniques, trauma release, breath work and creative visualization, as well as Raja yoga and yoga therapy techniques for balancing and unlocking blockages in the chakras, the organ meridians and regulatory channels. click here for details and registration
