Igniting the Fire of Creativity, Jan – March 2020

Are you living an inspired life? In this course we will explore meditation practices that support you to have a vital relationship with your inherent creativity, to care well for yourself and others, and to awaken the inspiration to express your life fully. You will be supported to explore the power of self-generated sound as we follow the energetic map of the chakra system within the body and chant the Five Warrior Syllables. These five sacred sounds from the tradition of Bon Buddhism have been engaged for centuries to remove obstacles and ripen the capacities of the practitioner.

During this 6-week self-guided course, 3 Doors Senior Teacher Marcy Vaughn will guide you to:

  • Learn the path of the Five Warrior Syllables and engage the practice to connect to the fundamental richness of showing up fully for your life.
  • Recognize the habitual tendencies that lead you to abandon and disconnect from yourself.
  • Practice reconnecting and reinvesting the power of your attention in the freshness and resourcefulness of the openness of your being.
  • Meet the necessary warmth of loving kindness within that allows your limiting self-stories to loosen and your inspiration to emerge, to mature, and to be expressed.
