About the Full Series: From October 2018 to January 2019, Omaha Power Yoga is excited to bring back Astara of Illuminating Hearts for a Heartifact Archaeology Playshop Series: Soul Tools for the Luminous Path. This four-part, heart-centered series is a great way to delve into soul technologies from the eco-system of Heartifact Archaeology. You can bring these tools home and in the world, helping you navigate with more ease and grace the beautiful, but necessary, intensity of our times.

Across four Saturdays of heart play, we will explore sacred song, soul journeys, guided meditation, divination practices, fluid movement, breath work, and sound alchemy. You will learn about the power of gut-heart-mind coherence, tarot and divination, shamanism, emotional freedom technique and other bioenergetics tools, accessing the Akashic record, dowsing, and many other psycho-spiritual disciplines.

Shift to a new world view. Despite what your small self tells you, the good news is you are creating it all. Enter the magic of systems thinking in a universe based on cooperation, inclusion and integration as you approach your heart, your mind, your body. Invite your true nature into your community and the world. Astara teaches knowledge, skills and practices that can be used in a daily way to explore the layers of wisdom inside you, so you can reconnect to your unlimited personal power and love yourself to a new place.

Saturday November 10th, 2:00pm-5:00pm

What is Heartifact Archaeology?
The term "Heart-i-fact" expresses the immense knowledge held like golden keys in the tiny space of your heart, where your brightest light is held. You are biophotonic, you are literally made of light. There is a halo, an aura, a rainbow body, a field of luminosity, that is inherently human and can be cultivated, expressed and sustained as a daily practice in your life. This series provides you with a more advanced dive into soul tools that unlock your own heartifacts to build circuits for your luminous path.

Heartifact Archaeology (HA) is generated in the intersection between science and metaphysics. HA helps you explore the diversity inside you as well as the diversity continuously creating who you are biologically, energetically, intelligence-wise, and emotion-wise. HA empowers you to a heart-centered life, using your biological and energetic wisdom as a key to unlock your souls gifts and your true inheritance of learning, connection, and expression. Transform the limited, separate, mechanized modern human hologram our society has agreed upon, to a remembered hologram of wonder, miracles and magic of being a conscious human connected to all of life in a loving society of wild humility, generosity, and grace.

Healing that comes straight from the authentic experience of the soul is the greatest kind of healing there is. Technical healing through the heart-mind and energy systems of the body is essential as well. What is most profound and powerful is that HA encourages and uses both.

This heart-centered series is a place of community gathering that is sustaining, supportive, and nourishing of being reflections of light amongst each other. You have a unique evolutionary medicine to contribute and cultivate to create more beauty and light in this world. You are deeply needed at this time. The entire team of evolution and creation is counting on you to step into your life fully and unabashedly. Love yourself into a soul-aligned life. Discover your own YOUniverse centered in your heart. Unlock your essence and highest potential with your heartifacts. Love your life out loud.

In this magical playshop, Astara will guide you to:
πŸ’› Understand a new framework of the YOUniverse and the role your heart plays
πŸ’› Heighten your awareness of your luminous body
πŸ’› Deepen your gut-heart-mind connection for greater resilience in everyday life
πŸ’› Explore fluid movement and sound for greater embodiment
πŸ’› Daily practices to build circuits in your body so you can capacitate more light
πŸ’› Insights and tools to awaken and empower your intuition
πŸ’› Perform divination for others and interpret the metaphors you are shown

πŸ’› Become conscious of the Akashic Records (the Book of Life) that is available to all
πŸ’› Build intimacy with your shadows
πŸ’› Transform victimhood (object consciousness) to empowerment (creator consciousness)
πŸ’› Expand your understanding of the truth of your genetics, your body, and evolution
πŸ’› and much more!

What others say about Heartifact Archaeology Playshop:

"What an incredible experience, the Heartifact Archeology Playshop set the stage to put into instant practice what we were gifted. With our spoken intentions at the outset, we glided through the rich content of Astara’s teachings and while held in the group embrace of love and respect we bathed in the beautiful healing sounds, explored our path of intent, and received jewels from spirit. My own personal intent of creative focus and integration of all aspects of my life with my artistic life was fulfilledβ€” with boundless inspiration I simultaneously produced a 4 x 5 foot painting illustrating the gift received. Thank you Astara for the brilliance you shared with us, thank you Orion for your fresh exuberance, and thank you both for the amazing sounds that guided us on our journeys. I am illuminated." - Julie Jenowe, Omaha, NE

"Thank you so much for providing the blueprints for transformation.  Heartifact Playshop provides knowledge and tools for meditation, visualization, muscle testing, tarot, dowsing, cleansing and a multitude of metaphysical and scientific concepts with applications for my life and within our universe. One of the greatest gifts from the weekend is my newly acquired skill to visualize and access my garden.  It is a safe place where I am now able to experiment and find comfort and rejuvenating energy.  This garden has informed my creativity and is guiding me on how to write my own mythological creation story. I have been profoundly influenced and transformed by this weekend.  It is still in process, but what has already transpired is nothing less than miraculous." - Cherine Bishara, Omaha, NE
