The Four Desires is a yoga-based life design program providing a platform to expand into the full expression of who you are through aligning with your highest Self. Drawing from the teachings of ancient yogic scriptures, The Vedas, and based on the book, The Four Desires, by Yogarupa Rod Stryker, you will be given valuable tools and personalized action plans that will help you to become the architect of your own life.
Through exploration of the four desires; Dharma (life purpose), Artha (means), Kama (pleasure), and Moksha (spiritual freedom), you will create a fresh, strong, clear foundation to balance these four important areas in a way that helps you to design and live the life you truly deserve and desire! Using lecture, meditation, and personalized exercises, each student will explore and discover the habits, patterns, and unconscious thoughts and actions that prevent them from achieving and living the life they truly were meant to live.
This powerful program is organized so participants have intense learning opportunities as well as time to complete and contemplate exercises in order to apply them to the life design formula. This yields a series of life or dharma "codes" that become the foundation to help create an exciting new vision and framework for the future.
The Weekend Retreat includes 15 hours of lecture, gentle exercises in yoga, meditation, deep systematic relaxation as well as an extensive workbook for writing exercises. (For Yoga Alliance members, this course counts for 15 contact and 10 non-contact hours in Philosophy.) In addition, participants will receive a 45 minute private session to refine their work, and two follow up group phone calls. As a gift, each student will also receive a free copy of Karen's book, The RESOURCE-FULL Body.Class size is limited to ensure personalized service and assistance as you move through the work.

"Working with Karen has been one of the most insightful and productive things I've ever done. Her passion, knowledge and loving guidance helped me put into words what my soul was trying to express. She helped me to develop an authentic Dharma Code that I live my life by. Doing this work with Karen has opened up a new world of exciting possibilities and has changed my life forever." Ian P
"This past weekend was the best money I ever spent on myself, and worth far more than I paid. Karen's unique talents are joyful to receive, encouraging, insightful and beneficial to everyone. I am grateful for the Divine guidance. After the course, I discovered it was not about learning how others (in the book) succeeded, but knowing myself in ways I never had and what that can do for me. I now look forward to each day, as I add new pieces to my success." Tina H
