OFF GRID LIVING
At the Crystal Ashram you can learn about different methods to convert your property into an off grid home and offer pathways and ideas to do so. Unique rocket stoves, Earthship air-conditioning, building kilns, outside ovens, and rainwater collection are just a few of the principles and structures that will be demonstrated on the property during community activities. 98% of the materials used in the renovation of the Annapolis Crystal Ashram are reclaimed lumber and/or cut and milled from dead trees being taken down and the structure uses passive solar collection for water and space heating. We will also be teaching people affordable practical ways to reduce their carbon footprint/energy usage. Classes and workshops will be offered throughout the year.

Each session follows a path of activation through the chakras with gentle guidance to support participants coming back to their breath and their truth.
Body Work sessions will include many different forms of meditative hands on relaxation techniques depending on the particular practitioner that is doing the work. These forms may include Thai Message, Swedish and Deep Tissue Message,Trager Psycho Physical Integration, Ayuervedic Body Work, Reiki, and Craniosacral.
Guided Qigong sessions will also help one in channeling and focusing their inner energy and promote healthy movement in their day to day life. Qigong works with Qi, or the natural life-force energy, and promotes a calm relaxation that creates a sense of agelessness in the body. In the Ashram Qigong actually works with gongs as well as we actually use large gongs to enhance the experience of energetic absorption.
