Jnana Yoga: The Physics of Joy

Benjamin Rolnik

Jnana Yoga: The Physics of Joy

About 1600 years ago, Patanjali identified 4 distinct paths of yoga (meaning union with the sublime): Raja Yoga (the "royal" path of meditation), Bhakti Yoga (the path of devotion), Karma Yoga (the path of work or action), and Jnana Yoga (the path of knowledge). 

I love this distinction because Patanjali makes it clear: if you want to experience UNION with FLOW... there are 4 ways... and I spent about 12 years of my life banging my head against the wall with 3 of them, until I found the path that worked for me: Jnana Yoga. 

Today, I'm able to access supernal states like unconditional love, joy, and peace because I understand the mechanics of my physiology and how it integrates with the phenomenology of being. I've been able to do extraordinary things with my mind, body, and spirit -- not because I'm special -- but because I have deeply understood the nature of my mind and reality. Before I understood these things, I suffered immeasurably. I'm still learning profound nuances daily, but I fully attribute my life satisfaction and fulfilment to my Jnana Yoga practice -- to the knowledge and tools that I have been cultivating from master teachers since I was 7 years old. 

In this playshop, I'll be sharing one of my favorite Transformation Tools around accessing powerful states -- specifically JOY. You will leave with a firm understanding of the physics of Joy... and suffering -- and how you can harness the will's power in the hydraulics of emotion. In other words: how to access Joy anytime, anywhere. 


At 7 years old, while most children were out having fun Benjamin put a bottle of lysol to his mouth to end his life... Since then, he has been on a quest to understand the nature of suffering, joy, and how to live a good life. This journey has led him around the world personally learning "transformation technology" from some of the greatest living teachers in the world today. These tools (and a daily practice) have freed him of the suffering he experienced at 7 years old. Now, Benjamin continues to learn new transformation technologies and trains transformation leaders. He is also the founder of Conscious Family Dinner and Integral Fitness.

Listen For Laughs with Zach Zucker

Often times we enter with such strong ideas that we forget about the most important thing in the room - the audience. We either go too fast without letting them join in or we do too much and scare them off. But if you let them, they'll tell you exactly what to do. In this playshop we focus on reading the room by slowing down and unpacking every moment. Get ready to either love or hate this. 

Zach Zucker is an award-winning, internationally-renowned comedian and producer. A graduate of Ècole Philippe Gaulier in France, Zach has performed original comedy shows at Comedy Central, Edinburgh Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival among others. He is one half of Norwegian-American double act Zach & Viggo and is the creator of LA-based, independent comedy label Stamptown.

KundaWhat?!?  - Kundalini Yoga like it has never been taught before.

Get a taste of an amazing playshop on awakening your Kundalini energy.
Kundalini energy is the most powerful energy in your body. It usually sits dormant at the base of your spine until it awakens. Once awoken, you will posses what some people call Magical Power. That Power that has been within you since the moment your were born. But, you never used it because you didn’t know about it. Kundalini Yoga is one of the best-kept secrets. It simply hasn’t been introduced to the public in the proper way. But if you're ever lucky enough to experience it, here's what you can expect:

- Strong presence that everyone around you will sense (No longer can you go unnoticed)
- Strong intuition also known as third eye (See solutions in any challenging situations or even avoid them)
- Fears will be gone (Strong believe in yourself)
- Motivation heightened (Jump right out of your bed excited for life)
- Increased creativity (Free expression of your gifts)
- Powerful Will to manifest your dreams (The law of attraction will work for you)
- Magical glow (Look younger, feel better)

And much more!!!

Ending Racism

 The Playshop

John Ma

AWARE ALLYSHIP: the “Inner Work” of Ending Racism

What might it mean - and how might it feel - to believe you could be completely close with all people from all backgrounds?

To stand against racism is to dare to be close - to nurture deep, lifelong relationships with people who are different from ourselves.  For many of us, this is helped along by doing “inner work” to identify and dislodge from our minds whatever embarrassments, inadequacies, and past defeats we fear prevent us from having completely close relationships with all humans.

In this playshop, we'll start that journey by recovering an early time in our lives where we truly believed we could have those relationships.  A time when we reached wildly for others, and knew in our bodies that we were completely good.  When we eagerly showed ourselves to everyone - with our faces, our voices, and the closeness of our bodies.

We’ve lived for many years in a society that has made it hard to love so openly.  Many of us simply don’t feel we are capable, any longer, of loving anyone that much - much less everyone!  But we can.  And in this playshop, we’re going to rediscover how utterly natural it once was - and can be again.


John Ma is a somatic liberation counselor who promotes body-based, trauma-informed approaches to growing intersectional alliances across race, class, gender, age, and other lines of difference.

Playshop Description: How do we greet one another? From friends and family to perfect strangers there are certain formalities we tend to follow. Explore the power of breaking through those social pleasantries and greeting a complete stranger from a place of vulnerability.

Ask Your Deepest Questions to the Opposite Sex

Bob Schwenkler & Seth Perler

Ask Your Deepest Questions to the Opposite Sex

What would you do if you could ask the other sex your deepest questions about dating and sex AND HAVE THEM ANSWERED DIRECTLY?

Like, should you reach out if you haven’t heard from him yet? Are all guys really just sex hungry or do they actually want more than that? What was his best blowjob ever and how can you one-up it next time?

Or, can you tell a woman you’re interested in that she is hot? Does she ever fake orgasms? What was the REAL reason she stopped replying to your texts?

In this full disclosure panel discussion, you can ask anything you want and get different perspectives from the opposite sex. Robert Schwenkler and Seth Perler will curate the experience to guarantee that you learn things you won’t anywhere else.

All questions will be submitted anonymously so that you can be as frank as you want.

This promises to be a fun, irreverent, and deeply enlightening Playshop.

We begin with an opening circle - an easy way for us to get to know each other and build group trust, safety and compassion. Next, we take you through a soothing series of activities to help you breathe, relax and let go. From there, we share with you a skillful mix of guidelines and practices so that you can learn the unique etiquette of a cuddleevent and have a chance to try them out with each other. You’ll practice your newfound skillz in paired and group activities that always have non-touch options. It's about this time that the magic starts to happen. You will be amazed how comfortable you feel!


About Jean Franzblau:

I laugh a lot these days, but it wasn’t always like that. It took me years to realize I was just touch deprived! I leveraged my years as a corporate trainer and coach to found Cuddle Sanctuary. It started out as something I needed for myself, but it’s evolved a lot! Now I have my basic needs for affection met every week. And I have the connection, community, laughter and fun I’ve always wanted.
