Rev. Anthe, aka Kunga Tsomo and Desert Flower, is enormously honored to devote her teaching to Akasha Yoga School, to the students drawn to this program, and to the path of yoga, teaching, spiritual practice and growing in authenticity. As the founder of Akasha Yoga School and Healing Arts, and Blossoming Heart Ministry, Anthe has devoted her life work to creating outlets for people to explore the sanctity of their inner-being and to provide the space, openness and guidance to give permission to others to venture deep into this journey within and to quicken their awakened state of connectedness with the whole web of life.
Anthe is honored to welcome a powerful group of teachers to share in the 200-hour Akasha Yoga Teacher Training program, many of whom were inspirational teachers in her path of growing as a student, teacher, and human being. She values the diversity and fluidity of viewpoints and approaches, and cherishes the thread that connects them all. To Anthe yoga asana becomes a form of embodied movement which may be expressed through any number of means but ultimately it is one performed with devotion, awareness, fluid identity and connected sanctity.
Anthe views her role as Lead Teacher at Akasha Yoga School as one where she serves openly as a steward for others’ processes, inviting them to grow in the ways that are most empowering for them according to their individual natures; to provide everyone, alike, with a solid base and form for teaching a meaningful, intelligent, embodied vinyasa class with confidence and purpose; and to open many doorways of possibility to support the continuing exploration of self-study, potentiality and inspired learning and being.
Also, as an Ordained Minister of Her Walking Prayer Rev. Anthe resonates with being a "Devotee of the Mother." She acknowledges herself as a perennial student and sees this process of Evolution as a multi-dimensional school. "I feel so blessed to participate in this Earth school with its great challenges and even greater Beauty and Blessings.
I subscribe to the view that all life and truth can be found within ourselves, and our "higher power" dwells here-- within. At the same time I view the small "we" as expressions of an infinitely great life force and source, and in turn see our job as "simply" being a vehicle for this source. We are allies of Life, and our job IS to protect and sustain and nourish this inner light that Life breathes through us and entrusts us to shine. I see this as our calling.
Each one of us possesses a special Medicine, a healing gift that we give to others. What we really need to do, and give each other permission to do, is to be ourselves. Our true selves. There is no special "task" or program (though our "selves" may subscribe to many programs and undergo many tasks) but in its simplest form, we are called simply to be who we are. (And that is the challenge!)
I pray that every step is one taken in conscious surrender, honor, beauty, grace and courage. And I pray that each honors the sacredness of the life within and without in its blazing beauty and abundance."
With her Reiki, healing and Ministry work Anthe embraces you in a spirit of openness, acceptance, genuineness and support. She views her role and service as one of collaboration with you on your individual path of healing, transition and transformation. Together we will surrender to life's unfolding and blossoming and find the truth that comes with trust:
“The only way is through."
