DHARMA – “The inherent drive or desire to fully realize everything we are capable of, and in doing so, positively affect the world.”

Imagine living from that place  what would your life look like if you did?

I don’t know what my Dharma is – how do I become more clear on that?

What thought constructs keep you from being at home with yourself and your life?

Why are non-helpful patterns so hard to let go of?

Answering these questions is at the core of our work together during the weekend. The Four Desires process elegantly links the timeless wisdom of the Vedas with a practice driven, personal and interactive approach to self transformation!

  • Uncover your soul’s unique purpose – Dharma– and begin to shape a life strategy so you live with a commanding sense of purpose, capacity and meaning!
  • Disentangle from your Vikalpa– the thought constructs borne from self doubt and past experiences – that bind you to old patterns and keep you from creating a new future.
  • Establish a strong Sankalpa – an intention that aligns with Dharma and helps you move toward living your unique version of fulfillment.

Open to all interested students!  No prior yoga experience required!

This immersion will include lecture/discussion, guided meditations, time for journaling, and Yoga Nidra practice.  Yoga Nidra is a powerful relaxation practice that helps awaken and tap into our mind’s intuitive potential.


This workshop interweaves yoga and life. When practiced mindfully, Yoga refines perception; and perception is the key to taking full advantage of life. Let your highest purpose be the driving force of your life. Discover the means – the tools – to fulfill your unique purpose. Delight in the joy of freedom you find by getting clear about your purpose; it’s not necessarily about your profession; it’s about WHAT YOU’RE MEANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE WORLD.

When you serve your highest purpose, you serve the well-being of the collective whole. Pamela Meriwether, is one of only a few teachers in the country certified to teach this course by the author, Rod Stryker. She began practicing yoga and meditation in 1999 and has studied with Rod Stryker for over a decade. No prior yoga experience is necessary. Just bring an open mind, an open heart, and a willingness to explore meditation.



The Four Desires is a step-by-step process that will enable you to:

  • Uncover your life’s unique purpose
  • Discover your heart’s desires and increase your capacity to fulfill them
  • Understand and transform your non-constructive patterns
  • Access lasting peace
