The Four Desires with Tracee Stanley

  • Hummingbird Lodge 9416 Miller Creek Road Missoula, MT 59803 USA (map)

Connect with Purpose and Diminish the Obstacles That Stand in Your Way of Living to Your Fullest Potential.

Are you living to your fullest potential? Many times in life we may feel like a rudderless ship: aimless, stuck, or having so many projects that our energy is dispersed and nothing ever gets accomplished. At other times, we just don't know what our purpose is, and if we do have a sense of our dharma, it can be hard to actualize it with all the other responsibilities that we have in life.

This workshop offers a chance to journey into the lotus of the heart, uncover our heart's deepest desire, and align with our soul’s unique purpose. Sourced from the teachings in Rod Stryker’s book, The Four Desires, we access the deepest parts of ourselves through yoga, meditation, visualization, deep relaxation, and writing exercises. During this workshop, you can gain tools to activate willpower, manifest intentions, and release negative habits.

Through this process of self-study and deep listening, we come into effortless alignment with who we truly are meant to be and access the doorway to our infinite potential. Other goals of the workshop include the following:

  • Develop a personal practice to reduce lethargy, procrastination, and other negative habits
  • Learn deep relaxation techniques to enhance rejuvenation, memory, and clarity
  • Access meditations to cultivate intuition and increase shakti (empowerment)
  • Uncover and diminish the shadow energy that keeps you from achieving goals

40 day follow-up online Dharma Momentum session
Facebook support group.
Recorded practices from the workshop.

About Tracee:


I have been studying Yoga and Tantra since 1995. My introduction to yoga was through the practice of Kundalini Yoga where I was fortunate enough to practice with Yogi Bhajan on several of his visits to Yoga West in Los Angeles. Being in the presence of this great teacher gave me a glimpse into the true power of Yoga. Soon after I was introduced to the practice of Hatha yoga and became passionate about sharing how yoga had changed my life with anyone who would listen. At the time I was a high level executive in the film industry and my practice provided the balance, clarity and perspective that I needed to stay calm in the midst of chaos. After reading a translation of the Yoga Sutra's, I went on a quest for a teacher who could impart the deeper teachings and the promise of Yoga. It was then that I met my teacher Yogarupa Rod Strykerand was initiated into the lineage of Sri Vidya. 

Since 2001 the focus of my teaching has been empowerment, sankalpa (intention), self-mastery and healing. The teachings are sourced from my many years of practice with Yogarupa, study with Gary Kraftsow and my personal journey and study. As a ParaYoga® Level I Certified Teacher and a Certified Four Desires Trainer I utilize the unique practices of the  ParaYoga® and the Himalayan traditions to guide students towards the door of awakening to their true nature, creating positive momentum and accelerating the trajectory towards fulfilling their destiny for an empowered life that is full of purpose and joy. I enjoy sharing the profound practices of Yoga Nidra, Meditation and Self-Inquiry informed by wisely sequenced asana, mantra and kriya practices to create a fertile environment and safe container for transformation and growth. 

It is my greatest honor to be on the faculty of Esalen Institute and to teach at festivals like Wanderlust, Symbiosis, Lightning in a Bottle and Bali Spirit Festival. I love leading teacher trainings, retreats and holding space for you to remember your radiance and power!
