Learning Into Abundant Love
With Marjon & Dorothea
Sunday 5th Dec 3-5pm 

Join us for this Solar Eclipse Workshop in which we will immerse in yoga, mantra, and meditation to activate an abundance of love for self that spills out to others.

 

What to expect:

Alongside the auspicious energy of the Solar Eclipse, we will invoke the presence of Lakshmi through breathe, mantra, and movement. Lakshmi is the Hindu & Tantric Goddess of auspicious energy who represents wealth, fertility, abundance, self-love, and self-acceptance. We will call upon her presence to guide our journey of movement and sound healing.

In our gentle, calming asana practice, you can expect to feel spaciousness through the chest and side body as we rest down to the Earth and ease ourselves in the Divine love that exists both within and around us.

The sound of singing bowls, gong and other healing instruments will guide us on our journey creating a sense of deep relaxation, harmony, and bliss.

Sound Bath & Guide Meditation 
Sunday19th Dec 7pm

Sound is the gateway to the soul, when we sit, and listen, and begin to hear the silence between sounds, we are transported to other worlds, to the depth of our soul.

Come join us for this Sound Bath and Guided Meditation that falls on the Gemini Full Moon. I’ll gently guide you into a relaxed state through breath, bring you into the present, followed by a chant to quiet your mind, and a guided meditation to melt you deeper into the experience.

From there we’ll immerse in the vibrations of a sound bath, which will create space for deep relaxation and the release of tension, stress, and stagnant or trapped emotions.

From this state of being the mind, body, emotions, and spirit will have the opportunity to soothe, re-calibrate, and restore inner harmony.

 

Proven Benefits of Sound Therapy:

  •  Reduces stress and anxiety

  • Improve immune and nervous system health

  • Improves sleep and relaxation

  • Boosts your mental, emotional and energetic state of being

  • Helps release emotional tension

  • Helps you maintaining a healthy spiritual and self-care practice

 

Gemini Full Moon

What does this mean? Full moons are about letting go, and completing cycles. This full moon will emphasise knowledge, information, perception and how we communicate who we are and what we want to be in the world.

Come melt away what no longer serves as we journey into the heart and voice.

ANANDA MEANING

BLISS/DIVINE JOY

In yoga philosophy it is said that God is Sat-Chit-Ananda (existence consciousness bliss). Paramhansa Yogananada adds that Ananda is different from the temporary happiness that comes from sense pleasures such as eating, listening to music, and seeing beautiful things. It is also not a monotonous joy that is always the same. Ananda refers to a joy that "Changes and dances itself in many ways to enthral your mind and keep your attention occupied and interested forever"
