You are welcome to join us in this circle of connection.
Through our time together you are invited to experience: Total Yoga Nidra, a practice of rest and profound nourishment to welcome us home to ourselves; and intuitive movement that centre around deep listening to your own body, honouring your source power, yoni shakti, through flowing gentle yoga asana and Rhythms of Life freedom dance. We will also explore together meditation through creation, making art that reflects our inner landscape; as well as being time for Kirtan, the song of the soul, music as medicine.
All practices are an invitation for you to dive into a meditative state of communion with your own heart, the hearth of your being. Kindling the heart fire of your relationship to yourself in each moment.
This offering will be held in the nourishing woodland venue at Wasing Estate in Berkshire, near Reading. This is the site of Medicine festival and many other holistic gatherings. Beautiful prayers and connections have been formed on the land at Wasing for over ten years, and most people who visit return time and time again to rest in the welcome of the earth, trees and lakes. There is an ancient Yew tree to pay a visit to, and the opportunity to enjoy a wild swim in the private woodland lake
We will provide a simple vegan gluten-free lunch for us to eat together.
Please bring your own yoga mat, blanket, cushion, things to make yourself a cosy nest. Depending on the weather, some of our practice will outside in nature, please bring warm clothes. Even though energetically connected, we will observe physical social-distancing in our time together, space is limited to a small group.
