I am very happy to be offering a course of combined Yoga & Sound work called “Into the Present!” with the wonderful Lucy E.M. Hunter. Tickets are available on Eventbrite here:
Into The Present!
A Yoga & Sound experience
This year offers unprecedented opportunity to let go of old patterns of conditioning to reboot and refresh, leaving behind what is no longer serving us, to bring ourselves up to date and fully Into The Present.
These 8 sessions of sound healing are designed to take us, one energy centre or chakra at a time, on a journey of discovery.
Where are we holding back?
Where can we create more joy?
What insights are waiting to be revealed to us in this special space of sound Healing?
At the start of each session with the help of some simple yoga poses we will locate each centre, one per session. Then taking time to set our intention and making ourselves comfortable we can allow the sound of gongs, singing bowls and various percussion to find the way to where it is needed, gently loosening impacted energy, creating space and lightness and a sense of freedom so we return to the world more fully present to ourselves.
By doing this course over 8 fortnightly sessions (with the final one early 2019) we are giving ourselves time to unfold gently in an easy and joyful way with compassion for our-selves.
For this reason we recommend you sign up for the full course, although bookings for individual sessions will be accepted if space is available.
All our sessions will happen on a Sunday afternoon 3-6pm
We will run our first Base Centre session twice on 19th & 26th of August. This gives you a chance to see what you are letting yourself in for!
The fortnightly sessions will then run from 23rd September – 6th December 2018 with a break before our last session, which will be held on January 13th 2019
19th & 26th of August: Base Chakra
Also known as the root, represents our relationship with the physical world. Where we find a sense of safety and belonging of being ‘in the right soil’.
What sustains me in my Life?
23rd September: Sacral Chakra
The Sacral Chakra is the seat of joy, creativity and enthusiasm, the playful energy of the child. When in balance we are connected to our “gut feeling” and a sense of flow with ourselves.
What brings me joy?
7th October: Solar Plexus Chakra
Our self-worth and feeling of personal power stem from a balanced third Chakra. Linked to the element of fire, we can experience the burning flame of confidence. We are aware and sure of our place in the world and can confidently stand by our convictions.
Where do I feel in my power?
21st October: Heart Chakra
The Heart Chakra is where our higher, more spiritual chakras meet the lower, more physical ones and ensure that we meet the world with ‘the right tone’. True compassion and bringing our will into the world without attachment to desires and needs come from a balanced fourth Chakra.
How do I touch the world and how does the world touch me?
4th November: Throat Chakra
The Throat Chakra is the seat of communication, speaking and hearing the truth, not filtered through the need of approval of others. A balanced throat Chakra lets us experience the joy of fearlessly taking responsibility for our truth.
Can I speak the truth appropiately at all times?
18th November: Third Eye Chakra
The Third Eye Chakra is the centre of vision – into ourselves and out beyond ourselves. It’s the point where conscious and unconscious mind meet and where we can see the world as it is, without judgment. If functioning well, we feel inspired and connect to all possibilities.
Where do I feel fully open and inspired?
2nd December: Crown Chakra
The Crown Chakra is where the force of life enters our body, unlimited and free flowing, like our thoughts. It connects us with our spirituality and our higher self. Personal development and feelings of total peace and bliss are linked to a balanced seventh Chakra.
Where do I feel my bliss?
13th January 2019: Reboot into the New Year – Medulla Oblongata
At the base of the skull this lesser known Chakra brings possibilities to dissolve any last vestiges of unwanted conditioning to start 2019 afresh.
What would your like to leave behind?
What would you like to draw towards you in 2019?
