This ancient tantric tradition uses gentle repetitive movements to enter a state of meditative trance while promoting circulation and purification of the physical and energetic bodies. The intention is to open Anahata chakra, the energetic heart and heart-intelligence. Emphasis is placed on the inner experience and transformation.
Infused into the practices is the philosophy of the 5 elements; earth, water, air, fire and akasha (ether). They are tools for awakening the inner (psychic) senses, changing the relationship we have with ourselves and the world around us.
Mindfulness and appreciation practices come in many forms. Inspired by the Japanese ‘Koh Do” incense ceremony and Chinese tea ceremony, 3 smells and 3 tea or herbal brews will be offered for you to appreciate and experience in stillness or conversation. There is no expectation for you to say a single word but you are very welcome to express a question or a comment.
Reverence for the 5 elements will be infused into this ceremony.
Yoga nidra means yogic sleep. Unlike normal sleep the intention is to remain fully conscious as your body and mind enters a deep regenerative relaxation. In this state of trance your subconscious mind is accessed and is open to imprinting. Outdated ‘samscaras’ (mental imprints / programs) are released. New ‘sankalpas’ (seeds of intention) are planted in.
We hone our breath-tool by using it to enter and navigate the process of trance. This skill adds depth to all our meditation practices.
