The world grows cold
The year is old
And what is it we‘re learning?
A journey of experience and learning over 6 weeks to embrace the potent invitation of the dark days – and cultivate the light within.
Thursdays 7-8.30pm ( Irish Time)
In our culture there is fear of the dark. Darkness represents the unknown. We shy away from the vast blackness of the forests, the open lands and cluster in the luminous comfort of cities.
As the dark comes ever close around us – this winter, in particular, may invoke apprehensive appearing as a moment of collective peril – infused as we are now through the pervasive discourse of fear, of sickness or disease.
The uncertainty of these times lends itself to much – chaos, confusion and contraction.
What if we can allow ourselves to fully lean into this period of darkness as a most fecund invitation to depth, growth and self awareness?
November 27th – December 17th
In the Irish Celtic Calendar, the new year begins in the darkness of Samhain. This is a time aligned with feminine inner-qualities of receptivity, of divination, of reflection and a gathering potency. Just as the seed begins deep in the earth and the baby in the wombs darkness, ideas, plans and projects – even a new world need time to gestate and grow : in the dark.
On a collective level, our humanity is also now in a time of massive transition – we are moving from a paradigm of separation where economic, political, social and psychological systems of perception and their underlying philosophical foundations are being swept aside.
There is an opportunity in this time to move towards co-creation and connection rather than duality and conflict.
Practicing nourishing kriyas and meditations for heart, mind, body and soul – we can allow our bodies to let go of cumulative stress of the past year and renew our nervous systems. Over 40 days of this commitment you can gain the full benefit of a daily meditation practice.
Jouney Into the Dark
A four week course to navigate the weeks approaching winter solstice with purpose & grace allowing space and time to deepen our awareness and our relationship with our enduring soul essence through yoga, meditation, prayer and reflection. A journey of transformation, nourishment and healing.
We have this opportunity to reflect on our choices and priorities.
We seek to kindle the light and joy within us,
and be attentive to that which wishes to be born.
Part 2 : Wisdom of the Stones
In the final weeks of this journey we will take our themes from the great stone constructions, reflecting on the insights and wisdom encoded in the ancient temple of the Irish landscape: Brú na Bóinne, New Grange – temple of the Boyne.
Our Yogic journey will be informed by the themes of :
Resilience, Endurance & Time Tested Truth.
Dropping fear, anger and stress we can come to soulful harmony to dwell in our core essence- that which cannot be destroyed, that which never dies.
