Meditation Sessions at Sedgwick Park House
Thursday 8th February 7.15-8.30pm
‘My holiness is my salvation.’ Is the line from A Course In Miracles we'll be focused on in this meditation session.
This speaks to the decision we must make to recognise our true nature. It is a coming home to the recognition that holiness resides within us, that there is nothing to get or gain in this world, that deep down our every yearning and ambition is an attempt to connect with this holiness.

Green Tara Yoga and Meditation Workshop
Sedgwick Park House, Horsham
Saturday 27th January 2018 10am-1pm
Throughout 2018 I will be offering workshops on the energies of women in many of the world’s religions and cultural traditions. From Buddhism’s Green Tara to Christianity’s Mother Mary, Celtic wise women to the Pagan triple goddess, there is much wisdom in the divine feminine. Each workshop will include some learning about the goddess or female deity and a themed yoga practice and meditations to connect with the divine feminine.
In January we’ll delve into the energy of Buddhism’s Green Tara. Tara, in Sanskrit means ‘star’, also ‘she who brings for the life’. Green Tara is known as the great protector, both physically and spiritually. One of her many attributes is that she has chosen a female form to do her work in the world because of her willingness to uplift women and overcome the difficulties (as well as enjoy the delights) of living as a woman. In practical and applicable terms Green Tara is a guide, a wise teacher, a compassionate but straightforward mentor, an example of womanhood that is positive, empowered and active in her willingness to uplift all beings.
In this workshop we’ll discuss Buddhism’s stories of Green Tara, practice some of her mantras and meditate on the energies of protection in our own lives as well as our own willingness (or lack of) to be a ‘star’ ourselves. Our yoga asana practice will be empowering and we’ll entwine mantra, mudras with the postures. You needn’t have any prior knowledge of this subject to attend but some yoga experience would be beneficial.
The cost of the session is £35 which includes refreshments during the break. To book your place please go to www.alisonstoker.co.uk and pay online.
