October Meditation Evening, Thursday 4th October 7.15-8.30pm at Sedgwick Park House, Horsham.

 

This month's meditation will be on the theme ‘I am at home. Fear is the stranger here.’

 

Fear is essential when it comes to our basic safety. But if we let fear have too much of our headspace we live half-lives. Fear can pin us to the ground when we know we need to keep moving forward, it can strangle us when there are words that need to be said.

 

But it doesn’t have to be that way. Fear can be a friend, the nervous kind who can list a hundred reasons why not to do everything. But if you speak kindly to her, she might just come around. Join me for meditations to go past the loud and sometimes hysterical voice of fear to find the more authentic wisdom beneath.

Yoga and Meditation Workshop on the Celtic Goddess Morrigan

Saturday 20th October 10am-1pm at Sedgwick Park House, Horsham.

 

- Wisdom, intuition, strength and dignity are all aspects of this ancient goddess. Her name means ‘great queen’ and she instils fear into the those who cross her. She is symbolically represented a crow or raven and is the crone- the worldly woman past child-bearing years who continues to nurture all who are willing to sit around her cauldron and listen to her wisdom.

 

In this morning of yoga and meditation we’ll explore subtle adjustments to allow us to go deeper but slower in our yoga practice. We’ll explore own strength, dignity and wisdom through yoga and meditation and reflect upon the (often unseen) beauty of the wise elder.

 

We'll focus on the power of the breathe and the value in slowing down, savouring instead of gulping down our life.

£35 including refreshments.

Samhain Yoga and Meditation Evening Thursday 1st November 7.30-9pm, Sedgwick Park House, Horsham

 

Samhain is a pagan festival (native to the UK) which honours our heritage and ancestors. It’s believed this is the time of year when the veils between the worlds are at their thinnest and we are closest to those who have passed on before us.

 

In this evening session we’ll practice warming and nurturing yoga, focused on boosting the immune system and keeping our spirits high at this dark time of year. We’ll also practice a meditation to heighten our intuitive abilities and a simple ritual to honour our ancestory and consider our influcene on the generations to come.

 

£15 for the evening.

Yoga and Meditation Workshop on the Goddess Shekinah Saturday 17th November 10am-1pm, Sedgwick Park House, Horsham

 

Shekinah means ‘dwelling’ or ‘settling’ in Hebrew. This potent goddess from the Jewish faith is believed by many to represent the feminine attributes of the presence of God.

 

She dwells in the gap of understanding between God and woman/man (rather like the holy spirit in Christianity) and is the manifestation of a loving maternal entity, ready to defend her people. Shekhinah represents compassion in its purest form. Let yourself be held in this infinitely warm, welcoming and joyful energy.

 

Our yoga practice will be supported and playful, heart opening and focused on allowing ourselves to receive. We will focus on removing the conscious and unconscious blocks we might have to allowing good in to our life and meditate on settling into the place where we know we are loved and learn to accept it.

 

£35 for the morning including refreshments. To book your place please pay here...
