Yoga Nidra and Meditation

Sunday, October 6, with John Campbell
2:00pm-4:00pm, $40

Yoga nidra is a meditation practice that dates back to the time of the Upanishads. Today, yoga nidra is widely used both as  meditation and as a therapeutic tool for PTSD, other psychological trauma and distress. Yoga nidra is an experiential practice that produces a state of deep relaxation, similar to sleep, in which we remain aware. From this place, we experience, notice and welcome the comings and goings of different aspects and layers of the self, such as physical sensations, feelings, emotions, thoughts and beliefs. In yoga nidra, we are given the opportunity to feel past all these fluctuations and rest in stillness.

Exploring Sound

Friday, December 13, with Monica Voss
1:00pm – 3:00pm, $40

Making sounds, whether deliberate or spontaneous, is a strategy the body/brain/mind uses to release stress and restore energy. In this workshop, we will practise a variety of structured and non-structured sound-making to rediscover the voice as a tool for relaxation, empowerment and self-expression.
This workshop is open to everyone.
