The autumn equinox, considered by indigenous cultures to be one of the most important days of the year, is soon upon us, falling this year on Monday 23rd September.
This harvest season is a chance for us to reap what we’ve sown, then cleanse, reflect, restore and refocus. As we transition into autumn, we turn our attention within and prepare for the more reflective and cooler months ahead. It’s a good time to find our own balance, and to finish up old projects or plans and plant our own seeds for changes we want to manifest in our lives. It’s also the perfect opportunity to release old habits and patterns that are no longer serving us and nourish the body and mind in preparation for winter.
To celebrate this autumn equinox, and to help you focus on and benefit from this powerful transitioning time, we will be leading a special chanting class.
The power of sound is an important healing tool and an important part of Kundalini yoga, which we will use at this time to raise our own vibrations.
We will be chanting 111times Bahota Karam - we will practice this mantra to awaken the life forces of our radiance and prosperity during the autumn and winter months.
Mantra means “mental liberation”. This sound, or combination of sounds, sets the mind free from its worldly conditioning and limitations, though we can chant in any language, anything that our heart desires. Through chanting mantras, we are harnessing the power of not only our breath but also our own vocal resonance.
The workshop will also end with a beautiful meditative gong bath. The gong is the most sublime instrument of the yogi. It is a musical instrument, a healing tool for the nervous system and a cauldron in which you can create alchemical blends of qualities that open and develop the Inner Self. The sound of the gong creates deep relaxation, releases you from the torrent of thoughts and stimulates the glandular system to a higher level of functioning.
We look forward to sharing these practices with you and harnessing the power of the autumn equinox, the power of the harvest full moon and the healing power of sound.
Chanting will be with Seva Bhagti Kaur supported by Elizabeth Major.
