We are conditioned so much to identify exclusively with our body and mind, and yet we wonder at times why we feel limited. We are also buffeted by the stresses and problems of modern day living. As a result of both, we often experience restlessness, frustration and unease. Yet periodically we can also hear or sense an inner calling, which reminds us that our sense of self is innately more spacious; naturally and easefully connected to the Whole of Life around us. This natural spaciousness allows the heart to breathe more easily, and the mind to feel more expansive.
This seminar will share simple practices that can expand our inner horizons and put us in touch with deeper levels of our embodied self. They will be accessible practices that you can continue in your own home and daily life. They are designed to remind us of That inner source which is always present through all the changing vicissitudes of life.
The day will include guided practices of asana, pranayama, bandha, meditation and yoga nidra, skillfully integrated to open your inner eyes to the deeper mystery of who you are. Open to all levels of experience, all that is required is an enquiring mind and openness of heart.
