Dark/New Moon Yoga & Sound Healing
A purge, A deep letting go, A closure, A renewal, A new beginning.
This session will begin in complete darkness. We will move from darkness towards the light.
Since ancient times our ancestors would look to the sky and the stars for answers to life’s many questions. One of the traditions was to look to the moon and its cycles as a reflection of what was happening in our own inner and outer worlds. We have come to learn that the moon not only effects the tides, but all bodies of water including the approximate 75% of water in our own bodies. In astrology, the moon is ruled by water and represents the emotional body. It moves like waves representing the emotional highs and lows of life with each part of every moon cycle being an important part of the process.
The New moon and the few days of darkness leading up to the new moon which we refer to as the dark moon is a time to go within, recharge and reset our mind, body and spirit. Its a time of rest, a gap, a pause before the next cycle begins. This is the perfect time to find your inner silence, shift from movement to letting go, receiving and slow down before the birth of something new, before that next moment of creation. This time signifies a moment to get in touch with our higher selves, reawaken our deepest desires and unlock the wisdom of our souls. This is the right time to connect with source, rejuvenate and allow pure magic to enfold.
In this session we will explore the closing of one cycle (Dark Moon) and beginning of the next (New Moon). Join us for this unique evening of meditation in motion, vocal liberation, sound healing, music, guided hypnotic visualisation, Reiki of sound, deep inner listening, silence, connection and imagination as we move through the dark side of the moon towards the lightness of the new moon and a new beginning.
In the process of renewal we will first embrace our own inner darkness and shadow selves and then move towards self healing, love, light and renewal. Like a phoenix through a flame, a caterpiller to a butterfly, this evening gives us the opportunity to emerge, change, grow, transform and flow more deeply towards the essence of who we truely are while setting intentions for what we want to create in our lives.
