Satsang is a way for yogis and yoginis to come together and deepen their sadhana (spiritual practice)…the evening can include chanting, meditation practice, readings, discussion, screenings, special guests… simply coming together as a community of like-minded individuals!
This month the theme is BEES!
Bee the Change
The Future of the Human race is intrinsically linked with that of the Honey Bee. Since 2006, billions of bees worldwide have died from a disease, known as Colony Collapse Disorder. There are several theories for this disaster and they all stem from the environmental impact of Human farming methods. Bees play a vital role in pollinating many of the plants that produce the foods that we eat, fruits and vegetables – including apples, oranges, strawberries, onions and carrots – they pollinate nuts, sunflowers and oil-seed rape. Coffee, soya beans, clovers and even cotton are all dependent on honeybee pollination to increase yields. The contribution to the global economy of bee pollination is estimated at £26 billion.
On Sunday we’ll watch part of a film that explains what is happening: http://www.vimeo.com/16326005
We will also be handing out some seeds for flowers that bees find particularly yummy. Plant them in pots or in your gardens to turn London into one giant bee sweet shop.
