Yoga Event: Sound Meditation and Gong Bath – Evolve, South Kensinton

Sound meditation with gong and tibetan singing bowls

sound meditation south kensington

Experience the universal sound of the gong and Tibetan singing bowls. Allow the sounds to take you into a state of peaceful meditation and let it touch you deeply at a cellular level. Let go of any expectations and experience total relaxation and connection with the Sounds of the Universe.

  • Strengthens self-confidence, creativity and motivation
  • Stress reduction through deep relaxation and endorphin release
  • Promotes deeper sleep
  • Activates self-healing mechanisms within the body

The gentle and harmonious sounds of gong and Tibetan singing bowls are absorbed through the ear and quickly lead to deep, long lasting relaxation. The rhythmic sound vibrations are transmitted to the body. Sound massage creates an atmosphere of safety and security, in which it is possible to let go of stress, anxiety, worry. In this soothing atmosphere, we can again come in contact with our needs, our “inner wisdom”.

When: every 1st Friday of the month | 7 – 8 pm

Price: £15 | per person

Dominika has played Gongs and Tibetan singing bowls for many years, being inspired by Gong master Don Conreaux. It is her passion to promote harmony and unity using natural mandala.

Expand your voice, awaken the inner divine.
Sunday 6th November / 14:00 – 17:00

With Satkirin Khalsa     

 

 

This powerful kriya can raise the consciousness from zero to infinity in pretty quick order. Known as the ‘Mahan Dhiaan’, or the supreme meditation, this kriya was given by Guru Arjan Dev ji in the late 1600s to train sacred musicians to bring forth a deeply transformative and healing sound current.
We will chant this together for a good long stretch – aim for 62 minutes in the group will bolster our ability. COVERING 3 OCTIVES  Rise up up up into the heights of your meditation.

 

– Improves voice

– Brings rhythm and harmony to your communication

– Promotes weight loss by balancing the glandular system

– Harmonises you attitude to face current life challenges 

 

When I asked Yogi Bhajan how to improve my voice and mastery of Raga, he said to do this Kriya.  Each participant may record the meditation to use at home. An ancient meditation done in concentric circles for mastery of your sound current.

Satkirin trained directly with Yogi Bhajan studying with him since June 1970. Residing in Los Angeles she received direct guidance on Mantra and Shabd.
One of the founders of Guru Ram Das Ashram Los Angeles Yogi Bhajan sent her to  New York City to develop the community and establish a Guru Ram Das Gurdwara.

Taurus Full Moon Meditation and Gong Bath – 10th November

  

Taurus Full Moon Meditation & Gong Bath with Simon  
Thursday 10th November / 19:45 – 21:15
£13; no concessions 

 

Programme: 1. Brief reading on the Taurus Full Moon (effect of Moon phase) 2. Pranayama 3. Kundalini Yoga warm up kriya 4. Kundalini Yoga meditation (usually 22min) 5. 30min Gong Bath  

 

 

The Full Moon in Taurus happens on 10 November at 20:16 in London. Taurus in an earth sign and is associated with Venus. Taurus loves luxury. I call it the sign of cashmere. The sense that is the strongest with Taurus is the sense of touch. Soft fabrics are a must for the sensuous Taurus. They love a good meal, the best quality wine and long, gentle talks with loves ones.

 

You are lucky if you have a strong Taurus in your life. They will always be there for you. Since their sense of touch is favored, massage is a natural for the Taurus Full Moon. The opposing Sun is in passionate Scorpio, so these are the signs of the body senses. If one food can describe Taurus, it’s Chocolate. But only the best chocolate, please. This Full Moon chart has a Taurus ease to it.

 

The only planets involving the Full Moon are the necessary Sun and Moon. There isn’t a crowd or congestion around the Full Moon. Plus, notice the sweet Grand Trine between Pluto at the top, Jupiter and Mars. A big part of astrology is reading the geometry between the planets. The geometric pattern is very pleasing for this Taurus Full Moon. Easy and calm comes to mind. The ideal Taurus Full Moon meditation will be comforting and relaxing.

Events: Workshop – “October 2011, Rock Your Heart, Yoga Dance and Meditation”

As we are moving into the new year – the new times for all of us, we will need an ultimate reboot of our systems and most importantly hearts!

This heart series are for colder autumn months when we need a bit more extra love and nourishment.

The emphasis will be on the 3rd (Sun energy), 4th (Love chakra) and 5th (Personal potential) chakras. Because 4th chakra sits between the 3rd and 5th and closely linked with their vibration, we will develop and balance this relationship.

Our goal is to do yoga, sing, dance and meditate to fully open our potential and empower ourselves for the next year of 2012, a year of big changes and transition. We need to be ready for the shift, shift towards living from the heart, not the mind.

If we don’t live from the heart from this moment onwards we will misunderstand the times and feel lost, angry and depressed.

Yogi Bhajan on Cold Depression: http://www.spiritvoyage.com/blog/index.php/yogi-bhajans-2012-predictions-kundalini-yoga-and-cold-depression/

Highlights of the program:

Boost immune system

Clear karma and heart’s wounds

Protect and strengthen aura

Meditate to attract more love

Shake out fears and worries

Heal your heart (we are all wounded in one way or another)

Plus heart-pounding and heart opening music and mantras that will take you along the path of love and self-appreciation, as well as others.

Events: Yoga in the Park – “Kensington Palace Gardens”

If you go down to the park this weekend, you’ll be sure of a big surprise! For every yogi will be practicing outside in the park with yoga teacher Liz. It’s not often we Londoners get to experience the joy of practicing yoga outside but it is a wonderful thing to do. And this way, you won’t feel silly doing it all by yourself. Curious passer-bys may stare but you can share the attention with the group!

Starting Saturday, May 14th, I will be teaching yoga every week on the lawn of Kensington Palace Gardens. There is nothing like practicing outside to reconnect with the earth and oneself, and practicing in a group to benefit the lives of others both extends the connection from the earth to all beings, and from the mat into daily life.
