A liminal space is the time between the 'what was' and the 'next.' It is a place of transition, waiting, and not knowing. Liminal space is where all transformation takes place, if we learn to wait and let it form us. -Author and theologian Richard Rohr
Join us on the weekend of the first new moon of 2019, as we rest in the liminal space that exists just after the new year; not quite in the past, not quite in the future.
During the first week of the new year, there’s a little in-between moment that we don’t always take the time to observe – like the turning of the breath at the bottom of the exhale – a space to pause and be present. New Year can be a time of setting ourselves too many resolutions and too many expectations, too fast. At the time of the new moon we should, by nature, take rest and withdraw; nourish our bodies and prepare for uprising energy of the full moon.
Through gentle yoga practices incorporating movement, voice, deep rest, and the deeply healing benefit of crystal bowl sonic vibrations, we invite you to rest here - in this liminal space - on the dark moon. Resist the urge to set goals and instead focus on releasing that which no longer serves; find yourself fully in the present to be able to make heartfelt intentions for the year ahead. We’ll finish the session together with some light snacks and warming teas, before you head back out into the world, and into the new year.
Please note that regrettably this workshop is not suitable for women in their first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
For this Yoga + Sound event, Brighitta will be working with her dear friend Claire Horton. A yoga practitioner of 15 years, Claire initially trained in Ashtanga and Vinyasa Yoga, continuing to study further with Ryan Spielman and David Swenson. As her practice evolved, Claire developed an interest in yoga for women's wellbeing, and she furthered her studies with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli (Author of Yoni Shakti) in Womb Yoga and Well Woman Yoga Therapy. The ancient scriptures and Vedic texts have always held a special significance and source of inspiration to Claire, who travels regularly to South East Asia to immerse herself in history, storytelling, myth and ritual.
