In this love meditation we will explore the art of seeing light in each other and within ourselves as a true path for a more thankful and happy life. Biodanza Biodanza, which means Dance of Life, is a system that integrates music, movement and authentic interactions to provide experiences of intense perception of being alive in the here-and-now. These experiences are doors to access primal emotions and help movement emerge that is the most natural expression of your true self. Conscious Cinema Free weekly event to show a positive movie to help us gain more awareness and understanding to our lives. Hugging meditation When we hug, our hearts connect and we know that we are not separate beings. Hugging with mindfulness and concentration can bring reconciliation, healing, understanding, joy and much happiness. Osho Chakra breathing This active meditation uses deep, rapid breathing and body movement to open and bring awareness, vitality and silence to each of the seven chakras or energy centres , and thus into your life. Osho Kundalini This second most famous meditation from beloved master Osho is “sister meditation” to the OSHO Dynamic. Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go. Osho Nadabrahma Nadabrahma is the humming meditation – through humming and hand movements, conflicting parts of you start falling in tune, and you bring harmony to your whole being. Samasati The purpose of this meditation is to bring awareness to the denial and fear people have regarding death. The goal of this meditation is to practice the art of witnessing rather than reacting to situations and circumstances. Choose the position: 'I will always value my life.' Appreciating my life means waking up every morning and looking into the mirror, and saying to myself, 'I am so happy to be alive!' Sudarshan Kriya Breathing is the first act of life. Within the breath is the unexplored secret of life. Sudarshan Kriya is a powerful yet simple rhythmic breathing technique that incorporates specific natural rhythms of the breath, harmonizing the body, mind and emotions. The technique eliminates stress, fatigue and negative emotions such as anger, frustration and depression. Leaving the mind calm, focused and the body energized, and completely relaxed. Vipassana Meditation We gather everyday  to meditate together. Vipassana as was taught by S. N Goenka is a still traditional meditation 2500 years old considered to be the meditation used by Gautama Buddha to become enlightened. All levels are welcome, provided you bring a respectful and loving energy to the class. If you haven’t meditated before we may introduce you to a simple meditation technique to get you started. Yoga practice Samma Karuna’s yoga is gentle, spiritual and therapeutic. Suitable both for beginners and intermediate practitioners. It incorporates the basis of Hatha Yoga with vinyasa flow and mindful Ujjayi pranayama, allowing the whole process of practice to be mindful and healing. Qi Gong 'Qi' meaning energy   'Gong' meaning work. Qi Gong is a practice of connection to our Divine essence both through movement of the body and the stillness of the mind.  It has its roots in Chinese medicine and martial arts dating back some 4,000 years.  There is believed to be a field of energy which runs through the body.  When energy stagnates we become sick. This practice helps to keep it flowing freely.  Qigong is an art which helps one to cultivate their vital life force through rhythmic breathing, slow and sometimes rapid movement, static poses which are held for a period of time and deep focus.  This practice incorporates a sequence of motions which correspond to the elements of earth, fire, air, water and ether (consciousness) from which we are made.  Through a selection of moving forms and stationary stances, deeper harmonization is reached within the body, mind and soul. Participants are encouraged to expand and develop their relationship with this practice and experience the subtler energies within and around them. Some of the many benefits of practising Qi Gong include: Increased vitality and clarity Improved health Expanded awareness Deeper connection to nature Calm mind and reduced stress Detoxification of physical, emotional and mental bodies Learn to connect with and move your own energy within and around the body for deep healing Connect with your Divine power Awakening Class As an Awakening School our main concern is to help our students to find a long-lasting happiness. As a non-dogmatic, non-religious school our aim is to help you develop your own light and wisdom; and to understand the wisdom of our own experience, rather than that which is found in books or lectures. Our wisdom events are based on experiential exercises, time for reflection, sharing, music & meditation.
