Shivaratri - Celebration of Consciousness

Shiva represents Pure Consciousness - the infinite Being (Mind if you like) from with, and within the entire manifest universe (that includes you, me and everything else) appears to arise and then returns.
During our evening together we will practice yoga nidra (deep relaxation using the sound of the gong) and we will chant the Gayatri Mantra in the presence of the Fire Element.

The Power of Sound
Chudleigh Knighton, Devon

Sunday 26th July
7.30am - 2.30pm
Yoga, Nature and Meditation
Natures Retreat Centre, Butleigh
During the day we will spend an hour or so of the early morning (weather dependant) in a wildflower meadow surrounded by butterflies, and many other insects, as they awaken to the warmth of the sun. We will experience the natural calming of the mind and emotions that arises when we take time to observe and be present with other living things in their environment.

On returning to the centre the rest of the day will include asana (physical postures), pranayama (breathing practices), yoga nidra (deep relaxation) and mantra (chanting practices that can lead to the meditative states).


Limited to 10 places. Cost  £35-00 per person, please bring vegetarian lunch to share. To confirm your place or for further information please do not hesitate to get in touch.
