About The Event
Samhain, pronounced "sow wain", an ancient pagan celebration honouring the end of Summer. It is said to be the time when the veil between worlds thins, traditonally ancestors were remembered and honoured but it is also an auspicious time to recognise the path we as human beings each tread, age after age.
This bespoke retreat evening will take place in a rural roundhouse on the edge of the forest. As the sun sets and the moon rises, her luminescent light will enter through a mercurial sky light adding her radiance to the soft glow of a candle lit practice. The light of a yang yoga (vinyasa flow) unfolding through creative sequences will rise to a peak pose before ebbing and dissolving into yin like surrender - coming low towards the ground. Here we linger in passive stretches allowing sensations to flow and stresses to soak into yin like tissues - breath steadies in delight of the warmth from a log burning stove.
A guided meditation will unravel the details of ancient lore and the deeper meaning of Samhain.
The evening is rounded with yoga nidra (yogic sleep) accompanied by the gentle sounds of melodious chimes and the hauntingly beautiful resonance of the hand pan drum.
*Refreshments and snacks will be available to enjoy afterwards around an outdoor fire (weather permitting)*
Each participant can opt to receive hands assists during practice. And a gorgeous themed goody bag accompanies you home.
