Buddha Enlightenment

Loving Kindness Yoga Workshop

20th May 2017 at 2.30 – 5pm


 

This sadhana explores the legend of Buddha's Birth, Deva Tara and the teachings of Buddhism. We all hold the Buddha Nature within, we must only set this free (blue)

 

Buddhism derives from the word budhi, meaning to awaken. Buddhism is a way of life that opens the heart and soul to unconditional love, peace and joy.

In a world of constant change and impermanence, happiness and peace truly arise from within. Slowly, like a candle flame or a mountain, the most solid things evolve; they have no permanent essence. Similarly, our inner experience of mind and emotions are in constant fluctuation. Buddhism teaches that awareness is the only permanent aspect of life; the awareness that holds the space for the flow of life to pass through.

 

Buddha enlightenment arises when we open into this freedom space of awareness; an inner sky of peace that opens spontaneously and effortlessly; undisturbed and non-reactive to the world around us. Buddha Nature is the essence of life; inherently peaceful, joyful and compassionate.

 

Understanding that all beings are experiencing the same wonderful, yet turbulent motion of life, there is deep love and compassion for all of humanity. All of life becomes an offering of devotion and compassion; your heart and soul live forever free.

 

Through deep sadhana arises deep peace; from deep peace lifts the light of wisdom; from wisdom expands sweet love and compassion. We all hold the Buddha Nature within, we must only set this free.

 

'Buddha Enlightenment' will explore the legend of Buddha's birth and the teachings of Buddhism. We will flow through a series of creative, heart-expanding namaskars, back bending sequences, partner yoga and inversions. You will also experience a nourishing yin flow, inspired by the story of Green Tara, the mother of all Buddhas, and a closing Buddhist maitre meditation.

 

This soulful, yet dynamic yoga practice shares joy of movement, compassion of the heart and the Buddha Nature within. This experience is enhanced by the serene ambiance of the Tree Room, fairy lights and aromatic oils.

 

£30 per yogi


Limited spaces available.
