Delivered at Viveka Gardens Yoga Farm, West Leigh, Mid Devon for a sankalpa workshop at midsummer. We’d discussed ideas of being full and at the peak, like the sun, or not. And the turning to the second half of the year, the alternation of fullness and giving endlessly, like the sun, and of turning inwards and resting in the winter. Before starting, a conundrum – a puzzle you are turning over and over in your head like a rubik cube – may suggest itself. Hold it lightly to present to your heart space in the nidra.
The blackbird singing full throat will either be a distraction or a delight. He was the self-proclaimed king of the orchard, kitchen garden and yard this spring and summer though the birds of other feather took no notice and sang full-heartedly too!
