with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli
in “Fenn Chapel” at Beech Brook, 3737 Lander Rd, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, Ohio, OH 44124
Everyone welcome, no singing or yoga experience needed.
Join us for this deliciously nourishing evening of mystic poetry and devotional song from the Bhakti Yoga, Shakta Tantra and Sufi traditions. Feast on the inspirational songs of Lalla, the Kashmiri mystic yogini, and be nurtured by the sweet sounds of kirtan and mantra in praise of the deep feminine, the supreme power of life herself, Devi Ma, Parashakti. Enjoy Bhakti song for your delight and inspiration.
The whole evening is held within a nourishing and restful space of informal and nurturing Total Yoga Nidra, delivered in response to the spirits and needs of those attending. Yoga Nidra is the yoga of sleep. There is no need to move, simply to settle into deep comfort and open your ears to the sound of the practices. An evening of Total Yoga Nidra empowers you to refresh your vitality, boost your creativity and support your health and well being. Total Yoga Nidra introduces you to the full spectrum of yoga nidra experiences. Awaken your consciousness of sleep and dream through the tantric practice of expanded awareness for lucid living. Become alive to the source of well-being, happiness and purpose in every dimension of life.
It is the first opportunity in the Americas for men and women of all ages and all levels of yoga experience to enjoy Uma Dinsmore-Tuli PhD’s unique teachings in Total Yoga Nidra. Uma, with her husband, Nirlipta, were the first, and are still the only, people in the UK and possibly, in the world, to teach Yoga Nidra independently and in a way that compares the different styles and approaches yoga nidra. Total Yoga Nidra is also unique because it encourages and promotes creative, hybrid yoga nidra: combining the best elements of any style of Yoga Nidra.
When you arrive you’ll be invited to lay down and rest in welcome comfort and warmth for twenty minutes before the beginning of the songs, poems, mantra and kirtan. At the end of the evening there will be a short Total Yoga Nidra ‘coda’, a time to integrate and settle with all that has been shared. There will also be tasty treats to enjoy at the end of the evening. Come prepared to be enchanted and nourished in heart, body and soul by these voices from the heart.
Uma co-founded the Yoga Nidra Network in 2011 which liberates and expands the understandings of Yoga Nidra. www.yoganidranetwork.org
“Yoga Nidra is a great treasure, a potent meditative resource for healing, insight, and empowerment. It's a state of consciousness in which we are invited to re-encounter the essential truth of who we really are. Yoga Nidra provides us with the opportunity to experience deep freedom.“
