Yoga Nidra Labyrinth

05/10/2017
High above San Francisco bay, walking this beautiful labyrinth with our hearts open, we entered a liminal space: a place where deep time settles us into the source of being. Here in the centre of the labyrinth, we rest and pause and invite what is there simply to be. And as we walk outwards in the spirals from the core to the periphery we welcome in again the engagement with the outside world. The Landsend Labyrinth walk echoes the Total Yoga Nidra Journeys I have been sharing on the Yoga Nidra Foundation course in this beautiful city

Everything is New For Me

Do you ever have that feeling, as you surface from the deep rest of yoga nidra, that the world has been washed clean? That all the colours are brighter and more vivid, that you are more able to appreciate the marvel of being alive? This is one of the many reasons I love to practice and share yoga nidra - I see the relief and delight in people's faces when they see the world has been washed clean whilst they rested. . . or at least, we feel more empowered to do our small bit of what's needed in the world right now.

Greetings! As many of you may know, for the last several months I have been preparing and planning my very first teaching pilgrimage to North America. To say the least, it's been a pure delight to meet and build relationships with the amazing yoga community there. They have welcomed me and the teachings with open arms - and the invitations to keep spreading these timeless messages continue to expand! Jai Ma!

Island Cuckoo  calls before four, to watch colours pouring back, As tides of light awaken brightness in this Atlantic fragment of the Burren. Voice of Crow  upon the ruined gable of this tiny temple sings still after eleven.  Between these two  birds' calls  stretch eighteen bright long hours of midsummer day.

Prayers from a liminal place: At the edge  of the world, may we see sky in water; may we feel space in air; and may there be clouds on the sand  to surprise us. Where worlds meet in openness, May we be free  from certainty.  Anything  is possible here. HARI OM

We dreamt that She swam in the rivers of honey that flow through the lands of these bodies of love. We felt how She danced in the streams and the pools, of the honey that sweetens these places of love; and all of the dance that She did in the streams, and all of the rivers that run to our hearts,  flow deep from the Source to a great sea of sweetness,  to an ocean of honey that rocks in our hearts. Come now and float on the heart ocean’s sweetness. Come now and swim in the waves from the source.
