1. Poem: Loving Lughansa Dark Moon Greetings from Ireland
I dreamt that you swam in the rivers of honey that flow through the lands of this body of love.
I felt how you danced in the streams and the pools
of the honey that sweetens these places of love;
and all of the dance that you did in the streams, and all of the rivers that run to my heart,
flowed deep from the source to a great sea of sweetness,
to an ocean of honey that rocked in my heart.
Come now and float on the heart ocean’s sweetness.
Come now and swim in the waves from the source.
Bring all of your dance, through the streams of love’s body,
and rest with the taste
of sweet honey in the heart.These verses are excerpted from a longer poem on Uma’s Patreon page.

2. Greeting from Uma Dinsmore-Tuli PhD, co-founder of the Yoga Nidra Network

Jai Mā!

Dear Nidristas,

Loving Blessings to all from the waters of the West of Ireland.  I am here in the Burren sharing a special Creativity and Dream Yoga Nidra retreat –  integrating yoga nidra with dream and creativity practices, just as we shall be doing for our friends in London in December and also in Kerala in February. Under the cloudy skies here we are cultivating the inner warmth of an inside sunshine and giving thanks to the power of restful being that is yoga nidrā.  Now more than ever is the time to be reconnecting to the wisdom that we receive in restfulness, so I invite you to consider taking a pause and joining myself and Nirlipta on my return from Ireland when we shall be holding a space for rest in Stroud in September – it will be restorative and nourishing for all – to save your space please book now. The studio is a blessed sanctuary and there is only for for 14 people.


Join us in the most welcoming spaces for yoga nidrā this autumn and winter – We are delighted to be bringing the Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training plus Immersion to our friends in London!  ALL who would like to join us in person at the Portico Gallery in December are welcome, and then you will complete the course online.  You can take the immersion course to prepare for this in Cheltenham in October or in London – and dive deep into the nidra ocean, emerging refreshed and inspired.

As we move into Spring we are overjoyed to be returning to the stunning Amara Valley Retreat Centre in Spain to offer a bilingual training in yoga nidra facilitation  – bookings just opened here and there’s an early bird incentive for all these marvellous courses.


This is such a joy! To hold a special place in each and every day for yoga nidra in the community of supportive practitioners in a WhatsApp group.  Everyone in the Cicle of Seers tier on my Patreon subscription platform receives a daily yoga nidra straight to your phone  . If this sounds nourishing to you, then simply sign up here.


This year we begin the full Yoni Shakti Well Woman Yoga Therapy Training online course at Hallowe’en and continue with weekly meetings until Winter Solstice  – every session begins with a deep dive into nurturing yoga nidra and all are welcome to join us in the journey through the darkness to the light that dawns as we connect with these very special yoga therapy methods to support feminine vitality and wellness – you can now book your place.


As ever, every month (yes EVERY MONTH) in Yoga Nidra Open Circles, we open our online doors and welcome in all the wonderful people who want to practice and talk about yoga nidrā from an ethical perspective of providing best practice. Each month is unique! It’s a free gathering for everyone currently enrolled on our Total Yoga Nidra Teacher and Facilitator Training courses, and all our graduates are warmly invited to attend for a small donation – along with everyone trained in multiple modes of yoga nidra methods.  The next circle is on 11 September 2023 so be sure to pop the date in your diary and we shall be glad to welcome you for a beautiful co-creative practice together and time to explore ethical issues arising from the practice of yoga nidra.


Since 1998, I’ve been sharing yoga nidra to support pregnancy and birth, and training others to support those travelling through this life stage with powerful yoga therapeutic practices. In the company of excellent inspirational midwives, we now offer this unique course as a weekly online option starting in September – every session includes yoga nidra and everyone is welcome to join us to learn to share this vital yoga therapy practices.

What treasures to share!  RESTING in the power of our reconnection to our creative wellspring, together rested humans can arise and heal our earth . . . . blessings to all.


In the service of Nidra Shakti 

and with great respect and love and warm wishes for your well being
