Yoga Nidra with Jude Murray accompanied towards the end by Richard Harding on singing bowls. Bear in mind It does get a little quiet towards the end as Richard offers singing bowl resonances to each participant, but his voice comes in to complete the Nidra. Recorded at the Midwinter Stillness workshop in Uckfield on 16th December 2017
This Nidra invites the listener to imagine their body like the landscape of a beach and to plant a stone embodying the essence of peace in the landscape. The stone lays steadfast in the earth regardless of the passing weather.
This 23min Yoga Nidra was recorded live at our Women's Yoga weekly class at The Life Centre, Islington, London on Samhain (Halloween) 31 October 2017. It is inspired by the energy of the Goddess Kali. The name Kali coming from the root sanskrit word Kal meaning time, this Nidra is about coming home to the present moment, the now. The rotation honours the deep feminine in every part of the body, and there is the welcoming of the void (a space which Kali's sky-clad dark form can be said to represent) and seeing what arises.
