1. Poem: Samhain Verse

When we are close to darkness
May we be the space between –
May our friendships be bright gateways
To let clear light shine through…

Song fragment adapted from Samhain verses in
Uma’s Patreon Circles of Belonging

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

Jai Mā Dear Yoni Shaktis!


We are so very close to darkness, both in this winter season in the Northern Hemisphere and in humanity’s present crisis of brutal suffering and oppressions. These deep challenges call forward both our vulnerability and our resilience, as we rediscover what we already know: that on this web of hearts we each need each other to make it through. Community connection is all. It has been so hard to be so far from home for so long, and it’s very sweet to be returning. YESSS!

I so pleased to be able to tell you all – please to say I AM COMING HOME!  Yesss!  After a year in Canada caring for a family member I am finally returning – TO STROUD AND LONDON.



YES! I am so delighted to confirm that I will be in London at the start of December offering multiple courses and workshops with our fantastic teaching team at the magnificent Portico Gallery. On offer is the vibrant and inspiring Yoni Shakti Well Woman Yoga Therapy Teacher Training,and the two day Total Yoga Nidra Immersion for Unlimited Creativity.  If you are feeling called to join the Yoni Shakti Well Woman Yoga Therapy Teacher Training, sign up by midnight this Friday Nov 11th and you will still have the chance to pay in two installments.



This month it is my joy to give away free lifetime access to my Creative and Sexual Pleasures Online Course as a free gift to anyone who chooses to join any one of the tiers in my Patreon circles of belonging. This is the place where I share first, and there are so many benefits to becoming a patron of my work in Patreon, including (amongst many other wonders) FREE access to my new and full moon circles.  Everyone who joins us is always guaranteed a warm personal welcome from me – but this month the free gift makes the welcome feel even sweeter: the gift is available to all who sign up on Patreon before midnight November 30th.



London was my home for 27 years, but it is in the nurturing valleys of Stroud that we rest now. We share what we have learnt. For twenty-five years myself and my husband Nirlipta have dedicated our lives to healing and caring for our community through yoga therapy, yoga nidrā and cyclical wisdom.

We are now honoured to be able to open our home temple and our hearts to small group, non-residential 2 day Total Yoga Nidra NEW YEAR RETREATS.  We invite you to join us to end the year with a two day Total Yoga Nidra Immersion for Unlimited Creativity retreat (30-31 December 22) and / or to start the year with the Alchemy of Dream and Sleep Retreat (01-02 January 23) or perhaps come along for both and ensure that you start the year feeling nourished, rested and inspired.



Menopause is a potent initiation into power. Your power! And the process can be a bit rough sometimes. So I’m delighted to share another Online Menopause Retreat with my Ayurvedic colleague Virginia Compton –  its a FESTIVE REFUGE from Christmas madness,  a time to nourish ourselves in connection with each other, and with the healing sisters of yoga and ayurveda – join us to be nurtured and nourished and to discover key practices to support the many journeys of menopause, in your own special way!

Wherever you may be in the journey of this life, let us remember that it is in connection that we illuminate our hearts: together we can shine the light and find our way through this very dark moment.

In the service of Nidra Shakti 

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

Free Total Yoga Nidra Downloads

Did you know that you can download a wealth of Total Yoga Nidras by Uma, Nirlipta and a host of others trained in Total Yoga Nidra for free from here.

And if you’d like some specifically for women then there are some from Uma’s book Yoni Shakti here.
