Pranayama is the ancient practice of what we might now call ‘Breath work’. It is one of the eight limbs of yoga. Join us for this gentle yogic 3-part breath practice – Dirga breath, which is considered a foundational practice in pranayama.
One day, Laura met The Muse – an energetic portal into a beautiful rich seam of age-old wisdom that is deeply relevant to our lives today. Messages began to come forth through her and a collection of stories gathered, wanting to be shared – As the Birds Land was born.
Sadhana is a Sanskrit term, meaning ‘regular spiritual practice’. In modern terms, this can of course mean many things – meditation, prayer, breath work, movement etc, as long as these practices are undertaken with an intention to connect more deeply to our inner selves, and the world around us. What is key to Sadhana, is that whatever practice is chosen, it is done regularly (daily) and rhythmically.
This season, as we journey into the dark half of the year, we’ll meet again for regular sacred ceremony in The Sanctum. In each circle, held weekly, we’ll share tea ritual, listen to poetry and guided wisdom, and connect in silent meditation and reflective space.
In partnership with Ria Ingleby, we invite you to join us for a silent gathering on September 24th – a quiet, deep, yet gentle exploration for body, mind and spirit.
Silence is rarely experienced, and really needed. Practising silence allows us to surface and contact hidden truth and wisdom. That’s why we’ve created this gathering for you – so you can tap in below the noise to what wants to be revealed and known.
We are taught to varying degrees, that softening is a passive process. That to soften is to opt out, stop caring or even disconnect. That softness is a weakening, apathy, resignation.
We are taught that purpose is something we must search for and find – but in the grasping so much is lost, and for many it seems somewhat elusive, and so forever out of reach.
The Sanctum was created so that you have a place to nourish your soul. A place to settle, soften and unfold, to sink deep into self, remember, discover and wonder. A place to be quiet and introspective – energetically held by a community of fellow seekers, travelling The Sanctum alongside you.
Finding space is a deep, yet lightly held development programme for progressive teams and groups of people in business. A shared experience for those of you who are bored of the norm, who want to experiment with doing something different – individually, together.
Life as a leader is increasingly full and chaotic, there are huge demands on your time, and your energy. Your thinking is always being stretched. Emotions shift at lightning speed. Things around you continue to move at pace – there is an increasing amount of swirl and, despite the stuckness, nothing ever stands still.
