To see a World in a Grain of Sand
Sunday 2nd February 1.30-4.00
To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
In this beautiful poem William Blake asks us to reflect on our relationship with time and the meaning of our lives. In this Jivamukti workshop we will investigate the deeper meaning of this poem . The reason we cannot seem to link our current actions, with past actions and future results, is because we act unconsciously. When consciousness lapses the continuity of actions is lost. The present moment seems to have unrelated challenges and novel inventions of fate. “How did I get here?” “Why is this happening to me?” The world seems to be coming at us for no fault of our own. Yoga practices reveal how your actions result in the life you experience, and your projections appear – as the world before you.
We will explore a deep forward bending practice interwoven with long holds in Asana to bring consciousness into the present moment and to see our relationship with time . Experience a musical soundtrack , meditation , pranayama , Sanskrit chanting including Yoga sutras of Patanjali and deep relaxation .
