Kaal Bhairav rides upon the Black dog. The dog is a creature that sees into the spirit world and the realm of the dead. As well as the Lord of Time, Bhairav is also known as the God of Death. He holds the Kankala Danda, which is the skeleton stick of Time through which he measures our lives until we sail on our next adventure: Death.

We will be working deeply with the black dog spirit on this ritual night of Bhairav Astami, the 8th night after the full Moon – a night sacred to Kaal Bhairav. The wild dog is in touch with the spirit world. It is well known to rural folk of India that, when Death is near, the dogs will howl outside the dwelling of the one about to die.

The wild dog is a clairvoyant creature that sees through the veil between life and death. The domesticated dog, just like us humans, may have lost touch with its wild clairvoyant abilities. When we work with the wild black dog of Bhairav we work both with the dog itself and with its shadow – these take the form of inner mudras (Antar Mudra) that lead us towards our clairvoyant powers.

This night’s ritual will work with the various dog and tail Mudras and Asanam – in the investigation and quest of our raw spiritual and undomesticated self. We will work with the Antar Chaya (inner Chaya mudras) of observing and discovering the shadows cast by that which we hold in consciousness.

The secrets of inner shadow work of Chaya Karana (Shadow Practice), show us that shadows can’t be released without addressing that which casts them, nor can they be destroyed. The ritual will be an alignment to the spirit of the Vahaan (power animal) that is the Dog. We will engage in the Kuttha Karana style of dog mantra that assists in clairvoyant insight.
Those interested in working with the spirit of dog energy and opening to natural clairvoyant vision are welcomed, as are also those with an interest in inner shadow work.

Ancient & sacred

On these healing circles you will practice a form of Yoga that is rarely available and accessible even in India today. You will take part in a sacred Yogic tradition that roots itself in India’s native shamanic wisdom & Tantric lineage handed down orally between generations of Yogis, Babas, Sadhus and Fakirs.
You will be exposed to the old tantric ways of seeking profound healing and spiritual awakening, including practicing in darkly-lit spaces to quieten the mind and awaken the senses to the body’s subtle energy currents, holding simple postures for long periods of time, and engaging in powerful breath-work to open-up the body and take the mind into altered states of consciousness.

GENTLE

The practice draws on postures seldom used in modern styles of yoga, ancient sequences that honour the mother and the divine feminine, gently opening-up the body to its highest levels of flexibility through minimal effort.
Integral to this experience will be the exploration of sound-currents present in the body (Nada Yoga) – perhaps one of Yoga’s greatest secrets and one of the most powerful vehicles through which the karmic patterns stored in the chakras can be accessed and released in pursuit of profound healing.

 

UNIQUE

Unique to this tradition is its simultaneous employment of Asanas (postures), aerobic & anaerobic Pranayam (breathwork), Mudras (gestures), and Mantras (sacred sounds).
The synergy created by the employment of these various yogic tools will lead you into altered states of consciousness and dream-like experiences aimed at facilitating a greater openness to inward journeying and an easier access to your subconscious.

UNBOUND

Because we are going to play with shamanic yogic traditions, the practice will take place outside of clearly time constraints. Generally, the practice will last about 6 hours, but if the group is ready to practice longer we might carry well into the night.

INCLUSIVE

The Circle is open to those interested in the healing path.
Tantra and Yoga practitioners, and those seeking healing, practitioners of the mystic arts. Both advanced and beginners will find a place in this circle.
If you have had or are having psychosis please get in touch directly with us as this is important to know about in this work. The same goes for those with strong mobility issues. Drug and alcohol users also need to inform us of their condition. Thank you.

 

 

The practice usually takes place in the dark or darkly-lit spaces.
