The Moon is more than a glow in the sky.
It is a psychic mirror that Tantrics learn to read,
and tune into its ever changing rhythms.
Rhythms not Man-made
but ordained by Nature herself.”

– Boonath

The Tantric Calendar dedicates this coming dark Moon to Saturn. Shuni Jayanti is the annual commemoration of Shuni, the dark planet. Many of the remedies and rituals of Tantra that relate to Shuni, such as the one we will engage in on Shuni Jayanti, are all about ways of getting us in touch with our shadow side. The shadow is ever there, but goes usually unseen, and it may be made up of denied, feared, forgotten and repressed feelings.

It could be said that, getting the vision of the Shadow world is the beginning of the path of Tantra. And that, the integration and work with the Shadow, is the living of Tantra. Whether it is a ritual, Mantra, or specific austerity (tapasya), the main focus of Saturn-related pursuits is that they are such, as to bring an awareness of that which we do not see.

The Hatha Yog practices of Mudra and Mantra that raise the unconscious forces will be undertaken at this particularly favourable Dark-Moon junction of Shuni Jayanti. The inner and outer Crow Mudras and The Chaya Karana practices of the Shadow will be particularly emphasised.

The Mantras related to the Crow use specific bijas, or seed syllables, that activate the unconscious sides of our Chakras. In Tantra they are secret Mantras that are carefully handled as they have very strong effect to arouse the latent spirits. Much intonations, are part of the Tantric science of sound we will explore as part of this ritual gathering.

They resonate particular frequencies of sound vibration, that activate the Chaya Nadis (shadow-energy-lines that are latent). Much of the Tantric path of healing involves bringing the spirits that rule us from the unconscious to the ear of awareness. This will be the focus on this night’s ritual.

This year Shuni Jayanti happens to fall on a Solar Eclipse. Read our Blog entry to find out more about the ways a solar eclipse can influence us and our lives. Shuni Jayanti also falls under the spell of the Krittika lunar house (Nakshatra), the Star of Fire. To read about the fascinating tales of this star constellation clich HERE.

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.
