In the month of July we will be working with the themes of Saturn, traveling along 4 Moon junctions, starting with the Dark Moon of July 10th, moving on to the two half Moons of July 17th and July 31st, with the Full Moon sandwiched between them on the 24th of July. This series of Saturnian Tantric ritual will be undertaken upon ritual days of the astro-Tantric-calendar. On these evenings, we will be going further and deeper into some of the recent Saturnian themed work that we have been stepping into.

Saturnian themes of restriction have played out en masse in the events we have all faced in recent times. Feeling stifled by the events of our inner and outer lives can leave us with a sense of struggling against the weight of constricting forces. In such a constellation we are made to face our deepest Karmic themes.

The second date in the Moons of Saturn series will fall on the rising half Moon, when the Moon will balance in half, before its ascent to the full Moon. On this evening we shall continue upon the Saturnian journey and travel to the place where darkness and light meet in harmonious equilibrial balance. This ascending half moon will be in the lunar house of Hasta Nakshatra.

We will be ritualisticly working with the energy of this lunar house in this nights Astro-Tantric ritual. Hasta means hand and is the star of reaching into things with careful skill and dexterity. In this ritual, we will skillfully reach in to the passing dark face of the Moon and the unconscious world within us. With the material psychic gathered, we will proceed to move skillfully between the poles of dark and light, as we bring the unconscious world workably towards awareness.

The ruling deity of Hasta Nakshatra is Savitr. This is the name given to the midnight sun, who steps out of the dark and towards his rising face which the Yogins call Surya. The transition from dark to light, unconsciousness to consciousness will be the occupation of this nights ritual. The Moon on this night rises out of its dark phase, and will guide the ritual. This will be reflected in the work of bringing the deep dark Saturnian world into into view. The heavy oppressive energies of existence can’t be denied, and they ought not to be denied, if we are to travel the path of healing.

The poison is a medicine depending on how it is taken. The medicine becomes also a poison, if taken out of measure. On this nights ritual, we shall meet the balanced measure of poison and medicine. Those things that hurt the soul in the cold dank and dark subterranean realms, are the places from where the seed hatches to life. For Tantrics every ascending half Moon is a time to do a work of alchemy, and care for the seedling that is sprouting from the dark compost-barrel of our soul. When we chase the light too much we throw out compost and seedling together. This night’s ritual will be a reminder of, and a work with, the potent magical power of the pain we carry.


Sorry, Event Expired


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.
