Jivamukti Diwali Workshop with Faye

Diwali festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness or good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair, much needed through our global struggles.

So in our practice we take on a dance towards Flying Warrior Pose (Vishvamistrasana) we acknowledge ourselves as Spiritual Warriors who go to battle everyday with our own egos & self ignorance (Avidya) to free ourselves from this ultimate source of all of our suffering.

In this practice we acknowledge & celebrate the difficulties & the challenges we have faced and currently face and understand that being thrown into the darkness is what has been the catalyst for us to become the Spiritual Warriors that we are and to continue our journey so that we may continue to fly through adversity.

Facial Massage Flow workshop with Laura

We often spend time focusing on toning the muscles from the neck down, but forget about the 42 muscles in the face, as well as the neck ones too!

During this ritual, Laura will invite you to connect with these muscles and guide you through a tension releasing and glow enhancing facial massage ritual. We will begin with a relaxing facial cleanse to prep the skin and then flow into our restorative, radiance enhancing facial ritual, all whilst being soothed by calming sound bowl therapy.

Whilst healthy glowing skin is often achieved from regular facial massage, it’s the emotional effects that clients often find incredibly beneficial from performing this skin ritual. Laura is passionate about teaching her clients to perform self compassionate skincare rituals, with a deeply relaxing and mindful focus.

Lunch @ Fields Cafe

We are thrilled to invite you to have lunch with us provided by our next door neighbours, Fields Farm Shop & Cafe.

*Do let us know on your booking form if you have dietary requirements.

Yin Yoga & Crystal Meditation with Faye & Samantha

This workshop looks to cultivate all the benefits of yin yoga whilst drawing upon the energy of the crystals that we laid into the foundations of the building.

Poses and meditations are supported by Rose Quartz to promote positivity, love and balance and Citrine to enhance self esteem, joy and abundance.

Each workshop participant will receive a rose quartz and citrine crystal to take home.

Cacao Ceremony with Faye & Samantha

Take part in a ceremony honouring cacao and set intentions around lighting up your life with the energy of Diwali.

Healthy wholefood snacks will also be provided.

Chant Om
Kirtan with Faye, Michelle & Gary

Known as The Yoga of Sound, Kirtan is a form of Bhakti (Devotion) yoga – an active meditation that is the practice of Union with the Divine Self.

Prepare for a Diwali journey in opening your heart & plugging into deeper spheres of existence – being in a state of awe, our perspective shifts, we begin to see the bigger picture of life, realise our interconnectedness with all things & so therefore have a better ability to carry that out into our daily lives, working environment, our relationships with other people, animals, mother earth & all of existence.

Thank you so much for your wonderful class on Friday (and the links you sent of course!). I loved it and it was beautiful as well as super insightful and touching emotionally. The writing exercise we did has been really revelatory for me and I am setting aside some proper time to also write the letter once I have finished digging the allotment this weekend, which has given me hours yesterday to reflect on all you talked about, so digging both inside and out.
