This is a deep relaxation practice, helping us to get ready for sleep. There is no movement required. The suggestion is to be as cosy and comfy as possible - people often join us from their beds, ready for sleep. You won't be brought back at the end of the session, so if you have drifted off, there's no need to worry about having to chat.

Yoga Nidra & Sound Bath: Relaxing into Winter - 7-9pm

Sun 23 Jan 2022
7:00 PM
Online
£20.00
--View Description--

In January we can often feel like we should be busy making changes to our lives and to ourselves. But in January it can be exhausting just to do the things that need to be done. With less daylight hours, lower energy levels and a pull towards needing to hibernate - we can find ourselves exhausted. Can you give yourself permission to have a night off from it all, to carve some time just for you - to allow yourself to rest.


Susie from Pause & Breathe and Morag from Sound Balance Scotland are delighted to collaborate again for a relaxing evening – you don’t need to do anything, just lie back and listen to a soothing yoga nidra (relaxation-style meditation) followed by a sound bath. Our theme for the night is “Relaxing into Winter”. We will be bringing in themes of resting, releasing, letting go and allowing. Susie will guide the yoga nidra aimed to allow the body to start to unwind, and to decompress. Morag will share some beautiful gentle sounds to aid our relaxation further.


Our session will be held on Sunday 23rd January, 7-9pm via zoom. The cost of the session is £25, for the full evening (with discounts for The Heart Movement online subscribers). If this feels too much currently, please get in contact. We have subsidised spaces available - just let us know what you can afford, no questions asked.

Deepening Stillness & Renewal Silent Day Retreat

Sat 29 Jan 2022 - Sun 30 Jan 2022
Various
Online
--View Description--

 Join Joe and Kareem for a silent day retreat for deepening stillness and renewal at the start of the new year. A silent day retreat is a precious gift we can offer ourselves, a radical act of pausing and a rare opportunity to create a clearing in our life for reflection and renewal. When we step back from our daily roles, routines and habits, there is a chance to pause, take a step back and listen to what’s underneath the surface of our lives.


A silent day also offers us the benefit of experiencing a period of sustained mindfulness practice, which means an opportunity to deepen connection to ourselves and be in touch with our experience as it unfolds. On this day we will also follow the wisdom of this seasonal cycle which invites us to rest in the space of darkness and quiet, the clearing where life rests, renews itself and re emerges from again.


Our experience will be supported by a rich schedule and a community to share the day with. We will explore a variety of practices, reflective activities, journaling and different opportunities to turn our home environment into a space of nourishment contemplation. There will also be the chance to experience longer periods of meditation and a consistent flow of structured activities to be held by.


“Silence is essential. We need silence, just as much as we need air, just as much as plants need light. If our minds are crowded with words and thoughts, there is no space for us”

Thich Nhat Hanh



We will begin with an opening session on the evening of Saturday 29th of January to share our intentions, prepare ourselves and connect with our community. We will begin our full day on Sunday the 30th at 7:30 am and close by 5pm. The day will include lots of breaks and time away from the screen, including periods for being outdoors.


We're offering this retreat on a donation basis. After the retreat has occurred, you will be contacted to make a donation - this can be whatever you feel you would like to, and are able to, contribute. A guide is £30-£50, but the choice is completely yours.


This retreat is most suitable for people who have some mindfulness experience and an established practice, but all are welcome. We will be actively encouraging everyone to take care of their wellbeing and regularly check in with our needs during the day.



Sample schedule:



Saturday opening session & orientation: 8-9 PM


Sunday:


7:30-8:15 Morning practice and instructions


8:15-10- Free time


10-11- Morning practice period and reflections

Yarnfulness - mindfulness, but with yarn - 1-5pm - Stirling

Sat 05 Feb 2022
1:00 PM
Coorie Creative, The Thistles Shopping Centre, Goosecroft Rd, Stirling, FK8 2EA, United Kingdom
£67.50
--View Description--

Yarnfulness - it's mindfulness, but with yarn. Weave a meditation cushion whilst practising mindfulness - complete novices are welcome. Yarnfulness - a brand new event, which combines the art of weaving with a mindfulness practice . Two therapeutic practices, combined together over the course of an afternoon.


Over the four hours you will be introduced to zen weaving on beautiful hand-weaving looms. Full instruction will be given for the weaving, and for the mindfulness, so you can be a complete beginner at one or both, although those with experience are also welcome.


The looms will be set up for you in advance, you'll be able to choose from a range of yarns - wool, organic cotton or Tencel (the vegan alternative to silk) - and will be able to see which colours you feel inspired to work with. Weaving is a mindfulness practice in itself, and we will also have the chance to stop and tune in with our breath, and bring all of our senses into play whilst we're weaving. The mindfulness practices will engage with the gentle rhythm of hand-weaving, adding to the feeling of relaxation and being at one with the loom.


By the end of the session you will have produced a piece of beautiful cloth to sew up and use as a meditation cushion.

There are only 6 spaces for this workshop, so our advice is to book quickly! We have a subsidised space - no questions asked, just offer what you can - please only take this if you would not otherwise be able to come.


Refreshments are included, please let us know of any dietary requirements.


This workshop is being offered by Mairi Breslin of Coorie Creative and Susie Hooper of Pause & Breathe.
