Living Rest ~ End of Summer Wind Down
Rest, Nourish, Enjoy
Thursday 13 August 2020
4 - 7 pm
Join Naseem for a much-needed end of Summer nourishing restorative wind down.
After a lively summer adjusting to new conditions, we reach the seasonal juncture and first harvest festival known as Lughnasadh or Lammas (a Celtic Festival and cross quarter-point between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox).
At this point in the Wheel of the Year, nature is reflecting back the spirit of abundance and joyful celebration as Life reaches Her full peak. We are at a point of ripening; harvesting the jewels we have been nurturing into maturation since the springtime. As we bathe in the beauty and bounty of summertime, these late summer days invite us to rest and take stock, protecting and nurturing that which we have planted/initiated earlier in the year and taking a moment to celebrate and enjoy your own harvest.
What is currently ripening in your life? What are you ready to harvest?
Join Naseem for an afternoon gestating in deep rest and quiet celebration, harnessing the beauty of late summer and the full potential of life force, as we listen deeply to the whispers of our soul and to that which awaits to be harvested before the cooler days arrive.
What to expect
Expect an afternoon of loving-kindness supporting the body, mind and nervous system peacefully in reconnecting to its natural state of stillness, quietude and joyful well being. From this space of deep rest, we begin to hear more clearly what the soul is longing for in this next cycle, as well as a deeper seeing of what blessings the past season has bestowed on us.
Within the restorative practice, Naseem will guide a mindful and slow sequence combining breath, meditation, simple stretches and longer periods of rest in restorative poses. The practice will be beautifully supported through the option of using handcrafted healing essential oil blends to encourage and inspire an opening of the senses, deeper connection to self and awaken the body's innate knowing. All of this accompanied by soothing, soulful sounds.
We will be working mostly on the floor with plenty of blocks, bolsters, cushions and blankets to support the body in its gentle surrender. The poses are simple yet potent and sometimes held for up to 15 minutes to support the drop deeper into a sense spaciousness and quietude.
Take some time out for yourself, and sink into a nourishing afternoon designed to unravel your whole being into a joyful state of rest, relaxation and homecoming.
All levels are welcome.
Spaces are limited to 14, so please be sure to book in advance.
We will be gathering in the beautiful and cosy Dome space at Anahata in Hjelm - enjoying high views of the sea and plenty of light pouring through.
