Molesey Special Event! Heart-Expansion Workshop
July 30 @ 6:45 pm - 9:00 pm
Molesey Special Event! Heart-Expansion Workshop
Our workshop is designed to work on the heart chakra and physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental aspects related to this chakra.
This workshop will layer different spiritually uplifting modalities to achieve a more profound effect. We have designed these modalities to compliment each other and take participants on a deep inner journey.
In yogic traditions, Anahata, or the heart chakra is understood to be responsible for emotions such as love for others, self-love, empathy, compassion, understanding, kindness, generosity, and altruism. Its location is the middle of the chest, and on a physical level is thought to be related to the organs of the heart and lungs. On a spiritual level, it is considered the unifying chakra bringing wholeness, balance, and healing. Once opened and healthy, Anahata chakra allows us to feel part of something much larger, it helps us to see our reflection in others and helps us feel more connected to the world around us.
The format of the workshop – what to expect
We will start with chanting and yoga practices designed to relax and expand the heart space.
We will focus on the heart chakra through restorative and stretching yoga postures, rejuvenating breathing techniques, releasing chanting practices, and cleansing and healing sound therapy techniques. We hope you will feel an emotional release and sense of rejuvenation. As a gentle introduction, we will play the gong gently in the background to help open the physical layers of the body during some of the yoga postures.
Subtle gong sounds will compliment the yoga, as you move the gong will encourage energy flow to the stretched areas of the body.
Following the yoga, chanting, and pranayama (breathing exercises) we will give you a 5-minute break. Once everyone is comfortably laying down, we will start the extended sound bath. You will not be required to do anything at this point – simply relax on your mat and enjoy. We will use a combination of different instruments including our gong, drums, Shamanic Rattle, and crystal bowl to create a profound, and powerful experience.
We will finish the session with a group discussion and free organic tea. You will have an opportunity to share your experience with others and ask any questions at this point.
Joanna Bristow-Watkins will be joining us and assisting with the Aromatherapy side of the event. Many thanks to Jo for joining us!
