WINTER SOLSTICE YOGA COMMUNITY CELEBRATION

Let’s celebrate the (almost) shortest day of the year together!

16.00 – 17.30: Candlelit yoga class in silence (with visual guidance as needed)
17.30 – 18.00: Meditation
18.00….Potluck supper – feel free to bring a vegetarian dish if you’d like and we’ll sup together!

You can attend each event separately as you’d like, the afternoon is by donation only – whatever you feel moved to give will contribute to the well-being and upkeep of our community and will be greatly appreciated :)

AN EVENING OF KIRTAN AND MEDITATION WITH NIGAM

Friday, December 2nd, 19.00 – 22.00
10 euros

When repeating simple mantras a special alchemy occurs in the heart, and suddenly we are open to love and acceptance. Nigam will teach us some ancient and new mantras, tell tales of his journey and lead us in meditation together. Most of all he hopes to inspire us on our spiritual journey of self discovery.

Nigam has been singing kirtan for 30 years. He currently teaches meditation and mantra throughout Europe and we are honored to have him join us at the Yoga Community.

“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It’s a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”

Pema Chodron
