Please donate to Kerala Flood appeals

Dear Yogis,

Please open your hearts to this awful situation in Kerala where we took students for retreat and met some wonderful, generous people who now need our help.
There are many Charities collecting and the Kerala government also has a relief fund.  Just do it!

July Blood Red Moon - Lunar Eclipse

Look up to the stars tonight and marvel at the wonder of nature.   In the South East at around 8 pm gmt we will see the Moon Blood Red with Mars just below as a shinning star..............if no clouds of course!   What a juxtaposition -  our peaceful moon is Red and the Planet of War is White. 

Nothing is as it seems and it is good to be prepared to change our views and see the other side sometimes.   That does not mean surrendering to the dark side; just a willingness to allow change to happen.

Butterfly count is on until the 12th August so do visit the to get a chart and record your sightings to help with conservation of these beautiful creatures.

Here are some recent sightings along the River Crane Sanctuary and more photos/videos of nature are on our Flickr Album so visit us there if you want to see more:

Only Truth is eternal

Dear Yogis,

Wise words from Krishnamurti which I pass on for your consideration..............................

"Without removing the causes of ignorance, there cannot be enlightenment; and to seek enlightenment when the mind is unenlightened is utterly empty, meaningless. Therefore, I must begin to see the false in my relationships with ideas, with people, with things. When the mind sees that which is false, then that which is true comes into being and then there is ecstasy, there is happiness."  Krishnamurti

Summer Solstice

Dear Yogis

A beautiful day and night for this year's Solstice and we trust you all connected with nature and the divine to feel the unity of all.    Keep positive and send out your light even when confronted with darkness and untruths.  All is perfect and whole and all will be well.

Beautiful Moons and community sharing for the end of May

Dear Yogis,

Some photos for you of the beauty of nature and how a walk in silence along a river corridor under a canopy of trees can connect us with our true selves: the real meaning of yoga...we are one.

May - Beautiful Foliage and prana along the River Crane Sanctuary

Spring nearly turning into summer and the recent heat and rain has turned the river corridor green and bursting with prana.  Go out and practise some pranayama in the open air.  Wonderful to see the butterflies and bats back to feed and rest.   We will have another workshop on the Island.....really we will.....but we are busy with a charity event and street party which is yoga in action!
Here are some nature photos for you to enjoy and inspire you to go for a silent walk and draw in some inspiration from nature.
