"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not: nothing is more common
than unsuccessful wo/men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb
Education will not; the world is full of educated failures.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent"
So you have no excuses now...I am not looking for talent or genius
just your Presence!
Get out your diaries and calendars and start preparing for your
autumn yogic extravaganza!
We start on Wednesday 3rd September with a workshop/class 7 to 9.30 pm to address individual needs/problems areas followed by the regular Wednesday flow class for 7 weeks from 10 sept. Time : 7.15 - 9.15 pm
Wed 29th October will be another remedial class to give more attention again to specific areas like the headstand. 7 more weeks of flow class follow on from Wed 5 Nov Time 7.15 to 9.15 pm
Mon 8th September Time 7.30 to 9.30 pm Begins our Spiritual Laws Group and you need to buy Caroline Myss Book:Anatomy of the Spirit - The Seven Stages of Power and Healing Pub:Bantam Books
This class will run alternate mondays for eight weeks to give a good chance to absorb some very powerful insights into How we heal and Why we don't! Each monday will be complete in itself for drop-in or missing some days as I am basing it on one Chakra per meeting but for full benefit the whole course is recommended. Not just about healing but also for expanding our spiritual awareness. Other specific texts and books will be offered.
Format, as before, is informal discussion based on reading and questions posed, some group work, meditation. Hot chocolate and eats to tempt you out!
Homework and personal study is essential for this deep work.
International Peace Day Sunday 21 September 4 to 6 pm Please support this day of Peace by coming together to chant/dance and meditate for a couple of hours to join with millions of others around the world. All donations to our Yogawise charity: Medecins sans Frontiers www.msf.org nb: Let me know if you want to join us for a meal afterwards in Twickers!
Saturday 25th October: time: 9.30 am to 3.30 pm Day workshop in Beautiful Bushy Park - Warm inside venue with outside grass and trees for breath work if fine. Some Qi Gong energy work along with main focus on the Asanas suitable for your Dosha and the Gunas.
Sunday 21st December (provisional) Xmas lunch meditation walk in the Park - if we are not all too frazzled by then or 'lunched out'.

Some of you have asked for an extract from the club newsletter that you have heard about and which may help in current life issues you are experiencing. Hope this helps and I will be organising a special one day workshop for Cancer Relief (Or any chronic/painful condition) which will give some simple pranayama exercises to help with breathing/energising the body and mind when experiencing the tired all the time feeling; plus relaxation techniques (Yoga Nidra) to help with pain relief. There will be a cost for those who can afford to pay but no charge if you cannot pay at this time. Just ask and we will work something out.
Extract from Spring Club Newsletter:
In India, in the midst of great poverty, disease and seeming hopelessness, we experienced incredible hope and joy. Coming back to what is a paradise of abundance and opportunities, we are aware of sorrow and pain that is universal and not dependent on affluence alone.
The words of Rainer Maria Rilke are a great help in these times of seeming despair when we want answers and all we have is questions.
"Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not look now for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it find yourself experiencing the answer, some day.
'Everything that exists in this ever-changing universe is pervaded by that divine intelligence'
says the Isha Upanishad. The sage sees all beings in this one great consciousness and this one great consciousness in all beings. What sorrow or delusion can there be for one who beholds this perfect unity? The most advanced practises of yoga are designed to help us feel this oneness.
