Autumnal Colours

Thanks to the Eleven who came with us for the 11.11.11 ceremony at 11 am in beautiful Bushy Park.
The bell rang as we began our silence to join with all those wishing for Peace.  In silence we walked to the magical water gardens where we raised the prana with yoga flows and gentle thoughts.  We shared our concerns and our joys at meeting again with like minded friends new and old .   Two hundred steps in our meditation walk under the Hornbeam Cathedral ended our silence and we enjoyed the autumnal colours near the canadian totem pole before making our way to lunch.   Yoga is One!

Here is a short extract from the latest club newsletter just sent out to members as I hope it will inspire us all to keep true to our 'Kind' self and committed to sharing whatever we have with others for the good of all.

Groovy Guru News Autumn 2011  (Extract)
This year has indeed proved challenging for our planet as predicted by the ancient seers. We have a choice as to how we continue with our lives in 2012 and any preparation we make now will help with that transition from a selfish way of being which will lead to more personal distress and destruction of our environment or to an acceptance that we are part of a whole and that means a switch from a taking to a giving mentality; from competitiveness to co-operation.. It has all been said before but this is now a time for action and not words or good intentions. It all begins with each individual as the story of the starfish illustrates:

One day a man was walking along a beach covered by dying starfish which had been washed ashore and could not get back into the ocean. What a shame he thought and kept walking. Further along the beach he met a young girl who was picking up one starfish at a time and gently placing it back in the sea. It looked a momentous, futile task and he told her she would make no real difference but she just continued anyway despite his advice to walk away and get on with her day. “Why are you wasting your time?” he asked. As she gave yet another starfish a chance to live, she said. “Well it made a difference to that one”

Remember: No act of Kindness is ever wasted.       Love and Light Sammi

11.11.11. PEACE

The full moon last night lit up the darkness in the sky and for those meditating it gave a powerful influx of energy to help us all through this transition period for humanity.

We meet today in the park to breathe in the gifts of nature and further increase our prana flow on this auspicious date and time. We meet not only for ourself but to be able to become stronger in order to give to others who may be weaker than us and who need our good thoughts and Love.

At 11 am we will be in silence and hope that wherever you are you will be with us in spirit as we stay in the present moment and send out Love and Gratitude to the world and all beings.

Although this is Remembrance day for some cultures it is not the yogic philosophy to dwell on memories but rather to be fully present in the moment.

That is not to say we do not honour all deeds of courage and all sacrifices made for the good of all but rather that we send our energy out in this moment to increase goodwill and peace so that each 'memory' is one of Love and therefore creates a present and future that is Peaceful for all people without regret and hatred.

The Affirmation for the morning practise is as follows and do join us at 11 am.

I Live in freedom from inner and outer harm. I live in Joy and Acceptance of things as they are.

I live in Peace, Love and Truth. From the centre of my heart I wish this Harmony for all sentient beings.

For the good of all that is and all that can be.

Om shanti shanti shanti

Love and Gratitude

Just received a thank you from Louise and it reminded me of the wonderful ice crystals formed by the intention of Love and Gratitude in the Masaru Emoto 'Messages in Water' book.
He said that the crystal formed from the words Love and Gratitude tied around a water bottle was
 "as perfect as can be.  This indicates that Love and Gratitude are fundamental to the phenomenon of life in all of nature"

Here is the e mail from Louise and it gave me a warm glow reading it and I know that it gives the sender a feeling of joy as well.  Everything we give comes back with the law of Karma!

Monday's class has stayed with me all week; my shoulders and neck are freer as well as hips. It often strikes me, but I don't pass it on enough, how well thought out the sessions are. This is just to let you know that it is appreciated!

Love and hugs


Practise sending good thoughts to all and see how much your experience of living, even amidst difficult situations, feels better

Love and Gratitude to all beings!
