Join Geeti & Gyan for a transformative, uplifting and creative celebration of Navaratri, with kirtan, conscious dance with live music, sound healing, chai and prasad.
This will be a great opportunity to come together as a community to sing, dance and connect on a soul level.
Navaratri has been celebrated annually for centuries in India. This festival spans 9 days to help transform, nourish and cultivate the life-affirming qualities within ourselves, which include courage, love and creativity.
Literally meaning ‘nine nights,’ Navaratri coincides with the equinoxes. Indian sages, past and present, have said that it’s a particularly auspicious time for any spiritual practice (sadhana).
Traditionally the first 3 days help us cleanse and release what no longer serves us through connecting with the transformative energies of the Goddess, Durga. The next 3 days, dedicated to the Goddess, Laksmi, gives us an opportunity to experience our innate beauty, abundance and love.
AN EVENING OF CELEBRATION
Qi Yoga’s celebration on the 24th October coincides with the festival’s last 3 days, a celebration of the Goddess, Saraswati, an energy within us which is creative, flowing, expressive, insightful & harmonious.
The intention of this evening is to nourish and cultivate our creative and expressive spirit, both individually and collectively through the transformative power of kirtan, conscious dance and sound healing.
Geeti and Gyan are passionate about sharing music, mantra and movement to help open people’s hearts. They bring joyful, uplifting and meditative qualities to kirtan, dance and sound healing.
KIRTAN, DANCE AND SOUND HEALING
Kirtan is a very accessible call and response group practice, combining potent Sanskrit vibrational sounds called mantra with melody and rhythm to help bring us into a relaxed, balanced and expansive state of being.
Kirtan can elevate our thoughts and emotions, boost our energy and expand our awareness. It can be practised by everyone, regardless of age or experience.
No musical experience is required, just come along to sing, share, move and receive.
The conscious movement and dance, led by Geeti, a gifted and experienced Soul Motion teacher, will offer the chance to release what no longer serves you and dance your way to free, embodied and creative expression. Taking you on a journey to awaken, vitalise and balance your life-force, and to connect and harmonise body, mind and soul.
The program will conclude with a sound bath will help to integrate, harmonise and nourish your energy and consciousness.
There will be chai and prasad (sweets) afterwards too!
An invitation to wear something comfortable for the evening so you can move easily. If you would like to wear either something WHITE, YELLOW or RED/PINK …it would also be wonderful !
PLEASE BRING A CHSION OR CHAIR TO SIT ON
