The fourth Quadrant in the Pilamaya Soma 300TT
This course is 5 night residential for those who have completed the earlier modules.
20-25th March 2023
Surrender invites the participant to consciously claim their highest potential through experiential processes that connect to the Great Mystery. The group explores itself through the lens fo sacred ceremony. The element we embody is metal and the meridians are the lungs and the large intestine.
There are two somatic focusses. The Universe in the Body, acknowledging our true nature leads us to accept the inevitable and eventually we surrender to the divine inside. We recognise ourselves as the medicine of life and take our places as The Dancer in the web and share our light with existence.
Participants will learn to use Embodied Yin, spontaneous movement, and Yoga Nidra to deeply experience their inner-worlds. As we celebrate ourselves for making it this far, we also learn how to work with ending that must come before the next beginning. The respiratory system shows us how each breath is an ending and beginning, and so, we discuss this vital aspect of our existence.
We explore how our practice supports the lymphatic system to deliver waste fluids over to the circulatory system and out via the kidneys, urinary system. The practices and meditations bring us back to the Elder who resides in the heart. As we connect to what has always been there our presence shifts to a whole new frequency; the wisdom in the heart returns and we broadcast our innate magnificence. The observer that looks through these eyes sees the true energy of the Universe, that that encompasses both light and dark, the force of Love.
This quadrant will have a deeply nourishing effect on those who have undergone transformational processes that include shadow and integrative work. It offers the opportunity to reside in our essence and to celebrate ourselves and each other. It will be of benefit to yoga teachers who wish to include the practices and ceremony in their workshops. Therapists who take this training will connect to something greater than themselves; the energy that they broadcast into the field becomes potent with the force of Love.
