Our body is a vessel to our soul.  It is our best friend.  It is our companion.

Saying thank you to your body is one of the most important things you can do.  This delicious Yin workshop offers us the opportunity to love our companion.  When we move slowly through a mindful practice with the essence of breath, we create love and acceptance of the body and soul.

CONSCIOUS CINEMA

FRIDAY 27th MARCH
7:15PM
FREE
 

Welcome to our monthly Conscious Cinema at Yogaharta! Every month we will be screening an inspiring, thought-provoking or educational film as a way of bringing our community together and encouraging discussion on important topics!

March’s screening will be ‘Becoming Nobody‘.

 BECOMING NOBODY represents the core arc of Ram Dass’ teachings and life: whether as Dr. Richard Alpert, the eminent Harvard psychologist, or as Ram Dass who serves as a bridge between Eastern and Western philosophies, he has defined a generation of inner explorers and seekers of truth and wisdom. Through his turns as scion of an eminent Jewish family from Boston, rock-star Harvard psychologist, counter-culture rascally adventurer, Eastern holy man, stroke survivor and compassionate caregiver, Ram Dass has worn many hats on his journey, the narrative of which is revealed in this film. His ability to entertain and his sense of humor are abundantly evident in a conversation that brings us around to address the vast question of ultimate freedom.

Note: the film will start around 7:45-8pm.

 

Vegan treats and popcorn will be available before and after the film for a donation.

Funds raised will be donated to Wildlife Victoria to continue our support of the animals affected by the recent bushfires.

Bookings: It is a free event, but we would love to know how many people are coming so that we have enough food and drinks, so please book in below!

SOUNDSHOWER
with Avishai Barnatan

FRIDAY 6TH MARCH
7:30PM – 9PM
EARLYBIRD – $35
(until 7 Feb – limited earlybird tickets apply)
GENERAL – $40
 

Come bathe in pure sounds that will take you on a deeply transformational journey. The Soundshower combines chimes, tibetan bowls, flutes and vocal harmonics.

During a session you will be invited to lie down and immerse in vibrations created by these special instruments. Throughout the “Shower” different instruments are carried around the room and sometimes placed physically on the body. Flutes and voice are used to create a magical musical journey and overtones charge the brain and energize the body.

Being exposed to these healing frequencies enhances a physical, mental and emotional calibration to the human body and energy field. Pure frequencies shift and release stagnant energy and tension accumulated in the body. The Soundshower re-aligns and harmonizes body/mind and is a very relaxing and refreshing experience. It releases stress and anxiety increasing focus clarity and insight.

Avishai Barnatan is a multi instrumentalist, producer and Sound therapist. Since 1990 he has been exploring the nature of sound and its therapeutic qualities as a tool for physical & emotional transformation and healing. Inspired by modern scientific research as well as ancient esoteric and mystic knowledge, he has developed his own approach and style of sound healing . He facilitates group and private sessions for the general public as well as with people of diverse conditions such as various addictions, anxiety and stress-related symptoms, applying different techniques of vibrational therapy. These sessions are a deeply nourishing experience.

Avishai has facilitated “Soundshowers” in festivals such as Wanderlust, Byron Spirit festival, Evolve Yoga fest, Jerusalem Sacred Music Festival and Uplift festival. He regularly holds sessions at venues around Australia.

KIRTAN CHANTING

SATURDAY 22nd FEBRUARY
7PM – 9PM
BY DONATION*

Kirtan is the practice of singing or chanting ancient Sanskrit mantras, usually in call and response form.

It is not a performance, but rather a union or merging of individuals into an energetic whole. It can be high energy, or slow and meditative.

Through our voices, intention and energy we move out of the head and into the heart space, cultivating love, awareness and presence.

No experience necessary! Come for the whole time, or just drop in.

Cost: Cash donation

*Proceeds donated to ‘Red Cross Australia’ and ‘Wildlife Victoria’ to support victims of the bushfires.

Chai and vegan treats available!

help centre and ground you, you will experience a deep
sense of relaxation from the very beginning.

Each yin asana will be paired with a specific affirmation
for you to internally repeat and contemplate throughout

of self inquiry that takes you well beyond the physical and
into the emotional, mental and spiritual layers.

With longer physical holds (7 minutes plus), you will be
supported with props to encourage deeper physical,
emotional, mental and spiritual shifts.

As you merely create shapes with your body, the power of
this practice is the insight you gain and the energetic
blockages you unconsciously release.
