WINTER SOLSTICE YIN + NIDRA
with Jess Tanhchareun
SATURDAY 18TH JUNE | 3:00PM-5:30PM
A long, luxurious deep-dive into yin, yoga nidra and meditation, to attune your body and energy to the natural flow of the seasons.
As nights grow longer, days grow colder, and darkness peaks, the season of winter invites us into a cosy chrysalis of creative gestation, ripe for retreat, reflection and rest. What happens when we lean IN, embrace our inner winter, and go WITH the flow of the seasons? Discover the potency of rest as a sacred inward descent to dreams and intuition, and key to reclaiming our wholeness, clarity and vitality.
Join Jess in this 2.5 hour winter solstice workshop, as we journey through:
*Embodied exploration of winter from the perspectives of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Celtic tradition, and astrology.
*Yoga Nidra – a deep relaxation known as “yogic sleep”
Aluna: a journey to save the earth
FRIDAY 29 JULY | 7:15PM-9:00PM
COST: Free, or cash donation for Sea Shepherd
ALUNA STORYLINE – The Kogi once traded with Maya and Aztecs. Their civilization still survives hidden on Colombia’s highest mountain. They believe they are guardians of the world. Their leaders are trained from infancy in darkness to work by connecting with ‘aluna’, a cosmic consciousness. They perceive ‘black lines’ that connect special sites essential to life. In 1990, convinced that we were destroying the earth, they sent a warning through a British film-maker and then withdrew. They have now concluded that we cannot have grasped the warning and they have to explain it better if the world is to survive. So they recalled the film-maker and instructed him to film their demonstration of these connections, using 400km of gold thread.
*Screening starts at 7.30pm. Popcorn will be available before and during the film for a donation.

FRIDAY 27th MARCH
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!
