About the class:
The Autumn Equinox in the northern hemisphere marks the mid-point between the warmer, lighter seasons of the year and the cooler, darker ones. The forces of day and night, light and dark are of equal strength. As such it is a great time to emphasize balance and harmony, both in our life and meditation practice.
It is also good time to attune the life-force in the earth and creative energies within ourselves. We will be taking the time to reflect and glean wisdom from the events of our year so far, and think about the autumn and winter periods that lie ahead of us. We will identify what our goals and expectations are, and sow the seeds on an inner level of the things that we wish to manifest over the next few months.
In the meditation, we will be journeying through the ‘Gateway of the West’ in order to connect to:
- The spiritual forces of the autumn
- The element of water & our deeper emotions
- Our own inner world healers, guides and protectors, receiving their gifts, wisdom & support for the last quarter of the year
Psychologically & energetically the autumn equinox is also a time when we get in touch with the mature, responsible or parental adult within ourselves, re-familiarizing ourselves with his/her energy & heal any blocks or imbalances within this vibrant aspect of our being.
Suitable for: Both beginners & more advanced practitioners of meditation & mindfulness. All are welcome!
