July Newsletter – Discourse & Meditation, Crystal Guidance Workshop, Yoga Retreat

image

Namaste

As we move through the winter months we have plenty on offer to feed the soul.  The studio flickers with candle light and soft lighting in the evening classes to create a cosy vibe.  We have beautiful Yak Wool blankets in the shop to wrap yourselves up in on these cold nights and Yak Wool slippers.  The proceeds of these go to the Change A Life Journey Nepal Relief Fund.

Lovely to see the excited faces at the Tarot Workshop and thought it would be nice to offer on-going mini Tarot Workshops – maybe bi-monthly?  This would be a chance to practice readings and explore the Tarot in more depth in bite size pieces.  Let me know if you are keen.

Shop:   crystals, incense holders, essential oils, soy candles, oil lamps, mood lamps, books, malas, bracelets and new pendants from Jewel Rapture are all in stock.  Plus …… Yoga Mats (including eco ones) ….. much nicer to use your own; good quality and reasonably priced too.

Sri Guru Parvati Sundari

Discourse and Meditation – with blessings and music

Wednesday July 22nd

7.00 -9.00 pm

Cost: Donation

image

Known as the Guru of Joy, and dubbed by Maha Guru Sri Shakti Durga as a “a true force of nature” Parvati’s wisdom, grace and laughter make this a rare opportunity for a close encounter with a Master Teacher and Healer. Her deep intuitive understanding of the conditions causing physical, mental and emotional ill health
allow her to facilitate rapid healing of core issues and to restore balance and joy in all aspects of life.

This will be a beautiful evening replete with musical accompaniment by Jyoshna La Trobe.

Offered by Donation.

Please Book.

 

 Crystal Guidance Workshop

– opening up your Crystal Awareness and Intuition.

Sunday 26 July

10.00 – 4.00pm

Cost: $85

Join Annie and Joanne Sullivan (Jewel Rapture) in a workshop exploring and understanding the healing properties of crystals.

Crystals resonate different energies and we are naturally drawn to those we need in our daily lives. So with this understanding we can use crystals as a form of divination, guidance and support.

This workshop will help you tap in to your intuition as we explore crystal combinations and energies. Whether you use the crystals for divination, or for healing and personal growth – this workshop will help you feel less overwhelmed when choosing crystals for yourself or others.

 

Plus – design, make and take home your own healing gemstone bracelet. We will have plenty of beautiful stones for you to create your intent.

Please book your space with Annie: whisperedsecretsyoga@gmailcom. Or Joanne: joannesullivan@gmail.com

Please book a plate for a shared lunch on the day 🙂

These winter months are the perfect time for a quick escape.  Last year Clare Etherton, who teaches the Tuesday & Friday morning classes, ran a wonderful weekend retreat at Mana in the Coromandel.  The morning ladies love her classes and are booked in for this year.
Contact Clare: clare@pranayoga.co.nz  for full details and to book your space.

 

Stay warm and would love your feedback of what you would like to see more of at Whispered Secrets.

June Events – Mantra – Gorgeousness – Tarot – Timetable Updates

image

Namaste

Thank you everyone who supported the Gift Basket for raising funds for Nepal and assume you are loving the wonderful Yak Blankets!!  There will be some more arriving in due course.  Leah has picked up the Gift Basket and it will be raffled at the fundraising auction at the end of the month.

The above post was on facebook recently and I thought it appropriate for this months’ newsletter as the mantra for your 40 day mantra meditation is: OM MANI PADME OM which according to Thomas Ashley-Farrand (author of Mantra Meditation) when chanted all of humanity are benefitted.  So a way to dedicate our meditations to benefit those affected by the recent earthquake in Nepal.

Extract from: http://www.yowangdu.com/tibetan-buddhism/om-mani-padme-hum.html

“This mantra naturally comes to our hearts in any kind of difficult situation. 

Many people recite the mantra thousands of times in a day as part of their daily prayer practice. We also print it on prayer flags that blow the prayer to the winds, carve it on stones, and insert papers printed with it inside holy statues and in prayer wheels. Almost all Tibetans recite the prayer, even though many of us don’t know the meaning.”

image

OM MANI PADME HUM – The Jewel in the Heart of the Lotus

This mantra evokes the heart of the Buddha of Compassion, Chenrezig, and expresses compassions’ universal energy that turns: suffering into bliss, evil to goodness, darkness to light.

Visualise a jewelled wheel spinning in your heart as you extend compassion to all sentient beings.

The lotus flower is a symbol of the compassionate, enlightened mind.  Mani means jewel (method). Padme means lotus (wisdom).

By uniting method and wisdom we purify our body, speech and mind.

Chant mantra 108 times a day for 40 days 🙂

Yin Yoga Workshop

with Amber Wilson

image

Amber has trained with some of the most respected Yin Yoga teachers and will be sharing her expertise on Yin Yoga in two yoga classes.  If you have never done a Yin Class, or would like to know more about why this practice is so beneficial – then this is an excellent starting point.

Amber will be focussing on two key areas.

With 80% of the Western World experiencing some form of chronic back pain in their lifetime, greater awareness is needed in how to maintain health in this core region of our body. The first workshop will look at how to safely work with the spine to illict the bodys’ natural healing response and counteract effects of deterioration and degeneration. In the second workshop we will look at the subtle body and learn the path of the kidney meridian – working with specific Yin poses that stimulate Qi flow to draw refined energy to the deepest layers of our body. The kidneys, described in Chinese medicine as the ‘root of life’, will replenish all the organs of the body when balance and health are maintained.

Saturday 23 May 2.00 – 4.00pm Spine Series
Sunday 24 May 11.00 – 1.00pm Kidney Series

$40 per day, or $72 for both days.

Easter Timetable & April News & Workshops

Namaste

And a big thank you to every who contributed and joined us on our CHAKRA JOURNEY.  The studio glowed with your beautiful energies and the effects have lingered through the week 🙂  If you missed out there are plenty of crystals available in the shop…why not make your own Healing Crystal Chakra Set?  Plus some great Chakra Books & Oracle Decks.

If you would like some of the awesome HardTail Yoga Wear before our next event at the end of the year – you can contact Laurie directly and schedule an appointment at her premises in Ponsonby: Email: lauriehardtailnz@xtra.co.nz

 

Easter Class Schedule

The Studio is closed Thursday night (no 6pm TLC) – yes – there is a 9.30am and 12.00pm class on Thursday morning.

Good Friday – closed

Easter Saturday – 9.00am Yin Yoga Class and 11.00am Reiki Share Group

Easter Sunday – closed

Easter Monday -just a morning class @ 9.30am

 

Reiki Share Group

Saturday 4 April  11.00 – 1.00pm

Cost: $25

 

This monthly group is open to anyone interested in energy healing and no experience is necessary.  This month I will be introducing you to the amazing Auralite 23 Crystal.  This beautiful stone is the deepest amethyst and so much more!  Described as the “One Stone to Rule them All” – it will be the perfect stone to help you tune in and expand your awareness. Sourced from Canada from the ‘Cave of Wonders’ this crystal is about 1.2 billion years old, so calming and said to act as a bridge between the worlds.

This is a photo of my Isis one – with loads of triangular etchings. These naturally formed etchings are records which means within them are records of past, present and potential future realities.

 

image

This powerful stone carries 23 minerals in its matrix and its story is well worth the read. Here’s a link: http://www.appealingenvironments.com/auralite.html

The name Auralite-23 is derived from the miracle of earth and sky connections – The Northern Aurora Borealis Lights – called by the Native American Indians as “The Dancing of the Spirits.”

 

Rune Workshop

Sunday 26 April

11.00 – 4.00pm

Cost: $45

 

I love my set of Runes and thought it about time that we re-visited the Rune Workshop especially as the Runes are ‘the Whispered Secrets of the Universe’ and yes – the inspiration for the studio name: Whispered Secrets.  They are an ancient form of writing from the Norse culture and are steeped in nature as the people of Northern Europe led lives dominated by the elemental forces of wind, sun, ice and rain.

This will be a very interactive workshop as you will be painting the glyphs onto your stones, learning how to cast the runes, then will be giving and receiving readings.

Thirty stones are required to make up your kit. You may choose to select flat stones or pebbles from the beach, maybe a branch sawn into rondelles, stones from the local garden centre, or crystals. My set in the drawstring pouch are mangano calcite.

If you would like me source certain crystals for you – let me know. And we now have drawstring pouches available in the shop.

Please book your space and pay in advance to secure your spot: whisperedsecretsyoga@gmail.com

I wrote the following article for Bev Edwards (Shekina) March Newsletter http://myemail.constantcontact.com/Moving-forward-into-March-with-gratitude-.html

I hope you enjoy 🙂

I will catch you when you fall

Yoga is about you – ‘You-ga’ and finding the connection to your own essence through the magic of your body and breath.

The ancient practice of yoga has been around for thousands of years. The Rishi’s (Sages) who formulated its system were guided by the science of the body: the physical, the subtle layers, the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of ourselves. Today modern science can prove much of what the Rishis knew – that our body is really an amazing record keeper of our lives; retaining memories, karma, mental and emotional knots deep into its layers.

“What is Yoga? Space in my body” – Mother

Your yoga mat is your invitation to stop and become aware of you, the messages and wisdom layered through the body to connect with the pure cosmic energy flowing through.

Our doorway in – is the breath. Breath is life- prana/energy/life force. The practice of pranayama (breathing exercises) is said to be the art and science of discovering the Soul. It’s like opening all the windows of your house to let fresh air in – clearing out stale, stagnant energy.

The sole intention of the practice is to bring the body and mind to a place of stillness. Whether your yoga journey is strong and dynamic, or slow and steady, the destination is the same – Samadi – bliss beyond all that is – oneness and wholeness.

There is no rush – enjoy the journey. Find the teacher and method that you resonate with and start a journey of transformation.

“My mat is a safe place. I’ll go into Child’s pose or I’ll simply sit on it and cry. It’s my rock. Yoga has made a big difference.” Asley Judd

Chakra Journey & Mantra Transformation

 NAMASTE

CHAKRA JOURNEY

SATURDAY 21 MARCH

12.00 – 4.00pm

Our big event this month is Saturday 21 March when you have an opportunity to experience and indulge in all aspects of the Chakras.  We are transforming the studio in to a mass of colours, aromas and all things chakras.  Plus a full complement, colour and new stock from the awesome Hard Tail Yoga Wear.

I will be posting the agenda for the free talks and contact details for our readers and therapists so that you can pre-book 🙂

REIKI SHARE GROUP

we are back – the first Saturday of each month from 11.00 – 1.00pm

image

Reiki and Energy healing is  accessible to all – in these monthly sessions we will work on developing intuitive skills and different methods of working with energy healing.  No experience is necessary – it is about tapping in, fine tuning and enhancing your innate healing abilities in a safe and supported environment.

Join us:

Saturday 7 March

11.00 – 1.00pm

Cost: $25

MANTRA TRANSFORMATION

I thought it would be interesting to invite you to use mantra/chanting as a way to manifest the life you want.  The word mantra is Sanskrit – from the two words: manas (mind) and trai (to protect or, to free from).

Mantra meditation has been used for thousands of years to:

‘reduce karma and to attune our minds, bodies, and spirits to the various invisible energies that exist in the universe.’

(Mantra Meditation: Thomas Ashley-Farrand)

image

Ideally it would be perfect to sit in a quiet space where you can be undisturbed and chant the mantra 108 times.  However, why not try it in the car, taking a walk, or doing mundane chores.

There are many mantras for many different aspects: healing mantras, relationship mantras, spiritual growth and for good luck and abundance.

I invite you to try the Forty-Day approach and chant the following mantra once a day 108 times.  A significant result should be achieved – be aware that if halfway through distractions, work or family issues appear that this could be your karma fighting through – it doesn’t want you to change ingrained habits!

Your Mantra:

Om Gum Shrim Maha Lakshmiyei Swaha

Let all obstacles to my abundance be eliminated and the flow of the shakti of abundance be released within me.

Repeat the mantra 108 times a day for a period of 40 days.  If you miss even a day – sorry – you have to go back to day one!  If you have a mala – perfect – otherwise (like me before my mala days) – fingers.

I would love your feedback.  The mantra should take about 5 – 7 minutes to chant and then it is good just to sit for the same length of time and enjoy the energy of the mantra flowing through your body.

For further information: the book – Mantra Meditation by Thomas Ashley-Farrand –  is a great starting point.

YOUR BODY speaks your MIND

WORKSHOP with JANINE GADDIE

 

image

 

SUNDAY 22 FEBRUARY

1.00 – 4.00pm

Cost: $45

This informative workshop is booking up quickly!

Your Body speaks your Mind and yet we are often unaware of the messages our body is showing us.

Come and join Janine for a workshop where we bring light to our emotional anatomy, exploring the body mind connection, energy centres/chakras and yoga.

This workshop is an invitational enquiry into how the mind and body form a unified, interconnected and intelligent network. As we explore the science and delve into emotional anatomy, we bring to light our internal landscape of thoughts and feelings and their evolving impact on our physiology. With newfound awareness, these principles form an integral part of yoga, healing and expression.

Janine will help you to understand:

– What happens to thoughts and feelings in the body chemically

– Why the mind and body are not separate

– How we process experiences at a cellular level

– Energy centres in the body

– How pain, posture, tension and dis-ease can have an emotional charge.

Janine is a psychosomatic therapist and healer based in Auckland, guiding others to understand how the mind and body are not separate and how thoughts and emotions manifest physically. Through a process facilitating embodiment and increased awareness, we can return to a state of homeostasis where healing and growth happen innately.

Please book your space: whisperedsecretsyoga@gmail.com or text: 021 379 286

and please bring your yoga mat, notebook and pen 🙂
