Gayatri Mantra

Om Bhur Bhuvah Swah

Tat Savitur Varenyam

Bhargo Devasya Dhimahi

Dhiyo Yonah Prachodayat

The Gāyatrī Mantra, also known as the Sāvitrī mantra, is dedicated to Savitur, the sun god.  The sun in the mantra represents both the physical sun and the Divine in all things.  It is believed that there is no separation between the physical presence of the sun and the spiritual or symbolic meaning.  Gāyatrī is the name of the Vedic meter in which the verse is composed.  It has a vedic metre of 24 syllables.

To give back to the sun (as the sun gives, without asking for anything in return).  To express gratitude to the sun (for the life-giving energies).  To meditate, and ask for illumination from the sun.

“ The eternal, earth, air, heaven
That glory, that resplendence of the sun
May we contemplate the brilliance of that light
May the sun inspire our minds. “

Thursday Meditation Class – Every first Thursday of the month

After many appreciated requests for a regular meditation class during the week (as not everybody will be able to attend the Sunday Morning monthly meditation workshop), I’m excited to offer you a monthly meditation class on the first Thursday of each month.

6th February

5th March

2nd April

7th May

4th June

6th August

3rd September

8th October

5th November

3rd December

This will be held right after our yoga class, from 11.15am to 12.15pm.  You can come for the double (yoga and meditation) or just for one. Cost is $25 or class pass.

It is my mission to allow you to have a pleasant meditation experience.  Meditation is joyful and do-able by everybody.

The emphasis in this class in on experiencing, exploring and allowing. The benefit of meditation lies in the practice, in the doing and exploring. Not so much in the technique. This class also serves the need of the community, as it becomes more obvious through my work in yoga, coaching and healing, that the ability of becoming present, staying focused, clear thinking, calming and slowing our thinking is an essential life skill to have. One that can’t be learned from a book, one that has to be practiced and experienced. Preferably with permissive guidance.

Be curious, allow yourself to open up to your full potential.

Learn and experience the ART OF MEDITATION in a natural environment, with like-minded people, with an open heart and a curious mind. With me and my experience and wisdom. I’m happy to share and explore with you.
See you on those dates.

This is a casual class and does not require booking.
