Heroes on the Yogi’s Journey

Philosophy Classes

Friday 2nd & 23rd February, 2018
6:30pm – 8:30pm

This series of Philosophy evenings has been designed for anyone on the yoga journey, whether you’re a teacher with many years of experience, or a student just taking their first steps on the path.  It draws on specific examples from philosophy, mythology and yogic literature to inspire, uplift, and connect you to the most potent and powerful examples of strength and inspiration.

Join us as we explore and embody different aspects of the yogic path which will inform your practice, your classes, and your life as we learn from history’s most amazing teachers.

Philosophy Class 1: Heroes on the Yogi’s Journey
Throughout history, for thousands of years, Yogic texts have given us shining examples of heroic life – how to succeed, how to overcome challenges, how to be the best yogi and person we can be.  Together we’ll explore the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita and Hindu mythology to look at some of the most revered and idolised heroes, what they have to teach us, and how we can embody their most divine teachings.  This will be our introductory class where we will cover a broad view of historical heroes worth exploring.

Philosophy Class 2: Conversations with God in the Bhagavad Gita
In a love-starved world, the hidden message of love in the Bhagavad Gita is much needed.  We are all spiritual beings, entitled to rejoice in eternal love with the divine, but how can we keep that love uncontaminated by selfishness and misidentification with illusion?  The battlefield setting of the Gita calls all of us to become spiritual warriors and conquer the selfish lower self with the selfless higher self.

2nd Feb: Heroes on the Yogi’s Journey
23rd Feb: Conversations with God in the Bhagavad Gita
2nd March: The Trials and Triumphs of Garuda
9th March: Heroic figures of the Ramayana

Facilitating and Working with Groups
A Professional Development Workshop

with Andrew Mournehis

Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th February 2018
10.30am – 4.30pm

Inspired by the wonderful success and amazing feedback from this workshop in 2015, I am bringing it back with updated material and new information.  For those of you who have been asking for this – here it is!!

Group Dynamics can be extraordinarily healing, potent and powerful, and in some cases tricky, when managing a wide variety of energies.  Working with groups is both an art and a professional practice that takes time to refine, manage effectively and master to bring the greatest potential out of the group dynamic.

It requires many crucial skills to be able to powerfully hold space, create safe and trusting environments for deep transpersonal work, the ability to include and embrace all participants, remain centered during the 4 stages of group development and manage both the content of the group work and the energetic exchanges.

This workshop will be tailored specifically for those interested in working with groups and how to lead and facilitate groups of varying themes, such as:

 •    Healing or therapy groups
    •    Mentoring or supervision groups
    •    Teaching or classroom style facilitation
    •    Yoga, health or wellness groups, including teacher trainingsThe skills you learn here can be transposed and utilised with a mutitude of different types of groups.
The 2 day workshop will provide you with skills on:
    •    Safety, Trust, and Boundaries
    •    Powerfully Holding Space/Building Confidence
    •    The Power of Ritual/The Importance of Opening and Closing Rituals
    •    Practical Skills and Methodology in working with groups/Structure and Format
    •    Recognising the group process and understanding the 4 stages of group development
    •    The “Soul of the Group”
    •    Working with Difficult Participants
    •    Working with Multicultural/Religious considerations to maintain inclusion and cohesion
    •    Opportunities and Practice in facilitating both small and large groups
Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance and 10 PD hours.  

If you work with groups or aspire to, this is an opportunity not to be missed!!

Andrew Mournehis graduated from the Phoenix Institute of Australia in 2001 with a very clear vision that his gifts and passions were best directed in the power of group, story, archetype, ritual and the potent healing energy that is exchanged in each others stories, both personal and universal.

Being an already established yoga teacher, he has spent the past 16 years facilitating healing circles and groups, workshops, intensives, retreats both nationally and internationally working with the healing potential of Yoga and Transpersonal work. He was a lecturer and facilitator at Phoenix Institute of Australia, is currently at Ikon Institute, and is a leading specialist in group work.

MAHASHIVARATRI

Wednesday 14th February 2018

7pm – 10:30pm

Come celebrate The Great Night of Shiva! 

We’ll ecstatically evoke, honour and embody Shiva through an evening of Chanting, Sacred Dance, Embodied Storytelling and Guided Meditations. Shiva sits in meditation AND Shiva dances! 

Shiva is the Lord of Yogi’s and yogic practice. He is the Lord of Tantra. Shiva, the destroyer, can transmute any of the poisons of life into divine consciousness. 

MahaShivaratri is known as the most potent time of the year to worship Shiva. A night of auspicious boons for yogis. 

Worshiping Shiva invokes the experience of the vastness, the all consuming nature of space, all-pervading, omnipresent awareness, AND the lightning bolt like strike of awakening within the void, the transcendence of darkness and ignorance in ourselves and life, the sudden death and rebirth breakthroughs that are the fruit of yogic practice. 

This is a community celebration of Shiva. Tickets are a $20 donation and all profits go towards charity.

Please bring fruits, treats etc to share as Prasad, and any other sacred objects you’d like to charge on the altar and take home with you. Please wear clothes you’re comfortable to perform light dance movements in.

Om Namah Shivaya!

$20 donation
