Psychedelic Yoga: Yoga for the preparation, navigation & integration of the psychedelic experience.
The first Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Meditation of 2019 will take place on 5th Feb. The theme of this session is ‘Intention Setting’. We will explore how ‘intention’ which in yogic terms is called ‘Sankalpa’, can have a profound effect on transforming our daily lives and consequently the world around us. We will also focus on the benefit of setting intentions before taking part in a psychedelic experience and the ways in which this can significantly transform the experience itself.
Alongside postures, breathing techniques and philosophy, there will be a guided meditation focusing on our innermost heartfelt intentions for the forthcoming year.
The session will conclude with a 40 minute sound journey, created with 38” Sun Gong, shamanic drums, Tibetan singing bowls, hangdrum, flute, harmonica, ocean drum, shanti chimes, shruti box, loop station, mantras, overtone singing & medicine songs.
Doors open at 7:45pm for a 8:00pm start. The session lasts for 1hrs 45 mins. We invite you to join us for a cup of tea & social at the end of the session.
Yoga mats & blankets are provided.
Standard tickets are £18 / Concessions are £13
Unfortunately no tickets will be available on the door.
What is Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Meditation?
There are many parallels between the states of consciousness that can be reached through yoga & the psychedelic experience. In ‘Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Meditation’, we aim to equip participants with yogic techniques to prepare the body & mind for the psychedelic experience, whilst practicing tools which can assist in the navigation & integration of those experiences. Each session has a different theme & a guided sound meditation created for that theme. The ‘sound meditation’ is designed to enable participants to journey within, facilitating enhanced states of consciousness. Participants will be guided through processes to enable them to develop deeper connections with themselves & one another. Sessions will include postures, breathing techniques, mantras, mudras, philosophy, meditation & sound, in a supportive, fun & friendly environment.
The yoga postures & meditation techniques are drawn from a wide range of disciplines and can be practiced by all levels of ability.
Psychedelic Yoga & Sound Meditation was created by Jamie & Phil from Infinite Spirit Sounds, in association with The Psychedelic Society.
The session will be led by Phil who has practised yoga and meditation since 1971. He has studied in the UK and India with the Ramakrisha Vedanta Centre, the Shivananda Yoga Vedanta Centre, the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order and the Rigpa Organisation. He has also trained in ‘dream song’ with the Yoga Nidra network.
Jamie is a qualified sound healer & gong practitioner, who has trained with gongmaster Sheila Whittaker, the College of Sound Healing & Jill Purce. He works with sound & meditative techniques to invoke & facilitate enhanced states of consciousness for healing.
