Cultivating Heartfulness – a daylong yoga and meditation workshop with Peter Fernando and Lynda Miers-Henneveld.

At times the experiences of our lives can be challenging, or even overwhelming. Losing touch with our heart’s capacity for openness, happiness and ease, we can fall prey to our own energies of fear, self-criticism and doubt.

The direct, embodied practices of kindness, compassion, joy and equanimity offer us a way of consciously connecting with the powerful resource of openness in our own hearts, and give us tools for cultivating our ability to respond to ourselves, others and the experiences of life from a place of genuine caring and inner strength.

Known in Buddhism as the 'Sublime Abidings' or 'Four Immeasurables', these four qualities of the open heart - loving-kindness, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity - can be found in both Buddhist and Yogic teachings, and have for millennia been understood as the guiding light for living a life of wisdom, emotional well-being and benefit for others.

In this daylong workshop, we will explore how to bring these qualities into being in a heartful and embodied way, in the silence of our inner space and in the midst of our daily lives.

This workshop will consist of gentle yogic practices of asana, pranayama and mudra, and sessions of guided sitting meditation. If you have your own yoga mat or meditation cushion, please feel free to bring them.

There are also mats and props available at the venue.
