Sankalpa the Power Of Intention - New Year ReSOULution
With Margherita Dal Pra
1 January 2019, 11:30–14:30
£35 earlybird until 27 Dec, £40 thereafter
The end of a cycle and the beginning of a new one such as New Year, is usually the time for “resolution” towards something better. More often than not, these good intentions are set aside and we go back to our old ways.
We will explore the power of Sankalpa or “Heartfelt Intention”, a desire for change. Sankalpa isn’t just any intention, like losing 10 pounds in weight, it’s a guidance that comes from your unconscious mind and, revealed through listening to our inner wisdom, shed from events, emotions and thoughts that colour our perception. By allowing us to see clearly what we really seek, Sankalpa empowers us to move from intention to realisation.
This workshop we will:
- Learn the teaching of Sankalpa and the four essential human desires: meaning, prosperity, joy and freedom
- Practice asana sequences which explore our subtle bodies (where our deepest impressions are stored), breathing and meditation to support self-inquiry.
- Experience a guided process of meditation, self-reflection and journaling to reveal your Sankalpa.
- Learn and make a commitment to a 40 day sadhana (your practice) to empower your sankalpa and remind yourself of the intention we discovered during the workshop.
We will together contemplate how you would like to feel during the coming year. Is there any way you can reframe your results-oriented resolutions into something that will make this year’s journey more joyful and worthwhile? such as ‘May I be happy and open to what life brings me’.
Bring a notepad or journal and pen.
