The Connection Sessions - July
*NEW MOON SPECIAL*
Monday 1st July, 7-9pm
Thanks for stopping by to find out more about The Connection Sessions!
What are The Connection Sessions?
The Connection Sessions are a monthly event on the first Monday of every month, grown from a vision I had to create an experience with greater richness than can be offered in a normal yoga class, and that provides space for you to check in with where you're at on a regular basis.
Held in the beautiful and intimate Holdspace in Angel, it's an evening to come together in a small group, to connect inwards as well as with the community in the room. It's something of a retreat-vibe in an evening in London, working with a theme as a guide for our explorations. The evenings are an opportunity to take a moment to pause at the start of the month, reflecting on what's gone and setting intentions for the month to come. They're an opportunity to check in with where you're at and ask what you need. And also, importantly, they're an opportunity to come together in community with others.
Sessions vary according to energy at the time, but will likely involve meditation, journalling, a sharing circle (option to share or just listen) as well as embodied movement.
July's session falls on the cancer new moon: inspired by this, we'll look at how we put up barriers and how we can soften them, how we can nourish and support ourselves in this process, the physical practice will be more to the restorative end of things, this new moon placed at the centre of the calendar year is also a good time to review goals, to check in with any goals or intentions you set for 2019.
Reading up a little on this moon, the tone is one of soothing, of nourishing, of unwinding. The final line on the cancerian new moon in my moon book says 'Brilliance often follows unwinding' This resonates hugely for me. I am at my most creative and inspired following times of rest and restore. This feels particularly important at this midway point in the year - a time of busyness, high energy with the summer solstice - this session will help this energy to find a guide, a focus in the right direction
Expect journaling, reflection, stillness, and then the setting fire of our July intentions int he Holdspace garden :)
