Our Moon Circles were created with the intention to be an evening spent in community and energetic collaboration. If you would like to contribute to the evening’s circle, we’d love that! Past contributions have included movement (non-yogic) and breathwork. If you are interested in contributing, please email our Studio Manager, Daniela.
Sound & Voice Mediation is inspired by traditional ancient practices originating from temples of Hindu & Sikh faiths; a communal gathering where the repetition of meaningful Sanskrit mantras brings participants into a state of body mind soul connection, in communion with the divine. This Kirtan session can be described as a therapeutic practice using breath-work, somatic mediation and simple Sanskrit Mantras, some English lyrics, in a singular vocal expression, one voice together connecting us to the sky and earth for grounding and release. This allows participants to deeply connect to themselves and others to release, express and manifest. Repetitive chants help connect participants to their own voice and act as a therapeutic tool to soothe the mind and emotions.Devaki will be joined by her partner and Shala teacher, Thomas. Devaki and Thomas are life/music partners of 36 years from Canada and Trinidad now long-time South East Londoners.Devaki is a multi-disciplinary artist and Movement Psychotherapist and Thomas is a musician/song-writer/music producer/Yoga teacher.The 2 met in the Hare Krishna faith in the 80’s where Kirtan was practiced 4 hours/day and Devaki’s father was a world-renowned Kirtan leader.
Cacao does contains a small amount of caffeine. As such, we recommend you do NOT drink any stimulants, including COFFEE, at least 3 hours before the moon circle.
Bring a water bottle with you and be sure to drink plenty of water both before and after the moon circle.
We also recommend that you do not eat for at least three hours prior to the ceremony to support your body to take in and absorb the cacao for ceremony.
