"The truth about our childhood is 
stored up in our body, and although
we can repress it, we can never 
alter it. Our intellect can be 
deceived, our feelings manipulated,
our perceptions confused, and our 
body tricked with medication. But 
someday, the body will present its 
bill, for it is incorruptible as a 
child who, still in whole spirit, 
will accept no compromises or 
excuses, and it will not stop 
tormenting us until we stop evading
the truth."
Alice Miller, Psychologist and author

On a recent trip to Berlin, staying at a friend's flat I was greeted unexpectedly by a paper airplane one morning on the balcony. It was sweet and surprising considering that my friends live on the top floor of a mansion block. It seemed like a reminder to me to play and a message from a far off place I seemed to have forgotten.

I have to admit that my own energy or life-force has felt stuck for a while now, like I have forgotten what real happiness is somehow; and then today something lifted, something magic happened and I can feel that balance and renewal and creative energy are stirring once again. Sometimes this new energy can come so unexpectedly like the paper airplane arriving as if from nowhere.

So my urge to share this here and to remind you all to keep the faith and to keep striving towards health and vitality, balance and renewal. They are such precious commodities during these shifting times.

"Because of the interrelatedness of all things, the physical body can be seen as a reflection of the mind. Therapy can be body-centered in the sense of using the body as a royal road to the unconscious." Johanson and Kurtz

Yoga & Meditation with Angelika at YOGA PLACE: Saturday 5th March, 3pm to 5pm

How can I slow down?

How can I bring more stability into my life?

How can I be less affected by life's constant demands?

How can I simply enjoy the lightness of being?

This day will include some simple practical HATHA YOGA to open the body and prepare it for sitting, followed by simple Pranayama (breathing techniques) to prepare the mind for sitting and stillness, concluding with an introduction to SIMPLE MEDITATION TECHNIQUES. This is an introduction to the very practical and effective method of meditation in the style of the HIMALAYAN TRADITION. This tradition employs relaxation, focus on the breath and very simple universal mantra techniques to lead the student towards a still, clear and relaxed mind. £20 for your first session, by donation for all subsequent sessions. Experience: Open to all, no previous experience necessary.
