Workshop with George McFaul

From Seeds to the Sun – an exploratory workshop journey of the Bija Mantras, the Neuroendocrine system, the Chakras, the evolution of movement, and the Sun Salutation

For a long time now the universe has been germinating in your spine…

Our time together in this workshop will be an enquiry into listening to your greatest teacher: your own embodied awareness. The practice will begin with opening the doors to vibration through the ‘Om orchestra’ and the Bija (seed) Mantras. Along the way we will sense, feel and act from the Chakras and their Neuroendocrine (glandular) counterparts. Yum.

Once nicely warmed up and primed for listening and moving from within, we will experience ‘moving savasana’, as a doorway to re-membering the developmental movement patterns that have led you, and your species, to evolve from your watery home as oscillating cells to become the upright bipeds you are, finally able to stand on your own two feet. This exploration will eventually, in this lifetime or another, lend its intelligence and expression in your version of Surya Namaskar. And there you are.

Tada drastuh svarupe avasthanam (Then, the Seer rests in its own True Splendour).

We will complete the workshop with a guided Yoga Nidra experience of the seeds of longing (Sankalpa) that are germinating in every part of being you.
