A weekend retreat exploring the secrets of mudra or subtle gestures which can beneficially alter our mood, attitude or perception and catalyse a deepening of awareness.
Tutor(s): Tulsi and Swami Nishchalananda
The Kularnava Tantra describes mudras as 'that which brings happiness'.
The Sanskrit translation of mudra is 'gesture' or 'attitude'. Also known as energetic shortcuts or circuit by-passes, they create a bridge between the physical body, the mental body, and the energy body, harmonising or balancing our sense of self. Furthermore, through the redirection of awareness and prana/ energy, they lead us to pratyahara (sense withdrawal) and deeper states of concentration, even meditation.
In this weekend course we will use the practices of asana, pranayama, meditation and yoga nidra to explore selected hasta (hand) mudras, mana (head) mudras, and kaya (postural) mudras. The course will also include Satsang (question and answer) on Saturday afternoon. The mudras you learn on the course will then be yours to practice at home.

Saturday 8th: 7.30-9am, 10-11.30am, 12-12.30pm, 2.30- 4pm. 4.30-5.30pm
