Kundalini Yoga Group
Bath Kundalini Yoga Meetup
6pm - 7:30pm


• What we'll do

Healing, from the perspective of Kundalini Yoga, is different from curing. Curing is removing the illness, problem, or issue. Healing means to make whole. A person who is healed may also have an illness or disease.

When your body is in rhythm with infinite consciousness, there is health, or ease. When this rhythm is lost, there is dis-ease. Understanding the art of healing in this way allows you to feel liberated and whole throughout your life, even as you encounter times of both conventional health and illness. In tomorrow’s group, we will do a kriya focusing on developing our own healing abilities as well as a simple but powerful meditation for self- Healing.

I will give a brief introduction to Kundalini Yoga and then guide the group through a warm- up, a set of physical postures (called a kriya), a long relaxation and a meditation. There is a breakout area available for socialising afterwards and I will be around to answer any questions you may have.

• What to bring
Please bring a yoga mat if you have one, but don’t worrry- there will be spares. Also bring a light blanket and / or extra layers to keep you cosy during the long relaxation. There is a £5 contribution requested for this class.

• Important to know
Kundalini Yoga is a very fun and uplifting practise which supports you to relax, to improve your fitness and to connect more deeply with yourself. Absolute beginners are most welcome to this group.

Bath Self-Empowerment Book Club

Hi Everyone :)

The two books to choose from for next month are The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod and/or The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo. I'm mindful the Easter break is coming up soon so if you don't have time to read one of these don't worry - you may want to just read a precis online to give you a general idea of the main themes. Thanks to Richard for the great suggestions!

Looking forward to seeing you all on the 4th - newcomers always welcome :)

Warmly

THE FILM CLUB Clouds of Sils Maria
The Film Club
7:30pm - 9:45pm


Details
This is a new group. Please read about its aim in What we're about. To find it click on blue The Film Club above.

Clouds of Sils Maria (116 mns), starring Juliette Binoche, is on the BBCiplayer until Monday, 26 March. It's a multi-layered film with a lot of insights into life and human nature, thus lending itself to a variety of interpretations. Here are some aspects of the film we can comment on:

The relationship between the characters in the story, those in the play and between the story and the play:
Helena and Maria
Sigrid and Maria
Val and Maria
other characters

The way people 'use' each other.

Parallels between the main story and the story in the play.

The relationship between past and future.

What do you make of the very different responses from Maria and Val to the futuristic film in the spaceship?

At the end Maria seems to cope well after Val goes. Do you agree? What about Helena in the play?

The person vs the actor.

Which character(s) do you find more intriguing?

What's the symbolism of the Maloja Snake, if any?

Please bring up any other aspects of the film you found interesting.

In one sentence, what would you say the film is ultimately about?
Free Meditation & Yoga – just show up–we start on Wednesday in Bath 7.30pm
Free Meditation & Yoga Bath
7:30pm - 9pm


Introduction

-
Hello there! - We'd like to welcome you to Free weekly meetings hosted by Michael, Bernard which take place at the:

John Williams Room (2nd Floor), United Reformed Church Halls, Grove St, Bath, BA2 6PJ,

on Wednesday evenings from 7.30pm until 9.00pm

With Sahaja Yoga Meditation we normally sit on chairs to achieve yoga, effortlessly & spontaneously. No Mats or special clothing required.

All across the globe, many are seeking new sources of energy. Meanwhile, the most transformative energy of all is hiding in plain sight, within us. It's natural, sustainable, and infinitely renewable. It's called inner kundalini energy. And everyone already has it — everyone!. It is often likened to an inner feminine or motherly energy which automatically knows about us and what is needed to help us restore balance and harmony within our subtle being. It works spontaneously, effortlessly, organically and cannot be paid for.

Sahaja Yoga Meditation is a simple time-honoured technique that lets you tap into that energy and harness its power to become better balanced and better connected to yourself — emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually.

If you're having trouble juggling the challenges in your life, Sahaja Yoga Meditation might well help you manage stress, master your emotions and find solutions to your problems. You may enjoy better health, better focus, and a deeper understanding of the universe and your place in it.

Meditation is not just for mystics and monks. Sahaja Yoga meditation is for everyone. Anyone can do it. It's that easy. But with the Sahaja Yoga experience, you'll quickly realise, it isn't your typical Meditations 'R Us type class. It's much more than just feeling peaceful and relaxed. Sahaja Yoga Meditation has many layers, varied and deep. Explore at your own pace, in your own way. Our volunteer experts are always available to help.

Ready to plug into your inner energy? A Sahaja Yoga Meditation class is a great way to start. A few minutes of your life may be all it takes to connect to your inner energy and light the path to lifelong transformation. Sahaja Yoga is more than a temporary solution or quick relief — it is a journey, rather than a destination. It's all about energy — guaranteed pure and carbon neutral. You can never have too much of it.

The best part? All classes are free. No strings, no catch.
Everyone is welcome. Bring a friend, bring your self — all are welcome.

We have a web site here in London too which you can visit for more info about weekly meetings: www.sahajayogalondon.co.uk

ABOUT THE COURSE
Exploring What Matters is a secular, science-based course for people who want to learn how to live happily and spread happiness to those around them.
It was created by the Action for Happiness charity to help people tune in to what really matters in life, connect with people around them and find small ways to start taking action.
On the course you will:


Meet with like-minded people to explore what really matters in life and find new ways of looking at things.


Enjoy expert videos, mindfulness exercises and a handbook full of resources to help you break big ideas into manageable chunks.


Take time each week to think of small actions you can take to create happiness for yourself and those around you.


People find it really valuable and often refer to what they learn on the course as life-changing.
-- Click here to see the impact of the course and what people say about it --
Each week is based around a big question:
Week 1: What really matters in life? We'll explore whether a greater focus on happiness and wellbeing might be better for all of us.
Week 2: What actually makes us happy? We'll explore the role of outer circumstances and inner attitudes in our wellbeing.
Week 3: Can we find peace of mind? We'll explore some of the skills and practices that can help us in difficult times.
Week 4: How should we treat others? We'll explore how to treat others and how we can become more compassionate.
Week 5: What makes for great relationships? We'll explore how our relationship to others impacts our own happiness.
Week 6: Can we be happier at work? We'll explore what makes us happy at work and what can we do about it.
Week 7: Can we build happier communities? We'll explore how to create communities that are more caring, connected and happy.
Week 8: How can we create a happier world? We'll explore how to live in a way that contributes to a happier world, not just for ourselves but for others too.

WHO THE COURSE IS FOR
This course is for anyone interested in exploring how to create happiness for themselves or others.
Maybe you’re someone who could do with some new approaches to try out in your own life.
Or maybe you’re passionate about creating happier communities and a happier world.
Either way, by coming together with others locally on this course you can find the inspiration and support you need find the actions that work for you.
Please note: this course is not group therapy, if you are experiencing severe challenges at the moment we recommend seeking alternative professional support.

HOW IT WORKS
The course is run by keen volunteers who are stepping forward to help spread happiness in the local area.
Everyone who joins the course makes a donation of their choice to be there.
It costs Action for Happiness about £90 per person to support each course so we ask all participants to give whatever they can to support themselves and others.
You can give as Supporter (£120) or give the Standard (£90) if you are able, otherwise please give whatever donation works for you - even if you can only give £5 right now you’re as welcome as anyone else :)


What are the highlights of the course?
“Sharing and learning from each other allowed us space to grow and taking away action plans each week focused our minds on pro active action.” ~ Jacqueline, London
“More or less everything is a highlight as it is mightily well researched and factual.” ~ Annick, Lindfield
“Being able to believe that I could be brave enough to change my circumstances/life, in order to be happier/make others happier around me.” ~ Michelle, Farnborough
