Weekly Meditation Workshop at the Forest5.30 - 7pm, Tuesdays
A free workshop, always open to all!

Yoga-Nidra means yogic sleep, its a dynamic state of conscious deep relaxation for balansing body, mind and spirit. During meditation the practitioner follows guided instructions of the teacher to experience the full effect of relaxation.

In Yoga-Nidra there are two main futures, deep relaxation-Nidra and on the other side positive intention-Sankalpa, a vital part of the meditation.This combination can change all your life around! When your rational mind is less active during the meditation your subconsciousness becomes more opened.That develops ideal ground for planting the seeds of your intention.

When the practitioner goes deeper into meditative state he is able to work more effectively with tensions, anxiety, sleeping problems, headaches, addictions, bad habits and able to relieve negative energy blocks. It also helps to increase motivation an develop deeper inner awarness, which results in more relaxed and balanced mind.

INKY FINGERS WORDLAB
27th March, 2 - 4pm - Bristo Hall 
a new series of workshops for writers and performers launching with an open session from ZORRAS!


“Poetry with Music and Film:
BEYOND RANDOM MULTIMEDIA”

Building on our hugely popular monthly open mic (fourth Tuesday) and 
writers’ groups (second Thursday), Inky Fingers is launching a new 
series of special free workshops, where the best of local and national 
writing and performing talent will be sharing their skills. Each month, 
one of our open mic feature performers will be running a workshop to 
stimulate your brains and help you expand the horizons of your writing 
and performance.

The series launches on March 27th with a session from the 
poetry-music-film fusion act Zorras, who’ve been taking bars, clubs, 
theatres and autonomous centres by storm since 2007 They’ll be working 
with you on looking at how different forms can work together, expanding 
the possibilities for poetry and performance, without just becoming 
“random multimedia”. This is an amazing opportunity to have a 
masterclass with some very special performers — and it’s totally free!
