This is a special invitation to come and connect with community for Summer Solstice. A 2 hour dose of heart medicine including Yin Yoga, Sound & Heart Meditation.

Some are calling 21 December 2020 the Great Celestial event of 2020. On our longest day of the year planets Jupiter and Saturn will be aligning in the skies for the first time since 2000 and will be the closest they’ve been since 1623. Whatever it is astronomically & astrologically, after the year 2020 has been this is really just a reminder for us to gather in intentional heart centred spaces to remember our shared humanity.

Heart connected slowness at it’s best, you can expect:
☼ Time with heart centred community to honour and acknowledge the special transition occurring in the skies
☼ Postures with a special focus on connecting to and embracing the wisdom of the heart and pure light of consciousness as we celebrate the longest day of the year
☼ Periods of stillness, movement, silent contemplation, group reflections and sharing
☼ Heart centred meditation to bring greater coherence to your nervous system and alignment with your intuition
☼ Gentle music and soundscape provided by local handpan specialist Euegene McGrath

With so much chaos and fear running through our global community, taking intentional time to prioritise heart connections and community is so important.

Yoga studies from a medical perspective have for many years found breath-related yoga practices can calm the autonomic nervous system, naturally reducing stress hormones in the body and helping to bring greater focus and clarity of the mind. Something very special also happens when we bring this practice into a group setting, cultivating an attitude of compassion and gratitude we increase harmony, connectedness, stability and a sense of inner resilience.

Come join Lani and Eugene for this special Summer Solstice offering. Bookings required or for more information contact Lani on 0434 748 758.

Due to current restrictions under covid-19 please bring with you a towel to cover your mat (or your own mat) and a blanket for the final relaxation.

The sound of the Hang has been described as being both ancient and futuristic in equal measure. The beauty of this instrument is in the harmonics which gives it a kind of mystical quality that most listeners find hard to resist.

Eugene Mcgrath Eugene studied piano for a few years in his early teen years, but his interest in music began more seriously in 1995 when he was inspired by a friend to start learning to play the African Djembe. So began a period of intensive informal study of  traditional African  drumming from various cultures including Senegal, Ghana, Ivory Coast,  Mali and  Zimbabwe.

He was a forming member of the West Australian Music industry (W.A.M.I) nominated drumming group  Deredjeff  Dubar, and also played in the Village Vibes Marimba band for several years. Through the years Eugene developed an interest in all the different world drumming / rhythm cultures, and has spent time studying the drumming traditions from Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Middle East.  In 1998 he began teaching drumming to individuals and groups enjoying the process of sharing what he had learnt and helping to inspire others to embark on their own journey into the joys of rhythm.

In 2001 Eugene moved to Melbourne to study Audio Engineering at JMC Acadamy, and returned to Perth in 2003 setting up a home recording studio, and has been involved in producing a number of C.D’s for local musicians since this time.

In 2006, Eugene was a forming member of the world music trio ElectricKoraland, which created 2 C.D’s of original ambient and groove based tracks that led to consecutive W.A.M.I nomination’s in 2008/09  and a subsequent successful tour of European festivals.

Whilst in Switzerland during this tour, Eugene was lucky to be in a position to meet the makers of the Hang drum and subsequently purchase one of their instruments. Since then he has enjoyed learning and playing this endlessly enchanting instrument, and exposing its exotic sounds to new audiences. 

Since this time Eugene has focused on the Hang drum and more recently, other similar steel  instruments which are now known collectively as Handpans,  and has developed his own repertoire of original music which he enjoys playing in a variety of settings , ranging  from sound healing sessions to performing solo and with other musicians.
