18 - 23 September Yoga Grape Harvest & Autumn Equinox with Ben Rakidzija & Evening-Marie The Symbolic Connection between Yoga, Grapes & Wine Grapes and wine are an ancient symbol of fertility, joy, healing and vitality. Wine represents the" Blood of Life" and the alchemical process of infusing the creative, intoxicating spirit into matter. Wine is used in the sacred rites of many civilizations, representing the presence of the Divine Spirit on earth. Yoga, like grapes and wine, offers a powerful pathway to leading a joyful, healthy, fertile lifestyle and the practice itself, which offers us a direct connection to the Divine within ourselves, can be quite an intoxicating experience, indeed! Wednesday & Thursday 21 & 22 September - Autumn Equinox & Global Mala Celebration In conjunction with this week's yoga & grape harvesting theme, we will also celebrate the Autumn Equinox, which cooincides with the Global Mala event taking place at yoga studios and retreats around the world. A Mala is a string of beads used for mantra or prayer repetition and even protection, and the purpose of the Global Mala is to unite the global yoga community from every continent in the world, to form a human mala around the earth, through collective intentions and practices based upon the sacred cycle of 108. Led by Evening Marie each year since 2007, this magical and memorable event will involve yoga, chanting, prayer & meditation that we will do in honor of harvesting joy, healing, unity and peace on a personal and global level.

The word "Soshin" is from Japanese and means "beginners mind". It reminds us how it is to be a beginner, open-minded, devoteld, and with the absence of prejudice. With a beginners mind we can feel very good, whether we do Yoga for the first time or maybe just recently. It helps us to be more relaxed, hold poses more strongly and to be more open-minded toward others as well as ourself. During the yoga sadhana, we will get in touch with classic yoga poses, gain insight into Yin Yoga and begin our day with Zen Meditation. At the end of the week, we will celebrate the Global Mala, where we will connect with Yogis and Meditators around whole world in a state of unity. The beginners mind will help us.
