Spirit Gathering 2018
Warmly welcome to Spirit Gathering at Ängsbacka in November!
Martin Siri Jodha
My identity as a spiritual teacher is falling apart for what could I possibly teach you that you don’t already know deep down in the core of your being. All I can do is to remind you to stay present, inspire you to let go and to surrender to what is. I also see that I have a lot of ego invested in that identity so what I can remind you of I also need myself. Every moment of each day offers a chance to allow the quality of beingness and presence. This is my practice right now and this is the gift I will try to hold space for.
In the Gathering Kundaliniyoga with some Jodha twist will be offered and the Gong might draw you in towards the surrendered state. Your mind might try to resist the pull but it’s when you allow yourself to let go that the true blessings of life will be yours. And who knows there might just be a puff of more beingness and presence that lightens up your life journey in moments to be.
Pernilla Dalprems first meeting with the unique Gong vibrations was a deep spiritual experience. Her feeling after the relaxation was that ”everything was different”, a feeling of being new in this world… A deep experience of peace and calmness. Another place to act from. At that moment she decided to learn how to play that fantastic instrument. It was the start of a transformation process that came to change her entire life and her way of living it.
Pernilla Dalprem is also a Kundalini Yoga and mindfulness teacher as well as a Physiotherapeutic KBT, familytherapy and TA) and nurse.
“To trust my Intuition and the way that life unfolds itself, has become a blessing that guides me through my life.”
Elin & David
Elin and David started their musical journey together in 2014 and are both very passionate and dedicated to this form of bhakti – devotional singing to the Hindu gods and goddesses, to life, love and Mother Earth. Elin plays the harmonium and David the guitar and together they sing and play traditional mantras and songs, mainly in Sanskrit, as well as writing their own material.
The mantras/songs are a form of meditation and a beautiful way to open the heart to deepen our consciousness. They live in Molkom and have been having bhajans at Ängsbacka for the last couple of years. This will be their second year at the Yoga festival and first year at the Tantra festival.
“Love is the door, chanting is the key.” – Bhagavan Das
