Summer Solstice 108 Sun Salutations - Moving Mediation to send Peace & Love into the World
Sun Salutations (Virtual)
Practicing the Sun Salutations is an immensely profound (and fun) way to connect to the life-giving source and power of the Sun in appreciation, love, and gratitude. With intention, we shall practice to open hearts and become a vessel for the love-light-flow to pour forth. Raising our vibration to transform and heal ourselves and the world.
By joining our energy and hearts together we become a powerful beacon of light and love which can spread around the globe. We center in the heart with love and devotion and flow through the 108 with the intention to radiate positive energy into the world.
Join us for this 108 sun salutation practice to generate and send out peace and love into the world and celebrate the Summer Solstice.
The summer solstice marks the height of summer and the earth’s longest day and shortest night. It is a time of honoring the earth and the sun’s blessing of warmth and light.
Solstice means ‘standing of the sun’. It’s a time when the sun appears to stand still, that is, the seasonal movement of the Sun’s daily path (as seen from Earth) pauses at a northern or southern limit before reversing direction. At the time of the summer solstice, we connect to this great turning point in the earth’s yearly cycle.
This year the Summer Solstice is at 11.13, Tuesday 21st June CET. This event takes place 5.30 pm – 7.70pm CET as the energy of the solstice carries us into the summer.
The number 108 is a renowned and sacred number in many traditions. This number also connects the Sun, Moon, and Earth: The average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters. According to yogic tradition, there are 108 sacred sites throughout India, 108 Upanishads, and 108 marma points, or sacred places of the body.
Who is this for?
If you are comfortable with the practice of Surya Namaskar this will be a beautiful experience for you. If 108 sun salutations sound daunting to you, it needn’t 🙂 This practice is a group effort and all are welcome. Should you need to rest at any point you can simply pause the movement and continue to the practice through visualization until you feel ready to resume the practice.
Technical skill is important to make sure you practice without injury. We want you to be safe and comfortable with this practice so please view the following videos to support your practice.
It’s amazing how people are connecting live online, in real-time with zoom and FB, etc . And it’s really profound the potential changes that can happen when a group joins together like this. These virtual group gatherings generate positive energy to help relieve the global crisis, disharmony, and suffering that is currently going on in the world. This is something positive that we can do for ourselves and others.
