Pilgrimage to Canterbury

Book Now
Free
Saturday 30th April
Other
TBC

As part of building our community in Tara, and to experience the beautiful English countryside and its numerous sacred sites in a spiritual way, we are excited to be launching the Tara Pilgrimage Community Group.

What is a Pilgrimage?
Pilgrimage in England has taken place since hunter-gatherers followed well-worn tracks, which then became ritualised journeys in Celtic and medieval history and in early modern Christianity.

Usually done on foot, a pilgrimage is a journey to a sacred place that touches the hearts and souls of the pilgrims, drawing them closer to God.

The purpose of a pilgrimage is spiritual growth, and can often start with an intention, or questions such as: Who am I? What is my purpose in this life? What do I need to hear now? What do I need to draw me closer to my true spirit? What do I need to heal? By asking these questions the pilgrimage becomes both an inner and an outer journey. The spiritual practice of pilgrimage can also begin without an intention or initial awareness, and it is only on later reflection that the pilgrim realises that their life has been spiritually enriched by the journey.
On the pilgrimage it is important to cultivate an attitude of self-reflection and openness, and attention to what comes to you. Without this awareness, the pilgrimage can become just a walk in the countryside, and lack a deeper purpose.

You are invited to join us on 30th April 2022 and follow in the footsteps of this thousand year old tradition of English pilgrimage, uncovering the secrets of the Pilgrims Way to Canterbury. We will share this moment of spiritual awareness by walking 4.5 miles along the Pilgrims Way, finishing at Canterbury Cathedral.

If you would like more information, and to join this Pilgrimage please join the Telegram Group by clicking the link below.

We are very much looking forward to sharing this experience with you!

This is a free event open for our members only. Although the event itself is free, participants may incur costs for travel, food etc.

If you wish to join the pilgrimage please email: andrewtr@tarayogacentre.co.uk

Celebrating Spring Equinox on International Astrology day ~ for members only

Book Now
Free/Donation
Sunday 20th March
London
2-9pm

Let’s begin the Astrological New Year together, and on the right foot!

On Sunday 20th March we celebrate the beginning of a New Astrological Year, marked by the Spring Equinox. Also the 20th March is International Astrology Day. You are wholeheartedly invited to join us, and to immerse yourself in the magical world of Astrology, for a day of meditations, free mini astrological readings, workshops, and astrological fun!

The Spring Equinox holds great importance for many reasons. It is on the equinox that the sun transits exactly over the equator of the earth, and the hours of daylight and darkness become equal almost everywhere on Earth. This is a time of balance and wholeness, of perfect harmony between the yin and yang energies.

The moment of the Spring Equinox hiatus also marks the entering of the Sun into the fiery sign of Aries, ushering us into the season of spring. This energy helps us to be more daring, full of initiative and a pioneering spirit, enthusiastic and ready for a new chapter of our lives. This is an auspicious moment to set the right intentions for this new cycle, to sow the right seeds to create a spiritual leap. Together, on 20th March, we will consciously take this first single step in this new cycle of our life-journey.

This event will include:
• A meditation in spiral formation – of communion with the special moment of the Equinox
• Short talks, including a short-and-sweet crash course in Astrology
• Free mini natal chart astrology readings
• Workshop on Mars and Venus – When Eros meets Love
• Discover yourself and others through the eyes of Astrology – Astrology Spiritual Speed Dating
• Astro Party

Important Notice: If you would like to receive an Astrological mini-reading for free on the day, please email alinac@tarayogacentre.co.uk by 18th March with your natal details (date of birth, exact hour, city and country). Participation to the Astrology readings is completely optional, but booking for the event is still essential.

We are very much looking forward to being with you, to sharing joy, fun, spirituality and our love and fascination for Astrology, and most of all, to diving deeper within. This event is free/donation and open to our members only.

Please note: The latest time you can join the meditation for the Equinox is 14:30. There will be no possibility to join between 14:30 and 16:45.

‘Die before you die and you shall become immortal.’

Rumi



In all ancient spiritual traditions of our planet the role of Death has played a mysterious and vital role in striving for spiritual accomplishments and inner realisations.
Why are we so fascinated by this apparent end of our existence? What is concealed in this powerful and inevitable event following any process of becoming?
According to the initiates, the moment of dying is a mysterious initiation into the secret of life.

This crucial transition into the next world is in fact a very privileged opportunity to realise the natural source of our existence and the purpose of our life.


What you will learn:

  • Spiritual perspectives of death in different cultures and traditions
  • The existential importance of contemplating death
  • Realising that which is ephemeral and that which is eternal
  • Understanding the parts of the being that reincarnate
  • The value of near-death experience, and what can be learned from them
  • Rites of passage. That life is infused with the death of the old to welcome the new
  • How we can help those who are dying
  • How we can prepare for our own inevitable death
  • Practising the art of dying – which is the art of living, in daily life
  • Kaya Kalpa, a practice of meditation in darkness
  • Meditations related to the topic

Shivaratri Meditation

Book Now
Free
Tuesday 26th July
London
9:15pm

Join us in meditation on the night of Shiva, a celebration in adoration of Shiva, the night before the New Moon, and the most auspicious moment in the month for meditation.

Shivaratri is celebrated 12 times a year, just before the rising of the new moon. It is called the night of consciousness, and it is the night in which we celebrate the light of awareness that shines within.

In a world of energy, movement, development, entropy, a world of Shakti, there is an underlying matrix of information, structure and meaning.

Shiva is the aspect consciousness present both at the individual, manifested level and at the cosmic level, the one who will guide us back to the essence of our being and to the real source of it all.

We will explore this concept as preparation for the Shivaratri Meditation, which takes place in the most auspicious moment of the month, the New Moon, when connecting with the deepest and most transcendental aspects of ourselves becomes easier.

We invite you to join us in this inner celebration of the Light of Consciousness, so that we may spread this light outside.
