Description

Dynamic Wellbeing is thrilled to be able to offer Kundalini Yoga Sadhana from 8:15am-11:30am on Saturday 9 December 2017 at Newcastle Cathedral Education Centre, St Nicholas Square, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 1PF.

If you've never heard of Sadhana before, it is a morning Kundalini Yoga ritual of reciting sacred text (approx 30 mins), doing a kriya and relaxation (approx 60 mins), and then meditating to 7 different mantras in Gurmukhi (approx 60 mins). The whole practice takes 2.5 hours and we have tea and biscuits afterwards!

On Saturday 9 December we focus specifically on the upcoming Winter Solstice.

Dynamic Wellbeing Sadhana is free to attend but should you wish to make a contribution towards running costs we suggest a donation of £5 per person.

Places are strictly limited and booking in advance is essential. To secure your spot on Saturday 9 December please book via Eventbrite.

What is Kundalini Yoga Sadhana?

Sadhana means daily spiritual practice. It is the foundation of all spiritual endeavor. Sadhana is your personal, individual spiritual effort. It is the main tool you use to work on yourself to achieve the purpose of life. It can be done alone or in a group. Sadhana is whatever you do consistently to clear your own consciousness so you can relate to the infinity within you. Before you face the world each day, do yourself a favour and tune up your nervous system and attune yourself to your highest inner self. To cover all bases, it includes exercise, meditation, and prayer.

Why do we practice Kundalini Yoga Sadhana?

During what are called the “ambrosial hours” (the two and a half hours just before sunrise), when the sun is at a sixty-degree angle to the Earth, the energy you put into your Sadhana gets maximum results. Your world is quieter. It’s easier to meditate and concentrate before the hustle and bustle of the day begins. If you absolutely cannot get up early in the morning to do Sadhana, then do it some other time! Doing Sadhana at any time of the day or night will benefit you.

Develop a regular Sadhana and you take control of your life. Develop a deep Sadhana and you open the doors of experience. Commit to meet your higher Self each morning and your decisions and your life become original; your life will bear the signature of your soul; your radiance will express the meaningful intimacy of the Infinite in each moment. Immerse yourself in the joy of victory that comes from starting each day with a powerful Sadhana and every challenge becomes opportunity.

FAQs


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter Sadhana?

Attendees must be 18 and over.


What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from Sadhana?

How to find us:

Newcastle Cathedral Education Centre is within easy reach of many public transport links:

RAILWAY
Newcastle Central Train Station is just five minutes' walk from Newcastle Cathedral Education Centre. When leaving Central Station, turn right along Neville Street. You will pass by the monument to George Stephenson, father of Robert Stephenson, as well as The Literary and Philosophical Society and the North of England Institute of Mining and Mechanical Engineers. Then follow Collingwood Street to bring you out at Newcastle Cathedral, St Nicholas Square. Cross St Nicholas Square (past the statue of Queen Victoria) and walk along the length of the north side of the Cathedral to join a short cobbled street leading to St Nicholas Church Yard. Once on this cobbled street, enter the Cathedral's small courtyard on your right through a black metal gate. Go through the entrance door on your left and the Cathedral's Education Centre is through the next door immediately on your left (above the Dog Leap Café).

CAR
The nearest major public car park can be found on Dean Street. Walk out of the car park, cross straight over Dean Street and almost directly in front of you is a small stairway that brings you up into Amen Corner, at the back of the Cathedral. Turn right and follow the short cobbled street to approach the Cathedral's small courtyard on your left and enter through a black metal gate. Go through the entrance door on your left and the Cathedral's Education Centre is through the next door immediately on your left (above the Dog Leap Café).
There are numerous other parking facilities, including multi-storey facilities and 48 surface car parks operated by Newcastle City Council. The Quayside's multi-storey car park is approximately 12 minutes’ walk away and can hold up to 500 vehicles.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT
The Nexus operated Tyne and Wear Metro service operates into Newcastle city centre - with several stations in close proximity to St Nicholas Cathedral Newcastle Education Centre. The nearest stations are Monument Station (at the top of the Grade I-listed Grey Street) and Central Station, both less than ten minutes' walk away. If travelling from the Airport via Regent Centre, you will have to alight at Haymarket and change platforms.
The Q1 QuayLink bus service runs to the bottom of the Side, the medieval Quayside street which leads up to the Cathedral. Public buses run outside of the Cathedral into Gateshead and towards Durham and Chester-le-Street once every 15 minutes (weekdays and Saturdays).

ON FOOT
From the city centre: Head down Grey Street, passing by the Theatre Royal. Turn right along Mosley Street, which will bring you out to the north facade of Newcastle Cathedral, St Nicholas Square. Before approaching the statue of Queen Victoria at St Nicholas Square, turn left to join a short cobbled street leading to St Nicholas Church Yard. Once on this cobbled street, enter the Cathedral's small courtyard on your right through a black metal gate. Go through the entrance door on your left and the Cathedral's Education Centre is through the next door immediately on your left (above the Dog Leap Café).
From Central Station: As you leave Central Station, turn right along Neville Street. Following Collingwood Street will bring you to Newcastle Cathedral, St Nicholas Square. Cross St Nicholas Square (past the statue of Queen Victoria) and walk along the length of the north side of the Cathedral to join a short cobbled street leading to St Nicholas Church Yard. Once on this cobbled street, enter the Cathedral's small courtyard on your right through a black metal gate. Go through the entrance door on your left and the Cathedral's Education Centre is through the next door immediately on your left (above the Dog Leap Café).
From the Quayside: Alight the Side - the main medieval route into Newcastle. Alternatively, you can take Dog Leap Stairs. They're steep but rise straight up to the Cathedral. The Castle Stairs are another route. These can be found on the Quayside, across the road from the Swing Bridge. Again, this is steep but will bring you to the Castle Keep. Keep forward along St Nicholas Street to approach the Cathedral on your right. Continue right and cross St Nicholas Square (past the statue of Queen Victoria) and walk along the length of the north side of the Cathedral to join a short cobbled street leading to St Nicholas Church Yard.
