Maha Shivaratri – the great night of Shiva!

shiva 2

Om Namah Shivaya!

Join us for a special meditation and celebration on Wednesday 18th February from 7.30pm. This will be a great night and is open to anyone who loves yoga, meditation and/ or a wild night of spontaneous celebration!

The focus of this meditation is about destroying limitations and harmonising with the tail end of the global celebration of Shivratri (which traditionally takes place for 24 hours from dawn of Tuesday 17th February).

Along with meditation, we will be enacting a Shiva Puja at 7.00am on Wednesday 18th February.  Offerings of organic milk, honey, rose-water, coconut water and/or flowers will be brought along by those who want to receive special blessings.

Also, if you have a rudraksh mala bring it along for a special anointing. If you do not bring special offerings to the evening’s meditation the attendance cost is $15, which goes toward setting up the special puja and evening’s events.

In India, Shivaratri is an all-night, country-wide celebration, commemorating the convergence of Shiva and Shakti, coinciding with the new moon in February.

Here in Miramar, Wellington we will celebrate a day later – Wednesday night – to catch the tail end of a great event … better to celebrate late than not celebrate at all! Watch this space for an update on our wonderful celebration!
