About New Moon, or in Hebrew Rosh Chodesh, The Head of the Month.

What is happening on an energetic level on Rosh Chodesh?
Think of the new moon as a seed that holds all the potential inside it.
A time when the energy of the new month is being encapsulated in one day.
All the potential energy of the month to come exists in this one moment – Rosh Chodesh.
All the new experiences, revelations, growth, and positive thoughts that will exist are bound into this day just bursting to begin.
Each time you recite a special prayer for the new month on its first day, each time you say a Bracha (blessing), each time you spiritually connect on this day; think of this potential energy of beautiful experiences that are yet to come.

What do we practice on these Gatherings?

Yoga Nidra is often translated as Yogic Sleep.
It is, indeed, a state of Deep Sleep but a conscious one.
In Meditation, one remains in the Waking state of consciousness, and gently focuses the mind, while allowing thought patterns, emotions, sensations, and images to arise and go on. However, in Yoga Nidra, you leave the Waking state, go past the Dreaming state, and into Deep Sleep, yet paradoxically, remain awake.
While Yoga Nidra is a state that is very relaxing, it is also used by Yogis to purify the Samskaras, the deep impressions that are the driving force behind Karma.
Yoga Nidra is one of the deepest of all meditations,

Nada means flow of sound and Yoga means Union. Nada Yoga is the process of the union of the individual mind with cosmic consciousness through the flow of sounds. When the river of consciousness is impeded by the ego, Nada or special sounds can remove the obstruction allowing the river of individual consciousness to unite with its source, the ocean of pure consciousness. Sound is a powerful, creative force. It is a vibration of matter, in contrast to light, which is electromagnetic.
When we hear a sound, every cell within our body resonates in response. Sound has the power to transform the psyche and bring healing & harmony back to any organ or physical tissue that has become imbalanced. Sound immersion allows every cell in the body to be washed with sound & the healing intention of the player, leaving the body feeling refreshed, revitalised and renewed.
