What we're about

London Active Meditations Group is for those of us who are interested in inner personal growth and spiritual self-development and includes:

- Unique Active Meditations designed to bring a new quality of ease to our busy, pressured lifestyle. These meditations often focus on the body to release tension so that we can relax more deeply into our essence.

- Experiential Self-Development workshops held once or twice a month such as: Trauma Release work, Bioenergetics, Inner Personal Power and Tantra.

- Meditations, Dance Events and Socials in the Parks and Forests around London - These events are held during the warmer months in the beauty of Nature.

Active Meditations are the synergy of movement and meditation and offer an accessible approach to quietening the mind via the use of specific movements, which can include shaking, breathing, jumping, catharsis, dancing and whirling before entering a space of stillness and silence. As with all meditation, the aim is to allow the mind to be quiet and go beyond the mind to access the deeper parts of yourself.

This practice supports and inspires instinctual intelligence—a conduit for self-healing through accessing the body’s nervous system for a safe, natural, and spontaneous involuntary shaking to occur. As we shake, we remember how to let go of control and all effort, we relax, allowing ourselves to let go of anxieties and stress to help regulate emotions and develop greater resilience. In this class, you can expect to enhance your strength and flexibility, improve your energy levels, heal injuries through the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, reduce inflammation, improve your sleep, create energetic and emotional hygiene for overall well-being, promoting balance and harmony on a deep level. CAN YOU SHAKE YOUR WAY TO GOOD HEALTH? Shaking Medicine® is sometimes referred to as Bioenergetic Shaking, or Kundalini shaking. It is one of the worlds oldest self-help medicines. Shaking, rocking, vibration and oscillation are natural human reactions to: Stress, Trauma & Ecstatic states. We inherently use oscillation as a tool to calm our nervous system. for example, think of why we rock a crying baby to sleep. The practice of Shaking is known by many: Quakers, Gnostics, Taoists, Yoginis, First Nations peoples, Sufis, Druids, Zen Buddhists and more. Shaking Medicine® is a Self-Healing body response to trauma as it can help to clear and release blocks that cause dis-ease. After a shaking session, the body naturally shifts to a higher vibration brings all of the body systems into balance. Shaking Medicine® is a wonderful way to let the body really move, shake up and release stress & tension, and bring in new fresh energy - revitalising yourself Body Heart & Soul. Shaking Medicine® is both 1) a contemporary somatic therapy practice for grounding and mobilising the Body-Mind. And 2) an ancient Shamanic technique for achieving non-ordinary states of consciousness - optional blindfolds available! WHAT TO EXPECT: This is an active meditation. It is about self-discovery, embodiment and relaxation. In our work, meditation is not concentration, but relaxation. You will simply relax into the shaking. Simply relaxing into yourself. The more you relax, the more you feel yourself open and flexible. Relaxation means falling into such a strong state where you are not doing anything, you simply relax into the shaking. The music will support the experience. We end with a relaxation stage where you are invited to lay down, relax and let your whole Body-Mind system rest. Please bring a yoga mat with you to rest on. Thank you *PLEASE READ: *Shaking Medicine® should not be considered as a substitute for proper medical consultation for physical, mental and psychological illnesses. It may not be suitable for everyone. Shaking can involve some physical strain and a rise in intra-abdominal pressure. If in doubt, first consult a trained medical professional for guidance.
