New Moon Yin and Meditation in Den Haag

feel connected to the cycles of natural life

As human beings, we feel connected to the cycles of natural life around us. Better said, we are part of this beautiful tapestry of life on earth. But we often forget this, distracted as we can get when living our busy lives in urban surroundings.

During the new moon meditation, we have a chance to start anew. The energy is gentle, we start from scratch, we resolve to begin with the aspiration to wake up to our essential nature.

We will start with a ‘warming up’ meditation for about 12 minutes of mindfulness practices followed by a longer sit of about 24 minutes with drops of inquiry. Your precious body will be taken care of to be as comfortable as possible. The main sit will cover the energy of the moon in the particular astrological sign of that day.

We will contemplate on what we are invited to form in the collective energies while checking in on any personal promptings from your field of consciousness.

The meditation will linger throughout your day and into the next two weeks leading up to the full moon.

New Moon Meditation Teachers

Irina van der Sluijs
Irina van der Sluijs
Scheveningseweg, Den Haag
Irina feels a deep longing for exploring consciousness. She used to sit in silence for hours in the church of her hometown and felt at ease in the surrounding nature with animal life. Later on it was in dance where she experienced the freedom and endless space that is ours to roam. In 2003 Irina discovered Astanga Vinyasa Yoga when she entered a Mysore- room for the first time. It was still early in the morning– Amsterdam was sound asleep – but here everybody was wide awake, present and breathing as one. Irina felt an immediate connection and the practice became her companion, in good times and in bad. Good and bad, heaven and earth; our existence is by nature bi-polar. It therefor didn’t take long before Yin Yoga crossed Irina’s path. This gentle form of yoga is a welcome addition to dynamic forms as it nurtures and heals on a deep level. Irina practices a style of Yin that includes Buddhist teachings, cultivating attention and awareness (mindfulness). The quality of breath and meditative aspects are central in Irina’s classes. She loves helping and motivating students to start their own daily yoga practice. Irina continues her studies with various teachers, in particular Claudia Pradella, Petri Räisänen and Sarah Powers (Insight Yoga Institute). Irina completed over 300 hours of teacher trainings.
