Check advayainitiative's Instagram Tomorrow night is the third BEYOND ASANA talk at The Rudolph Steiner house. Suzanne Newcombe will be speaking on 'YOGA, AYURVEDA, MAGIC & ALCHEMY'.
In the twentieth century, Yoga is often presented as a 'sister science' to Ayurveda and is increasingly promoted as able to promote longevity and 'wellness'. In this talk, Suzanne Newcombe will present some interesting vignettes of points of contact between these traditions. She will outline the extent of current knowledge of the overlapping histories of yoga, ayurveda, longevity practices and rasaśāstra (Indian alchemy and iatrochemistry) from the tenth century to the present. 
Tickets on our website! This is part of the BEYOND ASANA SERIES ✨ 1626959986483302367_2061644662

Check advayainitiative's Instagram TAKE BACK THE POWER: THE FUTURE OF FOOD IN BRITAIN. 
Why is there deprivation in a sea of plenty? Why is there environmental degradation when we can exist in harmony with the land?  Why have we handed power over our individual and planetary health and nourishment to corporations who care only for short-term goals and profits? 
This Friday 3 November join Advaya Initiative for a solution orientated panel discussion and Q&A exploring the current state of the food industry and where we’re headed unless we, the people, take responsibility and help steer the course of food in Britain towards a healthy, sustainable and globally considerate path.

Check advayainitiative's Instagram Friday the 13th is here. 
In her book, A Woman's Worth, Marianne Williamson writes this: "We are used to thinking of Friday the thirteenth as bad luck. In fact, Friday the thirteenth was the day the witches gathered. When the patriarchal system, headed by the early church, began to squelch the power of women, witches were deemed evil, and many great women were deemed witches. Their meeting time, then, was seen as bad luck rather than as what it truly was: a time for women to gather and share energy and pray together and heal." .

Check advayainitiative's Instagram FRIDAY 20 OCTOBER (1830 - 2030) join Satish Kumar (Resurgence & Ecologist), Molly Scott Cato (Green Party) & Craig Bennet (Friends of the Earth) for a panel discussion on the current place of the environment in the media and policy making.

In the UK at least, the media agenda is heavily led by Westminster. The absence of climate change there means it is virtually invisible elsewhere. That’s a leadership failure. The great irony is that in the UK, proper climate action could help solve many other pressing issues, such as job creation, innovation, direction for UK industry, transport, energy independence, security and more.
✊️
There is no climate fairy. The problem won’t disappear by leaving it to someone else, or pretending it doesn’t exist. But bring it centre stage and you may find magical solutions to other dilemmas.

WE WANT TO HEAR YOUR OPINIONS! STUDENT TICKETS £3. NONSTUDENTS £15.

Check advayainitiative's Instagram Last week we heard from Jim Mallinson and Mark Singleton on the ascetic roots of yoga. This Tuesday 
Daniela Bevilacqua will explore current yoga practice among living ascetic practitioners, in her talk, 'YOGA AMONG THE INDIAN SADHUS: LIVING ASCETIC PRACTITIONERS OF YOGA, SOME THEORETICAL AND PRACTICAL INSIGHTS' 
Before describing their physical practice, she will introduce their religious background and affiliation, and then clarify what yoga and haṭha yoga mean according to them. Afterwards Daniela will describe the performance of yoga āsanas made by some of them with her (a kind of sādhu yoga session) and the public performance of yoga āsanas during religious gatherings, creating some comparison with modern yoga practices.

James Mallinson, 'The Ascetic Roots of Yoga'
✨Yoga is one of the world’s most popular ways to physical and mental wellbeing. In its early descriptions, however, which date to more than two thousand years ago, it is practised by world-denying ascetics and closely associated with methods of self-deprivation, including extreme practises of bodily mortification. In this talk James Mallinson will describe yoga’s origins and its transformation from an ascetic path to liberation undertaken by those on the fringes of society to a wholesome method of achieving wellbeing available to all.

Check advayainitiative's Instagram Couple spaces left for tomorrow's MYTHIC IMAGINATION: POWER OF STORYTELLING AND MYTHOLOGY! Myth, Joseph Cambell wrote, was the song of the universe, being sung by a thousand different peoples and cultures. One story being told by many societies.

Cambell delineated four functions of myth: (1) Metaphysical – the ability to awaken awe and wonder at the nature of existence (2) Cosmological – to help make sense of physical world and universe
(3) Sociological – the ability to validate and support the existing social order and promote social norms, customs and beliefs, creating social bonds, shared beliefs, cohesion and community. Myths are the glue that holds societies together (4) Pedagogical – the ability to guide the individual through stages of life, to help to face challenges through ceremony, myth, ritual. Myth gives guidance, encouragement and motivation and a sense that we aren't alone in life, that we aren’t on this journey without a map and compass 
Tomorrow we will be delving into the power of mythology and story-telling as spiritual and practical tools to connect to our true purpose, empower our lives and ignite awe and wonder at the world around us.

To book your ticket please go to our website, search eventbrite or follow the link in our bio ✨ 1614556195154834713_2061644662

Tawai is the word the nomadic hunter gatherers of Borneo use to describe their inner feeling of connection to nature. In this dreamy, philosophical and sociological look at life, explorer Bruce Parry travels the world to learn from people living lives very different to our own. From the jungles of Malaysia to the tributaries of the Amazon, TAWAI is a quest for reconnection, providing a powerful voice from the heart of the forest itself.

How might we tell a traditional tale using visualisation, storytelling and co-creation in ways that respect the depth, complexity and dream-like nature of the material with which we are working? We will begin at the beginning and carry on from there, exploring a method of "slow telling" which offers space both to bring ourselves into the content, and allow the tale to tell its own story.

- Neil Gaiman

Every culture, every people, every religion is an accumulation of its stories, legends and myths. It is these myths - told and retold from generation to generation - that help us understand each other, determine our own lives, and navigate the future. 
Unleash the power of your story this Saturday at Mythic Imagination. With Sharon Blackie, Jay Griffiths, Sue Hollingsworth and Joanna Gilar.

Check advayainitiative's Instagram To kick start the talks on Saturday afternoon we will proudly be presenting Dr Sharon Blackie on 'The Mythic Imagination: Why Native Myths Matter.’
This talk will explore the ways in which our native myths, fairy tales and folklore offer us insights into authentic and meaningful ways of being, which are founded on a deep sense of belonging to place, and a rootedness in the land we inhabit.
.
Dr Sharon Blackie is an award-winning writer of fiction and nonfiction, a psychologist who has specialised both in neuroscience and narrative, and a mythologist with a specialisation in Celtic Studies. Her unique approach to working with myth, fairy tales and folklore highlights the insights these traditions can offer us into authentic and meaningful ways of being which are founded on a deep sense of belonging to place, a rootedness in the land we inhabit.

Check advayainitiative's Instagram On Tuesday 3 October JAMES MALLINSON will kick off our new lecture series ‘Beyond Asana: Asceticism, Alchemy and the Tangled Roots of Yoga’ with a talk on THE ASCETIC ROOTS OF YOGA. 
Yoga is one of the world’s most popular ways to physical and mental wellbeing. In its early descriptions, however, which date to more than two thousand years ago, it is practised by world-denying ascetics and closely associated with methods of self-deprivation, including extreme practises of bodily mortification. In this talk James Mallinson will describe yoga’s origins and its transformation from an ascetic path to liberation undertaken by those on the fringes of society to a wholesome method of achieving wellbeing available to all.
.
James Mallinson is Senior Lecturer in Sanskrit and Classical and Indian Studies at SOAS, University of London. His interest in yoga grew out of a fascination for India and Indian asceticism – he spent several years living with Indian ascetics and yogis, in particular Rāmānandī Tyāgīs. 
We have different scholars and practitioners joining us every Tuesday of October - tickets online! These lectures are for everyone: students, teachers and anyone with an interet in Yoga, Philosophy and History
