January/February 2024 News
Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!
This month, there are no changes to classes/timetables, etc., but wonder if any readers would be interested in my soon to be published pioneering book for Lent?
Wild Goose Publications (Iona Community) will publish ‘Embody Lent’ around 22nd January 2024 for £10.99 available on their website.
Here’s the link for pre-orders:
This book intersects Yoga and Christian Spirituality in an illustrated 8 session course; involving movement, breath awareness, biblical reflection and ways into silent prayer. It is a resource for individuals, pairs or groups and there are options for chair exercises only if necessary. For Yoga teachers you may know it is an ‘off the shelf” course which you could easily adapt for your context.
For your family, friends or colleagues – it’s for them if they already practise yoga or are simply curious…..
I am a Spiritual Director, a Church of Scotland minister in the Presbytery of SouthWest Scotland, currently an ecumencial pioneer minister in the Diocese of Carlisle and a Yoga Scotland teacher, with classes in Cumbria, SW Scotland and weekly on Zoom.
Peace be with you
