Australasia Kundalini community gathers again this November in the majestic Hinterland, NSW. It's been a few tough years but we have survived and looking forward to thriving with you all as we reconnect and grow through the Ether Element and powerful energy of 2023.
The Symbolism of the Ether Tattva
In Kundalini Yoga we believe we are made up of 5 elements / tattvas. These tattvas are known as the medium of life, constantly playing and changing our bodies, minds, seasons, and everything around us. As magical as it all is, we rarely take any notice and miss the opportunity to balance our life's experience with these five tattvas. If we can create the conditions in our life to match these elements, we are able to extract the assets from the tattvas and live a deeper, more truthful and harmonise existence.
Without these five tattvas life would not be possible. First comes earth, our raw survival instinct, our need for food, stability, and solidity. Water is next, the social relationships that green the earth, and transforms a bare house into a home. Then fire, that brings warmth, heat, spiritual, and romantic transformational passions that imbue those structures with meaning and value. Air moves things in life, it's the imagination, the oxygen that feeds the flames; finally, Ether, the space, the consciousness, or enlightenment. Ether is without the firmness of earth, the coolness of water, the heat of fire or even the movement of wind. It is therefore the very essence of 'emptiness'. The space provided by it is filled by other 4 elements. The space element is the most subtle of all elements, connected to the ear, the mouth (the voice) the organ of action, for sound and Ether are considered the same.
What to expect from our 5th festival
It’s a time to get back to basics, with like minded community, camping, cabins, and sleeping under the stars. A chance to unplug from technology, reset your nervous system, detox with healthy vegetarian meals. Workshops on Kundalini yoga, meditation, music, dance, swimming, bush walks, kid activities, lots of fun and plenty of time to rejuvenate on the healing land of the Bundjalung people.
It is time to complete the cycle, return home to where it all began, Attuning to Oneness.
