Each morning, Pravas will be leading an Early Morning Meditation.
The theme of each morning’s meditation is in alignment with the overall energetics of that day’s workshop program and so aside from being a yummy way to start the day, helps sink you and everyone else deeper into the transformative process that is The Joining.
FIRST MORNING – DYNAMIC MEDITATION
This is a powerful physically energetic process using chaotic breath, emotional release using voice and movement, mixed with silence and stillness with ecstatic dance to integrate.
This process allows you to safely release emotions that you have brought to The Joining so you commence the first day clear, cleansed and in a space allowing the various workshop gifts over the next few days.
SECOND MORNING – NO DIMENSIONS – SUFI DANCING AND WHIRLING
This is a simple powerful centering process using gentle repetitive movement followed by gentle whirling/ circling and stillness. The center reached can only be experienced – not described.
THIRD MORNING – NADABRAHAMA
A still sitting mediation listening to soft Tibetan bells followed by silence leads to inner bliss.
This safe, gentle experiential workshop will use movement, stillness, partner work and creativity to explore and transform your self-imposed limitations around life and what we call death.
Imagine a day where there is no unfinished business, no guilt and you embrace and celebrate each dawn each day.
There is no religion, dogma or doctrine in this workshop.
A challenging and powerful acknowledgement of your perceived failings and regrets will be gently confronted, acknowledged and released. You will leave the workshop armed with new awareness, call it an action list, if you choose to transform into living a larger joyous life.
This work is gentle yet confronting.
Come, leap with me into death, change and transformation.
I am an educated woman, grateful for my place in the broader context. I am learning to be a simple woman, recognising the truth that an Australian Aboriginal woman, Lily Walker, once spoke, “If you are here to help me, then you are wasting your time. But if you are here because your liberation is bound up in mine, then let us begin.”
My deep interest in Self-Knowledge has taken me to ashrams in India, meditation retreats in Asia and the transpersonal schools of North America.
I am a registered Psychotherapist, a certified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher and have established a personal mindfulness practice that has deepened significantly over the decades, supporting me in flourishing in these uncertain times.

Terry Bishop knows nothing for sure, has no qualifications of substance, and is often observed standing dumbfounded and slightly amused at the crazy-ass antics of humans (including himself) as we stumble on our way to seeing the divine at play right under our noses.
He has hosted numerous workshops at past Joinings and other gatherings with the intent to inspire others to bloom like a field of flowers on a warm spring day into the fullness of their potentials, none of which worked as planned.
The intention this time is to serve love and truth and see what happens.
with Trevor Cohen
This men-only workshop is designed for you to see and experience the deep and transformational work of Core Energetics at work with the support of men.
It is an opportunity for whoever is ready to make a massive shift in their life, and is past its used-by-date to harness the energy and support of the group of men at the workshop and go deep into the root causes of what is not working to understand, transform, and release the past as you deeply explore, experience, and express your blocked and held energy.
You will work on your relationship to yourself and explore relating to others in radically alive ways. You will find what stands in the way of your full potential for life.
