The meeting is a chance to experience the joy and lightness that comes from simply being present, in the Now. These are qualities that greatly support the creative pursuits of the Open Day, allowing you much more freedom of expression in your creativity.

Let yourself be enveloped by the sounds of crystal singing bowls, cymbals, monochord, Sansula, and other instruments. Follow the sound in the stillness of Being, from which everything arises. There, in the silence of your heart, listen to the voice of your Self. The deepest relaxation of your body, mind and soul will come, you will experience serene tranquility and inner peace by meeting with yourself, by becoming one with yourself and life, with the Divine.
We will start with relaxation, you are invited to let go of your everyday life and be here and now. Breathing exercises will cleanse and empower your body, fill it up with Prana (subtle life energy) and calm the mind. The sun salutations, Surya Namaskar, are a sequence of Asanas (Yoga exercises), fitting to the rhythm of breath and will be the active part of this session. They help warming up and stimulating the body, mind and spirit. The following Asanas will stretch and empower the body in a gentle way. Our focus will be on awareness and building up body consciousness. At the end, deep relaxation will lead you into silence and balance the stimulated energies in your body.
I discovered my love for Yoga during an ayurvedic retreat in Sri Lanka. I experienced the soothing effect of Yoga on the body, mind and spirit.
I could ease the pain in my back and resolve tensions in my body through Yoga. All my life I was into sports, but Yoga finally taught me to consciously feel my body and be aware of my needs and borders.
Yoga brought me back on the right track - the path to my true self. It's like coming home - A space to retreat and calm down, a space that gives me new power.
It's my passion to share my experience. Damani is living since two years in the Open Sky House where she is giving regularly Yoga classes in the morning.

The Great Misunderstanding - Afterwards a talk with John David and residents of the Community
An inspiring film with beautiful images for anybody who wants to know what life is really about and it opens our eyes for our true potential. It shows deep insights into the extraordinary and intensive experiment of Open Sky House Community. The film shows the residents in their search for Awakening, with John David guiding them from the misunderstanding of separation to oneness, from the imprisoning of conditioning to inner freedom. The message is about the profound and life-changing realisation that true happiness, peace and love are to be found inside us.
