Maha Shivaratri Community Weekend

Friday 08 March, 2024 @ 3:00 pm - Sunday 10 March, 2024 @ 3:00 pm

A Community Working Bee Weekend to celebrate the energy of Maha Shivaratri “The Great Night of Shiva”

Maha Shivaratri is the most significant spiritual event of the year for those walking the path of yoga. It is a time when there is a natural upsurge of energy in the human being and an opportunity to experience the oneness of the cosmic creation.

For householders, Shiva’s wedding is celebrated as the union of consciousness and energy that gives rise to the universe. For those that are ambitious in life, this is a day of victory. The day that Shiva conquered all of his enemies.

For those devoted to a spiritual path, Maha Shivaratri is the Night of Stillness and honors Shiva as Adi Guru, the first teacher from whom the science of yoga originated. This is the day that, after thousands of years of meditation, he became one with Mount Kailash, completely still, like the mountain itself.

This is a weekend to connect with and strengthen your commitment to your own spiritual path, while spending time with like minded people, and contributing to the beautiful space of Anahata.
