Yoga is a force for unity which goes beyond race, gender, faith and nations. For many people in recent times, it has come to the rescue in terms of keeping the body fit and the mind serene. From August 1st – 3rd 2020, the Celtic Woodland Yoga Festival will attract over 20,000 yogis from all over the world, but this year, the event will be virtual! We attended last year’s inaugural event, and found it to be a truly beautiful and heart-expanding experience. We are extremely excited about its return!
Here at Positive Life, we are committed to bringing you as much inspirational content as we can, which is why we’re kicking off our new venture with a podcast from Eckhart Tolle. Now more than ever, we are committed to spreading as much good news as we can, so we’re extremely excited to share our news…
Master Freediver, yoga teacher and art psychotherapist Daithí Ó hÉighnigh was a delight to work with in our Spring 2020 issue. We loved hearing about how his formative life experiences shaped him, the services he now offers, and what listening means to him. Read the full piece below!
PLEASE NOTE: Due to global events, this event is now postponed. We hope to arrange a new date as soon as possible.
Following our previous visits from the acclaimed yoga teacher, musician and folklorist Jack Harrison, we are thrilled to have him back at Positive Nights to perform his beautiful music on Thursday April 2nd from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. in Bewley’s Café, 78/79 Grafton Street, Dublin 2.
Jack first encountered yoga in the 1970s and 1980s in San Francisco. After leaving the U.S., he began to work with the Irish Wheel of Yoga in Galway. He launched his career as a yoga teacher in 2005. Throughout his career, he has travelled extensively and studied a wide range of yoga styles, including Iyengar, Satyananda, Ashtanga and Anusara.
Jack has also had a keen interest in music and singing since his childhood. He holds a Masters degree in Irish Folklore and Archaeology and has worked for many years as a consultant and lecturer in Heritage Interpretation. In recent years, he began to understand the deep connections between his three interests – yoga, music, and folklore/archaeology – and established the Celtic School of Yoga to help tie together the yoga traditions of India with those of the Celtic world.
He has travelled widely around the world, offering workshops, intensives and teacher trainings. and his teaching work is now strong influenced by the Celtic tradition. These practices explore how to ally movement of the body with breath, focus, mythology, poetry, music and the natural world.
We are thrilled to be hosting him for a special concert on Thursday April 26nd from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. in Bewley’s Café Theatre, 78/79 Grafton Street, Dublin 2. Click here to book your tickets.
Join us for a fascinating exploration of Kundalini Yoga in the Aquarian Age with Guru Dharam.
Guru Dharam has an international healing and yoga practice. He has taught Kundalini yoga since 1980, and has been practising Oriental medicine since 1988 when he founded the Lotus Healing Centre, London. He served as the Vice Principal of the London Academy of Oriental Medicine. He also founded the International School of Kundalini Yoga in the UK in 1996 with Darryl O’Keeffe, co-author of ‘The Kundalini Yoga Experience’, teaching people to become yoga teachers. Together, they have led training courses in Sweden, UK, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Malaysia, and the United States.
Through Guru Dharam’s long-standing dedication to the practice of Kundalini Yoga, he has a wealth of knowledge about the world from an energetic viewpoint, and is happy to answer any questions. His passion is to facilitate others’ spiritual journeys as we move into the Aquarian age. This Aquarian age was taught by Yogi Bhajan when he first came to the west in the 60s, and has many correlations with other spiritual traditions. During our evening with him, Guru Dharam will explore the role of spirituality in the Aquarian age.
“Kundalini Yoga is the first choice method of attuning yourself to the Aquarian Age. It is the time to exercise the power of love instead of the Piscean love for power. All of the layers of our biosystem need to switch gear to receive this energetic transmission. But switching gear means clearing, releasing and refining at all levels of our being. This is where the model of Kundalini as a primary healing modality becomes so important and valuable to us – the light bearers and Spirit Guides of the Aquarian Age”.
Such healing is the speciality of Kundalini Yoga.
Our evening with Guru Dharam will take the form of a one-hour talk, followed by a short break and then a Q & A session with the audience.
This event will take place on Friday February 21st, from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m., in Bewley’s Café, 78/79 Grafton Street, Dublin 2. Click here to book your tickets.

The Celtic School of Yoga is an inspirational school that focuses on tying together the spiritual traditions of Ireland and India. It was born out of founder Jack Harrison’s great love for yoga, as well as folklore and music. In February, he and Benita Wolfe will host the third Celtic School of Yoga Teacher Training in Kinvara, Co. Galway. We were excited to learn all about it, in this extract from our Winter 2019/20 issue!
Yoga Therapy Ireland (YTI) was one of the earliest proponents of the therapeutic benefits of yoga in Ireland, long before the ancient practice gained widespread popularity. The organisation celebrates its twentieth anniversary on February 1st, so we were thrilled to speak with founding member Maureen Nightingale for our Winter 2019/20 issue. Read on to learn all about the wonderful healing potential of yoga!
