What’s on in August at Divine Flow
When life takes hold sometimes all you can do is ride the tide and see where you land. There is something most wonderful about surrender. The moment you give in, you leave your expectations aside and allow what’s next.
In this unrolling of life, in this churning and turning that we find ourselves in, let it happen. Life finds a way. It is the most amazing force. You see it when weeds force their way through concrete, or how over time the ocean turns sharp glass into round jewels. We see it in our faces over a lifetime when our lines and eyes show the truth in our stories. Most of all we must remember instead of flailing let the current carry you. As the quote says, “all may not be as it seems, sometimes we just have to allow the night to pass.”
Our community is stronger than ever and one that is welcoming and warm, and when the students show up no matter what the weather is like, we see you and are here for you. This is our role.
Divine Flow is more than a place to practice. It is a place of healing and growth. Read on for everything to come in August – this final month of winter…

Divine Flow invites you on a journey of tea, ceremony and celestial magic as we gather together to align with the moon and her astrological rhythms. By joining in a circle we continue the ancient practice of woman-tribe honouring our oneness with nature. Our primordial roots to the earth, sun, moon, stars and each other. In returning to nature we rediscover our wild temple. Our untamed, intuitive self. We remember the way she sounds, feels, moves. The way she knows, guides, listens. We intuit our way home, and our path forward.
By joining in circle we continue the ancient practice of woman-tribe honouring our oneness with nature.
This month we will explore elements of
– Sharing our hearts in a supportive, safe space
(and please note we would love to hear your voice but sharing is always optional)
– Sound healing and mantra
– The breath
– Embracing the feminine within
Whether you are practised in the art of ritual or just beginning your journey, these circles will meet you where you are. They are designed to be accessible, nourishing and expansive.
So join us for an empowering start to your lunar month ahead! You are welcome to come as you are. Wear comfy clothing you can move in. Also optional is to bring your crystals to charge with circle magic.

When it comes to memory, it’s a part of our brain called the hippocampus which acts like a USB stick to hold all of our short-term memories until they are moved over to our analogical hard drive for long-term storage. As we all age, it is the hippocampus which becomes vulnerable to a reduction in volume and thus destruction to our short-term memory.
Yoga has been at the heart of multiple studies looking at the relationship between this age-old form of movement and the strengthening of people’s memories…
