Our focus: opening the 3rd eye ~ Ajna Chakra
Ajna (Sanskrit: आज्ञा, IAST: Ājñā, English: “command”), or third-eye chakra, is the sixth primary chakra in the body according to Hindu tradition. It is a part of the brain which can be made more powerful through meditation, Yoga & other spiritual practices just as a muscle is. It signifies the subconscious mind, the direct link to the Father, the Supreme Mind, God, Infinite Intelligence, Universal Mind, and any other name associated with the Creator of the Universe and everything in it. While a person’s two eyes see the physical world, the third eye is believed to reveal insights about the future. The third eye chakra connects people to their intuition, gives them the ability to communicate with the world, and helps them receive messages from the past and the future. (Source: Wikipedia.org)
After working on Vishuddi, the Throat Chakra in the previous SSJ, this time we shall focus on Ajna Chakra, the Third Eye Chakra or the Brow chakra. Chakra means ‘energy wheel’ in Sanskrit, whereby it creates powerful vortexes of energy within our physical body, thus affecting our mental and emotional subsequently.
When it is open and balanced, we are intuitive, receptive, imaginative, optimistic, mindful, wise, calm, efficient and have good memory. This powerful chakra also helps you see physically and intuitively, whereby “seeing the big picture” becomes easier as our inner vision expands.
Together we will explore various ways to meditate through natural movements, experiment with different dimensions of sounds, textures, emotions and endless possibilities as a collective group! This would be a good opportunity to learn authentic and creative non-verbal communication, often resulting in spontaneous healing and soulful meditation.

SSJ Memories & what people say 回忆+分享…
SSJ brought me into deep discovery of self and deep healing. With Josephine’s facilitation, I was able to dive within and allowed everything coming up. I felt such relief after workshop and being whole again.
Dear Jo, I absolutely loved the session the other night. It was good to get the inner animal out of the prison and also throw away the mental garbage before sitting down for real meditation. I find such dynamic meditations to be very effective so I will be looking forward to joining these sessions in the future. Many thanks for organizing it!
Last nights SSJ was amazing! I experienced things that I can work on like, I was a bit uncomfortable with the movement part and it is only because I am not use to expressing myself through movement. I had a very good connection using my voice spontaneously. The leading of Josephine and her wonderful musician was so connected with the energy of Mother Earth. I also am not used to connecting with Mother earths energy but more connected to the Divine’s Energy so I really had a wonderful experience with that too. Thank you for leading a amazing session in sound journey it was so grounding. And also working on the grounding chakra. Thank you to all that also came it was a great group of people. I am very blessed and humble.
There is a kind of music that quiets down all the chaotic chatter, gradually turning up the volume of our inner voice; the world stands still, leaving infinite space for you and yourself. Have you ever listened to your inner voice? It is profoundly and movingly beautiful indeed! I am so grateful to Josephine and all these souls to create these precious moments of deep listening!
Sound Healing, where am I? Actually there is no “me”, because I am inside everyone! I found myself deliberately floating to feel my physical body as I connect with everyone around me, and to feel the powerful presence of so many emotions within the space.
Such a fantastic experience it was – to perceive the world through dance and music in a completely brand new way. Never did I know that dance is actually such a primal expression of human nature, that no dance technique is needed at all, until now.
