An evening with Lubomyr Melnyk

An evening with Lubomyr Melnyk

The fabulous Ukrainian pianist and composer Lubomyr Melnyk will be coming to Butley to play for us on THURSDAY JANUARY 18TH 2018, following his show at the Jazz Cafe in London. As many know, Lubomyr is the pioneer of Continuous Piano Music. Classically trained and greatly affected by the minimalist movement in the early 1970s, he has developed his own unique language for the piano, named after the principle of maintaining a continuous, unbroken stream of sound. He is also, it can safely be said, a true eccentric and great performer!

We saw him play at Latitude in the Summer, and again in September at the Barbican as part of the Erased Tapes Label's 10th anniversary. Both times we were mesmerised and enraptured! I'm sure you will be too. For us, the experience was akin to standing under a waterfall of beautiful sound.

Winter Warmer Retreat With KIND & SYC

to Nov 12

Winter Warmer Retreat With KIND & SYC

Jayna (KIND Yoga) and Gabrielle (Secret Yoga Club) invite you to a winter warmer retreat in 12th century Butley Priory of Suffolk.

Just before you dive into a sea of mulled wine, mince pies and tinsel, we welcome you to a weekend designed to cover you in love, reawaken your body, fill your soul with magic and within these sacred grounds return you to a place of integration and expansion.

Using the Chakra system as a framework for the retreat, we’ll scan the body to identify physical and energetic blockages, and explore how this ancient philosophy can guide you through a practical journey of self enquiry.  From our little toes to our heads, we’ll explore our inner poetry, re-orientating us out of the thinking mind, and dropping down into our own physicality, rooting deeply into our flesh and bones.

We believe, like life, our practise is multidimensional, both we and yoga are limitless. As well as Vinyasa and restorative yoga, we’ll be taking  the practise off the mat to work with all of our senses. Expect some winter woodland walks and explorations of the suffolk countryside. Nature will be there to guide us through our journey, as we nestle around log fires, drinking hot coco and roasting chestnuts.

Moving from the physical realm to the more subtle, we’ll explore the oceanic vastness of the breath, through a number of different breathing exercises.  We will observe how it can be manipulated to create different effects within the body-mind. The voice is also a potent tool for empowerment. Ever wondered why it feels so good to sing in the shower?  We’ll work with our voices, in a non-intimidating, releasing and tuning, so that we recharge and shine with our own sound.

This leads us to meditation as the final piece.  Allowing space to be quiet and dwell in stillness. This will help us reorientate back in our hearts and make decisions from a place of intuition.

With all the external information we take in from our busy lives, it’s tricky sometimes to know what we truly want. Now we can allow ourselves that crucial time and space to listen within.

If this all sounds a little bit far out for you, don’t worry. The retreat will be very real with lots of space for resting, reading and doing your thing. What’s most important to us is that we nurture and indulge you in loveliness so you leave feeling juicy, refreshed and inspired.  

Our super power is packaging the magic up in a way that appeals to everyone, yogis and newbies alike.
