This forty minute yoga nidra practice is intended to provide support as we encounter the inevitability of change. It helps us to be with uncertainty and to encounter loss. In particular it invites insight into the nature of perimenopausal experiences. The central image is of being at the centre of the womb-rose room, as each petal detaches and blows away. This image and the quality of feeling that surrounds it arrived in my heart during a practice of yoga nidra as I was writing the Bagalmukhi / perimenopause chapter of Yoni Shakti in the writer in residency cottage provided by the Hosking Houses Trust (thank you to Sarah Hosking!). This is a recording of that practice as described on pp 450-1 of Yoni Shakti. I hope that it brings comfort and understanding during any period of loss and change.
