‘’Holi marks the arrival of Spring
and the colours of life
ready to come into flower,
A place where stories
are not only written, but lived.’’
Holi is known as the famous festival of colours – where people throw colored powder on each other. People also throw water mixed with different coloured powders upon each other in a game like manner. The festival of Holi has become known worldwide in recent years. Usually Holi is understood as the celebration of life and colour, but what does this fun filled festivity of playful games signify for Tantrics?
Holi takes place upon the First full Moon after the spring equinox. The days are now longer than the nights and this first Full Moon of the ascending season marks the lunarly beginnings of Spring. The medium of the full moon reflects these forces of colourful flowering to us – Nature affects the hormonal currents as flowering abounds in the plant, animal, human and spiritual worlds.
Tantric ritual traditionally has kept this Holi night for the practice of inner and outer colour and sound. The intonations of each Chakra along with inner and outer work with colours is ritualised in a colourful and enlivening practice of awakening to Life and Love. The effect of these practices is to open the potentialities of the Chakras. The Chakras are doorways to the spirit and can be accessed with the keys of sound and colour. Working with the chakras opens the psycho-physical doorways of our being.
Emotional and physical memory is stored in the chakras and gives shape to the reality and dreams we live through in our lives. Tantrics understand that we create our lives through the lenses of the chakras. By working with the Chakras, we create the possibilities to open to the spring like blooms of Love and uproot the dead and faded bouquets of yesteryear in the healing journey of life that we are all upon. There awaits the possibility of magical and hitherto unknown mystical tones when we open the doorways of the chakras into the melody of expansive resonant being. This ritual will be a focused evening of working with the colours and sounds of the chakras. Musicians and artists of the soul are welcomed to partake in this ritualistic gathering and celebration.
Please note | For this ritual you will require seven pieces of paper that reflect the rainbow of the colour spectrum: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. You can be creative and use scarfs or colour in upon pieces of paper. We will be engaging in some powerful and lesser known tantric mudras of colour, known as Rangi mudras – literally the practice and attitudes of colour.
