Shantih, Shantih, Shantih! at Union Yoga in Margate is a mindful yoga community class drawing on ideas explored in the exhibition Journeys with ‘The Waste Land’ that resonate with health, well-being and healing. Many respected yogis have referenced the poetry of T.S. Eliot in their instruction and practice.
‘Shantih, Shantih, Shantih’ is a quote from the last line of The Waste Land poem written by T.S. Eliot, a sacred chant used to close mantras that is both mindful and empowering*.
*The Shantih or Peace Mantra from Sanskrit are found in the Upanishads texts recited at the beginning or end of rituals and discourses written in India between c. 800 BCE and c. 500 BCE.
This is an independent event organised by members of the public in response to Turner Contemporary's invitation to create an event or activity inspired by The Waste Land, T.S. Eliot's legacy, and Turner Contemporary's exhibition Journeys with 'The Waste Land'.
