Participants are guided into self-introspection with a profound experience of the sacred within. Focus is on meditation, silence, breath control practices and Sanskrit Mantra chanting. The practices explore the four streams of Yoga- Raja yoga, Jnana Yoga, Bhakti yoga and Karma yoga.
We start the day off early with a gentle (all-levels) Hatha Yoga Asana practice to enable you to sit still in meditation. Participants are guided gently to explore the inner realms through the Vedic philosophy of India, in discourse, chanting Mantras, Yoga nidra for deep rest and relaxation, Breath-control practices called Pranayama, and visualization /meditation practices. You will have an opportunity to participate in sacred Vedic rituals held for the benefit of all participants in attendance. We will also explore how the science of land, earth and the stars all come into play in your daily living and practices. Healing and transmission sessions are also offered. Serious aspirants on a spiritual path are provided one-on-one guidance and initiation into mantra and other spiritual practices.
