Retreats include a full day of Meditation, yoga, breath and chanting practices. We follow the philosophy of Vedanta and the 4-streams of Yoga. Tools provided are simple and can be easily incorporated into a daily lifestyle practice. No prior experience is necessary. Bring an open mind and heart and a willingness to explore your inner world!
Facilitator services, shared accommodation, 3 vegetarian meals + tea are included. Retreat participants must apply on the website and must be approved to attend a retreat prior to making any travel reservations. Groups are welcome (maximum 12). Ages 18 and above are welcome.
Our meditation retreats provide an opportunity for introspection, contemplation and sensory withdrawal with a challenge to connect to your inner Divine Self. As such all retreat participants are expected to maintain silence, a sacred attitude and must adhere strictly to the etiquette, guidelines and schedule indicated.
Internet access is available on a limited basis and participants will be asked to turn OFF all devices when in session. Time will be provided once a day for 15-minutes to communicate with family or loved ones.
Your day begins early at 6:00am and ends at 9:30pm. Plenty of time is provided to journal, walk and rest in between sessions.
To keep the flow of the energy of the retreat and its offerings, no interruptions are permitted once the retreat begins.
