Shekinah Yoga Retreat is situated on the side of Chalice Hill, and it has been a hub of activity in Glastonbury since its inception as Shekinashram in 2003. It is a philanthropic project and acts as a space of sanctuary for many.

It is a place of retreat and celebration both peaceful and dynamic, the ambience here is homely, relaxed, grounded and is focused on living consciously, peacefully and truthfully. This is a place to take rest, reflect and journey deeper into your spiritual practice. As a spiritual community, we hold a sacred space, created away from the world where individuals come to both cultivate and draw upon spiritual sustenance. The Retreat is now run by Prema Lakshmi with the support of Elahn Keshava and Gisela Lirusso (Radhe) and a great team of staff, Radhika, Isabelle, Jo and Avery and a devoted group of local volunteers. There is a friendly, devotional atmosphere where work is treated as meditation and selfless service is used as a spiritual practice.

We are an ethical business that advocates incorporating yoga into everyday life, promoting health, wellbeing, healing and renewal through following the 4 paths of yoga: Bhakti yoga – love and devotion. Jnana yoga – knowledge of the Self. Raja yoga – control of the mind – self mastery. Karma yoga – selfless service. Our aim is that everyone involved feels empowered to lead vibrant creative lives through the practice of yoga and meditation. We invite all involved to discover their own true nature through comprehensive yoga and meditation practice for all levels utilising workshops, immersive retreats, teacher trainings and philosophical study. We aim to achieve a level of equilibrium that enables us to experience the challenges of our human lives with open hearted ease. We are committed teachers, workshop leaders, volunteers and owners inspired by a work environment where individuals lead, and are part of a retreat centre that thrives on personal connection, nonviolence and a spirit of freedom. Shekinah is the visible, feminine aspect of the Divine. The descent of grace into the manifest universe.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To reconnect with my inner self, found ground through the movement of my body and breath. Awake. Jane
 

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
