Midsummer Chakra Sadhana Retreat - Evolving through the Chakras

About This Event

Welcome to a chakra sadhana course at the beautiful retreat centre Dharma Mountain in Hedalen, two hours north of Oslo with Swami Karma Karuna Saraswati. 

Embark on a 9 day journey through the chakras, the subtle energy centres within your body, which influence every aspect of you life from your daily experiances to the spiritual realm. They are a framework to understand your physical health and challenges, energy level, mental well-being, emotional states and more subtle layers of existence. 

The flow or block within your chakras determine many aspects of your life.

During this 9 day transformational retreat, enjoy yogic techniques such as asana, pranayama, mudra, bandha, yoga nidra, meditation, yantra, mantra, fire ceremony and kirtan practice to transform, stimulate and clense the subtle energy centres.

Each day will be devoted to a different chakra, exploring traditional symbology, the glands and physical components of each chakra, phycology of the chakras and more. Learn about how the chakras influence your relationship with yourself and others. Gain tools to improve your health, awaken creative abilities, enhance your strengs and overcome challenges.

Venue Highlights

Our unique surroundings, with big gardens and a field, which on special occasions can be used for camping, makes it possible to arrange big events, festivals, camps and concerts. At maximum capasity, we have provided food and lodging for 350 guests over four days.

Common experiences of our surroundings are relaxing in a hammock in our flowering gardens or a stroll in our birch grove, listening to the sounds of nature, the winds in the trees, the birds singing, viewing the swallows´ swirling flights over the lake… An atmosphere that invites well being, slowing down and letting go of the business of everyday life.

Close by, the river with its wild waterfalls and quiet pools, invites you for an exhilarating experience or maybe for a refreshing bath…? If you choose another path, it will bring you up to a higher point with a magnificent view over the mountains and valleys, and you may also spot an eagle!

During groups and retreats we offer different sessions and massages.
We recommend you to book before you come, to see which terapist and which sessions we can offer you.
