2 -6 Dec Shikhaa & Mayank End of Year Retreat – meditation and movement, satsang and song. There are no steps, no stages, no attaining, no striving … just freedom! Explore Advaita Vedanta (non-dual wisdom) and how it illumines the way to live in the awareness of freedom and love. Shikhaa and Mayank are modern spiritual teachers who share this ancient knowledge in a relevant and accessible format, making meditation accessible, practical and fun.

11-13 Dec Dancing Chi Breathwork and Meditation Retreat with Billy Koru Ra. Billy will be sharing a variety of techniques which he practices to open the body/mind/soul in ever expanding potentiality.

18-20 Dec Spirit of Kirtan Camp lead by Shikhaa and Mayank. Share the joy of our collective power & unity through singing, drumming & meditation. The Spirit of Kirtan camp is a special opportunity to come together and discover the power of song and rhythm, through the Indian tradition of Kirtan (call & response singing of ancient Sanskrit mantras). Singing kirtan is a powerful method that uncovers our inherent love and joy because the vibration of the Sanskrit language is in tune with the subtle energies of the human nervous system.

12-14 March Be the Master of Your Freedom and Happiness Weekend Retreat, with Family Constellations facilitated by Maia, Hypnotherapy with Gabrielle, yoga and lead meditations and Satsang (universal truth) discussions. In Family Constellations, we’re unraveling entanglements and repeated patterns in a family system and looking at the root cause of an issue, presented by the participants, which most often didn’t originated in your own life, but was passed down by the ancestors. Often we have picked up beliefs and feelings early in life that subconsciously are limiting us; Hypnotherapy allows you to move through and past those limits so all aspects of you are working together, unfettered.
