Transformative Chanting Retreat (Navaratri)

Thursday 21st-Saturday 30th September 2017

Navaratri means 9 nights and is a time of astrological alignment, traditionally recommended for spiritual focus and transformation. Join us in dedicating ourselves to a period of Mantra Meditation integrated with other balancing yoga and relaxation practices. Give yourself time for self exploration and transformation in a stunning natural environment with a supportive yoga community.

Join us to share in a dedicated group practice whilst enjoying a simple yogic diet, times of silence, spectacular nature and opportunities to set or strengthen your own intentions for personal growth.

The days will consist of:

Mantra Meditation(chanting)
Yoga Nidra Relaxation
Karma Yoga (contributing to Anahata activities with awareness) and time for personal reflection
Hatha Yoga and several Havans (fire ceremonies) are interwoven into the overall practice

We will use three themes during this time period, reflecting inner qualities such as facing the challenges of life with positivity, awakening abundance and connecting to our intuitive wisdom, as represented by the symbols of Durga, Laxmi and Saraswati.
