Event description

Description

Our retreat will be a celebration and exploration of the beauty that drives human evolution from the material to the sublime. At our retreat you will:

* gain an understanding of spirituality as a celebration of beauty

* become inspired to bring more beauty into your life in terms of daily behavior, how you design your environment, and in your
interpersonal relationships

* examine inner beauty, outer beauty, societal standards of beauty, and images of beauty in the modern yoga world

* explore beauty as it relates to some ethical principles of yoga like shaoca (external cleanliness and mental purity) and brahmacarya (seeing everything as an expression of the divine)

* learn how the practice of meditation can help cultivate intuition and a deeper appreciation of beauty beyond the senses

Tantra is a spiritual tradition which originated in India 7000 years ago and was first systematized by the ancient guru, Shiva. It emphasizes the development of human vigor, both through meditation and through confrontation of difficult external situations, by overcoming all fears and weaknesses.

The retreat will also include collective meditation sessions, kirtan, yoga classes, delicious vegetarian meals, workshops on the retreat theme, nature walks, a music, poetry and stories sharing circle, and other spiritual activities! There will be an orientation for those who are new and meditation instruction will be provided. We will have outdoor activities, tour and play time with the farm animals, and other fun activities in warm spiritual company.

Our retreat will provide you with lots of tools to become an enlightened yogi and give you the opportunity to learn from teachers that have over 30 years of experience.
