The Power of Breath

The Power of Breath

Have we forgotten how to breathe properly?


Breath is the most important aspect of our lives. It is involved in all vital activities in our body.
In our current busy environments we forget how to breathe fully. Often people breathe superficially, and as a result not enough oxygen gets absorbed. This causes metabolism reduction, narrowing of blood vessels (so your organs are not getting enough of nutrition), hyperstimulation of the nervous system and muscle hypertension.
Correct breathing can normalize the functioning of our internal organs and glands, improve blood circulation and metabolism, and provide the cells of our body with the oxygen they need. Regulating and changing our breathing habits has great potential in solving a lot of our emotional and physical problems.

In Indian philosophy, 'Prana' is vital energy - life force. It's in us, around us, in every object. It is in the air we breathe.
There is a big number of Nadis - energetic channels in our body, interconnecting parts of our body and mind. Any problem on a physical, emotional or spiritual level is a block in some of these channels.
Pranayama means control of Prana. The practice of pranayama helps to clear blockages in Nadis, and as a result, solve the issues we are experiencing.

In the workshop we will go through a set of exercises and pranayama to bring vital oxygen into every cell of our bodies. In the process we will get the chance to get into a light state of trance and deepen our attention into the subtle processes in our bodies.

From this workshop you will take away a set of exercises for your personal practice that is aimed at changing your breathing habits and improving the quality of your life.

Sacred Pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash

to Sep 19

Sacred Pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash

Embracing the Infinite Sacred Pilgrimage to Mt. Kailash

Join us for a unique spiritual adventure into the mysterious interior of Tibet

Hidden from the eyes of the world by the mighty Himalayan peaks, Mount Kailash, the crest jewel of creation has, over millennia, drawn sincere pilgrims from many faiths to its feet to contemplate the oneness in the power of nature.
Kailash is the heart and soul of the Himalayan regions and the most sacred of all the world's holy mountains. It stands alone, in silent contemplation, above the Tibetan plains, drawing the eyes of all who come near with its power and purity.

The circumambulation (walking around the mountain) is an act of penance and prayer. With each step the pilgrim is taken deeper into the silence within, whilst taking in the sacred landscape without. One circle (pradakshina) symbolises one revolution of the wheel of life or the cycle from birth to death. With each step there is purification and exaltation.

This sacred journey is for a small number of spitiual seekers wishing to deepen their connection with the inner consciousness. The trek requires a reasonable level of fitness.

Pilgrimage Guide

Savitri has been travelling to the Himalaya,s including Mt Kailas,h for the past 25 years. Living in sacred regions she has been deeply inspired by the ancient pathway to Self- realisation. Over the past fifteen years she has undertaken an annual pilgrimage to Tapovan, living in a cave, amidst the silence, within the community of saints and yogis. These experiences transformed her own life and she wishes to play a role in sharing the transformative power of practice in places of spiritual power.

Cost: $2955 NZD early bird or $3995 NZD full price - excludes air fares

*Please note price is reflective of twin shared accommodation to upgrade to single accommodation it will be an additional $300

Womens' Self Love Retreat
Mar

to Mar 3

Womens' Self Love Retreat

YOU'RE READY TO GIVE YOURSELF THE LOVE AND GRATITUDE YOU DESERVE 

 By joining us on this retreat you are telling yourself and the world that : 

~"I put myself first because I'm important to me" 

~" I look after myself and I respect myself " 

 ~" I believe that I deserve to have time out for me " 

 ~" I am a priority and I put myself at the top of the list " 

 ~" I take care of me so I can take care of others " 

 ~" I know that when I serve me first I am able to be the best version of myself for everyone in my life" 

 ~" I am thankful to me and for me" 

So Yayyyyyy YOU ARE AMAZINGGGGG !!! 

Quite simply this retreat is exactly what it says it is …. 

A safe loving space for you to retreat, to connect back to you and honour yourself with love. 

EVERYTHING BEGINS AND ENDS WITH LOVE

We were born to give love and receive love but sadly over time as we become adults and take on different pressures of life and go through many challenging situations we forget about giving to US .. we push us to the back of the line, bottom of the pack, and before we know it we have forgotten how to even give it to ourselves anymore.

We have lost us !

There are many reasons why this happens, why we allow it to happen and we will be giving you valuable knowledge for you to be able to understand more on that. 

When we have the knowledge and understanding, we then have the power to getting the right tools we need so that this doesn't happen again.

THE POWER IS ALWAYS IN OUR HANDS 

" As you become more clear about who you really are , you'll be better able to decide what is best for you- the first time around "    -- Oprah Winfrey 

This Self Love Retreat is all about YOU 

Its YOUR retreat, so from the moment you walk through the door and feel the energy and love you'll also feel your power. 

This retreat is made for YOU , and by that we mean YOU get to choose how it goes. 

There will be a guide to each day which allows you, if you wish , to participate, to take you through a gentle journey of self discovery , giving you things that will have you reflecting on your life choices from your past and where you are heading in your future once you leave us.

Alternatively if there are any activities that you do not wish to participate in then that’s your choice and that's absolutely okay ,you will know what is best for you and what will serve you best. 

The full content of this retreat is explained below , which allows you to have the power and choice before you even arrive, to what you think you might like to take part in , but you always have choices and that means you can change your mind too when you're there !!!
