Transformative Chanting Retreat

Sunday 18th-Monday 26th March 2018

The turning of the seasons can be a time to turn inwards and gather strength from the experiences of life. It is a powerful time to clear away what is complete and open space for a way of being that is more attuned to, and nurturing of, the growing awareness/consciousness within.

Planetary energies are aligned at this time to make it auspicious for the Sadhana (practices for transformation) of Navaratri. Mantra and sacred fire ritual are some of the tools used to help carry us, with ease, into meditation states. Repetition of sacred sounds in the language of Sanskrit, create a resonance which helps to bring the whole body-mind system into balance and harmony with itself and the universe.

Over these eight days of practice, we open to the deep source of our capacity to make change, allow material and spiritual abundance, and touch our infinite creativity, as we celebrate and honour these higher aspects of ourselves.

This retreat offers opportunity to increase capacity for:

One-pointed awareness through mantra practice, yantra meditation and sacred fire ceremony (havan)
