Retreats are a wonderful way to gain deep rest, delve deeper into the ancient Vedic wisdom, all the while being surrounded by like-minded people and having unforgettable experiences! These retreats are for those who have already learnt Vedic meditation and are wanting to expand their practice. If you want to join us on retreat but haven't learnt, please sign up for a course first so you can experience the profound benefits of a daily meditation practice.
ESSENCE OF INDIA - ROUNDING + PILGRIMAGE RETREAT
The retreat in India this year is going to be a combination of intensive 'rounding' coupled with a pilgrimage into the Himalayas to the source of the sacred river of purification known as 'Mother Ganga'. Held during the powerful time of 'Navaratri' - the nine nights of Mother Divine - we will visit powerful spiritual sites, perform daily yagyas (fire ceremonies) and each participant will engage in an individually tailored intensive rounding program. This rounding & pilgrimage retreat is for dedicated meditators who are really wanting to take their daily practice to a deeper spiritual level and are ready for powerful transformation. It has been designed to help you gain deep rest and rejuvenation while facilitating you to expand your state of consciousness and embody your truest self. This retreat will challenge, move, inspire, uplift and give you experiences that will change the way you see the world and your role in it.
NEXT RETREAT --- 8th-23rd October 2018
ESSENCE OF THE SELF ROUNDING RETREAT - VICTORIA
The Australia based retreat will be for 4 nights / 5 days in Victoria. This retreat is all about rest, rejuvenation and deepening your relationship with yourself. We will be practicing the advanced technique of 'rounding' - an advanced system which combines a specific yoga asana sequence (physical postures), pranayama (yogic breathing technique) and Vedic meditation. Through this process, you will dissolve months of accumulated stress and gain deep well needed rest! We will also be engaging in a powerful process of understanding our individual and collective purpose or 'dharma'. I ran this retreat last year in India and it was super powerful, so I can't wait to do it again here in Australia.

How clever you both are to be so young and so clear on what is necessary and to be able to provide these unique opportunities to the rest of the us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." - Emma

“It’s hard to put it into words what the trip meant! As soon as I heard about it my heart called me to join. I didn’t know at the time how profound this trip would be and even four months later I am still unfurling the many experiences that were a part of the yatra. Laura’s immense Vedic knowledge is generously and sincerely shared with warmth and humour. This is a trip that will move you deeply and leave you feeling nourished to the core.” - Amy
