What a massive year 2017 has been! With everything that’s happened socially and politically, I think most of us are just crying out for a fun ol’ time in good company, or Satsang, to use the Yoga term. So instead of “Intention Setting” for the new year in this mini-retreat, we are going to dial the seriousness back a notch and just celebrate what is and give thanks to each other, to all we have done and to what we have right now! After all, what we are doing now determines what happens next – the law of Karma teaches us that 🙂
Coincidently, this month’s Jivamukti focus is “A Gathering of Tribes”. My beloved teacher, David Life, explains that “Satsang is often defined as the company of like-minded people in pursuit of the truth.” He says that when we experience the support and community of good association and freedom from bad company, we experience freedom from a life of misconception on a level of mental disorder. We can free ourselves from the pursuit of sensory entertainment to avoid the gathering sadness within us. So in this mini-retreat we will further dissect what satsang is and what it means to us Yogins in this modern age – how we can purposefully come together in satsang to strengthen and broaden our minds so that ultimately we will be able to see clearly and perceive the divinity of all beings. You don’t have to study with a guru in a cave or embark on a pilgrimage to a holy place, the Jivamukti yoga satsang is alive here in Adelaide and you are all invited to practice yoga, meditation, study and most importantly, to get inspired together!
As always, this full day mini-retreat will include a massive, dynamic Jivamukti Yoga masterclass, practicals, pranayama, scripture study, chanting, a gentle hatha and yoga nidra session and a full vegan lunch.
The early bird cost is still only $120 if paid prior to Sunday Jan 7th 2018. Price increases after this date to $140. The delicious vegan buffet lunch is included in the price! 🧘♀️🕉️🎇 Plus I’ve also got a special treat for the Yoga students after our End of Year Celebration this year. It’s movie time – The Jivamukti Movie “What Is Real” will be shown afterwards!This documents the story of my teachers, Sharon Gannon and David Life and how Jivamukti Yoga was born. There will even be choc-tops (aka Salted Caramel Coco-Bliss vegan ice creams) too! 🎆🧘♂️
