Women’s Yoga Retreat

By | News | No Comments

“Woman and the Voice of the Divine”

Uncover our natural, powerful, beautiful, instinctive and screed voice.

4The very nature of the Divine is knowledge, eternity and bliss. As human beings we are part material nature and part spiritual nature.

Often our spiritual nature can be covered when the material influence or the modes of nature become dominant. In spite of this, we all contain the brilliant spark of the Divine. With consciousness and spiritual practice we can uncover that Divine spark.

Join us for women’s voice, yoga and meditation. This is a two day retreat where we explore our divine voices, in speech, in song, in meditation and in devotion. Explore our own rites, rhythm and rituals.


When: 6.00pm Friday August 21 – 3.00pm Sunday August 23, 2015

I have just arrived back from 2 glorious weeks in China. First stop was Beijing where our team were spoiled with heavenly vegetarian food and, were able to play Bhajans to a room filled with guests, revelling in chanting the holy names of the Lord.

An ambient fake sunrise filled the stage!
