International Yoga Month Retreats

Opening into awareness retreat, La Palma (Spain)

Dates: 19th – 26th October

We have a well-prepared program, ready to move us into a state of clarity and presence. With Yoga, Qi Gong, Satsang, Massage, conscious relating, group workshops, dance, live music, Organic vegetarian food.

Many human problems have their source, simply in the fact, that man is “too much” on the head and “to less” on the heart. For that, we’ll do a lot with the body.

And next to the body sessions, when you feel your body more, you notice, that you are automatically much more in the moment. To live in the moment is for many of us a feeling of unimaginable great joy. This joy needs no reason, it is not coming from outside pleasure, it is your deepest core, your inner nature. From that state we are doing Satsang, means we allow the moment to unfold the way it wants.

Might be through answering questions you have, or we are looking together into conditioned, unaware thinking pattern and searching together whether they are true or not. And what influence they have in our life if believed. Or there might be an outbreak of depressed emotions etc. This retreat gives you to the possibility to come to know, who you are beside your name, your profession, your possessives..who you are behind your life-story.
