Yoga's profound relaxation practices of yoga nidra & deep breathing draw the mind inward and fill you with a sense of inner peace.
We all wish to have time and space to truly let go. In fact many things we choose to do in the search for relaxation can place more stress on an already overloaded nervous system. And although they may seem pleasurable, they are not providing the necessary deep, restorative rest that the body, mind and emotions require.
Attending a weekend of restorative yoga for relaxation, in the peaceful environment of the ashram allows one to rest unaffected by the world and personal obligations.

Shivaratri Midnight Havan
Sat 25 Feb: 5pm - 1am $30 Enrol (no accommodation)
The weekend will be filled with the vibration of Mantra Chanting and creating your own personal Shiva Yantra.
Shivaratri represents illumination in place of absolute darkness, the manifestation of knowledge in the superconscious state, the possibility of becoming fully awakened to one’s inherent positive self.
The auspicious celebration at the time of the dark moon Shivaratri will be conducted at Rocklyn Ashram with shiva kirtans, bhajans, midnight havan and Abhishek – the ceremonial bathing of the shivalingam which presents the purification of the soul. During the havan the mantra of Om Namah Shivaya will be chanted 1008 times to awaken the internal Abhishek of mentally pouring the waters of pure love over the Atmalingam of the lotus heart.
The external Abhishek is performed with various ingredients of vermilion paste representing virture; offering of milk, honey, fruit, sugar and curd to nurture the gratification in life; offering of bhasma, turmeric, tilak and saffron waters to purify; lighting of incense yields wealth and the lighting of oil lamps signifies the attainment of knowledge.
The offering of these important ingredients, mantra chanting and sincerity encourage the growth of devotion, commitment, integrity, courage, faith, trust and noble thoughts and actions.

Course material and group meetings are consistent with the Living Consciously concept of mindfulness.
During the Mindfulness Lifestyle Retreats program participants will discover, experience and analyse the methods by which yogic principles and practices can be applied in their daily lives.
