This retreat is for those who are young, or young at heart, dynamic and wish to sustain and cultivate a positive attitude towards life.

Bhagavad Gita is concerned with developing attitudes to life situations which give us immunity from ups and downs that may sometimes engulf us.

Prior yoga and ashram experience is not necessary but helpful.

About the Teacher:
Dr. Swami Shankardevananda

Yoga Psychology & Psychotherapy

These lectures will cover an overview of yoga psychology and yoga psychotherapy, which are branches of yoga therapy. Yoga Psychology is the theoretical basis for yoga psychotherapy, which is a vast branch of yoga therapy. It plays a vital role in the successful treatment and management of physical, psychological and spiritual conditions. This is because a physical approach alone (for example, drugs) or a psychological approach alone (for example, CBT) can only give limited and often short-term benefits. 

Yoga psychology is a modern term that is in evolution. Dr. Swami Shankardevananda defines it as “the science of the embodied relationship between consciousness and mind”. In one sense it is the science of the “subtle body”, which can be imagined as lying sandwiched between the physical body and the spiritual or causal body. 

Immersion into Wholeness: Diving into the Wheels of Life

with Lama Marut, Cindy Lee & Andrew Mournehis

24 - 27 Nov    Enrol

for more information please contact: Maree Fowler

In the yogic tradition, the inner “wheels” or cakras are power centers through which we can access different aspects of our psychological, energetic, physiological, and spiritual life.  In this weekend retreat, we will get in touch with our psychic inner body in order to ground, balance, and nourish our lives.  We’ll use lectures, meditations, chanting, music, yoga, and movement as the springboard for deep personal inner work and transformation. 

Andrew Mournehis, one of Melbourne’s finest yoga teachers, once again joins Lama Marut and Cindy Lee in a retreat that will offer different perspectives on the spiritual journey to peace, happiness, and connection to others.

Course Overview

A Mindful Lifestyle Retreat differs a little from the Living Consciously program in that extra time is allocated after lunch to deepen relaxation and reclaim inner balance and direction during your personal retreat. Course material and group meetings are consistent with the Living Consciously concept of mindfulness.

What was beneficial about the retreat?

  • Yoga Nidra, the daily topic to witness and reflect on and the balance of all the yogas including Karma Yoga were highlights in my life changing experience. 
  • Wonderful. It is one of the most peaceful settings I've had the privilege to be in. I am inspired.  
  • Location, affordability & ethos
  • Complete toolkit to help re-assess your mind/lifestyle

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.
