Day Option Sat 9am to 9pm
personal discipline to maintain a regular practice
truthful and honest self awareness/observation of thoughts
transforming negative to positive
creating new patterns/pathways
understanding the senses & the mind
This weekend will present a number of simple and accessible meditation techniques for the beginner and the practitioner.
A regular practice of meditation fosters a better and more harmonious way of living with one’s self and others. Meditation reduces stress levels, improves the quality of discrimination, and enables access to greater levels of clarity, insight, and focus, as well as unplugging the mind and senses from an overload of externalisation. By cultivating the attitude of the witness in reviewing the events of the day, as a practice of meditation, transforms unconscious and unhealthy pathways, greatly reducing the escalation of stress and confusion.
However, a daily or regular practice of meditation requires a level of self-committed discipline in Re-forming Mental Pathways to sustain clarity and equanimity.

You may have heard about the Rocklyn Ashram but feel a little challenged in not knowing what an Ashram can offer.
The Rocklyn Ashram is situated in the depths of the Wombat State Forest and offers a quiet, digital free Saturday to Sunday experience of deep rest for the body, mind and emotions.
A practical program of yoga including postures, breathing practices, chanting and lifestyle is presented to give an overview of the depth and wisdom of yoga for everyday life for balance and inner peace – joyful living.
Please Note: All PRIVATE accommodation is fully booked.
Welcome to all yoga aspirants from all traditions.
The Celebration of Sangha, Yoga & Tradition weekend aims to truly honour and exalt the wisdom tradition of yoga, by sharing and strengthening our knowledge, lifestyle, sangha (community) and satsang (spiritual association).
This celebration aims to reveal and highlight the outstanding depth and breadth of knowledge and wisdom in the Satyananda Yoga teachings and all yogas that have inspired people to live more consciously and joyfully.
A feature of the weekend will be many Acharyas and senior teachers presenting their particular field of knowledge to the sangha in both theory and practice.
Together with these specialised presentations will be the traditional ashram lifestyle which is upheld by Rocklyn Ashram, including the practices of early morning class, yoga nidra, mantra, kirtan, havan, story telling and a sankalpa to preserve the purity of yoga with sincerity, commitment and dedication.
The Navaratri Celebration begins on the 30 Sep. If you wish to extend your time participating in Ashram Life please Contact Us to receive a discounted course fee.
9 nights of Devi Puja Sadhana
Swami Muktimurti will lead the Navaratri program. Mukti with her personal love for mantra and many years of experience in India & Australia shares her knowledge and mantra chanting skills, to deeply understand and experience the purpose of sadhana and mantra chanting at this auspicious time.
Navaratri, literally meaning 'nine nights', commemorates the slaying of the demons by invoking Rama and the goddess Durga, ensuing victory of good over evil. In yoga, these nine nights are considered by the constellations formed and the ancients, auspicious for conducting an anushthana or fixed sadhana in order to bring about inner transformation.
Over nine nights of mantra chanting, havan and satsang, negative tendencies are rooted out and alignment with the positive takes place. The power of Devi, or cosmic energy, is invoked in three forms - Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati - thereby awakening the appropriate energy needed for transformation to take place.
Firstly by cleaning and purifying the inner environment; secondly by decorating, beautifying and nourishing the inner landscape; and lastly, allowing energy to flow creatively in an appreciation of life itself.
On the final day all sadhana and any personal austerities are ceased and Vijaya the victory day is celebrated by havan and expressing joy and upliftment for the beauties and abundance showed upon us in life.
