“Prosperity (artha), desire (kama), virtue (dharma) and liberation (moksha) are the four legs of the table of life. The table must have balance, so all four legs must be equally strong and stable.” Swami Satyananda

Just as a table with only two functioning legs has no worth to us, in the same way a life which develops in an unbalanced way cannot function effectively. While the material life has its own importance, we must equally seek prosperity in the spiritual aspect of our life to attain balance. 

In the yogic tradition, there are four purusharthas or efforts in life which provide a framework for attaining this stability and fulfilment in the course of life:

•    Artha – awareness of material needs, security, wealth and prosperity
•    Kama – sensual enjoyment, recognising pleasure and satisfaction in daily life
•    Dharma – righteousness, living according to one’s true nature
•    Moksha – liberation, freedom through self-acceptance

This allows a harmonious development of spiritual awareness and spiritual understanding in line with expressing through the material life.

This weekend retreat offers a range of yoga practices, principles, and tools to apply in everyday life to discover your true purpose in life, and to move toward attainment of the full aspirations of life. Enjoy the rhythms of nature and the regularity and simplicity of ashram, to move towards a state of peace, clarity and contentment in life.

Conscious Communication 

Return to Love 

Facilitated by certified CNVC trainer Dorset Campbell-Ross (UK/Australia)

10 - 12 Nov     $395 Enrol
10 - 12 Nov     $350 Early Bird Enrol (Fully paid by 1 Nov)

In times of stress we often say things that sabotage getting what we want. We criticise or blame instead of making a request. Shining the light of our consciousness on the thoughts and feelings that precede our words, reveals choices that are more likely to meet our needs. We can also choose to hear ourselves and others in ways that foster connection, rather than separation.

Join us if you wish to :

~ Develop a deeper connection with yourself and others
~ Raise consciousness around your thoughts and the words you choose to express yourself.
~ and the choices you have in hearing others.
~ Create and maintain balance and harmony, no matter what the circumstances.

This workshop dovetails perfectly with the Rocklyn Living Consciously program, enhancing awareness and offering practical and easy to learn tools for conscious ~ and effective ~ communication.

Course Overview

A Yoga 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
  • Group sessions. 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.
