Seek Joy in Silence 

The ashram situated on the edge of the Wombat State Forest is a perfect silent retreat environment.  A short silent retreat offers precious time and space, not always available in other forms of living, for quieter and deeper self-reflection and self-enquiry. 
Being silent is an opportunity to be with yourself, to be still, and to experience enhanced connection with yourself and your surroundings. 
By committing to a silent retreat with the practice of self-awareness and the attitude of a witness the mind naturally becomes less busy, more focused and clear without effort, revealing deeper understanding and inner contentment.
The retreat includes:
  • yoga asanas & pranayama become the basis for stillness
  • breath awareness
  • awareness of action & reactions to cultivate equanimity
  • review of the day
  • sitting meditation:  Antar Mouna – attitude of a witness to cultivate equanimity and inner silence
  • Yoga Nidra – deep relaxation for body, mind & emotions 
  • walking meditation using the senses to be present 
  • encouraged to keep a personal diary (optional)

Course Overview
Daily Timetable

Time for renewal in Spring: Take advantage of the natural environment of the ashram for spaciousness between you and the world with daily yoga, walking in the Wombat Forest, bike riding, resting or just sitting in one of the reflective spaces within the ashram grounds. 

This retreat will provide the opportunity to be involved in, the ashram lifestyle, personal time for self reflection and diary, daily discussions on all the yoga subjects and practices offered + subjects on Mind, Mind Management, morning postures & pranayama, yoga nidra - relaxation, meditation, chanting, karma yoga, raja yoga.  
The success of worldly and spiritual balance for personal transformation lies in the secret of being able to observe with mental and emotional honesty our reactions, responses and action in daily life. 
It seems we are constantly being thrown back into the world which leaves us precious little time for reflection and making creative and sustainable change.
Rest, nourishment, digestion, exercise, conscious awareness, different yoga practices, mental activity, even the way we breathe, all have various energetic affects that come into play physically, emotionally and mentally, as we move through the day. 
To be conscious of this energetic inter-relationship with our worldly self and inner self enables us to better monitor our needs and capabilities to return to balance and discrimination.  Observation of our mental, emotionally reactions, responses and outward moving energy gives us insight into what creates a positive and creative experience verses escalation of stress and frustration.
