Power of Awareness - with Swami Anandakumar

Silent Sadhana Retreat

26 Apr - 01 May     $750 Book Here

Awakening Intuition 
Intuition as we know it is individual not universal. Individual intuition is the expansion of awareness that in a moment makes the connection between two or more things that have until then only been seen separately. A realisation dawns and a third way an insight can open up. This means that intuition can be improved systematically by creating or setting up a relaxed inner environment through meditation where the noise of the mind as we know it can be seen for what it is. It becomes quiet and the still small voice of wisdom can be heard.

Silence during the course is a blessing and a release from daily concerns. Silence ensures continuity of awareness, an essential quality in being able to go deeper in practice. 

Swami Anandakumar is an internationally respected teacher who specialises in practices of self-awareness. He has studied a wide variety of yogic disciplines over nearly 40 years, training and teaching in ashrams in Australia and India, as well as conducting courses on the practical experience of meditation internationally. This brought insight into the benefits of learning to go deeper into self-awareness as a methodical practice.

Sustaining and cultivating a positive attitude towards life.

"I came to Rocklyn for the conscious living course not knowing what to expect, but with expectations of getting some rest, some time out and some reflection. Wow! I came away with so much more. Atma has created an amazing space, and perhaps a unique resource in Victoria for anyone looking for more than yoga asana practice, to a deeper dive into meditation, prana and conscious, healthy living. The daily structure frees up headspace for reflection, taking time to both breathe in as well as contribute to the surrounding beautiful environs. I enjoyed getting my hands dirty in the food garden, helping out, chatting to other lovely souls all on their own journey and having a good look at the spinning thoughts and emotions that can fill our day, and lead to nowhere.

Thanks for guiding me through the course, and I very much look forward to coming again to take stock, recharge and learn more."  Jeremy

Living Consciously option 2 Timetable
Retreat Information

The Living Consciously Option 2 differs a little from the Living Consciously Option 1  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 awareness.

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 Living Consciously Retreats program participants will discover, experience and analyse the methods by which yogic principles and practices can be applied in their daily lives.
