'Be aware of your breathing.  Notice how this takes attention away from your thinking and creates space’
Eckhart Tolle

When stressed the nervous system triggers the flight and fright reaction. This causes us to breathe short and shallow as if we are permanently hyperventilating.   


Prolonged periods of stress and incorrect  breathing leads to anxiety, confusion and many other debilitating health conditions. 

The breathing practices, pre breathing technique asanas – postures to deepen the breath & Yoga Nidra - relaxation taught on this weekend will correct, reset and restore the breathing patterns resulting in greatly reducing stress and anxiety.

Shivaratri - Mantra & Havan Retreat 


Shivaratri Midnight Havan

21 - 22     $108  Book Here
21 Shivaratri Havan 5pm - 1am $20  Book Here (no accommodation) 

Shivaratri evening will be filled with the vibration of Shiva Mantra Chanting. On Saturday morning creating your own personal clay Shivalingam. 

Shivaratri represents illumination in place of absolute darkness, the manifestation of knowledge in the superconscious state, the possibility of becoming fully awakened to one’s inherent positive self.  

The auspicious celebration at the time of the dark moon Shivaratri will be conducted at Rocklyn Ashram with shiva kirtans, bhajans, midnight havan and Abhishek – the ceremonial bathing of the shivalingam which represents the purification of the soul.

 

During the havan the mantra of Om Namah Shivaya will be chanted 1008 times to awaken the internal Abhishek of mentally pouring the waters of pure love over the Atmalingam of the lotus heart. 

The external Abhishek is performed with various ingredients of vermilion paste representing virture; offering of milk, honey, fruit, sugar and curd to nurture the gratification in life; offering of bhasma, turmeric, tilak and saffron waters to purify; lighting of incense yields wealth and the lighting of oil lamps signifies the attainment of knowledge.  

The offering of these important ingredients, mantra chanting and sincerity encourage the growth of devotion, commitment, integrity, courage, faith, trust and noble thoughts and actions.
