Guru Poornima Day - by Dakshina (donation)
3 July  

Guru Poornima is the time when disciples and devotees can align with the Guru Tattwa and strengthen their resolve to remove the veils of avidya, ignorance. 

Guru Poornima is celebrated on the fullest and brightest full moon of the year.  At this time if we create the right circumstances it is considered to be a moment of the year when the blessings of all gurus, traditions and masters shower grace, intuitive guidance, and blessings to support our sankalpa, sincerity and commitment as we enter into another year of spiritual endeavour.       

The Guru Poornima Retreat will be celebrated with daily havan, personal sadhana time, mantra chanting, sadhana and ashram life and sangha – mandala of rememberance.

Peace to disconnect - visitor in 2022 
The location, environment, yoga instructions, food and peace were just what I needed to disconnect and completely unwind. The tranquil setting with wildlife and bird life were a treat to encounter, and the classes have left me feeling so grounded and connected, Thank you for a wonderful retreat. Hari Om.

Change and transformation begins once we become aware of the derailing and seesawing effect unconscious habit patterns have on our happiness and fulfillment in life.

A regular routine of 5 simple practical and regular yoga techniques can develop self-awareness infusing life with enhanced vitality and direction.

Whenever my mind, body and soul needs to reset and recharge, I feel the call to Rocklyn.

Being surrounded by sweet-smelling gums and the songs of birdlife; morning meditation and yoga overlooking the stillness of the lake; nutritious vegetarian meals; and the warm hospitality of the residents make Rocklyn my spiritual home away from home. 

I highly recommend a weekend retreat for clarity of mind and reconnection to self.

Visitor 2022
Thank you so much for my stay at the ashram and for the wonderful programme. The ashram is such a magical place, nestled in nature and away from the bustle of the city. It was a much-needed break from all the external stimulations and distractions, as well as a good reminder to get back to the practice. I left with a better sense of clarity and centredness and can breathe easier now.
