One who does not breathe fully and deeply can neither be well physically nor makes use of his mental faculties - Manish Vyas

By consciously slowing down the breath and looking objectively at how we think, listening to the endless reel-to-reel spooling through our minds, we may begin to notice patterns that give us clues to how our mind is over working. 

The weekend practices for accessing the quieter mind will focus on:

  • postures to activate the relaxation response and develop stillness
  • short periods of dedicated silence 
  • yoga nidra – conscious relaxation for the body, mind and emotions
  • meditative breathing practices to awaken the connection to subtle attributes of relaxation
  • awareness of patterns of thought and on going patterns in life
  • the ability to observe or witness the mental flow of thoughts without sinking in them
  • the importance of a regular practice
  • the importance of living a conscious joyful lifestyle

“Silence is essential. We need silence, just as much as we need air, just as much as plants need light. If our minds are crowded with words and thoughts, there is no space for us.”
Thich Nhat Hanh

The ashram situated on the edge of the Wombat State Forest is a perfect silent retreat environment.  

A short Silent Yoga & Meditation retreat offers precious time and space, not always available in other forms of living, for quieter and deeper self-reflection and self-enquiry. 

Silence is an opportunity to quietly and objectively look within. With systematic practice, you will be able to give a new orientation to your feelings and experience enhanced connection with your quieter self.
