Make peace & kindness an every day awareness

Easter Retreat Timetable

Includes Twice daily Meditation sessions 

An Easter retreat to restore inner balance, inner peace and reconnection to purpose through yoga, meditation, nature, ritual - havan and chanting & reflective awareness following the 7 levels of peace.

1. Peace with the body, 2. Peace with the mind, 3. Peace with the family, 4. Peace with humanity, 5. Peace with culture, 6. Peace with Mother Nature, 7. Peace with universal consciousness

Spending the Easter break at the ashram offers ample time and space for reflection, and a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. The serene bush landscape, the birdsong, the lake, the multitude of tranquil nooks, makes it easy to decompress and settle, even over a short weekend stay. The veggie garden, teeming with life, is the source of the delicious, nourishing, organic, vegetarian meals you will enjoy. Karma yoga creates an energising feeling of interconnection, where you are transported out of an individual, insular way of being, to being part of the community. The daily routine and ritual creates a sense of purpose and structure, with a balance of yoga, meditation and relaxation in order to neither be too busy, nor fall into boredom or complacency bringing with it a sense of present centred awareness.

Shivaratri Midnight Havan
08 Mar: 5pm - 1am $50 Book Here

Following the teachings of Origins of Yoga & Pashupata Yoga, the discussion between Shiva and Paravati. 

Midnight Havan and Om Namah Shivay x 1008.

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.

"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

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
