Retreat Information

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

  • 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
