Please contact us for shorter stays during Navaratri

Engaging in sadhana of mantra, yantra and pooja - applied sincerity, commitment and endurance at the auspicious time of Navaratri bestows great benefits on the practitioner.  It is declared by the ancients that particular constellations are auspicious and full of abundance granting peace, plenty and prosperity for overcoming personal, family, karmic and social obstacles. 

Navaratri – 9 nights of Devi Pooja, Havan, Yantra & Mantra sadhana will be dedicated to invoking the qualities and strengths of Shakti in the form of: 
• 3 days – Durga, bestows vigour upon all aspects of your personality.  She removes all your obstacles and destroys the vicious samskaras that hinder your spiritual progress.
• 3 days – Lakshmi, fills you with divine virtues and blesses you with material prosperity too, so that, freed from mundane anxieties, you may pursue the spiritual ideal.
• 3 days – Saraswati, unlocks the gates of wisdom and reveals the realm of spiritual knowledge.  She opens your inner eye of intuition and discrimination.  You begin to perceive reality and turn away from the unrealities, the deceptive appearances of this world. 

The Mother in these 3 forms bestows the shakti energy for transformation in redirecting the mind away from the unnecessary habitual patterns that create distress in life to sattwic – harmonious qualities that create peace and balance in everyday life. 

The last day is called Vijaya which indicates victory over the negative to the positive or tamas - darkness to sattwa - illumination.

Healthy Breathing for Mental Wellbeing 

 
The Language of the Breath - Inhaling Harmony, Exhaling Discord

29 - 31 Oct     $325 Book Here
30 - 31 Oct     $225 Book Here

Breathing is the most important thing we do. We breathe day and night, ceaselessly, our whole life through – nothing is more critical to our survival. What is less widely appreciated is that breathing is also important to our quality of life. But how much do you know about your own breathing?”

If breath is the singular force which sustains life, it correlates that optimal quality of breathing promotes the highest quality of life, whilst poor awareness of breathing is related with poor quality of life. It follows therefore that to change your breath is to change your life.

Give yourself some breathing space amidst the peaceful nature and nurturing atmosphere of Rocklyn Ashram. Enjoy the harmony created by the regularity and simplicity of yogic lifestyle, and
• Develop simple yet profound techniques to become aware of and reshape habitual breathing patterns
• Understand how the breath reflects our state of mind and emotions
• Come to learn the language of your breath
