Yoga & Meditation 


23 - 25 Sep     $350 Book Here 
24 - 25 Sep     $250 Book Here 

This weekend will present a number of simple and accessible meditation techniques for the beginner and the practitioner.  

A regular practice of meditation fosters a better and more harmonious way of living with one’s self and others. Meditation reduces the stress responses, improves the quality of discrimination, and enables access to greater levels of clarity, insight, and focus, as well as unplugging the mind and senses from an overload of externalisation.  By cultivating the attitude of the witness in reviewing the events of the day, as a practice of meditation, transforms unconscious and unhealthy pathways, greatly reducing the escalation of stress and confusion.

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.
