Liverpool and Manchester Universities Yoga and Meditation society members are invited to a yoga and meditation retreat.
Register here to book your place.
“What is a retreat?” A retreat serves as an opportunity to withdraw from the mundane aspects of daily study/work routine and metropolitan life. In the spiritual sense, a retreat’s purpose is for spiritual growth. It is a time to explore your internal self through deep meditation, a time to realise one’s closeness with the cosmic force that pervades the entire universe.
We have arranged a programme that revolves around collective practice of meditation and yoga postures. Practicing in a collective setting creates an ambiance which facilitates our individual introversive flow.
Together we will practice:
- Kiirtan (melodious mantra chanting)
- Sadhana (meditation)
- Svadhyaya (explanation of spiritual scriptures)
- Asanas (yoga postures) and
- Satsuanga (spiritual community)
Along with workshops, games, walks and uplifting conversation. We aim to provide a memorable experience, an experience that will endow us with inspiration and stamina to go deeper and deeper into our practice after we return home from the programme.
What we request from you as participants is your sincere effort to follow the routine to the extent of your capacity.
Cost is £50 including food, transport and lodging.
Apart from the basics (clothes, toiletries, etc.) everyone will need to bring their own Sleeping bag, yoga mat and towel.
