Meditation and Ashtanga Yoga Retreat Program

The Hero’s Journey

April 5 – 12, 2014

with Michael Hamilton

About the Retreat

There are many wonderful stories in the yogic traditions from India of people seeking truth and meaning. This icon of the hero overcoming obstacles and thereby conquering darkness is a beautiful metaphor for how each of us feels when we face the many challenges and obstacles presented by our daily lives.

This retreat will draw inspiration from many different sources within the spiritual traditions of India, such as the Bhagavad Gita, Upanishads, Buddhist sutras and Yoga sutras to help us find echoes of the seeker within and present us with practices to help us find our way.

Morning practice will be Mysore style Ashtanga. Afternoon sessions will include detailed meditation, talks on spiritual text in the non-dual traditions, asana workshops on inner alignment and the use of subtle bandhas, as well as spontaneous talks on living in today’s complex world.

I have been sick for a while, fainting with no founded diagnosis, experiencing muscle pains, stress and constipation for many years. A friend of mine invited me to attend this retreat. After 7 days of detox and yoga, I found that I slept well, my snoring was gone, and my muscle pain in my arms was gone. I highly recommend everyone to be open minded, your health will be better. The therapists at Samahita Wellness were also experienced and approachable. Thank you to all the staff for making me better. More power to you. ∼ Maria, (2013-01-01)
