A weekend to nourish the body, calm the mind and get in touch with your true self, growing in awareness of the Divine within

About this event

An ashram retreat is an opportunity to nourish the body, calm the mind and get in touch with your true self, growing in awareness of the Divine within. The weekend comprises of spiritual practices from the Yogic path, a combination of gentle Hatha Yoga and various types of meditation and reflection, under guidance. Everyone is welcome and no experience necessary. The yogic path offers us practical ways of growing in spiritual awareness in a chaotic world, to open oneself to union with God (the Christ within), with people and with the natural world.

The retreat aims to help participants in the practice of the asanas (Hatha Yoga), contemplation in action (karma yoga), bhakti yoga (union through devotion) and jnana yoga (union through knowledge (e.g. wisdom teachings from the mystics or scriptures).

Yoga mats will be provided but you are welcome to bring your own. The FCJ Spirituality House is located in a quiet area by the sea in Spanish Point with many gentle walks nearby.
