This shorter (3 day/4 night) yoga retreat in the beautiful backlands of Byron Bay, creates a wonderful healing winter escape with lots of of yoga and mindfulness sessions, delicious food, stunning retreat grounds, and plenty of time to enjoy the amazing surrounding nature, to swim and relax.
The Goddess represents what is hidden, secret, subtle and sensitive, what has to be searched out and discovered. She represents both the teaching and its comprehension. She is the inner guiding power. In our process of self discovery the goddess becomes the muse who guides and inspires us. She unfolds our inner truths.
The Triple Goddess is Shakti, the Supreme Being, manifested as Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati. Saraswati is cosmic intelligence, cosmic consciousness, and cosmic knowledge. Lakshmi signifies abstract prosperity, such as glory, magnificence, joy, exaltation, and greatness. Parvati is the goddess of power, war, beauty, and love. Using the power of the yoga practices of The Goddess SequencesTM, at this retreat you will be exploring the powerful qualities of Shakti within yourself.
Anneriek creates a trusting and open environment to explore your inner Shakti. Each day typically includes: Morning meditation, 2 asana sessions (flow and yin), philosophy/theory session and other theme related activities. A 2hr healing Spa circuit is part of the retreat.
"The image of the Goddess inspires us
to see ourselves as divine, our bodies as sacred,
the changing phases of our lives as holy,
our aggression as healthy,
our anger as purifying,
and our power to nurture and create,
but also to limit and destroy when necessary,
as the very force that sustains all life.
Through the Goddess we can discover our strength,
enlighten our minds, own our bodies,
and celebrate our emotions.
We can move beyond narrow, constricting roles
and become whole."
The retreat starts Wednesday the 28th of July at 5PM and finished Sunday the 1st of August at 9AM.
