In Yogic as well as Buddhist traditions, meditation is they key to release our suffering and awaken our hidden potential for unlimited joy, compassion and kindness. In this retreat, we will explore a realm of meditation that is common to both traditions - the awareness of breathing.
From the Yogic tradition the multitude of pranayama techniques strengthen and heighten the awareness of the life force. From the Buddhist tradition, the Anapanasati Sutra gives instructions on how to use the breath to enter the realm of profound awareness. Combined together the mix of Yogic and Buddhist techniques provides an easily accessible yet wonderfully powerful method to bring us to our own True Self.
