Yoga and Meditation Retreat in the french Alps (near Switzerland)
****Yoga Meditation Retreat
In the Jura Mountains 4th-8th September 2019****
This journey will be integrating Yoga and Meditation techniques, focusing on a set of sound meditation techniques. We will explore different Yogic practices such as postures, breathing exercises and chanting.
Type of Event
- Core Strength
- Mantra Yoga
- Thai Yoga Massage
- Yoga Nidra
The meditations will be focusing mostly on the faculty of hearing. We start bringing our awareness to the gross sounds, than trying to hold all the sounds at the same time in our perception. The next step is trying to listen the far distance sounds or more subtle sounds. Eventually we wish to hear the sound, which is in the background of the sounds, the sound between our thoughts, the sound of silence. In yoga this practice called Nada Yoga and in Buddhism GuanYin Chan.
We will also explore how chanting can help us to connect to this precious experience of inner silent, representing the substratum of the universe.
The journey of inner silent will take place in a cosy, artistic and beautiful venue, created and touched by the spirit of Anthroposophy. After our meditation sessions we can continue relax in the sauna and outdoor Jacuzzi :)
