Experience a recharging and relaxing retreat with guided meditations emphasizing the chakras and the astral spine. For millenia, yogis have recognized the existence of a subtle energy body, which plays an important role in our mental and physical health and our spiritual development.
In this retreat, you will:
- Learn an effective and practical meditation technique to become aware of the subtle energy body and the 7 energy centers (chakras) which are located in the central channel (sushumna) of the energy body
- Using meditation, we will explore the connection between the chakras and our psychological and emotional states
- Through Ananda Yoga®, we will use the asanas and pranayama to direct energy upward in the sushumna and awaken and stimulate the chakras
- Experience a devotional evening of chanting and meditation using sound and visualization to open and stimulate the chakras
- Take home a meditation routine to awaken the chakras
Explore spiritual principles, based on the teachings of Paramhansa Yogananda, author of Autobiography of a Yogi. Feel the joy of community while surrounded in the beauty and peace of our rural retreat center west of Portland, Oregon.
