  • Monday 11 & Tuesday 12 October, 17h – 20h – The Science of the Mind – 2 mini workshops

We live in a world where we are surrounded by advertising; influenced by television and materialism; told how to be and what to think. We are constantly thrown into a world of needs and wants and yet when we get what we have desired, we are happy for a little while and lose our peace again. We lose our individuality and strength by becoming victims of a society that dictates to us. We are constantly at battle with ourselves. Life becomes a chore rather than a dance. There is no peace or balance. How can there be PEACE when we are not grounded in our own thinking ?

Value: no fee – donations for charity are most appreciated!

Quinta da Calma: 14 – 18 October, 2010

Retreat: “Deepening Your Study of the Sutras”
with Nalanie Chellaram & Guest teacher, Siva Stephan Trefzer

“Deepening Your Study of the Sútras” will be covering Sutras that have not been taught or touched on at Raja I. It will delve deeply into the subject of Meditation in order to understand the “True Self”. These Sútras take us to a more subtle level of consciousness. The words of the Sútras themselves are difficult to understand without practical application. Our Mission is to dive deep into Spirit while maintaining our connection to this Earth and touching the Lord of Love”

There will be Hatha Yoga with Siva, an Integral Yoga teacher from the UK. He will be teaching “Deepening your Hatha practice”.

Booking and Prices: Registration 15h -17h on Thursday 14th October. Departing Monday 18th after breakfast.
