Light-Beckons-over-Kootenay-Lake

This retreat is for those who would like to be at the Ashram while working on artistic, personal or professional projects. This is a unique opportunity to experience the support of community, while maintaining a sense of privacy and focus your work requires.

My understanding of creativity expanded… I am energized about the ideas percolating in my mind.
Yvonne Rezek, visual artist


On your retreat, we welcome you into our community as a Karma Yogi on a two-hour per day or half-day schedule. Then you can use the rest of your time to renew spiritually and creatively. A private room or cabin allows you to take the space you need to do your work.

During your stay you will have access to all of the benefits of Ashram life, such as morning Hatha Yoga classes, evening satsangs, prayer rooms, delicious meals, and an atmosphere vibrant with natural and spiritual beauty.

Accommodation choices range from a self-catering retreat cabin, to multi-roomed studios, to private rooms. All options are quiet and beautiful spaces, designed for retreat. Retreat guests can also request to have a private two-hour course or workshop during their time at the ashram, the fee is $50 and can be arranged once at the Ashram.

Length of stay: minimum two weeks.

Application process: Please inquire about a retreat for more information. We will ask for a statement of intent and an overview of the project you plan to work on.

What Renewal Retreat participants have to say:

vanessa-reidI feel held here by the deeper, unseen levels: the structure and pacing of each day, week and season. Hatha, silent meals, Karma Yoga, satsang all join my body with the collective body and with the lineage. This brings me back to myself so I can go out into the world.Vanessa Reid, writer

holly-2Performing music in a spiritual environment is completely different from just giving a performance. The idea of actually doing my musical practice as an offering to the Divine came to me during my retreat. Now I want to offer my musical practice as part of my spiritual practice.Holly Blazina, musician
