What better time to saturate yourself with Light than during the magic of summer solstice? In this retreat we explore the practice of the Divine Light Invocation, along with relaxation techniques, visualizations and meditations on Light.

The Divine Light Invocation is a standing meditation that combines the body, breath and mind in a concise practice of visualizing Divine Light, recognizing the Light within and learning how to share this Light with others. It is one of the most integral practices at Yasodhara Ashram.

Journey Into The Bharata Natyam Dance Tradition
Aug 21 @ 4:30 pm – Aug 27 @ 10:30 am
Journey Into The Bharata Natyam Dance Tradition @ Yasodhara Ashram

Aug 21 – 27

Join artistic director Anusha Fernando of Shakti Dance Vancouver who will be leading an intensive journey into the traditional dance form of Bharata Natyam. This beloved classical form of dance from Southern India is characterized by humility, discipline, grace and rigorous technique. Over the course of the retreat we will juxtapose stilless with movement and explore energy, expression and devotion.

In the Eastern Teachings the body is seen as a spiritual tool, a way to be in touch with devotional feelings of the heart. It gives a way to express these through a beautiful ancient language of dance and storytelling.

Due to the intensive nature of this course, it will be open only to those with Bharata Natyam experience or anyone with Indian dance background.

There will be an open workshop on Saturday, August 22nd for dancers of all abilities. This will be followed by an inspirational evening of Bharata Natyam dance offerings in the Temple of Light.

Cost: $TBD; $100 deposit (See our Cancellation Policy)
Package includes dinner on day of arrival, shared accommodation, three meals daily, morning hatha, workshops and evening satsangs. Optional hatha class and breakfast are included on day of departure.
