WHAT GUIDED RETREAT PARTICIPANTS HAVE TO SAY:

“Yasodhara Ashram offers me that unique opportunity to step back for awhile from the business and stresses of everyday life. A chance to pause and reflect on who I am and where I’m going but most importantly it gives me a chance to ask who do I want to be and how can I live that.” JM, Stilling the Mind Retreat

The time I spent at the Ashram has deepened my connection to my higher Self and awakened a compassion for others. I have come away with many insights and clearer vision for the direction I am heading in my life. The beach, the mossy green forest, the consistent light and playful wildlife has inspired me greatly. The wisdom and grace of the devotees and teachers was a great thing to immerse in for a weekend.  JF, Stilling the Mind Retreat

I was in a stuck place. My grief and sadness had become a habit that I did not know how to change. Working with the practices – Divine Light Invocation, Mantra, Pranayama and Mind Watch – helped me to become receptive to insights that actually came through working in the garden. Clearing a bed to prepare it for new seeds was a tangible way for me to see how to let go of my losses and grief and to joyously anticipate a new beginning. AG, Yoga & Healing Retreat

The time spent here really taught me to nurture my own voice and my inner self. The group I was in really inspired me to become a more compassionate person.AO, Yoga & Healing Retreat
