Join us for a very special experiential retreat, integrating elements from the world’s earth-honoring wisdom traditions to foster personal and social transformation. With the sacred land of the Sivananada Ashram on Paradise Island, Bahamas, as our classroom, we explore how the ancient practices of wilderness retreat, vision quest, and ceremony help us fulfill our role as stewards of the earth. Deepen your practice in the company of sandy beaches, gentle ocean waves, tropical gardens, and vibrant sunrises and sunsets!
Drawing upon meditation and qigong practices, and informed by direct contact with many of the world’s most powerful spiritual lineages, we experience the magical blending of Buddhist, Taoist, Tantric, Vedantic, and Shamanic traditions to arrive at deep relaxation, presence, and connection to our inner selves.
With John P. Milton as your teacher and Douglas Canterbury-Counts, PhD, as your guide, this weekend of Natural Renewal is offered as two satsang and four afternoon workshops.
There are a variety of accommodation options to suit your particular needs, from our economically priced camping spaces and dormitory style housing, to shared and private rooms, to deluxe beachfront suites. You are sure to find an option that fits both your budget and your comfort level. Plan to arrive the day before the course begins and depart the day after it ends.
Aside from John's valuable teachings, you can expect to enjoy the stunning natural beauty of the land, delicious vegetarian food, twice-daily yoga classes, exposure to a traditional yogic lifestyle, other teachers and presenters that will be here, and the ashram’s 50-year history and message of peace and unity!
