Join us for an inspiring weekend of Yoga and Bhakti (chant).
Shanti is pleased to welcome many talented musicians including David Newman (Durga Das), Brenda McMorrow, Adam Bauer, Lana Sugarman, John De Kadt, and Lea Longo.
Co-creators of Shanti, Wendy and Darin, will be leading the Hatha yoga classes.
David Newman will facilitate a mini-workshop Sunday morning exploring the nature of be-ing, unity, love and self-inquiry. The gathering is offered with the intention of offering insight and inspiration for nourishing one's inner longing for spiritual truth and for living with an open heart. It will comprise wisdom sharing’s, chanting, Q & A, and discussion.
Shanti, is a Sanskrit word that means peace. A sanctuary where guests can pause, reflect, and connect in community with kindred spirits.
Shanti’s nurturing atmosphere provides guests with the inspiration to delve deeper into the gift of yoga and chant and the possibilities for transformation and growth.
Savour the opportunity to pause from the ebb and flow of daily life.
RETREAT INCLUDES: Daily yoga practice, guided silent morning walks, afternoon meditation, local organic vegetarian meals, great swimming, fun on the water tramp, use of canoe and kayaks, detoxifying infra-red sauna, and waterside bonfire.
All activities are optional of course…it’s your retreat. You may choose to just hang out in a hammock or find your sacred space along 1000 feet of private shoreline.
