One Day Ashram Retreat with David Halpin June 2018
Join David Halpin on this One Day Ashram retreat at The Sanctuary.
The retreat takes place on Saturday June 9th from 10am to 4pm and offers you a chance to connect with your inner harmony and the World around you.
The concept of Ashram comes from the Indian Spiritual tradition, specifically the Hindu tradition. Today in India as well as Hindu ashram’s there are Christian, Buddhist and interfaith ashrams. A person would go to an Ashram to be immersed in Spirituality, Meditation and opening oneself to experience God.
A typical Day in an ashram involves exercise, several sessions of meditation, deep relaxation, prayer, a lot of silence and reflection.
This day retreat will follow a similar pattern of what occurs in an Ashram in India. It will begin at 10.00am, there will be some Yoga style exercises, several sessions of meditation, deep relaxation, a little teaching on the mystical traditions of the world and Satsang – a short reflection at the conclusion of the day.
