    Anytime after 3.30pm - 9.15pm

    Includes Devi Havan, Yoga Class, Delicious vegetarian dinner and 2 hours of high octane kirtan with Satyananda Yoga musicians and kirtanists.

    The practice of bhakti (yogic devotion) opens the heart and helps one to tune into the joyful aspect of divine nature. Mangrove Yoga Ashram has long held the tradition of bhakti; kirtan and chanting are regular sadhanas (spiritual practices) here, resulting in a highly charged environment which is dedicated to awakening and sustaining higher yogic experience.

    All Welcome

    Healing Sounds

    Weekend (5pm Friday to 3pm Sunday - view arrival time options)
    with Swami Chintanshuddhi

    Retreat special 25% off

    Mantra and kirtan awaken the emotional personality, a dimension that is often blocked from an early age. To sublimate the emotions one needs to open the emotional body, otherwise there is slow progress on the spiritual path.

    Removal of emotional blockages leads to emotional, mental and physical healing, as well as expanding the pranamaya kosha (vital energy sheath). Working with kirtan, mantra and meditation will also awaken anahata and vishuddhi chakras, which are vital energy centres associated with sound, feeling and sublimation.

    This weekend will revolve around kirtan workshops (on the lawn, weather permitting), extended kirtan (on Saturday evening), nada yoga sessions with chakra meditation, beeja mantra, gayatri mantra, and lots more kirtan! There will also be special 'healing sounds' yoga nidra sessions, as well as early morning asana (yoga posture) classes.

    About the teacher: Swami Chintanshuddhi trained for many years at Bihar School of Yoga, where there was a strong emphasis on kirtan, mantra and meditation. She is now based at Mangrove, where she teaches these practices on a regular basis, as well as conducting various workshops in Australia.

Good character is not formed in a week or a month. It is created little by little, day by day. Protracted and patient effort is needed to develop good character.
