Jivamukti Senior Teacher Retreat | The Global Satsang with
Petros says: „This week is something s p e c i a l. A possibility to experience both depth and playfulness of yoga provided by some of the most experienced Jivamukti teachers worldwide … in a stunning environment – Salzburg just around the corner, lake Chiemsee right in front of the door, Bavarian Alps all around. Hang out with people who walk the walk!“
Lady Ruth says: „Sometimes it’s necessary to reflect on one’s life in order to see where change or improvement is needed. Other times rather than looking backwards it’s best to fill oneself to the brim with positive energy by spiritual practices and satsang. This special gathering will be an opportunity for both with the added benefit of feeling supported by coming together with each other and with the stunning natural surroundings.“
Gabriela says: „The bhavana (or the mood) of Satsang is what I love the most about my work. We gather together in the name of something higher than the societal norms and forms manipulated by the media, in the name of something bigger than our own petty selfish desires and personal dramas. We gather to uplift each other with inspiring discourses, meaningful music, healing asana, sacred chants and heartfelt poetry. And to hang out with likeminded people interested in living a life in harmony with Mother Nature, in truth, integrity and Love is the fastest Sadhana there is. That’s what this retreat will be about.“
