LIFE PURPOSE YOGA RETREAT ~ Exploring your Dharma Path
August 25, 2017 - August 27, 2017
|We all have choices in life… and every choice we make, every action we take, every road we travel, leads us along our life journey, in an endless and infinite number of directions. Having embarked on a path of Yoga, you have taken many steps to get you here, and each step has been meaningful…each step purposeful…each step leading you to the ever present Now…
As you prepare to take another step forward on your journey, I would like to extend this invitation, to retrace the steps that have brought you here, and embrace a rich and truly rewarding experience of self exploration and personal enquiry…Exploring your Life Purpose. When we choose to add Purpose and Meaning to our life, then we add a richness and depth into everything we share, touching those that cross our path. Through Svadhyaya (Self study) we are able to understand ourselves more deeply, our personal journey and the choices we make.
There are several Universal Laws, which when we choose to follow, create a greater flow with life and the Universal Consciousness. One of these laws is the Universal Law of Dharma, and according to this law, we are all here in this life for a reason, and many of us may actively choose to discover and explore, what that reason or Purpose is. Each of us has something unique and special to offer the world and to offer ourselves, and it simply takes our conscious effort and awareness to begin to explore what our True Purpose in life is. This in itself is a choice.
The Life Purpose Yoga weekend is designed to allow an introspective exploration of life, to bring a greater awareness to your unique life journey, with the aim of discovering and defining your Life Purpose. The weekend will itself involve unpacking your life, from your earliest memory to present day, exploring every significant milestone, exploring and unfolding everything that has affected you, changed you, shaped you and made you into the person that you are today.
During the yoga sessions and weekend workshops I will aim to facilitate your process, and provide a supportive, nurturing and safe environment in which to explore your inner and outer worlds more deeply.
Ways that this might occur:
• Mapping of your life journey, bringing greater awareness to your cycles, habits and patterns.
• Looking at issue/s and areas of significance, and seeing how they relate to other significant areas of your life.
• Finding what strengths, gifts, talents, qualities, and possibly hidden resources you have to work with.
• Finding relevant and appropriate techniques, tools and modalities that you may wish to use to promote further self-discovery and self-awareness.
• Piece all the information together into a Mission Statement by which to live by.
What you will gain from the workshop will vary, but if each of you takes just one thing with you to make a positive shift in your lives, in order to help yourself and others around you, then you will have ultimately GAINED.
My role as facilitator is not to find the answers, or to claim to know the answers, but to guide and facilitate your journey of discovery during the weekend, assisting you in discovering, revealing and/or expanding your understanding of yourself, your life and the world around you.
Your role as a participant of the weekend is to be as open and honest about yourself as you can, and be open to the process.
