6-Day Yoga and Meditation Retreat with Swami Anandakumar
With gentle and expert guidance, in silence and in stillness we will become increasingly aware of the connections between our external and the internal worlds; as the purpose of yoga, as well as of the whole of life.

About the Event
Besides the teachings, this will be a largely silent retreat, a rare opportunity to go beyond our social personalities into our Selves.
As with all our retreats, there will also be morning yoga classes, yoga nidra, karma yoga, mantra and plenty of time to integrate our experiences and rest in the peaceful environment.
What past participants have said:
"The outstanding memory is of immediate, deep peace and relaxation which was evident on everyone’s face- and that was from the first day on. My stress ridden sleep cycle became one of deep, dream rich sleep. My dreams were informative and a list of them in the light of day is manageable and will tidy up personal areas of my life which will benefit from these expositions." Ann
"The Meditation retreat with Anandakumar is a life-changing experience. He has a wonderful no-nonsense manner and articulates the subject extremely well. I now view every meditation practice as an adventure." Audrey
"Each time I attend a meditation retreat led by Anandakumar - I come a little closer to my Self. AK's wise and expert guidance supports me to find my own path within and to feel sure that each time I sit, there is a wealth of new discoveries to be made. With immense gratitude to be able to do a retreat in such an auspicious, tranquil setting at Western Creek." Mantradharma, Yoga Teacher.
"We are so lucky to have such a depth of teaching from Anandakumar and at a place such as Atma Darshan where theses teachings and yoga practices can be practised with like-minded people. The setting of this retreat space is wonderful - Dolorite mountains, ancient trees, tree ferns and clear running creeks. Local produce from the farm and local areas just
added to the energy and experience." Sharon Johnson/Shoonyachaitanya

Sw. Anandakumar is an exceptional teacher and exponent of meditation. He has studied yoga and a wide variety of yogic disciplines for over thirty years. Swami Anandakumar has spent many years teaching and studying at the Bihar School of Yoga, India and teaching internationally.

"Meditation is simply the means to get nearer to stillness within that can view all things with equanimity, calm and peace."
"It's not so much the course of events, but how we react to them that defines our contentment, equilibrium and character."
"A rich inner life changes the way that we relate to everything else in life." - Anandakumar
6 days is a great length of time to find out more about yourself, develop your practice and feel the benefits.
There will be quite a lot of practice and there will be some intensity. But the question of sitting for a long time need not be a concern because of the way that practice is approached. Chairs and other supports will also be available. Asana, pranayama, yoga nidra, karma yoga, havan, kirtan, time in nature & periods of silence will all be part of our days together.
