We are at the mid way point of 2017

Solistice calls us within, the new moon in Cancer calls us home, our dreams call us to change.

Cancer rules family home and nurturing.
Intuition, Empathy, Nurturing
Winter Solstice call us to do deeper into our caves, a time of dreaming and seeding some new ways, embodying our wisdom from the teachings and lessons we have walked within our lives.
Are you ready to journey deep into your soul's calling, to dream and seed?

THIS will be a place of ritual, rest, release and RESET
Want to know how?
Come join me, Darshna Siva, for a wonder-filled Solstice - New Moon Retreat set in the fold of the beautiful Kenthurst countryside. Swami's retreat centre is situated on 60 acres of tranquil bush land a mere 55 minutes away from the centre of Sydney.
Using ancient tools and nature we will prepare our minds and bodies for releasing anything that is truly holding us back from walking our true path. The moon in Cancer affords us an opportunity to come home, it is a nurturing loving moon and aligned with the Solstice very beautifully to allow us opportunity to explore deep in the womb of creation.
For the first time in many years I will be offering a Temezcal to deepen the experience of re-birthing ourselves in a cleansing and empowering way. Temezcal's are ancient sweat lodges held in the Mexhika tradition from Mexico. Within this healing space we come together as family, very Cancerian like, sharing deep in the womb of mother earth, to come out re born into our new skins and beings.
We have special offering for the moon in song and movement by the lovely Geeti Rogers, who will share her wisdom and grace with us, bringing home some beautiful teachings from her travels and practices.
There will be opportunity to connect to your body, mind and breath through yoga and meditation, using these ancient teachings we will connect back to our sacred vessel the body to release tension and stress, affording us the opportunity to rest deeper, dream deeper and go deeper than ever before.
This is yet another pivotal year in realigning to our deeper truths by letting go of structures, situations and ways of being that have held us down. If you are ready to step out in a more empowered and whole way, to really start to action your dreams and truths for the rest of the year and onwards then THIS is the place of new beginning.
Over this period, especially with a Cancer new moon we called within to do our inner work, ready to spring out when spring begins. These steps taken will be foundations for the blossoms we reap later this year and beyond. It is a transformational one-year to connect and reconnect.
