Balance

The Puruṣarthas - The Four Aims
A Life in Balance

Online Weekend Retreat - Yoga, Study, Mantra, Embodiment
with Elena Jessup and Donna Raftery

What does your heart desire?
Are you living in alignment with your purpose?
Do your actions lead you closer to your spiritual goals?
Are you challenged by balancing your inner world and outer world?

How can Yogic wisdom support our journey inward and outward?

Join us for a unique immersion into
Puruṣartha - The Four Aims or Spiritual Purposes
and create a life in balance.

The Four Aims are:

-Dharma
-Artha
-Kama
-Mokṣa

Each day we will dive into each of the fundamental aspects of these aims and see what they mean to us in practice. We will explore how we can find a life of balance using this knowledge and build an intention for 2021 - living fully, in alignment and staying on track.

The immersion includes:

-live presentation of the Aims
-live yoga sessions
-sanskrit sounding and pronounciation
-journalling and visualisation
-meditation to invoke and empower
-discussions to connect and utilise the knowledge

We hope to facilitate an experience of deep embodiment of this ancient wisdom to guide us at this time.

Donna Raftery 500hr YOGA ALLIANCE PROFESSIONAL

yoga | asana | pranayama | meditation | mantra

awaken to your essence nature moving with aliveness, creativity and expansion through integration of breath and attention enabling deep release, fall into stillness.

Donna discovered her own practice through various styles of yoga including Astanga Vinyasa, Hatha, Iyengar and Hot Yoga, before finally finding the Vajrasati School set up by Jim Tarran in 2000. The combination of yoga philosophy and embodied practices such as meditation, mantra and pranayama gave her access to the depth she was looking for. After being a student for 18 years she went on to complete her 500hr Yoga Alliance Teacher Training. Her aim is simply to share this practice as a means to realise the ultimate potential in all of us. To integrate mind, body and soul on and off the mat. To live fully, holistically and happily. Classes are crafted with a meditative feel, through movements of the body - āsana (poses) and the subsequent releasing of tension and stress through the breath. Instructions are guides towards an experience rather than a goal - authentic and heart centred. Weaving some anatomy and philosophy throughout - pointing towards the deeper aspects of our being.
