Ashram Retreat Days
We invite you to experience a silent ashram day retreat; a chance for you to take some time out for yourself and to deepen your spiritual practice.
What is involved? An ashram retreat day is a day to nourish the body, calm the mind and get in touch with your true self, growing in awareness of the Divine within. The day comprises of spiritual practices from the Yogic path, a combination of gentle Hatha Yoga and various types of meditation and reflection, under guidance. Everyone is welcome and no experience necessary. The yogic path offers us practical ways of growing in spiritual awareness in a chaotic world, to open oneself to union with God (the Christ within), with people and with the natural world. A day retreat at Anam Ashram aims to help participants in the practice of the asanas (Hatha Yoga), contemplation in action (karma yoga), bhakti yoga (union through devotion) and jnana yoga (union through knowledge e.g. wisdom teachings from the mystics or scriptures).
Dates of upcoming retreats: Saturdays 16th October; 20th November & 11th December 2021 from 9.30am – 3.30pm. (ONLINE & IN PERSON PLACES AVAILABLE)
Cost of day retreat: Recommended donation €35 for in-person retreat; online is donation only. Concessions available for in-person retreat, please contact us. Bring a packed lunch, tea/coffee/soup provided.
