Here Now Satsang Five Day Retreat on Bowen Island, BC, Canada
August 2nd-7th, 2017
Rivendell Retreat Centre, Bowen Island, BC, Canada

Come and be included in this opportunity to deepen into Selfhood. If you are interested in awakening, conscious embodiment, allowing freedom to become foremost in your awareness, solving mysteries of challenges in your life, tantra, yoga, being authentic, or/and Living Abundantly, this Satsang Retreat is for you.

It is ‘normal’ in Canela’s retreats for everyone to fall into deep, aware Peace, Love, and Humour…and then to continue deepening in That.  Take advantage of this beautiful retreat space, on this so natural and nourishing island, to care for yourself and all that is – in no-seperation, every bit that you allow for yourSelf, is shared in the same instance with All.

Each day will include an hour of ‘Authentic Movement’ or Kundalini Yoga lead by Canela.

Part I:  ‘Including the Humanness’  Teachings/Satsang
August 2nd – 4th – Limited to 10 Participants

This is a rare opportunity for people who are interested in deepening their ‘listening skills’ in each moment towards themSelves and what appears as the other, the world, from a Satsang perspective.  Time will be spent in experiencing the energetics of  ‘Being With What Is’ in a non-intrusive, yet inclusive listening mode, supporting embracing Self and/or exploration of the human aspect of Self.  This two day retreat will be of particular interest to those people who are in the ‘supporting others’ field – Life Coaches, Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Teachers, Facilitators and also anyone who has interest in: What is life like in the awakened state of being? Experiencing yourSelf as holding a space of Satsang will also be available and there will also be time for learning about ‘Toning’ and practicing that (deeply healing).

– Starts at 2pm Aug. 2nd and ends on Aug. 4th after lunch. Thursday Aug. 3rd will start at 10am and finish at 9pm with a 2 hour break after lunch.

Part II:  ‘Here Now Silent Satsang’ Three Day Retreat
