At some points in your life, everybody asks why there is no meaning and joy in life. Knowingly or unknowingly, everybody is continuously looking for the solution of the life without having any access to the main source of answers unless looking within. Yoga Essence Rishikesh provides a solid platform to find out the source of the answer to important issues of life and experience of meditation through various classical and contemporary techniques.
Yoga Essence's venue has a garden and is surrounded from all sides by many huge lush green trees with beautiful Himalayan mountain view. Each room features an en-suite bathroom with western toilet and shower with hot/cold water, and AC (at 75 USD extra in loco).
Why is it so difficult to find happiness in life? You all despair sometimes about what to do with those emotions which are so destructive in your life - the emotions that destroy your relations with others, affect your attitude and behavior and harm your physical and emotional well-being.
Usually, you repress them or dump them on someone else, both of which are very destructive, or try to replace them with positive ones which are only skin deep. However, you have no idea what transformation truly means and how to transform them.
Knowingly or unknowingly, you are continuously looking for the solution of it but you don’t have any access to the main source of answers. Just imagine how it will feel to be the master of your emotional life, rather than constantly feel like the pawn of other people and situations.
On this retreat, you will experience and be trained in many different meditation techniques and exercises that have been developed or recommended by yogis, Shiva, Buddha, Osho, Gurdjieff, and Sufi Mystics along with self-growth techniques.
Some of the techniques and exercises are more active, others more passive. Some are done with a partner, some alone, some are as a group. Some techniques use the senses (sight, sound, and touch) and all will help you to connect with your inner world.
This will involve consciously exploring the possibilities beyond the familiar center that you live in and function from. You will need to be open to and welcome new dimensions of life that will begin to unfold and manifest as you move within. All these methods are done in a light and joyful way with music so that you may dance and celebrate this transformation.
