Rebirth Retreat – Saturday 13 November 2021

As winter approaches, once again we prepare to withdraw inside, preparing for colder, shorter days. How can we use this time to nurture ourselves and the our seeds of creativity and possibility?

In the caves of the mountain occurs the transformation that takes one beyond the rational mind. This is a process of rebirth. It is like retiring into an enormous womb, to emerge anew. For those who would go to the mountain to spend time in seclusion for meditation,  who have the stamina and courage to retreat in this way, the ascent can be the preparation. (Swami Radha, Hatha Yoga; the Hidden Language, Tadasana, p59)

Love Each Other – Satsang from the Temple of Light at Yasodhara Ashram & online weekend AGM retreat –  November 2020

The theme for our weekend of gathering together this year was Joy is the Gift of Love. Swami Sukhananda started with a live Satsang, with Stine Marie, Niamh, Judith and Francesca assisting – 24 of us participated from 9 countries in our first Transatlantic live Satsang.

We reflected on questions about how we can love one another and stay together to support our growth towards the Light in a world where borders have closed and travel has become more difficult.

These are Swami Radha’s words from her last message: Stay together, love each other, support this work and the Ashram in the spirit it was started, granting each other the freedom to have their personal experience of God. Strengthen your faith, and you will have no need for seeking acceptance by othersOpen the doors of your heart… Be persistent. Suspend judgment and instead, try to understand.

You can view the Satsang here

It really was so special to have satsang from the Temple! And I would like that to happen again. (Jane, England)


Two Weekends of Yoga with the Sivananda Centre, Budapest – October 2020

There is a wisdom in the cells of the body. (Yoga of Healing by Swami Radha)

We took the themes of Yoga and Healing, Gurudasana and 2020 Vision, and My Body as a Temple for a series of workshops over two weekends.

The workshops showed me, that it is possible to look differently at my body. It raised new thoughts in me and the answers on your questions, which I never asked myself, were surprising. I hope I will be able to keep this experience at least for some time, and to have a better relationship with my body. (Budapest, October 2020)
