From Flow to Stillness
A weekend retreat with Luke Bache and Julia Nilsson at Borntorpet, Shambala Gatherings
11-13th of May 2018
Welcome to a weekend retreat with yoga, meditation, unique workshops, and 24 hours of silence. We hope to provide a safe and relaxed space where you can take a step back from the everyday stress of life, drop into your body and learn how to slow the mind, breathe and relax. We will explore the power of silence, compare stillness with movement and flow, and how we as individuals can tune into our natural state of patience and compassion to then share with others.
The workshops will be taught in English. All levels are welcome, no experience of yoga or meditation are required.
The retreat will be held at Borntorpet Shambala Gatherings, located in the forests of Bergslagen around Skinnskatteberg. Except of joing the yogaclasses and workshops you will also encounter the Shambala community who, with open arms, receives and serves the guests with a heart warming and homely family atmosphere. The food is vegan, glutenfree, inspired by Ayurveda and locally produced vegetables and honey .
