Expanding our minds is an integral part of the yogis journey, which ultimately means overcoming limitations within our own minds and meeting change and challenges in all spheres – physical, intellectual and spiritual. This can be painful as we shatter our illusions.

Pilgrimmages are a time-honoured way of taking time out from everyday life to go on both a physical and spiritual journey inwards. In the company of like-minded people, we are offering the opportunity to undertake such a journey in one of the most pristine landscapes of our natural world. Golden Bay and the Abel Tasman National Park is an area renowned for its golden beaches, sculptured granite cliffs and world-renowned coastal track. Bliss and blisters are a natural outcome of this process!

The retreat will take part in two parts – you are welcome to undertake either or both.

Open your senses and mind through taking contemporary workshops such as:

  • the stages of meditation & bio-psychology
  • Advanced asanas, mudras and bandhas
  • Mandala stones workshop
  • Workshop on the similarities and differences between AM, Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Sufism, Kabbala
  • Bush walking with identification of native medicinal plants at Totaranui

A Bliss Bus will leave Nelson at 9.30 am on the 19th, if there is sufficient interest, and take retreat participants to Shambhala via several stopoff spots (see transport section). For those who miss the Bliss Bus, check other transport options too.

Those with their own transport may go in convoy.

We hope to see you there! Visit this page for more information.
