Meditation Retreat in North Wales January 2019
Wednesday, January 3, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - Sunday, January 13, 2019 @ 4:00 pm£495
This new ten day retreat offers a unique opportunity for an immersive experience of meditation, expertly guided and facilitated for a small group of 10 people.
Each student will be individually mentored on the course.
The course will be conducted using guided meditation recordings by Dr. Kumar.
The course will be facilitated by Anna Bhushan, an experienced teacher and teacher trainer. Using carefully sequenced recordings, participants will experience the depth of meditating with Dr. Kumar’s voice and guidance. Dr. Kumar draws on his own vast experiential and theoretical knowledge of yoga to guide us through every step of the technique.
The course is designed to be a low cost alternative for those who may find it difficult to attend the Winter Retreat in India.
First retreat or reconnecting
This is an excellent first retreat for those who have attended a weekend course, eight week course or teacher training and would like to have a more sustained experience of meditating in silence and developing to a more advanced level of practice.
For those who have previously attended a retreat this will be an opportunity to reconnect, invigorate and develop their practice.
Whether you are new to meditation or an experienced practitioner, this course will take you through from beginner to advanced stages of practice as outlined by the sage Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras, starting with the cultivation of tranquility through observation of the natural breath and then developing deep insight within the body and mind.

Mindfulness is cultivated at three levels of the mind, the conscious, subconscious and unconscious – bringing deep transformation and noticeable changes in daily life.
