Winter Sound Immersion and Yoga Retreat with Joel Benjamin
Feb 9, 2017| $250
Chanting, toning, singing, and music have formed the very basis of all religious and spiritual practices throughout time. From the black and white world view of the conservative fundamentalist to the all embracing ecstasy of the hedonistic pagan and every soul seeker in between, all use sound to connect to their god.
Yoga is essentially a practice rooted in the technology of sound. Looking back at the ancient texts, Yoga is not described in terms of postures or breathing techniques or even meditation, but as a practice of mantra and sound.
This deep rooted relationship between sound and consciousness is the basis for all forms of Yoga. All authentic Yoga practices begin and end with sound: Namaste, Om, Shanti Shanti. Indeed it is through sound that the transformation of consciousness occurs, which remember, is the very purpose of Yoga.
So join us for an immersion into the Yoga of Sound, sonic Yogis! Over the course of four days we will chant, tone, move, breath, eat great food, and chant some more, as we explore how to better harmonize with ourselves, each other, the planet ,and universe we call home. This special retreat will raise your personal vibration and reverberate in the mind and body long after our time together at beautiful Doe Bay.
Dates: February 9-12, 2017
