Shishya Shivaratri Retreat
Meditation Retreat featuring Shivaratri (The Night of Shiva)
March 2-6 2019
Downingtown Yoga & Meditation Center Downingtown PA
Five days of meditation – don’t miss it! First, Swami Nirmalananda leads two days of practices and teachings to prepare you for the holiest night of the year, Shivaratri, which is Monday March 2019. Then you have the opportunity to join Swamiji and millions around the world in late-night or all-night practices of chanting, meditation and story-telling. This inner adventure leads to profound openings and amazing clarity.
Your last two days focus on you settling into your new state. Yoga, chanting and meditations support your process, along with specialized teachings that prepare you to take it all home with you. You get lots of down time for your deepening awareness to percolate through. You will find that your mind settles into a profound yogic transparency, allowing the light of your own Divinity to shine through.

The quality of life is not based on how much you do but on how much you let go; not on how far you go, but on how open and easy you are. Svaroopa® yoga dissolves physical limitations as well as mental, emotional and spiritual blocks, to open up the way you live inside your own skin.
