Kirtan is the practice of call and response chanting. Guests will have the opportunity to share their voices, dance, or simply relax and receive the sound. It is like a meditation through music. With the repetition of the mantras we are able to get out of our heads and tap into a sense of ease and joy. Jivamukti Yoga is creative vinyasa flow, with meditation, mantra, hand-on assists, and philosophy woven throughout the class.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Retreat Includes: 2 nights accommodation, vegetarian meals, yin and flow yoga classes with Lana (suitable for all levels), morning meditation, Saturday evening kirtan (Call and Response Devotional Chanting), one infrared Sauna Session, use of Shanti’s Amenities (Wellness Tea Bar, WiFi, Labyrinth, Hammocks, Canoes and Kayaks, and Walking and Cycling Routes).

Lana discovered yoga at the age of 15 in Red Deer, Alberta. She dabbled in many styles but fell in love with Jivamukti Yoga and completed her 300 Hour training in 2009. Later that year she studied Yin Yoga with Tracey Soghrati, a 40 hour certification. She continues to study with many inspiring teachers including Sarah Powers, David Life and Sharon Gannon, and the radiant community of Toronto. As a teacher, Lana strives to offer a safe and nourishing space for students and to offer insights that are relatable. Her classes are a mix of expressive asana, hands-on assists, and philosophy. Also a musician and theatre artist, Lana merges her love of sound and Sanskrit with the practice of kirtan. ‘Lana has recorded two albums: Invocation (2013) and Reverence (2017). She loves to travel to communities around the world sharing the magic of mantra!’

Retreat Spotlight: Silent Heart Meditation & Gentle Yoga Retreat with Manu

September 8th – 10th (3 day silent retreat) or September 8th – 13th (6 day silent retreat)

Come to Wolfe Island and savour the silence, serenity, and stillness.

“It was a truly wonderful experience for me, and I am so happy that I was able to stay for the 6 days. I found that Manu’s approach to both introduce and enhance meditation practices for the retreat participants truly supported our collective energies. Of course, the beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful food at Shanti also made the retreat unforgettable. As someone relatively new to meditation, I was also much encouraged by your words and feel more confident that “slowly, slowly,” I will feel and understand more about how the mind works, helping me to go deeper in my own practice.” ~ Carolyn

This unique offering is a wonderful opportunity to retreat with Manu Akshobhia, a very gifted teacher and facilitator. The popularity of his retreats brings him back to Shanti for the 9th consecutive season offering a 3 or 6 day silent retreat.

Give yourself the gift of going within as well as time to soak in the beauty and wonderment of the nature that surrounds us here at Shanti.

Manu will offer a truly inspiring silent meditation and yoga retreat. He will share simple but powerful tools to begin or help deepen your meditation practice. A regular meditation practice can help to navigate life with greater joy, lightness and ease.

The retreat will also be infused with gentle and restorative energy yoga classes and yoga nidra.

About Manu 

Manu Akshobhia (Emmanuel) has been studying and practicing Indian and Tibetan yogic teachings for more than twenty years. Some of the main influences on his path are Agama, Hridaya yoga and the Path of the Heart of Prem Baba (Awaken Love). He has been teaching workshops, intensives and retreats around the world since 2000. The main thread that has guided Manu through this quest of life is the work on purifying and harmonizing the Heart, and how to open deeply to spirituality and at the same time become a better human being. Manu has a wealth of information to share and inspire you on your journey.

 

 

 

 

The Importance of Silence 

Mauna (silence) is a very important part of this retreat. We will start after the evening talk on the first day and go until the end of the last session on either Sunday or Wednesday. A lot of energy and ego goes into our speech, and to refrain from it is a great support for meditation and improving the process of self-discovery. We keep silent during the retreat in order to quiet our mind and maintain a serene, peaceful environment for everyone. This can be difficult at times, but most people find it a powerful and wonderful experience. You will find that you begin to cherish this silence and will learn how to be comfortable with it. Training ourselves to walk, move, and perform daily activities quietly leads to a calm and graceful experience. Maintaining silence is a way of developing self-discipline and a deeper, more compassionate understanding for all things.

Retreat Spotlight: Summer Sacred Relationships Retreat

Come explore, play and transform the way you view sexuality, partnership and love! 

This retreat offering (and its facilitators) has been so well received the past 2 seasons at Shanti, that we have decided to offer it twice this season: Summer and Fall!

We are absolutely delighted to welcome back, dear friends and inspiring facilitators, Tiffany and Kristof!

Monday, June 26th – Wednesday, June 28th for a retreat exploration and introduction to Sacred Relationships.

“From the moment you pull up to the picturesque property, you feel your daily stresses begin to wash away. Myself being the yogi, my partner didn’t know what to expect, but he was quickly reassured by the number of people ‘out of their comfort zone’. The inspiring and real teachers guided us through meditation, open communication and partner yoga exercises with sincerity and acceptance. Everything is optional so you’re free to experience the waterfront, water trampoline, kayaks, canoes, hammocks or lounge at you leisure. The yoga was guided and accessible to everyone and the session on tantric sexuality was super interesting. All you need to bring is an open heart and mind, and you’ll leave recharged and inspired with a better vision of yourself and your relationship! We will definitely be heading back to the sacred relationships retreat!” ~ Kat, Retreat Guest  
Some of the topics covered will include:

~ Tantric Sexuality – How do we remember the Sacredness of Sexuality? This will be an exploration and an unlearning of some of the conditionings and limiting beliefs we hold around sexuality, relationships and the sexes.

~ Sexology – Mechanics, tools and practices for more pleasurable, sensual, prolonged and orgasmic lovemaking for both men and women. We will also discuss the importance of the sexual energy for health and well-being and the benefits of channeling and directing this energy.

~ Ayurvedic considerations – Ojas (Vigor/Vital force); Maintaining and replenishing sexual energy; Simple aphrodisiacs and reproductive tonics; Dietary & Lifestyle considerations

~ Yoga practice – You will learn ‘partner yoga’ and the beauty of practicing, playing and connecting as one on the mat. We will also introduce a series of specific yoga asanas that will assist in the control, movement and awareness of the potency of the sexual energy, as well as their healing potential for the reproductive organs.

~ Meditation – Together we will explore meditation practices that focus upon opening our hearts to connection, pure love and deep intimacy with ourselves, our lovers and in our general relation to others.

~ Breathwork/Pranayama – An introduction into specific breathing techniques that can bring deepened presence and connect with our own life force and that which resides in our partner. These will also offer the benefit of amplifying sexual energy and guiding it to flow harmoniously through our system.

~ Compassionate Communication – We will offer ways to remember and maintain empathic, loving and connected communication with your partner, how to deeply listen and honor your own needs and the needs of the other, and how to move forward without blame or shame from times of discord and disconnection.

What is a Sacred Relationship? by Andrew Burrows

Last month, Shanti was blessed with the return of two good long time friends of ours, Tiffany and Kristof, to offer their inspired and annual Sacred Relationships retreat here on Wolfe Island. In partnership, the two have created and continue to shape Living in the Self, the space for the home of their offerings and the place through which they inspire others to live in an authentic and tantric way. Tantra is a Sanskrit word that means “woven together.” Buddhist and Hindu practitioners of meditation use “sexual union as a metaphor for weaving together the physical and the spiritual: weaving person to person, and humanity to the divine. The purpose is to become one with God.”(1) With this at the forefront, Tiffany and Kristof’s retreat here is continuously laced with different techniques and exercises to bring about union and intimacy – both union within and with oneself, but also with another, as two souls come together to celebrate, in connection, a sacred relationship.

I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to partake in bits and pieces of their retreat here a few weekends back. I feel especially blessed to have participated with my partner who, as of this season, I live and work with here at Shanti. Together and among other couples, we were sweetly guided by Tiffany and Kristof through a variety of partner yoga postures and exercises, breathing techniques, the creation of a relationship manifesto, and a ritual involving foot massage and the whisperings of what I like to call sweet everythings, also known as adorations.

I now understand a little bit more when I see the couples of these retreats leave Shanti with a detectable lightness and palpable brightness to them. I now understand a little bit more how when they say that this weekend changed their lives and their relationships, this is absolutely and indeed the case. Spending the few sessions together with my partner in this sacred context was such an enriching experience. Synchronizing breathing and gazing into the eyes of another with one hand on our heart and one hand on theirs – a beautiful practice of connection, or reconnection, and union.

Being in a relationship is such a rich experience, one that is constantly changing and unfolding all on its own. It is an experience that can be as organic as we allow, and can also be the arena in our lives where we learn the most about ourselves. Although we all come into this world alone and leave in this same way, we are forever in relation with those around us – firstly with our mothers who gave us life, as well as with our fathers, our siblings, relatives, friends, teachers, and also with strangers.

Undeniably, we are social creatures, and Tiffany and Kristof’s retreats here remind us of exactly this. Not only do they remind us of this, but they remind us to enjoy it, and to completely embrace the sweetness and the sacredness of human to human connection – eye to eye. They remind us to embrace the highlights and joys and the celebration of relationship, but also the challenges, resistances and difficulties that arise and inevitably show up. Embracing the totality of the human (and human-to-human) experience, all highs and all lows, and all else in between, is what guests of this retreat can expect to take home with them.

Next year, fortunately for all, Tiffany and Kristof will be back to host two Sacred Relationships retreats: June 26-28 and September 29-October 1. Get in touch with us at Shanti today to make your reservation either by e-mail (info@shantiretreat.ca) or by telephone (613-777-0247). We look forward to welcoming you and yours.
