10 Day Yoga & Meditation Retreat in India with Wendy and Darin - Moving into Being
Join us on a journey to the mystical land of Goa India, nestled on the coast of the Arabian Sea. Nurture and nourish your body, mind and soul in a community of kindred spirits, while enjoying sun, sand and sea all in the exotic setting of India – the birthplace of yoga. Wendy and Darin, co-creators of Shanti Retreat, will draw upon many years of study and practice to provide insight into the world of yoga and meditation. Twice daily yoga classes will take place in the serene yoga spaces surrounded by rice and buffalo fields. Off the mat enjoy a stroll on one of the many nearby white sand beaches lined with coconut palms or peruse wares from Tibetan and Kashmiri traders at the famous Anjuna market. Your home away from home will be Samata Retreat Center. At the heart of the property is a 150 year old mango tree. Surrounding the tree are lush gardens filled with birdsong, occasional monkey visits, and fly-by’s of the giant hornbill. During the afternoon free time, cool off in the beautiful teardrop shaped pool or enjoy a massage at Samata Spa, included in your retreat package. Please email all inquiries to Lacey, Shanti's International retreat coordinator.

It’s a beautiful thing to let go of feeling self-conscious when singing with others and allow your voice to blend with the group. The weekend also includes ample free time to relax, take a walk in nature or enjoy an infrared sauna session. Please see the More Information document below for rates, schedule and details.

Time for some spring cleaning! Join Angela Jervis-Read and take a few days this season to clean your house – your spirit house, that is.

Over the weekend we will manipulate the flow of energy through asana, acupressure, pranayama and intention. The spectrum of our emotions also reside in our meridian network. One can expect a shift not only in body but also in one’s emotional landscape. Create space in body, mind and heart and leave this retreat feeling whole again.

Tapping into Desires that Serve You with Loren Crawford
We all have desires. Some traditions teach that desires are the root to suffering. But desires are necessary and inherent to our very prosperity and even our survival. The challenge though is attachment to our desires - their outcomes, and when beliefs are mistaken for desires. Tapping into Desires that Serve You uses activities and practices that help you discover the desires that are aligned with your soul, not simply your beliefs. You will reach in deep and create a mission statement for your life - a dharma code. You will have tools to take home with you that help you incorporate your dharma code into all aspects of your life. Doing this rich reflection will help you arrive a more joy-filled life.

Goddess Tara Retreat with Antoaneta Gotea - Awaken the Power of Compassion Within
Darin and Wendy are honored and delighted to welcome one their teachers, Antoaneta Gotea, for the first time to Shanti. This very unique 3-day Tara retreat filled with gentle hatha yoga and inspiring teachings will empower you with several simple and effective practices, from esoteric and Western texts, to awaken the power of compassion within yourself. Living with an open heart can be a daily reality. We often reach out for love to fulfill our personal needs and desires. This is natural; however this is just a limited way of perceiving love. In this retreat, you will learn how to transcend your limited personal relationship with love to reveal something much more profound; an impersonal, unchanging, and infinite dimension within yourself. This deeper dimension of love is not asking for something in return. It is a helping hand for those in suffering. When your love is not your love anymore, but you are love and wisdom, then you will come to understand the true power of compassion. This retreat will assist you in attuning more with your heart than the mind resulting in greater insight into the healing power of truth, love, kindness and compassion. A part of this retreat will include an opportunity to observe noble silence. Please see the More Information document below for rates, schedule and details.

Join Ali Alexander and Debra Black for a nourishing weekend retreat of yoga asana practice and meditation. Our physical yoga practices will be conducted in flowing, yin and restorative styles. We will be practicing meditation both as a stand-alone practice as well as in some of the movement sessions. The intention of the weekend is to recognize the places both in our physical-body layer and in our mental/emotional layers where we are limiting our ability to live fully in the world. By recognizing where our limitations exist, we have an opportunity to explore those boundaries and see if we can expand safely beyond that place. The weekend will provide time each day for personal reflection, interaction with nature around the center and there will also be a set time for personal questions or inquiries with Ali and Debra.
