A Soulful Sojourn in Auroville
Conscious Retreat for The Soul
Auroville Edition
Jan 21-26th, 2023

Do you feel that you are stuck in a loop? That similar experiences, relationship issues, health problems & outcomes keep repeating themselves? You see days go by, turning into weeks, weeks into months, months into years, and feel that nothing changes?

 After working with hundreds of practitioners who feel similarly, I have found the below to be the most likely culprits: 

  • You stopped Loving yourself & do not treat yourself as your #1 priority
  • You let your inner child die and you do not do things anymore that brings you joy, a sense of adventure & freedom
  • You are not addressing the core issues that are troubling you and that keep showing up in various forms
  • You know your issues but do not have the courage to take that first step in bringing about change. You worry whether or not you can face your new reality.

How about we change this story in 2023 and help you take charge of your story and your happiness? 

Through the course of this 6 day Yoga & Wellness Retreat Auroville, I will help you to take stock of things, identifying the barriers in your path that are holding you back, do a life audit and then together we will work on learning how to bring down those barriers.

I have deliberately chosen to hold this yoga retreat during the First New Moon of 2023 (Jan 21st night) in the “City of Dawn” Auroville (Pondicherry, South India) as it will be symbolic of the new chapter in your lives and New Moon is considered to be the perfect time to plant new seeds and intentions. 

Check out a short glimpse of our last retreat in Auroville below.

What can you gain from this Yoga Retreat:

    • Start 2023 with a renewed commitment to your health & happiness 
    • A potentially life changing experience that can sow the seeds of permanent change in you

Why Auroville?

Auroville is an international community of spiritual seekers 15 mins from Pondicherry where people from across the globe live in peace and harmony. At present, it is home to around 3000 people from over 75 nationalities. What better place than here to begin your journey of self discovery?

Auroville also holds a special place in my life.

Having taken a break from my life back in Canada in 2011, I was struggling with the pivotal question of what to do next. Should I go back to a corporate job where I traded my time for money or is there another model, another way of life that could bring me greater joy? It was then that I visited Auroville in 2013 and what was supposed to be a brief visit, turned into a 1.5 year long stay. I volunteered at Buddha Garden and headed the Auroville Retreats program among other projects. And ultimately, I was propelled on to my spiritual path. 

Since then, almost every year I live for a few weeks in Auroville and soak in what the community has to offer. And now, I have the opportunity to share all this with you through my second Conscious Retreat For the Soul in Auroville.

"The conscious retreat for the soul" was a refreshing change from the routine. In the lap of nature, the retreat provided me with a host of activities to dive deep within. It provided hands-on experience of different tools to tame my mind. It was great to experience cacao ecstatic dance, Osho dynamic meditation, Shamanic breathwork apart from my all-time favourite
Hatha Yoga and Restorative Yoga.

All in all, the best experience in my personal spiritual journey. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for all those who want to be more conscious, mindful and connect with their higher self. The 6 days spent with YogAmoreShala in Auroville were one of the most awe inspiring and magical days.
