ENTERING 2012: SPIRIT TOUR OF INDIA, GREECE WORKSHOPS, MORE…

SPIRIT TOUR OF INDIA: FEB 2012 (Click here for details)

Starting our yatra in Chennai, we will tour the spiritual landscape of Tamil Nadu and its magnificent temple architecture.

Continuing on through Mahabalipuram, we come to the quaint, once French, town of Pondicherry, home of Sri Aurobindo.
And the nearby Eco-Village conceptualized by The MotherAuroville.

Meditating inside the Matra Mandir is to access pure energy.

It is a yearning that draws one to Tiruvannamalai, the pure joy of visiting the home of Ramana Maharishi
and the mountainhe loved so much as the home of Lord Shiva: Arunachala!

We visit the sacred town of Chidambaram, where the Shiva Temple is dedicated to his Yogic form as Nataraja, the Cosmic Dancer.

Completing our yogic journey of the south, we fly north to Varanasi, perhaps the oldest living city in the world!
While immersing in the sacredness of the Ganges, visiting its ancient Temples and walking its ancient streets, we study Tantra with scholars and listen in the old gharanas to the music of one of its 15th generation classical musician families.

Finally, a small group of us will venture on to Rishikesh to visit the Ganges in another of its most sacred homes, Rishikesh:

Where ancient rishis lived once and a bridge now takes us across a river Lord Rama crossed by boat back somewhere in the mists of time

HOWEVER, 2012 begins in January with another Sacred Art of Eating workshop, this one in Malibu as it traverses its way across the culinary landscape of Southern California: perhaps it is time for you to immerse in its aromas, tastes and visual pleasures?
January 29: 1-7 PM at a Private home in Malibu: Space is limited to 12. Please contact Lynn Dolin at lynndolin@aol.com to sign up.

BACK in Greece after the India Retreat, we invite our international friends to join us for a Teacher Training Immersion in Ayurveda for Yogins: March 1-4:
Ayurveda for Yoga Teachers, Level 1: The Path of Healing & Realization
