The Forest Sage India Retreat 2016!

The Forest Sage India Retreat 2016!
Oct 14-26.
The practice of the yoga sutra
 

I have, for long, contemplated teaching the yoga sutra’s of Bhagvan Patanjali. Never being ready. Once I visited Jim’s Jungle Retreat I knew this is where I wanted to do it. It was in the forests that they were first heard.
We will practice and meditate on select sutra’s by bringing in an Ayurvedic perspective. So we understand their secrets for extraordinary healing potential.
We will take safaris to visit the animals, birds, forest & jungle, perhaps the local village and the little sleepy town: by jeep, by foot and if you like, by elephant.
In Rishikesh (home of the Ganges and the Seven Sages) we will do evening prayers on the river, perhaps shoot some rapids on her feisty water, visit a very special Shiva Temple, delve a little more into Ayurveda, visit the evening bazaar and umm, the Beatles Ashram.
