• Body Mind Soul

    Revive and rejunevate


We have called this the Body Mind Soul retreat. And we hope to scratch the surface of answering the question, who am I? We hope to do this in a light-hearted manner that revives and refreshes you, with workshops that address the Body, the Mind, the Soul and something beyond. The Retreat will make you do things you have not done before, help you see a different side of yourself, and may lead you to ask yourself, is this really me?

Slide 1

You will connect with your body through a deeper awareness, heal yourself through Sound, express your artistic side, journey within yourself and learn to “let it go”, and experience the soothing effects of an oriental Tea Ceremony. A detailed day by day schedule is given below. 

Slide 1

The Retreat will be facilitated by Auroville experts, including Aurelio, Birgitta and Amir to name a few. Our facilitators have lived in Auroville for many years and are actively engaged in the development of the township. Most of the Retreat's activities have evolved in Auroville, giving our workshops a very distinct feel of this international community.

This Retreat will be held in Auroville, an international community with over 2000 people from around 40 different countries. Founded in 1968, Auroville is based on the vision of The Mother and is endorsed by UNESCO and the Government of India as an ongoing experiment in human unity. Over the years, Auroville has won international acclaim for its efforts in social and environmental sustainability.

Auroville is located 8km from Pondicherry, 3 hours drive from Chennai city/airport (150km) along the scenic East Coast Road (ECR) and 8 hours by an AC sleeper bus from Bangalore (350km).

Slide 1

Set in a green-forested area close to the sea, Auroville provides a perfect ambience with its rustic setting, and a creative and vibrant community. Participants will stay within Auroville and travel to different locations throughout their stay, accompanied by our program coordinators. We will assist you with accomodation, food, transport, hostess for children and other logistics as needed.

   Often I have the sense in the retreats that they are for the participants not so much about stepping out, drawing back or just relaxing, but opening into a new adventure, diving deeper or reaching up, getting in touch with ones inherent creative potential and listening to owns dreams, seeing the possibility of visions manifest. As a facilitator it is a delight to be able to not only observe, but share and be part of these enriching processes.
