Embody Your Freedom
Ecstatic Summer Retreat with Simon Rowe

Embody your freedom in body, voice, and mind with Simon. Explore the liberating practices of movement meditation, free-form yoga, blissful kirtan, and vocal liberation. Simon offers this special summer retreat to share his love for the ecstatic path of Sahaja—‘the art of living spontaneously and being vibrantly alive.’ Enjoy dynamic embodied practices for cultivating freedom and intuitive creative flow.

This retreat includes a delicious shared lunch in the comfy huiskamer at the school.

Spanda - The Pulse of the Life Force
Simon will open the morning session with a sequence of dynamic breath-work to awaken the experience of Spanda, the universal pulse of energy. Ride the waves of Prana as you move with the energy of breath. Feel the pulse of the life force in every cell of your body!

Meditation in Movement
Explore your fluid nature, starting on the yoga mat with a movement-based Sahaja yoga sequence. Move with your breath as your body softens and opens, going beyond the yoga poses and into the space of freedom and ecstatic flow. Relax into guided conscious movement practices to release rigidity, soften, and surrender to the soothing rhythm of your own intuitive, creative flow.

Move off the mat into open space to extend your practice of movement meditation and embodied freedom. Experience the transformative effect of conscious movement as holistic medicine for body, mind, and soul! Open to the pleasure and wisdom of movement as your teacher as you move deeper into a state of conscious flow, a moving meditation.

Free Your Voice to Free Your Soul
Sounding and singing together is a wonderful way to connect, breathe together, and feel supported, held by the sound of the collective. Simon will guide the group through vocal warm-ups and liberating vocal practices to help release vocal stress and allow the music to flow through you.

Free the expression of your natural voice and get in touch with the wisdom of your body through embodied voice work. Together, we will create simple sounds that we layer into harmonious music and sonic landscapes. Simon guides the journey, weaving a tapestry of melodies and harmonies from the blend of voices, supported at times by percussion, harmonium and other sacred instruments. Experience mantra and kirtan in an ecstatic ‘Sahaja’ style as you free your voice to free your soul!

We will close the afternoon session with a sublime exploration of the inner dance inspired by the movement meditation of Kashmiri Tandava. Let yourself dissolve into your inner dance and then relax during the ocean of sound—a meditative sound and song bath, surrendering to the subtle currents of sound and allowing them to wash over you in waves of serenity and grace.

This retreat day includes a delicious shared lunch prepared for us in the comfy ‘huiskamer' at the school. We will enjoy a long 90-minute lunch break, giving time for a walk along the canals or relaxing time-out in the school’s lovely garden.

This retreat is open to all levels of practitioners.
