3 day retreat 

 with Ellen Emmet & Ganga Ma

Drawn by our deepest longing, we gather in the invisible shrine.

At the door we leave our beliefs and our ideas. 

We enter barefoot. We are open.

We are together in openness.


This retreat will be a co-creation with my inspiring friend on the path Ellen Emmet. We will be using gentle yoga asana, free movement, breath meditation and chanting as instruments in our exploration

Ellen offers meetings and retreats in The Awakening Body, sharing a direct exploration of reality sourced in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism and self-inquiry as transmitted through Francis Lucille and his lineage. In addition, she has a private practice as a Psychotherapist, and facilitator of Authentic Movement. Her background of Dance-Movement Therapy and Transpersonal Psychology is shaped by the non-dual understanding. Ellen has a very natural, soft and humble way of sharing her work and it is a great joy giving shape to this retreat together with herFor more information about Ellens work click here


During this three-day retreat, we will welcome our direct experience and let it reveal its palpable reality of unconditional love.

Within it the layers of suffering that seem to keep us separate from the totality naturally surface.

Our particular focus is our body, allowing it to be our mirror and our pathway, our prayer, and our cry and ultimately the shining expression of our shared essence and unique individual shape. Together, we will listen to its tactile, emotional, and energetic language and allow it to simply unfold and blossom in its natural original intelligence. Along the way, held traumas find open pathways, tensions touch the possibility of relaxation, stories find fresh formulations, expression is liberated, and we may discover the effortless movement of healing.

I will weave chanting into our tactile and movement inquiry and lead mantra chanting and kirtan.

There will be time for questions and conversation, nourishing vegetarian meals and time to rest and walk in nature.
