Nurturing Light ~ An Autumn Yoga & Meditation Weekend with Deepa & Rashmi October 5-7 2018, Canterbury, Kent, UK
to Oct 7

Nurturing Light ~ An Autumn Yoga & Meditation Weekend with Deepa & Rashmi October 5-7 2018, Canterbury, Kent, UK

Nurturing Light ~ An Autumn Yoga & Meditation Weekend with Deepa & Rashmi

October 5-7 2018, Canterbury, Kent, UK


Nurturing Light ~ Sat-cit-ananda

As nights get longer heading into the darkness of winter, this retreat will focus on recognizing the inner light of individual presence (sat-truth), reconnecting to the shared human capacity for awareness (cit-consciousness), and resting within the full potential (ananda-bliss) of illuminated aware presence.

Inspired by the season's Hindu celebrations of Diwali (Festival of Light) and Navaratri (Nine Nights of the Goddess), this retreat welcomes women of diverse backgrounds and all ranges of yoga experience. We honour and welcome your wisdom, love, and courage. 




Daily morning and evening practices. There will be a more dynamic practice in the morning and a slow, restorative practice in the evening.

Guided Meditation

Daily morning and evening meditation, incorporating mindfulness and mantra-based practices.

Mindful Walking

Weather permitting, exploring nature through meditative movement.

Womens’ Circle

Embracing age-old wisdom traditions that allow for women to gather, connect, and learn from one another, there will be formal and informal opportunities for women to share and inspire each other. Through deep listening and dialogue, we will spend the weekend exploring ways to keep nurturing light at home and in our communities.


There will be plenty of time to rest, read, wander or meditate in the gardens, nap, have a massage, connect with others and reconnect with self.

The Wild Body with Natalie Joel-Smith
to Aug 12

The Wild Body with Natalie Joel-Smith

Join Natalie for a weekend of re-wilding. This is a chance to slow down, listen inwardly and move attentively, to cultivate space and power from within. The excessive stimuli of daily life can take its toll, leaving us foggy, tired or hyper-aroused. This retreat is a chance to unplug from stress and strain, and plug into your Self, where lost connections are reignited and your essence is recharged. 

Through Yoga, meditation, sound, movement, nature and ritual, we’ll go on an adventure into the core of our being; the most open, expansive, precious and loving space from which to live our lives. 

We are all wild creatures full of wildly abundant possibility. We have a place in nature and are a part of the great mystery of the Universe. When we arrive at home in our bodies we can experience this viscerally and become more attuned to our aliveness, holding the entirety of our human experience compassionately in our arms.

Prices range from £270 - £380 in shared accommodation.
