Planetary Alignment + Yantra Painting India Retreat 2020
With Brooke Sullivan and Seema Agarwal
February 21 - March 5, 2020
At the heart of Tantric teachings is the understanding that the power inherent in the Cosmos is also within the body of the Individual. Our minds, conditioning & circumstances often prevent us from accessing this power, and so as a result we feel disconnected, distracted and disempowered. Practitioners of yoga & meditation with a good foundation of study and practice begin to realize the compendium of information available in the vast field of “yoga” – how to direct life purpose and understand energy, the human body, and our connection to the cosmos. Yantra, Mantra and Tantra are key tools (as well as vast sciences) for this deeper level of study as well as wonderful gateways for seekers at any level of practice.
In February/March 2020, The Wild Temple will pilgrimage to the temple matrix of Tamil Nadu in South India to be led in a planetary alignment and activation immersion by Seema Agarwal, artist and daughter of famous Tantric Yantra Painter Harish Johari, and Brooke, director of the Wild Temple & practitioner of the Himalayan Sage tradition. We will study the 9 planets and their effects on the body and the mind through Yantra, Mantra, Tantric Hatha Yoga, Meditation and daily pilgrimages to the Planetary Temples of Tamil Nadu’s, Kumbakonum.
Each day, aligning to the astrological influences, we aim to activate our Individual consciousness to Universal consciousness. This activation brings an awareness and embodiment of ancient, universal sacred geometry back to the shrine of the individual – bringing with it more clarity of mind, peace of heart and self directed purpose to life. We encourage dedicated practitioners as well as those new to the practices of yoga (in other words All Levels are welcome.)
