Monsoon Meditation

… Dates to be scheduled…

 

 Monsoon Meditation is an intensive weekend retreat program designed to cultivate stillness through a series of guided meditations, yoga, sustained silence and immersion into nature.

Monsoon is a particularly powerful time for cleansing, inner healing and transformation. The arrival of the rains and the seasons shifting represents a natural motion of change. It signifies the end of the old and a beginning of the new. This can be a sacred time to acknowledge the process of transformation, the cycle of life and to gratefully accept change, surrender and allow it to unfold its magic and mystery within you and your own life.

Holistic yoga Retreat in the jungle

The Art of Healing

…2019/2020 Season Dates to be scheduled…

Spread across 6 days and 12 acres of sub-tropical forest the ‘Art of Healing’ is a uniquely nourishing and fully immersive program that endeavors to enable and support the individual to embark on a journey of self discovery and to develop conscious awareness through the means of yoga, meditation and prolonged silent stillness. This unique and comprehensive program is divided into two optional and individual elements that complement one another to form one holistic and all encompassing retreat package designed to penetrate and heal from deep within uncovering pure self-knowledge and revealing your true radiant being.

There are no distracting agendas, religions, ashrams or gurus at the centre and our methods are straight and simple, to integrate and heal both body and being, unearth the stillness within and to offer a new life purpose that will be the catalyst for an unending process of transformation. These effective and enduring practices can be integrated into your everyday living long after you have left the centre.

 

Part 1: Holistic Yogic Living 

The first 3 day element is designed to gain understanding and knowledge by experiencing the true all encompassing meaning and purpose of yoga through an authentic teaching which is much more than just about the physical aspect. Discover the teachings of the history and philosophy, the core foundations of the asana’s and the fundamentals of living a holistic yogic lifestyle that are still relevant today. As well as practicing right meditation techniques to cultivate stillness, reconnect to the sensation and life within the body itself. Learn to develop body consciousness and an effective and enduring personal self practice to continue long after the retreat has ended.

Part 2: Sweet Silent Stillness

The second part of the program is designed to put into practice the new skills and knowledge acquired from the first 3 days by delving deeper into the new found stillness within. We provide a separate silent relaxation space and offer a simple yet challenging program that combines sustained silence and a total digital and mental detox to go beyond meditation and begin to dissolve your attachments to the world around you.

Living in silence allows for a heightened sense of intimacy with the beauty of life all around us. Our senses become more acute and our perceptions within and without can appear to us with greater clarity. We gradually conserve and become more in tune with the subtle life energy within and a new awareness begins to unfold our thoughts and feelings normally drowned out by daily living. This is a powerful process that has the ability to penetrate deep within uncovering pure self-knowledge and revealing your true radiant being.

Limited places apply and spaces will be filled on a first come, first serve basis so please contact us via Email or Phone/WhatsApp or Facebook Message to book your place.

Silent Stillness Meditation Retreat in the jungle

Jungle Silent Stillness Retreats

..2019/2020 Season Dates to be Scheduled..

‘The Art of Being’

Connect to the Stillness of Nature
Meditation & Silence

Khaama Kethna ecological village and retreat centre invites you to participate in a 3 day ‘Silent Stillness Retreat’ in our tranquil slice of jungle wilderness. Immerse yourself into deep silent stillness and withdraw into the solitude and serenity of nature to reconnect to your true being within. No religions, ashrams or gurus and no distractions, just simple silence surrounded by the native flora and fauna of the South Goan Jungle.

Spread across 3 days and 12 acres of sub tropical forest, sleep in one of our traditionally hand crafted tree houses or cabanas and live in harmony with nature. We offer a gentle yet challenging program that combines sustained silence, a total digital detox, a clean healthy plant based diet and uniquely supportive yoga and guided meditation classes to completely cleanse and re-centre you from within.

Go beyond meditation, discover your inner stillness and begin to dissolve your attachments to the world around you.

WHY A ‘JUNGLE SILENT RETREAT’?
At Khaama Kethna, the art of being is consciously cultivated through simple but powerful and practical methods. One such method is by providing a sanctuary that encourages withdrawal into the solitude and serenity of nature from this modern, hectic world. Living as one with nature enables people to reconnect to their true being in their own way and own time.
In ordinary daily living, the mind is kept active through continuous stimulation from the outside world, this internal activity often builds up forming an inner restlessness and an insatiable need for entertainment through experience. Constant bombardment of the senses coupled with the complex interplay of emotions and attitudes involved in most social interactions tend to keep the fire of the mind burning, leaving you feeling anxious, discontent and fragmented. By removing distractions such as electronics, internet, music and books that activate the mind and disconnecting from the ceaseless chatter of social media, mobile phones and social interactions, we begin to free ourselves from the mental momentum and restlessness continually perpetuated by unnecessary screens and convenient conversations.
Living in silence allows for a heightened sense of intimacy with the beauty of life all around us. Our senses become more acute and our perceptions within and without can appear to us with greater clarity. We gradually become more in tune with the subtle life force within and a new awareness begins to unfold our thoughts and feelings normally drowned out by daily living. This is a powerful process that has the ability to penetrate deep within uncovering pure self-knowledge and revealing your true radiant being.
There are no distracting agendas, religions, ashrams or gurus placed upon you here and all views, traditions and spiritual paths are respected. Our methods are straight and simple, to support relaxation, stillness and transformation. The effective and enduring practices learned with us can be integrated into your everyday life long after you have left our retreat centre.

WHAT TO EXPECT ….
Upon arrival in the afternoon of the first day, once check in is complete we will have a full induction with a complete program including meal times and class/activity timetable. All of the rules and do’s and dont’s will be outlined and explained as well as a detailed map of the site and areas specially designated for the silent retreat. We ask that all guests please arrive before induction begins as silence will commence after the induction is finished.

Silence does not mean no sound: Just the idea of silence can appear intimidating to some who are more familiar with a more active and enjoyable social life. However here in the jungle, silent most definitely doesn’t mean no sound. The constant hum and ever expanding chorus of the wildlife all around becomes a soothing and comforting tune. An even more terrifying prospect to some is the total disconnection from the digital world but once again you may be surprised to find that the nature all around puts on a far more inspiring and entertaining show.

A detailed schedule will be given upon arrival and fully explained during your induction to silent living.

At our onsite Naturopathy Centre we provide a range of holistic wellbeing & wellness treatments and Ayurvedic massage. Treatments can be arranged for you throughout the retreat and can be pre booked during the induction.

Limited places apply and spaces will be filled on a first come, first serve basis so please contact us via Email or Phone/WhatsApp or Facebook Message to book your place.
