Bhutan Retreat 2023

2023 Dates: Thursday 12 January – Sunday 22 January 2023
With Sal Flynn, Retreat Leader and Group Facilitator

Bhutan is tucked amongst the foothills of the Himalaya. Be inspired by this nation which created the Gross National Happiness measurement and is committed to the preservation of culture, ethical governance, economic responsibility and environmental care.

The elements of earth and space are keenly felt in Bhutan. They lie within all of us, ready to be awakened in our modern-life awareness.

Sal Flynn will lead mindful Yoga and meditation practices to develop stability and strength to support you through the ups and downs of day to day life. From this foundation, you will discover an inner spaciousness and freedom that restores your energies, reveals new clarity, and invites you to experience more lightness and inspiration.

Pancha Maya and the Dance of the Elements

The natural elements broadly apply to our experience within the Pancha Maya construct and act as metaphors. As a mix, we are each a dance of earth, water, fire, air and space.
