Mary-Louise Aitken collaborates with Andy Butterfield to bring you the retreat you have been waiting for!
Between 1 ~ 6 March, the perfect opportunity to restore energies before the resurgence of spring. The invitation is to rest & find nourishment for soul & body. Experience practices rooted in Devi/ Goddess/ Tantric Powers & Traditions.
We know that the narrative text, Devi Mahatmya, witnesses the debut of the Hindu Goddess & the capital ‘G’ points towards the original, supreme power of creation; the ultimate divinity, presented in ‘the feminine.’ Regardless of pronouns, Andy & Mary-Lou call you to explore the qualities congruent with shakti (śakti / goddess) power – traditions intrinsically linked with Tantra:
‘To live, to be present in the world as a Tāntrika, is to live in a universe pervaded by powers, by the power (śakti) of the deity — a universe experienced as a field of energy in which the body is immersed. The body is part of the universe, reflecting its structure. Supernatural forces and deities are present, animating the body and connecting it with the cosmos. A body whose structure and life are simultaneously human, cosmic, and divine is also a yogic body.’ [André Padoux, The Hindu Tantric World: An Overview]
The carefully structured programme will support building & revivifying energies needed for the upsurge of spring including Yin & Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Shiatsu Massage, Soulful Hatha-Flow & Meditation.
Mary-Lou & Andy would absolutely love you to be a part of this experience.
