‘During my first retreat in Sri Lanka Maren introduced me to the life transforming discipline of Kundalini yoga and enchanting powers of Cacao. She is an incredible human being with all of the knowledge and compassion to help you on your journey’ - Paul

......the best way to re-connect with who YOU truly are

 

In times of unrest on Earth we can often feel overwhelmed and powerless. We want to see change, but find it difficult to imagine how we can make a difference.

Instead we close down and distract ourselves with work, substances, food, entertainment etc. and pretend that everything is fine. This reaction will ultimately leave us feeling detached and unfulfilled.

For all of us it is time for an awakening into a joyful and more enlightened way of living.

During a retreat we come together in beautiful natural surroundings with like minded people to share our wisdom, creativity and loving support for each other.

It is a wonderful way to help us reconnect with those virtues that will save us: Love, Compassion, Service and Gratitude.

By increasing our light we will help those in need, raise awareness for what is out of balance and the importance of honouring and giving thanks to Mother Earth.

Enlightened Living Urban Retreat in North London

in partnership with Katharine Walsh, 08.06. and/or 09.06 

Have you always wanted to go on a retreat but been slightly nervous about going too far away from home? Or love retreats but don’t currently have the time for 3 or 4 days out? If so, this retreat, set in the heart of one of London’s most magical conservation areas, just 10 minutes from Totteridge northern line or Mill Hill mainline station, could be exactly what you are looking for.

Focusing on reconnecting with nature, reconnecting with yourself and finding a stillness and calm, inside and out, that so many of us desperately need right now, we invite you to join us for one or two days in a stunning private house, set in 3 acres of enchanting gardens. 

Take some time for yourself: Walk bare foot in the grass; sit under a canopy of majestic 200 year old trees; immerse yourself in a sound healing gong session; curl up with a book in a quiet corner; experience the enlightenment that can come from a cacao ceremony; learn and practice ancient meditation techniques; and take part in Kundalini yoga sessions, eat delicious sugar free vegetarian food and for some extra pampering opt to enjoy a spiritual, healing massage.

In an age dominated by the pressures of social media, the deluge of negative news stories, and the expectations and demands of others and those we place on ourselves, it is no surprise that life - especially in big cities - can sometimes feel overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be like this. There is so much magic to be found in this life and it often only takes a little bit of guidance, some time out of our normal environment in nature, with no talk of jobs or relationships, and with meaningful connections and tools, to feel like a new empowered, happier and lighter version of ourselves.

So why not come and join us, the butterflies and the birds, to give your mind, body and soul the time out that it deserves.

What to expect: Kundalini Yoga, Meditation, Pranayama breath work, Sound Healing, Cacao Ceremony, Shamanic Journeying, Mindful Eating & Yogic Life Style tips, Sugar free vegetarian and vegan food, Time and space to breathe and think, Healing Massage available on request.

Cost: £150 pp for one day, £250 pp for two days. Please email hello@marenlander.com to book your place.
