The healing power of pranic vibration – Kundalini yoga retreat in Nepal
Gong baths, mindful movement, silent meditation, chanting, nourishing organic food, and an extraordinary location.
Taught by: Tonie Nooyens
Location: Namo Buddha Resort, Nepal
Cost: 19,500 rupees (all-inclusive from when we meet together in Kathmandu until we bring you back)
Treat yourself to a weekend to remember and help to dissolve the stresses you’d like to forget. Join Tonie Nooyens at the beautiful Namo Buddha Resort for a weekend of:
- gong baths (immersing in sound vibration)
- mindful movement in the Kundalini Yoga tradition
- silent meditation, chanting
- nourishing organic food
- deep restful sleeps in the resort’s Newari cottages
Tonie Nooyens is in Nepal for a short time to teach his Mind & Meditation Kundalini yoga teacher training module. However, to give more people a chance to practice with this extraordinary teacher, we offer this special retreat, open to all.
We will experience how Pranic energy flows through our energy channels: the “Nadis”. Using breath, sound, movement and meditation, the weekend will help to purify and invigorate your energy and to remove blockages that prevent it from flowing freely and unobstructed.
Bathing in the vibration of the gong is a powerful tool to transform disturbing thought patterns. Through this, we can let go of upsetting emotions, and achieve deep healing and stillness within ourselves. Immersing in the sound creates deep relaxation, releasing us from the torrent of our thoughts. It releases blocks, reduces tension, and re-arranges our emotional energy and feelings.
By practicing guided silent and mantra meditations we will work towards a state of physical and mental balance. Silent meditation is effective to get to know yourself, while mantra meditation can break through deep rooted thought patterns.
The retreat welcomes anyone looking to learn about meditation and to find some space in their daily lives by developing a practice. The weekend gives us a chance to learn the tools of meditation and practice them under Tonie’s gentle and experienced guidance.
Your home for the meditation retreat: Namo Buddha Resort
We will meet centrally in Kathmandu, and travel together on our comfortable private bus for two hours east, to the forested hillside of Namo Buddha.
High in the foothills of the Himalayas near Dhulikhel, join an intimate group of like-minded people and find the space to see the You within you. Switch off from the demands of life back home, surround yourself with nature and calm, and heal yourself with delicious nourishing food and with the energy of one of the most sacred sites in Buddhism.
Accommodation is in the beautiful little stone-and-wood Newari cottages nestled into the hillside and surrounded by the lovingly-tended organic farm and garden. With cooling breezes of pure mountain air, panoramic views of the Himalayas, golden sunrises, gentle mists guiding you inwards, groves of fruit trees attracting colourful birds, and a sense of isolation among the quiet local villages, the harmonious conditions will help you to find peace and stillness for a weekend that will feel so much more.
The resort grows as much of its own food (vegetables, grains, fruits and edible flowers) as possible, to prepare fresh, creative and nourishing vegetarian dishes. They collect milk from their own cows and honey from their bees, and make their own jams, sour dough breads, pizza, and other baked treats.
The resort has a sauna, as well as a flotation tank or “Samadhi tank“: one of the few publicly accessible flotation tanks in Asia, and believed to facilitate a deep meditation.
