In order to avoid health problems, we recommend eating a raw onion or its equivalent daily during the 30 days prior to leaving. Do not eat in India at any stand on the street. At the level of clothing, we recommend discretion, especially women (avoid jeans, miniskirts and tight pants, always have the shoulders and ankles covered in one way or another, although they can teach the navel … so are the differences of culture). Do not take a lot of clothes with you as you will have the opportunity to buy good and cheap clothes in India. The clothes used in India usually worns out very soon, because the country has a lot of pollution and one gets dirty very quickly.
REBIRTHING, LIBERATION, HEALING
as taught by Yogi Bhajan
at the Sattwa Retreat Center, near Rishikesh, India
«Rebirthing, Liberation, Healing» is a therapeutic workshop which is based on yoga and “meditation/medication” which will take us through our personal histories (ancestors, conception, pregnancy, childhood, teenage years) thanks to practising deep meditation, according to Yogi Bhajan’s teachings.\r\nThis therapeutic workshop contributes to the deep transformation of the Self, thanks to the internal work through the technology that Yogi Bhajan taught us, building a link at that very moment, with the heart and the internal self. And above all, this process will take us, at a subconscious level, to the mental, physical and spiritual space of “cleaning the house” from any sensation of pain, traumas, weakening of emotions which have not been adequately assimilated, frustrations, fear that dwells in us, anger that result from all these undigested feelings, depressions and “heart´s illnesses” which hinder literally the awareness of the present moment, because of the anxieties we experience all the time and separate us from the sensation of the divine presence of ourselves. We will explore together our liberation through a process of rebirthing and personal healing thanks to this ancient technology of healing our “Self”.
We invite you to share with us this process through deep meditations, so we may rebuild from bottom up our family relationships, so we become aware of painful memories from the childhood and release ourselves from unnecessary burdens of the past, so we heal what prevents us from moving forward and prosper in life… It’s time for us to be happy, to leave our fears, our traumas and our sensations of panic behind…
