Harnessing the Power of Word

A Weekend Retreat, The Abbey, Sutton Courtenay, Oxfordshire
16th-18th February 2018


In the practice of Kundalini Yoga, speech is sometimes represented as a goddess who is known as Shakti or the Devi of Speech. The Devi of Speech has the power to bring understanding & insights. She is the bridge that connects us to what is happening within & what is manifesting outwardly.” Swami Sivananda Radha

This retreat weekend offers an opportunity to explore the concept of speech or word in Kundalini Yoga and beyond: how we can harness the power of word & sound through mantra, chant, journalling, the vibration of name, and sacred sound as Divine Word. Explore rich, ancient practices that deliver potency for change, deep comfort & profound peace. 

What can I expect?

  • Friday night is a gathering, welcoming & intention-setting session where we gather the group through mantra meditation
  • Saturday offers morning yoga & meditation, 2 core teaching sessions (why we use mantra/ how we use mantra/ working with yogic journalling) & an evening gathering
  • Sunday offers morning yoga & meditation, a teaching session on the tradition & use of ‘spiritual names’ & a deeply healing closing ritual
  • Take-home practices to explore & deepen your relationship to Self

Note: Sessions are based on Kundalini Yoga as taught by Yogi Bhajan but draw in from broader yogic teachings & energy medicine practices

Our setting for the weekend will be the restful, historic & atmospheric Abbey at Sutton Courtenay; the peaceful home of a small live-in community. Come explore, hang out, eat good food, walk in the grounds, rest & play! The weekend is your time to be nurtured in gentle community, share collective wisdom & dip in & out of the profound practices on offer.

Investment: £295 per person

The investment includes:

  • Single room accomodation in single/ twin rooms

I have attended Holly’s classes, workshops, gong baths and retreats with a passion!  I will be eternally grateful to her for “being the lighthouse”, the illuminated one, who has guided me to the amazing path of Kundalini Yoga.  She is an incredible being; she is knowledgeable, genuine, truthful, sincere, kind and blessed.  Her knowledge of “all things yoga” is so vast, and she has so much information to pass on during classes that I often take a notepad and pen!  Thank you Holly.
