For 2020 we are so excited to be joining forces with the amazing Krishna Village in Eungella, northern New South Wales.
We will be taking you a level deeper with the added bonus of daily Yoga and meditations along with three organic meals a day.
The krishna Farm has been producing organic veggies since the 1980s and is well established to grow a variety of high-quality produce, free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. They grow as much of our own food as they can and otherwise buy locally wherever possible.
On our retreat we have three delicious vegetarian meals every day at the temple kitchen, with food served at the prasadam hall at the top of the hill on weekends.
Additionally, the village kitchen prepares a bountiful vegan lunch on all days except Saturday, when the volunteers take their day of rest, focusing on produce from the organic gardens and catering to gluten-free diets. This lunch is served in the village dining area.
All Krishna Village food whether served at the village or the temple, is prasadam – sacred food prepared in a consciousness of loving service.
Like in other cultures, they “offer our” food before we eat to say Grace and thank the Divine for the sun, the rain, and all the visible and invisible blessings necessary to co-create a delicious meal. Feel free to sing along with us, or just listen and enjoy… Lomi Lomi Massage training
Lomi Lomi is an Ancient Hawaiian Art of Massage that has been practiced over hundreds of years by master practitioners (kahuna) and elders (Kupuna). These Hawaiians were bearers of the light of knowledge that surrounded this spiritual work, and they passed down the sacred gift from generation to generation. Lomi Lomi awakens a very deep level of spirit, which penetrates an ancient realm of wisdom and inspires healing from a core level.
Lomi Lomi is a flowing dance like movement where we create a space for our clients to experience their healing. To totally understand Lomi Lomi, it’s good to understand the meaning of ‘Huna’. Huna means everything seeks harmony and everything seeks love. Perhaps this can best be understood by one of the alternate names for Lomi Lomi – the “Loving Hands” massage. Lomi Lomi works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body and enabling the recipient to relax, give in and simply be.
Lomi Lomi is like no other massage you have experienced with its long flowing moves, just like the rolling ocean waves. It takes you on a journey, discovering how to link the mind, body and soul in a deeply connecting way.
