GBKYF SUMMER RETREAT 2017
Wed, May 31, 2017, 4:00 PM – Sun, Jun 4, 2017, 4:00 PM BST
The festival returns this year with a 4 day retreat at our new venue the Academy in Buckinghamshire.
The teachings of Yogi Bhajan are imprinted in our hearts, he wished for us to be free and he taught us methods to liberate our hearts so that we could live from our souls and have a positive effect on the beings that come behind us. Our festival this year will be themed to honour his wishes while connecting us to the elemental forces that make it possible for humankind to exist.
Our yogic roots reach out for each other and we find many connections between yoga and the sacred practices of indigenous tribes and spiritual practices around the world. Through our roots we are all connected.
Thus, our overarching theme is to ‘Remember the Seven Generations’ the seventh generational principle considers that every decision, word or action that we commit to has some form of impact upon the earth for up to 175 years- that is 25 years per generation. Native American tribes have long upheld this premise as the foundation of peace treaties between tribes. Yogi Bhajan asked us to be a positive force in the universe and so we will sublimely thread our theme through this time together so that we can send our positive intention to the younger generations and those that have yet to come.
