Jivamukti Yoga Spirit Wake-Up Retreat

Our Invitation to you

Join us for 6 days for a thriving week of practice and joyful wholesome activities, in a friendly community of like minded people, in the embrace of the sacred land of Mani.

On this retreat you will have a chance to deepen your practice in yoga and meditation. Furthermore, it will detox, relax and nourish you on the physical, mental and emotional level. Recharge your soul with the nourishing greek sun, fuel yourself with deliciously good vegetarian and vegan food, enjoy and experience the endless, wild beaches and the great nature of Mani peninsula. You will have the chance to take care of yourself and enjoy your life the fullest with Petros Haffenrichter and the Zen Rocks team.

Description of the retreat

This program includes daily practice of Jivamukti yoga for all levels, breathing practice, kirtan music, storytelling, community building and cooking classes.

When one actually feels oneself and the world, if somehow the ache of beauty, nature, harmonies of stars, time, space, and the dance of elements can somehow pierce through this numbed human condition - we can wake up. To the reality and beauty and integrity of life.

The path of the yogis has shown over millennia how we can be at ease with the pushes and pulls of currencies of values as they change according to the trends of ignorance of each epoch. To lessen the degree of separation between the one and the supposed "other." It's time to regain our freedom for intuitive union, Yoga.

Petros' words open the path:

I trust in the never sleeping voice of our intuition, which unmasks the bias of our consciousness through the depth of our feelings and carries the eternal wisdom of the connectedness of all life and wants to work there.

I trust in the music, prayer, rituals, and encounters that lead us to the real world of playful dance and song and which remains audible despite all the noise of a world that forgets its essence.

I trust in the experience of countless compassionate beings over millennia who instilled in us the traditions of integrity and purpose.

The path that we learn to walk through the practice itself is one of many ways to unfold this given light that we call life, and thus our destiny within it.

Open to all levels

Petros Haffenrichter

Growing up in different cultures I came to appreciate life as a union of polarities at a young age. Life is thrilling but demanding, beutiful but challenging, graceful but incomprehensible thourgh mere logic. Through yoga, arts,music and acts of compassion, it is possible to learn to accept all parts this play as equally significant and as opportunities for learning and insight.

The key for developing an open mind and a thoughtful openness toward life is to keep ones curiousity and focus alive. Through yoga we develop finer levels of awareness, eventually to find that we hold the key to joy in our very hands as we learn to distinguish between conditioned behavior and freedom. Ultimately but inevitably, we shift our perception of reality, opening a path to liberation.
