Light of the Fearless

Bowen Island, Vancouver BC

MARCH 8 - 10: weekend yoga retreat for inner awakening

A weekend yoga retreat for inner awakening on Bowen Island, Vancouver, B.C.

Are we formless beings roaming aimlessly through life, or are there deeper meanings to our journey that are revealed to the enlightened ones?

The path of yoga is the path of inner knowing of your place in the Universe; this knowing allows you to move fearlessly through life by realizing your divine self.  

Join us for a weekend retreat at the Xenia Centre on the serene Bowen Island in beautiful British Columbia, Canada.

Pamper your spirit and intellect with Dharma Teachings and Universal Yoga classes offered by Raj Patra and take steps on your journey of moving closer to your own Inner Light.  

All-inclusive pricing includes farm-to-table meals that will raise your vibration, yoga classes and lectures from an Indian yoga teacher, Raj Patra, and 2-nights boarding in Xenia Creative Center that breathes in sunlight and forest breeze, from 11:00 AM on Friday, March 8, 2019, until 4:00 PM on Sunday, March 10, 2019.
