Immersion style learning encourages us to set aside our daily distractions and dive into the experience of exploring mental and emotional patterns, embracing the joy and delight of the experience of life, love and community, moving towards greater perception and elevated consciousness.
Each day offers fresh wholesome meals mixed with a balance of module offerings, dialogue, nidra experiences, optional self-guided yoga practices and self reflection. We encourage time for self exploration, reflection and journaling whether it be in nature right on the retreat centre or indoors in the many common areas and private spaces. Evening satsang offer a time to gather to share and reflect our truths, and celebrate our time together.
MODULES 1,2&3 ALL OFFERED IN THIS WEEK!
Humanities quest for the true self is the foundation of all wisdom teachings. Yet often, the path towards self-realization is a steady uncovering and deep study of who we are not. Only then, when we illuminate all the personal content of our consciousness and shift our awareness to the impersonal stream of pure consciousness itself, will we be liberated into our own freedom. In these 3 modules, we will explore the ancient practice of yoga nidra, both as a practice and as a state of consciousness. We will also experience somatic prepatory movement techniques for full embodiment, and meditation for connection to soul. This course is for yoga teachers who are interested in offering Yoga Nidra, as well as for practitioners who want to deepen their understanding of the practice, and skillfully interact with the intelligent life force.
Yoga Nidra is a systematic relaxation practice that guides practitioners to an expanded state of awareness beyond the 5 senses. This wisdom teaching is a portal into one's authentic nature, where the timeless self resides.

Bliss Haven Retreat CENTRE
Since its inception, Bliss Haven Retreat has been a nurturing haven of laughter, peace and positivity to myriads of groups and individuals. The very love, care, nurture, freedom, and a feeling of home away from home for recharging/healing that we dreamed of for ourselves is what led owner Dolly to this property. “The minute we laid eyes on the property which is today called Bliss Haven Retreat, it took our breath away, we knew that many could come and benefit from the serenity and grandeur offered by nature both within and without.” One can wander through mature trees and open meadows or walk to Lake Erie and the Grand River and experience the feeling of relaxation and oneness with nature. Located a mere 40 minutes from Niagara Falls and 90 minutes from Toronto, this retreat centre is aimed to satiate ease of travel, tourist destinations, and the quality of space and energy required when immersing in our nidra training.
Bliss Haven Retreat is the perfect place to relax or be active.
It is in the town of Dunnville which is at the delta where the Grand River flows into Lake Erie. The captivating charm of the flora and fauna owes its uniqueness to it being the only pocket of the Carolinian forest left in Canada. The Grand’s varied resources, its historic and cultural value as a river system are recognized nationally and internationally with its designation as a Canadian Heritage River. Enjoy captivating views while Kayaking /Canoeing in it. Visitors would enjoy the picturesque scenic beauty of both the river and the lake which are blocks away from the property and are a favorite of golfers, hikers, cyclists, campers, bird watchers, boaters, photographers, artists and sightseers. Lake Erie’s beautiful shoreline offers countless opportunities such as boating, windsurfing, water skiing, scuba diving, swimming - or just relaxing and soaking up the sun on the beach. The Rock Point Provincial Park is also a few blocks away and is visited each September by throngs of monarch butterflies on their migratory path to Mexico. Migrating birds (up to 260 species) travel through the park throughout.
***We have reserved the option for guests to arrive 2 days prior and stay 2 days later if they should choose to soak up the amazing national parks, beaches and natural landscapes in the area. Highly recommended!***
