About The Event
'Yatra' is the Sanskrit word for pilgrimage.
A yatra is a pilgrimage which offers an opportunity to explore dharma teachings and pathways to awakening whilst hiking through wild and pristine landscapes of our stunning natural world.
On a yatra we cultivate supportive conditions to investigate our relationship to self, others and our environment in order to deepen our sense of interconnection. The program will provide a flexible combination of silent periods for yoga, meditation, and reflective walking (wandering), as well as time for facilitated exercises, workshops, group circles, and artistic expression. The variety of practices will draw from deep ecology, traditional dharma teachings, nature wisdom, science, eco-psychology and tribal traditions.
This second yatra in New Zealand will follow the wandering trails of the renowned Abel Tasman National Park, situated in the northwest of the South Island.
Accommodation will mostly be in our personal tents. An accompanying cook will take care of our meals which will all be vegetarian. A support vehicle will transport participant camping gear from site to site. The Yatra will require active support from the participants with kitchen duties, fire, water, equipment and setting up/packing down the camps.
Facilitators: Inna Alex & Ronny Hickel from Yatra Australia
