Below, Ena and Gammadian, both Being Energy® teachers from England, are sharing their experience of living and teaching a Being Energy retreat in India. Enjoy it! Aerin
“[The Rishikesh Recapitulation Retreat] is an intimate group and very powerful for everyone going through the process of recapitulation of our lives. This morning we welcomed the sun on the bank of the Ganga river practicing the movement sequences, Flow, calling inner silence and bathing in the river. The Indian people believe that when you immerse yourself in the water three times, the Ganga washes away all your sins. This intent is very supportive of what we intend for ourselves in this retreat.
Tomorrow we will be taking part in a local fire ceremony and Aarti (a song of gratitude to the Ganga) on the riverbank. Then we will visit some magic waterfalls in the mountains and a sacred cave of the Rishi Vaishist where we can practice inner silence.”
This retreat followed an annual Karma Ling celebration in India. Gammadian tells that at the core of the program was Being Energy with three teachers. They practiced the Sword Form and Rallying the Dreaming Attention, along with Glistening in Dreaming, and had around 35 people for most sessions.
As Ena and Gammadian and other BE teachers tell us, teaching Being Energy is richly rewarding. Ena says, “Throughout this year, I have been teaching Being Energy to many people in weekly classes, individual sessions and workshops and taking part in the BE Skilled classes has been a valuable tool for me to learn, practice and grow.”
Ena also shared about a series of Being Energy classes that she and Gammadian recently taught during a yoga festival in the English countryside, “A lot of people joined our classes and every day we had people coming to thank us for sharing this gift of spirit and giving us feedback of how they liked the movements, how they felt energized after the practice like they never felt energized after any other practice before. A few of them told us they may have found a practice they wanted to follow for life. It felt so rewarding to have this exchange and to feel a part of something bigger than us. We came back from this festival full of love, energy and new inspirations.”
