Meditation Retreat

Transcending the 3 Gunas

The nature of this retreat will be a deeper study of the gunas or ‘strands of cord’ which tie us into Prakriti (Physical Nature) through attachment to desires and to the results of our actions.

Sattvic : Benevolent actions

Rajistic: Activity that is selfishly led

Tamasic: Inaction, laziness and ignorance

The three gunas are intertwined strands of binding cords to the cycle of birth and rebirth until we can learn to transcend these states of being.

Over the weekend, we will explore these in depth and learnbreath techniques and meditations to focus on sattvic practice. We will also learn how to put this benevolent practice to practical application in activity.


’It is said that the fruit of sattvic action is harmony and purity. The fruit of rajisticaction is pain. The fruit of tamasic action is ignorance.’

Bhagavad Gita14:16
