Know you’re free and live in happiness, strength and peace. Experience four glorious days of retreat at this paradise on Earth, with gourmet, organic cuisine, rest and natural beauty, plus an inspiring series of original workshops with Padma!

Next September, Padma will present her ‘FREEDOM & JOY!’ retreat, a unique combination of several of her signature workshops including ‘Living Wisdom’ and ‘Relax and Renew.’ Even if you have previously taken either of these original workshops with Padma you will be inspired and deeply touched to immerse yourself in Padma’s newest learning program.

Padma will have just returned to Canada from another year in meditation retreat and study in the Himalayas of India with her guru, and will share with you all her most recent teachings and revelations.

Padma will share wisdom, laughter and inquiry from three decades of direct study with a Himalayan meditation master, and will guide you to find your own lasting joy.

This is a blissful immersion in pure meditation, insightful discussion, eastern philosophy and psychology along with Padma’s unique style of powerful yet gentle yoga. Enjoy this rare chance to learn timeless knowledge directly transmitted to Padma from her guru in India.

Become a master of your mind rather than being overwhelmed by it. Be free from habitual negative thinking patterns and expand life’s joy. Explore how this powerful information is fully applicable in your daily life.
