All participants of the Yogini Summer Ashram in Corfu must have a background in spiritual practice and must have at least taken one online sadhana with Awakening Women (here you can find our online self-study sadhanas).
In order to benefit from these retreats, you need to come prepared to dive fully into the practices, and therefore it is best to have a basic understanding of feminine/embodied spiritual practice. You need to have done a program with AWI before, practiced in a Temple group, or at the least, taken an online sadhana.
Come willing to explore a new way of being with other women beyond our collective tendencies of competition and gossiping. The practices we explore together may evoke strong feelings in you, both of pleasure and of discomfort, and our staff and the entire circle is there to hold you in the most healing and safe space.
Our practices can sometimes be physically vigorous, so be prepared to move your body!
Week 1 is for all women. Newcomers to Awakening Women retreats are welcome, although you must be familiar with our approach and must have completed at least an online sadhana.
Week 2 In order to join the second week, you will have to have participated in our Summer Ashram in Corfu before. It is extra challenging to join a retreat in the middle, so we recommend all women to join the first week if you only can come for one week.
Week 3 is for all women. Newcomers to Awakening Women retreats are welcome, although you must be familiar with our approach and must have completed at least an online sadhana.
Week 4 is for women who have already practiced in live retreats with AWI and want to deepen in their practice.
Be aware that although there are plenty of breaks to rest and integrate, there is an intensity to the embodiment practices that can be challenging if you are not used to it.
Our retreats are based on powerful shakti practices which can open strong currents of Kundalini in the body. These are not therapeutic programs. If you are in any way feeling unstable psychologically, are going through a severe crisis or have a history of mental illness, we ask you to not join these events.
