***Residential Ayurvedic Cookery Workshop - Deep Theory and Delicious Practicals*** NEW

Timings: Thursday, Friday & Saturday afternoons

A chance to learn a useful life skill that can help you to maintain you and your family's health - You are what you eat - literally! The food that we eat converts into our body tissues and affects the state of our mind, the quality of our meditations and the relationships we have. A healthy nutritious diet is essential to good health.

In this course you will learn the basic principles of Ayurveda and together with this theory there will be practical demonstrations and a chance for you to get hands on experience of cooking a wide range of vegetarian dishes (and best of all - get to eat this delicious food afterwards!)
The price includes all ingredients and recipes.

For more details please feel free to contact the very experienced instructor Katie Herrald: 07971 719 563 | katie@herrald.co.uk

Our toughest critics - the children themselves - give this programme rave reviews.

Art of Silence (Part 2) for Part 1/YES!+ graduates

The Art of Living Part II Course provides optimal conditions for going deep within, quieting our mental chatter and experiencing deep rest and inner peace. The practise of silence, of consciously withdrawing our energy and attention from outer distractions has been used in different traditions throughout time as a pathway to physical, mental and spiritual renewal.

The course features:  

  • Rejuvenating yoga
  • Two to three days of guided silence
  • Unique guided meditations designed by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
  • Advanced breathing techniques which can also be practised at home after the course
  • Advanced insight on the laws governing our mind and emotions

Sahaj Samadhi Meditation – for Part 2 graduates only

Timings: 6am-8.30am on Thu 15th, Fri 16th & Sat 17th August 2013

Everyone has experienced a meditative state in moments of deep joy, or when completely engrossed in an activity, when just for a moment the mind becomes so light and at ease. While we have such moments, we are unable to repeat them at will. The Sahaj Samadhi course teaches you how. Sahaj is a Sanskrit word that means natural or effortless. Samadhi is a deep, blissful, meditative state. Sahaj Samadhi meditation is a natural, effortless system of meditation. Regular practice of the technique can totally transform the quality of one's life, by culturing the system to maintain the peace, energy, and expanded awareness of meditation throughout the day.

The scheduling of this course allows it to be done in conjunction with a Part 2 course or alongside Sri Sri Yoga, in which case you need only pay the 'combo' course fee as your accommodation fee has already been included in the other course.

Eternity process by appointment, £75

The soul is eternal. Our existence is timeless. We have been here before in the past and will come in the future too. The different actions of the mind and body affects the present moment. Every thought we think is stored in the form of Samskara or impression in our mind. To help us overcome these impressions, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar has designed a course called ETERNITY PROCESS which enables one to overcome the negative elements and past impressions, learn to be in the present moment and celebrate life.

The eternity process is just like a guided meditation, a one to one session for about 2 to 3 hours. Prerequisite to have done the Art of Breathing course.

Vastu Shastra Workshop, Saturday 17th August 6.30-7.30pm, £25

What is Vastu?


Vastu Shastra is like yoga for your home, a holistic form of architecture and design and the source of the more commonly known Feng Shui. It is based on the ancient Indian science of construction and placement according to the five elements. The eternal principles of Vastu are equally as relevant and effective today as they were in ancient times, and when utilised properly, they promise to improve the quality of your living experience both at home and in working life.

If you would like to examine your living and/or working environments so they can better support your life, the starting place is a Vastu consultation. These can take many forms from an initial session lasting upto 1 hour which can be done during your stay at the Retreat, to a full home visit taking upto 3 hours that can be booked at your convenience.

Vastu Shastra Workshop is for those who are interested in learning the basics of this ancient science so they can better understand its principles and help to incorporate them in their day to day surroundings.

Ayurvedic Beauty Workshop (1 day workshop on Sunday 18th Aug)

In Ayurveda it’s said you would never put anything on your body that you would not put inside. Our skin is like a sponge absorbing what we apply on it, that’s why it is so important to choose wisely which products we use. Most commercial cosmetics contain harmful chemicals that not only damage the skin and increase the ageing process but moreover they seriously affect our health and well being.

This program explains the danger of chemical ingredients and gives you an alternative beauty care routine that is in harmony with your nature and the environment. You will learn step by step how to easily make your own cosmetics, which balance, protect and provide the skin with the nourishment needed to preserve a natural healthy looking glow.

Homeopathic Consultations by appointment

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which involves treating the individual with highly diluted substances, given mainly in tablet form, with the aim of triggering the body's natural system of healing. Based on their specific symptoms, a homeopath will match the most appropriate medicine to each patient. Easy to administer and with no side effects, homeopathic remedies are suitable for children as well as adults.

At Malvern you will have the opportunity to consult with a registered homeopath and buy simple remedy kits.
