Lotus Heart Centre

The property is located at 448 Old Wooler Rd., near the town of Brighton Ontario; only 8 minutes north of the 401 in the scenic rolling hills of Northumberland County. The land consists of 20 acres with walking trails, a small pond, a few freshwater springs, and has an oversized in-ground pool for those wanting a refreshing swim.

The Lotus Heart Centre is open and available to all individuals of diverse religious or spiritual backgrounds and traditions; for those seeking a spiritual path, and for those who have yet to realize that they are seeking something, “That” something which is already within their Being: their own “True Nature.”

The Lotus Heart Centre is also a place for those who simply wish to get away from everyday stresses and need a peaceful environment to rest, relax, and rejuvenate at the level of the mind, body, and soul.

The Lotus Heart Centre is a member of the Hridaya Yoga family of meditation centers opening in various countries around the world. Hridaya Yoga and meditation classes will be offered on a weekly basis to guests and those from the local community who wish to attend. Hridaya Yoga lectures and retreats will also be held on a frequent basis; the dates will appear on our events calendar.

The yoga hall, guest rooms, and wellness spa are modern, spacious, and provide an excellent atmosphere to allow the Heart to open, the energy to flow and transformation to occur.

The Lotus Heart Centre offers accommodations for bed and breakfast, yoga and meditation retreats, workshops, and special events. There are extra rooms available to accommodate larger groups if required.

The meals are strictly vegetarian; vegan or raw food meal plans are also available. For those wishing to host their own event or program the center is available for rent, with or without a meal plan. Alcohol, smoking, and pets are not permitted out of respect for others.

Italy

The Inner Peace Sanctuary Tuscany

The Inner Peace Sanctuary was created out of a deep love for being at home with Silence, Stillness, and Nature. Tucked away deep in the magical forests of Tuscany, the Sanctuary is an ideal intimate yogi refuge and an environment facilitating a deepening of mindfulness, awareness, and one’s resting in the “ease-ness” of their True Nature.

The Sanctuary is an over 200-year old typical (and incredibly charming) farmhouse, offering facilities for practice, including a separate, specially designed Dark Room available for solo retreats of varying lengths.

The space holds a maximum of 15 people, in both private and shared rooms. It offers cozy communal and practice spaces, gorgeous views of the valley below (all the way to the sea—50 km away), a beautiful spiritual library, vegetarian/vegan meals to write home about, and an abundant fruit and chestnut forest all around. 🙂

For many years, founders Arpita and Arjuna ran Mahadevi Ashram in Guatemala, and have recently transitioned back to Europe. It is their heart’s joy to facilitate a culture of connection and community, so the Sanctuary holds communal evening activities: wood-fired Finnish sauna nights, spiritual home cinema, kirtan, and more.

Trips around gorgeous Tuscany are also available as the Sanctuary is only an hour away from Florence and Pisa, with many gorgeous Tuscan Borgos (fortified hill towns) nearby.

Our Offerings Include:

  • Hridaya Silent Meditation Retreats
  • Hatha Yoga courses and retreats
  • Dark Room Retreats (for advanced individual immersion of shorter or longer duration)
  • Bhajan and kirtan circles and immersions (mantra singing)
  • Karma Yoga opportunities (one-month minimum commitment)
  • Workshops and special events

Hridaya Northwest

Hridaya Northwest is dedicated to offering silent retreats and Hridaya-inspired spiritual teachings to awaken the Spiritual Heart. We offer three-, four-, and five-day Hridaya Silent Meditation and Yoga Retreats seasonally in the beautiful Pacific Northwest (May, September, and New Year’s).

Retreat leaders Grace Bryant and Dianna Heston have over a decade of experience supporting silent retreats and leading yoga and meditation. Our retreats hold participants in a container of loving silence, guided teachings, and practices to awaken the Spiritual Heart, daily meditation, and meditative yoga, all designed to connect you through body, heart, and mind to your deeper Self.

A silent retreat is a kick-start to profound transformation, slowing down, and learning how to enjoy every minute of life. A retreat is for anyone craving time to themselves, inner transformation, and to experience what meditation can bring to their life. It sets you up for a committed personal practice and a road map to letting go.

Practices are accessible for beginning and experienced meditators alike. You’ll learn how to listen to deeper parts of yourself with daily yoga, meditation, breathing exercises, daily life contemplation, spiritual curiosity, compassion, and intentional integration.

You can find information about upcoming retreats here and yoga classes here.
