Saturday 7th March 9.30am – 3.30pm at Russell Vale Community Hall
Join Mantradharma/Alison MacTaggart for a day of being in community with others who are moving into or living in the 3rd stage of life. This phase is known in the ancient yogic philosophy as Vanaprastha or Forest Dweller – the time when a person retires to the forest and gradually gives up worldly life and focuses on their inner, spiritual world. Of course, for those of us living in modern times, it is not feasible or desirable to fully retire from life. This workshop will focus on how we can integrate our intentions to focus on our inner needs while maintaining a commitment to our external obligations.

The day will include:
· Overview of all the stages of life
· Specific focus on yogic philosophy about Vanaprastha
· Guidelines that arise from the wisdom of the ancients and how this can inform contemporary approaches
· Sharing our own experience and ideas with others.
You will leave the workshop:
· feeling inspired and motivated to live this stage with intention;
· with ideas on how to attain your personal aspirations in a way that blends with your current life;
· with a deepening connection to others who are living consciously.
Mantradharma has experience living as a Vanaprasthan both in the community and at an ashram in Australia. She made the decision 7 years ago to give up her home, possessions and worldly engagements to go and live a simpler and less cluttered life at Mangrove Mountain ashram. She has recently returned to living on the far South Coast of NSW and is re-establishing herself in community life while aiming to put into practice the insights she has gained while living at Mangrove. This has inevitably brought new challenges. Mantradharma is dedicated to sharing her insights with others and to inspire them to live more simply and consciously.
