Overview of the Teachings

You may had been told that self-realization is a privilege of a few. This may be, depending on the individual innate tendencies towards his own spirituality. If fact, every human being has the capability to understand the totality of itself. It is however more important to learn to maintain and consolidate the state of realization. Each day of the retreat will prepare the participant’s to learn how to consolidate their own awareness. Silence, contemplation, individual shamanic and ayurvedic work reassure the process of consolidation.

This retreat has a sacred atmosphere where our daily life melts into the cycles of nature with exquisite delicacy and permanency.

“J’ai eu le bonheur de participer à la retraite Sha  cet été, dans un lieu magnifique  en nature, au bord du lac. Ca été un moment riche de  partage humain de par la qualité de l’accompagnement humain et spirituel  de Bhunaneswari et Mathew. Être en retraite avec  eux ,c’est d’avoir l’occasion de s’amener plus  loin, Voir ce qui est là en  pleine conscience pour laisser émerger le Soi .
De plus j’ai apprécié la simplicité du déroulement qui nous as permis aussi de s’amuser, et de nous détendre. Merci!“


Over the years, the Sha retreat has become for me a merging encounter of inner and outer worlds. It is a journey, that allows me to sustain my relationship with the flow of life itself, reminding me that life is forever changing and alive within me on different levels; it is a knowing that I am the  consciousness of  life. I always leave with greater awareness and deeper gratitude.


“Extend my love and deep thanks to you both. You opening and sustaining this sacred land. The logistics were great, even with the rain and absence of the assigned cook. We all managed to pull it together. The process of fasting was very supportive for the body and mind as it prepared us well for the vision quest. Matthew and Berdhanya, I bow to you both, because as teachers, you have a beautiful complicity and I am infused not only by nature spirits but also with you. Your frequency, your presence and all the wisdom that you carry. With all humbleness, I thank you for the experience, as the experiencer is full. The Being, the Now Is. “
