Residential Workshop in
These two days won’t be your regular healing retreat where you will feel all happy in and after 2 day would be back to the “reality”. These two days we would do the real deep shit cleaning. we do real inner work here baby!
And you would go home learning the tools that can be practiced for a lifetime.
My goal is to help you see beyond your bullshit and the lies you have been telling yourself around why you are stuck. I want to guide you to be your own “guru”.
The probable reason why you might not be able to go deeper in your journey is that you are using the mind to resolve the traumas which is a good approach but should not be the only approach. The traumas sit deep in your subconscious and in your body. In this workshop we will work on a somatic level to bring out the suppressed emotions and give them space to integrate.
The life that you are currently living has much more capability to be open to receiving more love, abundance and joy.
The blockages in our minds and bodies stops the flow of smooth workings. The disconnection from our emotions not only stops us from feeling negative emotions but also the good and the happy ones.
Even if sometimes we tries to connect back to the pleasure and joy of our bodies, we are met with resistance and challenging emotions . We become confuse as to what needs to be done with them. How to make space for these emotions and most importantly how to just be with them.
I am teaching various ways to make more space for these difficult emotions in our bodies. This helps in accepting yourself as you are. Radical acceptance is a game changer my friend. It’s the medicine that most of the human kind requires at this time. We waste most of our time in judging, shaming, fixing our selves and get stuck in this loop of finding faults and fixing them.
Most of these voice that we hear in our heads are not even ours. But we are able to discern only with a calm mind.
Calm mind can be attain with being present. The simplest way to do that is bringing your awareness to your body. You can not be present and be in the mind thinking thoughts about future and past. When you are present, you simply are.
Another thing that I am teaching in this workshop is safety and nervous system regulation. It’s very important for us to feel safe in our being. When we are feeling safe its easier for mind to let go. A relaxed nervous system opens the mind and we welcome different and new point of views. This helps you open your perspectives and let you chose better and more valuable point of views.
I am teaching various ways to calm regulate your nervous system through various embodiment practices.
We will use following tools to work though
The rational mind sometimes stops us from tapping into the deep hidden emotions. Breath work bypasses the ego/conscious mind and taps into subconscious and brings the real issue out.
Breath is a wonderful tool to help you release the hurt of forgotten trauma which might be running your life.
Body has its own wisdom that is forgotten in the world of mannerism and sophistication. Have you observed a child “sobbing” which he cries. Sobbing enables a particular movement in the body around the chest area that moves the emotions like fear , grief etc from the body. And after a while the child is okay and may be smiling. Many times we were stopped to sob and the emotions got stuck in the body. Conscious movement therapy allows the body’s intuitive wisdom to take over and move the stuck emotion.
Conscious Body Touch
We crave the touch of our parents, lovers, friends , siblings when we are in pain. The touch somehow calms us. We can activate the similar feeling through self touch and self affection.
Pleasure is a great tool to bring back the safety in the body and help you relax the nervous system. One of my major works around sexuality is to help women pleasure themselves . This helps in letting go of porn addiction. This also aids in Self soothing, initiating the inner healing, understanding oneself more, self acceptance, etc.
Using the help of self sound to activate the parasympathetic nervous system.. The parasympathetic nervous system predominates in quite “rest and digest” conditions. This helps you bring safety to the body. I use this major tool of sound to help women give voice to their pain and joys. This opens the throat centre and helps you further in opening the heart.
Other tools that we use are dance, shamanic meditation, hypnotherapy and a lot of laughter.

Sharnga Guest house
About the stay
Sharnga is a “forest” guest house under a lush canopy of big trees. As you walk around, you are in the midst of a lush, green, natural garden. The birds, butterflies, fish, horses, dogs, bugs, and micro-creatures also share this home, this living environment with us humans. As most animals and insects are shy, and seasonal; one does not always see or meet them, but if you are quiet and/or lucky, you might be privileged enough to meet one or more of our co-inhabitants. Some have joined us by being chosen, and brought home (pets) but many simply found their way here through the abundance of nature, and decided to stay, much like the people residing here today.
First 7 participants: INR12,000
Last 3 : INR15,000
The cost includes stay and food for 2 days and 2 nights.
