An Ashram Experience in Ireland
Visiting an Ashram in India has become popular in recent times. More and more people are looking for meaning in life, in work and in relationships and for a way of slowing down and finding simplicity and peace in their lives.
An Ashram is a place where people of any faith, gender or nationality can stay, practice meditation, mindfulness and yoga, and take an inward journey under guidance, so as to reconnect with themselves and their spirituality. Spending time at an Ashram offers solitude, peace, and time out in community, to reflect while also benefiting from various spiritual teachings in a setting that is close to nature.
Ashram comes from the Indian Spiritual Tradition. There are over 150 Christian Ashrams in India. A person would go to an Ashram to be immersed in Spirituality, Meditation and opening oneself to the experience of God. For the past few years an Indian priest called Fr Korko Moses S.J. has being coming to Ireland to make an Ashram Experience available to people here. Korko lives in India where he founded, Dhyanavanam, an Ashram inspired by Christian & Eastern spiritual traditions. Fr. Korko is unable to travel this year for the scheduled An Tobar Ashram experience due to the Covid -19 situation in India therefore the 2021 Retreat will be facilitated by David Halpin along with a team who have worked with Fr. Korko both here in Ireland and in his Ashram in India for many years.

An Ashram experience is an opportunity for participants to ask the deep and meaningful questions of life. A time to rest to find or rediscover direction and meaning. An Ashram attracts a great mix of people from different traditions. Reflection and spirituality are needed in life, so that human beings can develop wisdom.
A typical day in an Ashram involves exercise, several sessions of meditation, deep relaxation, prayer, wisdom teachings as well as silence and reflection. Nourishing vegetarian meals are provided throughout the retreat. While there is an opportunity to reflect on the experience of each day with participants and the Ashram director each evening, the rest of the activities of the day are done in silence and an atmosphere of silence is cultivated at the center throughout the time of the Ashram.
An Ashram experience will take place in the peaceful setting of An Tobar Retreat and Spirituality Centre, 3 miles outside of Navan. Set amid 25 acres of walks, woodlands, lake, river and gardens in the tranquility of rural county Meath. The centre has been tastefully renovated with all en-suite bedrooms.
