Karmic Yoga Retreat

 

Are you in a position to make a true impact in your world?

One that will last beyond your lifetime? 

Join us this November 15-21, 2021 in West Africa, near Buduburam refugee camp, in Kasoa, Ghana.

Are you ready for a life changing experience? Have you always wanted to travel to Africa? Volunteer with children of all ages? Give back to your global community? 

All while having the opportunity to practice daily yoga asana, meditation, and dive deep into spiritual connection and conversation? Then this may be the perfect experience for you! 

-----

As we prepare to return to Buduburam refugee camp, in Ghana Africa, we are thrilled to open this experience to a small group of committed and hardworking individuals, who feel the call within them to be more and give more.

What exactly is Karmic Yoga?  It is defined as "selfless action performed for the benefit of others". 

Each year Wholesome Alchemy will be offering 1 karmic yoga retreat, held near one of the schools we have helped support and/or open. Giving our community an opportunity to works HANDS ON with the students and individuals that we serve.

----

Every now and then life presents you with a once in a lifetime opportunity.

A once in a lifetime experience where you get to make a true and meaningful impact in the world. In your world. Where you get to give back and be of service to others. Allowing deep healing to take place within each of us as we return to our truest state as beings of service, creating good in our world.

Let us promise you something, you will receive more than you could have ever imagined. 

The first day that you walk into school, with a hundred children waiting to meet you, your heart will fill to a level it never has before.

As you receive hugs and laughter and love, on a deeper level than you may have ever known. Where lots of little hands will be touching you because they have never seen someone that looks, dresses, and talks like YOU before----all they want is to connect. 

Everywhere you go, you will have a little trail of god beings following you because they just can not get enough of you who are, exactly as you are. When you look into their eyes all you see is gratitude, love, and curiosity. 

You will remain a part of these children's experience for the rest of their lives. 20 years from now, you will still have a place in these children's hearts. Why?

Because you cared.

Because you traveled across the world to be of service to them.

Because you showed up for them when the rest of the world would not. 

------

How do you feel about making that impact?

Our karmic yoga retreats are not for everyone and we do not want everyone. Only a special someone can do this kind of work. The level of responsibility required to show up each and every day to simply give, is not within everyone (at this point in their lives). 

Is it within you? 

We want people who we can trust to truly care about another more than themselves. To give back in a way that they expect nothing in return (even though you will receive in a deep way). 

Every person attending must be exactly the kind of person we need.

Are you the person we need?

  • Not afraid to open your heart
  • Able to listen with everything you have
  • Willing to do anything asked of you
  • Willing to work hard even with the hot African sun consistently saying hello
  • Able to move beyond your own experience to serve another
  • A true giver
  • Willing to get dirty (because we can promise that you will)
  • Respectful
  • Patient (As it will take time to adapt to the language barrier)
  • Willing to work your booty off for an entire week to serve these children for the rest of their lives

**A key focus of this retreat is planting outdoor gardens at one of our locations to ensure a lasting supply of food for our students**
