During this 4-day Waitangi Weekend Wisdom Retreat, we will focus on precious wisdom passed down through the ages in the form of the scripture, ‘Patanjali Yog Darshan’.


We will study the 8 stages to Samadhi (liberation from suffering). This roadmap is a guide to clarity of mind. When followed one overcomes the pitfalls of clouded perception.


1. Yam: Evolve conscientious external behaviour.
2. Niyam: Cultivate inner restraint.
3. Aasan: How to be comfortable in meditation.
4. Pranayam: Regulate breathing & master the body’s subtle energies.
5. Pratyaahaar: In-draw the senses to stillness.
6. Dhaarna: Build concentration in the mind.
7. Dhyaan: Meditation – effortless transcendence.
8. Samadhi: The realisation of true freedom.
