We are also planning a raffle. Proceeds will go to support Ratu ashram in Bali. We donate jars of calendula balms and a special prize of a GIFT VOUCHER to the value of 60 Euro towards the cost of the next retreat ; you can also donate different goodies of yours to this raffle.

… Feel free to contact us much in advance if you feel like giving us help with preparations a day before the event. Karma Yoga (selfless work) can transform you.

Comments from the retreats:

Mini retreats at Karuna Flame healing centre allow for a much needed break from everyday stresses. It helps me to reclaim my spirit in a safe healing environment with the bio energy of Ratu Bagus shaking yoga. The support of the group energy helps to unblock and bring to your awareness where the blocks are in the body. Through a safe and sometimes tough process that can continue after you leave. It is very comforting to know that if you have concerns you can contact Kris and Karen at Karuna Flame. I hope there are more retreats throughout 2016 and beyond. OSRB

I accidentally came to a bio-energy meditation retreat during the summer & it was the best thing I could have done! It truly is amazing & Karen & Kris are exceptional facilitators. I’ve been back since & plan to do the next retreat also.

    Energy transmission: Shaking is described as a bioenergetic meditation made possible by the transmission of energy from Ratu Bagus – energy master. This calls upon our own energy system to remember and awaken the natural capacity our bodies have for healing. Put simply, you quite literally shake to release any blocks – mental, physical, emotional – which stop the energy that flows inside us all. Acupuncture aims to do this with needles but, while that technique is a passive process, with shaking you are actively healing yourself. Testimonials from Ratu’s students make for extraordinary reading. He has helped people overcome drug and alcohol dependency, battle stress and heal all kinds of illnesses.

    Energy transmission can manifest in the form of light orbs (youtube):

    These retreats give us a great opportunity to come together and experience group healing and introduce the kundalini practice or to further our progress. If you want to have an in depth training and direct experience with energy master Ratu Bagus, than we also encourage you to visit the Ashram in Bali.
