Raffle to support Ratu Bagus Ashram is planned too (so you can bring extra funds for that and donate items for a raffle). Night bonfire is possible pending weather conditions. … Those, who like to swim, can avail of that in the nearby lake)

… 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.

… This is going to be very special, no doubt  ! … We now finally have our new hall/taman ready with newly tiled floor space accommodating 25-30 people.

Description of the venue and surroundings:

Group sessions take place in the Octagon (8-sided building) or in the ‘Ark’ for bigger number of people. We may sometimes begin sessions outdoors too, on the gravel.

We are located in the countryside, in quiet location surrounded by nature. You can venture in our 4.5 acres of gardens, labyrinth, stone circle, polytunnel, meet the donkeys or visit a small forest, and a lake nearby. … Geo-dome in the process of construction.

We have been doing these retreats at Karuna Flame Centre since 2012, seeing them growing from strength to strength, accommodating ‘veterans’ and new-comers.


Simple accommodation in rooms with 2, 3, or 4 beds per room.
And we will soon also have special attractions, affording an opportunity to sleep in a Native American Tipi tent (for up to 5 people) + 2 spaces in a spacious, luxury tent with wood-burning stove – perfect for the summer time and earthy, close to nature experience.

NOTE 1: Choice of accommodation is given on ‘a first booked first served ‘ basis.

NOTE 2: If anybody wants to stay a day or two longer, this can be arranged.

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.

Being here you can easily experience peace, refuel, detach from stress and deepen the connection with your Inner Self. When venturing outside of the retreat venue, you can walk in the quiet countryside and experience the panoramic viewpoint at Wynne’s View. Venture further for a plunge in Lough Gara . For those who want to stay a bit longer, there is also an abundance of ancient megalithic sacred sites in the vicinity open for exploration, inc. Carrowkeel ‘Megalitic Tombs’ meditation chambers, Drumanone Portal Dolmen , crannogs , St. Attracta’s Well and 2500 years old Fort.

If you travel from outside Ireland, the closest airport is in Knock (40 min away by car) – with the flights to UK.


DECEMBER 2019: Maybe Shaking Retreat in Lanzarote!?  – please let us know. This has to be planned in advance, and we need to get numbers to make it happen.

3 day Shaking mini retreat in the end of December in the island of Lanzerote if energy will support this.

We have already been there and found a possible venue. It is beautiful there and inexpensive. Whole island is volcanic, pure air, mountains, close to ocean, blossoming nature and peaceful atmosphere. … Few people already said they like this idea of having there a group shaking event and a holiday before Christmas. Flights from Ireland to Lanzarote can be only around 100 euros. Sounds very accommodating.

Please help us to spread the message of Ratu Bagus Shaking Yoga by joining our Meditation Group on MeetUp platform and confirm your attendance:

Event is also posted in online Network Magazine

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):

If you want to have an in depth training and direct experience with master Ratu Bagus, than also visit the Ashram in Bali. There is the hub of the Bio-Energy meditation
