Ashrams, Donkeys and Dogs Barking – Retreat in India

In December 2014, I was lucky enough to travel to India with Tam from Yogaphysio Brisbane and some other yoga teachers and friends to the Anandamai Ma Ashram in Omkareshwar, India. We completed 9 days in silence during our 12 day stay in the Ashram. What an experience! The ashram has a busy school attached to it, kindly patronized by some European disciples of Ma, and is a busy working environment. It was a happy alive place full of laughter and good cheer. An ashram is not necessarily a place of calm and quiet but is certainly a place of spiritual retreat. The Ashram itself is situated on an island in the middle of the holy Narmada river which is a popular sacred bathing site for Indians. W
