On this retreat, you will be staying in a kasbah and a desert camp located in the middle of Erg Chebbi's dunes which are provided by Sahara Yoga. The camp has solar electricity, running water, tents with beds, shelters, camp fire, hammocks, and a gong for the morning yoga wake-up call.
The tents in the desert camp consist of sheep and camel blankets as walls, carpets on the sand, iron beds with good mattresses and woolen blankets, so everything is taken care of. The yoga mats and sleeping bags can be laid extra.
Singing together is probably one of the oldest ways to get together and be easy. All levels are positively touched with joy, lightness, openness, and connectedness that arise quite naturally. With the mantra and kirtan singing, you will experience a unique journey based on an ancient tradition. Let yourself be enchanted by the wonderful music that invites you to meditate, sing along, and dance. This creates a special spiritual experience that you can use to unleash the old, heal the wounds, and embrace the new you. These particular sounds are the silence and expanse of the Sahara Desert.
Deep in our heart and belly is a voice that should be released and heard. It is a gentle voice away from the noise of everyday life that nourishes and protects you. It is the voice of your soul and you can have the courage to follow it like a pilgrim and express it since every human basically wants an open canal and with all its cells, organs, and bones to be alive.
On this retreat, you will be guided by Sundaram by using kirtans and mantras as a tool to bring you into resonance with your heart. This is the way you open your heart and come into harmony with nature because devotional singing of spiritual songs is the language of the heart that everyone can understand.
How does true devotion sound? Anyone who listens to Sundaram's voice thinks he knows. His mantra singing unfolds a transformative force that touches the soul and opens the heart. Sundaram's pure voice takes his listeners on a voyage inside, leaving a deep joy and peace there that continues to be felt for a long time after the tones have subsided.
Sundaram's music builds a bridge between different traditions. It is often quite simple and succeeds quickly in an easy way. It is in the simplicity and prolonged repetition that there is the possibility of an immediate experience of the power and beauty of the mantra. You will be able to perceive a support and security to experiment with your own voice. Mantra singing, together with Sundaram's clear and pure voice, is touching and moving at the same time, like a breath of the wind in the desert that caresses the soul and inspires to dance.
The yoga practices on this retreat will also bring you in touch with yourself. In doing so with mantra singing, you will enjoy a deep relaxation and hold the asanas effortlessly. The affirmations will intensify the spiritual and energetic effects. You will feel the music with the whole body - flowing, lively, and natural. It is not about keeping the yoga looks perfect, but much more about feeling inward, letting go, letting yourself be carried by the music, and creating a space for your encounter with yourself. The stories, meditations, and explanations of the mantras will expand your knowledge and understanding that can be integrated into your own practice or teaching.
You will fly to Casablanca before continuing the flight to Errachidia. Upon arrival in Errachidia, you will continue down into the desert region and oasis in Merzouga. On the way, you will pass through small kasbah villages and beautiful palm trees. You will stay overnight in a kasbah on the edge of the desert.
After the morning yoga, you will take a tour of the oasis and be entertained by the Oussidi family with a traditional Berber cuisine in their house. Afterwards, you will visit the children's aid project in Merzouga. In the afternoon, you will ride camels to your camp in the dunes and leave at sunset. At the camp fire, you will enjoy the millions of stars.
The subsequent days will be full and yet so empty. The desert invites you to give yourself a chance to feel, be silent, and listen to your heart. Between the daily yoga lessons, you will enjoy the peace and wideness of the Sahara and the loving care of the Oussidi family.
After the morning yoga in the desert, you will return with the camels back to Merzouga. In the kasbah, you will have the day at leisure before practicing yoga together for the last time in the afternoon. You will have dinner and stay overnight in the kasbah.
In the very early morning, you will be transferred to Moulay Ali Cherif Airport (ERH) for your departure flights.
Sundaram was trained as a classical musician at Musikhochschulen in Würzburg, Frankfurt, and London. Over fifteen years ago, he came into contact with the clarity and beauty of Indian mantras and bhajans through his yoga practices. Sundaram's music is a bridge between Indian and European music, between Vedic and Western traditions. The effect of the mantras can be so easily and directly experienced.
