Life Passage Ceremonies and Retreats

Rajyo facilitates Life Passage private and group ceremonies and retreats. Each are individually designed and tailored. They are powerful ways to consciously navigate major transitions in one’s life.  She is dedicated to providing meaningful rites of passage ceremonies to support individuals in releasing outmoded habits of the ego-mind, and gaining perspective as you embark into a new phase of Life.  In a true Rite of Passage, the following elements are needed:

  • safe and sacred container and context for the initiation, to help you step into and embody a deeper sense of wholeness.
  • Genuine sovereignty as a whole person with an expanded Identity beyond the small self and into the grandeur and mystery of the Soul.
  • The initiate claims a deeper sense of purpose and meaning which supports them to bring their own authentic gifts to the community.

Life Passage ceremonies and retreats bring you into a deep encounter with yourself and the truth of who you were born to be.  A Life Passage is for you if you are going through a life transition, turning point or crossroads—and you are calling in an expanded and fresh way of being in the world.

Are you ready to be more truly yourself? Ready to grow a greater sense of belonging and self-worth? Ready to find your Soul’s deeper purpose and direction in life? Then join us for a Life Passage ceremony or retreat.

Meditation Retreats

Here you have an opportunity to return home to yourself, beyond the mind and circumstances of your life, and take time to rest in the natural great peace of our own True Nature.

In inner silence and stillness we may glimpse a truth larger than our self-definitions allow; the simple joy of our inner Being. In this place of pure presence, we find Truth, Peace and Love. On this retreat you will experience a real and tangible way of connecting with the hidden essence of who you truly are; our Buddha nature or our Christ consciousness, our own diamond like True Nature, which is most often buried beneath the noise and numbness but is always available to us.

Meditation retreats with Rajyo offer a structure within which you feel held and guided, with periods of both Yin and Yang yoga, chi gung, and other chi enlivening and energy enhancing physical practices.There will be some sharing and inquiry practices to help uproot some of the habits of distraction and delusion. There will also be periods of silent sitting, and quiet time in nature.Rajyo believes that with personal introspection and relational interaction, we can enjoy a balanced and harmonious retreat, tending to our human need for both aloneness and relationship.

Rajyo has 40 years of experience and training as practitioner and teacher of many kinds of meditation, and is also qualified as a Yoga teacher in various styles. She brings a contemporary and embodied approach to support others in quieting the mind, opening the heart and listening to the voice of one’s own soul. She helps people find their own unique doorway into the inner realms, where truth, love, peace, joy and true fulfillment lie.

Stop The World – Personally-Tailored Private Retreats

In these turbulent and uncertain times, the tendency is to run faster to try to figure out or fix our lives on the surface level, whereas what is needed is to process, evaluate and return to balance within. In our fast-paced busy and distracted modern life it is such a rare thing to be able to take time and space to really listen to oneself, tending to the more subtle layers of our Being. That is why Rajyo offers these personally-tailored retreats for you to have all the time and space you need to rest, relax and rejuvenate your Soul.

Here you can stop, let go, rest, receive and reconnect with who you are and what you need. Be supported in tending to your deeper personal needs of self-care, reflection, and inner work. Stop The World retreats offer an opportunity for you to truly come back home to yourself.

Rajyo believes in an intelligent, heartfelt approach to health and well-being that encompasses physical vitality, emotional happiness and spiritual growth. Here you can explore the core question of how to live as a human being in better health, balance and harmony. We address burnout and exhaustion, emotional imbalance, depression, grief, relationship issues, childhood wounds and life transition.

Together we design the retreat, with as much quiet time as you need to be alone, and as much time spent with Rajyo as you need to feel fully held, supported and tended to on all levels—physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually

How it works

Following an introductory consultation with Rajyo, you will be invited to your own private accommodation, complete with fresh flowers and fragrant candles, to commence your specially designed program. Here you will find a welcoming and warm sanctuary for your soul. Your stay with us is treated as strictly confidential.

You will receive three nourishing meals a day that are both tasty and healthy. Your chosen menu is freshly prepared for you daily.

Your personal program is designed, providing counseling, psychotherapy, trauma healing and other modalities. Wellness treatments such massage, yoga, breathwork, transformational coaching and nutritional advice, further support your healing.

Woven in between the various sessions is time for rest and reflection: opportunities to simply stop and regain perspective. Your retreat starts when you arrive and continues after your departure with a follow up care program.

The cost of your personal residential program includes your private accommodation, healthy meals prepared fresh daily to your menu and your daily treatments. As Programs are tailored according to needs, these costs can be variable. Our recommended minimum stay is three days, but we offer up to 7-day retreats.
