Diwali is a hugely popular holiday celebrated in the Eastern world by Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains, but the spirit of ‘The Festival of Light’ shines all over the world. Diwali symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. The celebration occurs every year, reminding us that life is an ebb and flow; though there’s always work to be done, we have to consistently have faith in the good of humanity in order to progress forward as a human race.
Light is a metaphor for knowledge and consciousness.
Darkness and struggle are usually followed by transformation. We cannot transform without going through a period of learning. Learning is not always easy. Those who learn with intention and perseverance gain knowledge and strength to move past some of the things that have held them back.
In other words, getting past your old demons takes courage, determination, and intensely focused self study. People who do this over and over again are usually the ones who take action and change the world little by little, choice by choice, modeling what it’s like to live in their truth and inspiring others to follow suit.
Diwali reminds us that there is light - a light within each of us, a light that connects us, a light that continues to shine in spite of all the hardships. The festival helps us to tap into that light and to not only share it but also practice acknowledging it within other humans. Perhaps even those whose light is so small, you can’t even see it. It takes truestrength to do so…
A Bright Sweet Celebration
What can you expect to see during this celebration? Fireworks, beautifully decorated homes, gatherings, gifts, incense, candles, candles, more candles, and of course… all the sweets. Even more, Diwali is something you FEEL: the kindness, the love, the connection, complete trust, creativity, followed by… the ultimate surrender. It is something we, as people, can only hope to hold on to in all of our pursuits.
A retreat that not only happens during Diwali but also embodies its decadence. Through the practice of yoga, meditation, and cleansing breath work your own light has no choice but to shine brighter. A true transformation.
You will lose your grip, in a good way. Then, you will truly enjoy the gifts of the incredible country of Nepal; the kind people, the soulful food, and scenery that will take your breath away. You will come home with new knowledge and perspective - something you can integrate into your daily life.
