Shekinah Yoga Retreat Centre is situated on the side of Chalice Hill, and it has been a hub of activity in Glastonbury since its inception as Shekin Ashram in 2003.  It is a philanthropic project and acts as a space of sanctuary for many. It is a place of retreat and celebration both peaceful and dynamic, the ambience here is homely, relaxed, grounded and is focused on living consciously, peacefully and truthfully. This is a place to take rest, reflect and journey deeper into your spiritual practice. As a spiritual community, we hold a sacred space, created away from the world where individuals come to both cultivate and draw upon spiritual sustenance. The Retreat is now run by Kamala Priya (Clare Belmont), with the support of Elahn Keshava and Gisela Lirusso, and a great team of residents, Jaya Shree, Krishna Charan, Samudra and Davy and a devoted group of volunteers. There is a friendly, devotional atmosphere where work is treated as meditation and selfless service is used as a spiritual practice.
