THE VENUE

Our venue is in the rolling hills around Glastonbury Tor, with just a 30 minute walk to arrive at the peak, which assures that we will be staying in the grounds of the Holy Isle.

Paddington farm house is a rustic and cosy accommodation that has an inside communal lounge area as well as gardens, open space and forested areas. We held a retreat here 10 years ago, and appreciated the community vibes and good intention of the Paddington Farm charity, which generally provides a place for children to access natural and animals.

She will be offering a sacred fire in the tradition of the first nation peoples, with cedar collected from the forest in Avalon. The cedar in this ancient tradition is the carrier of our prayers, therefore we will have a deep sharing circle with songs and kirtan led by Draupadi, so we can really reach deep in our hearts and express prayers for our loved ones and for humanity.

TESTIMONIALS

“Satya Loka represents the true connection with the ancient wisdom. In the most respectful way,
Satya Loka is giving us a chance to merge with the tantric traditions. Radasi’s path of devotion and service is her honest lifetime mission and a source of guidance. She has the ability to reach
people’s shadows and pain on a soul level and bring them to light in a very healing way. She has my respect because she walks her path while embracing her full strength and feminine essence.”

Petra Shakti Kaur, Czech Republic

“I got so much more than what I came for. So much depth and guidance can only come from teachers with so much experience in their own spiritual path. Radasi is not just a Yoga teacher but a spiritual teacher that carries a lot of wisdom. This TTC was not only about learning about Yoga and Tantra, but an intense spiritual journey for my soul, and maybe that’s what it is all about. Learning about yourself, practicing what you teach.”

Hanneke Laaning, Netherlands

“When I met Radasi I understood what was the path of Shakti, of love, of passion, of devotion. She is teaching me how to be truly in my feminine power and at the same time realize that the real Self is beyond gender limits. How to welcome and experience all the arising emotions and be still. How to build my life the way I want to see it and totally surrender to God. How to walk the Path remaining a woman. Just being around her is a great opportunity to learn, let along teacher trainings where she gives 100% of herself, and inspires so powerfully the lives of those who are ready to take it, to change dramatically.”

Kat Sukh, Russia

“The sacred wisdom learned here is beyond any book knowledge. You get the full experience the tools, support and space to be. The teachings learend here are those looking for a full experience of transformation. This month will never be forgotten. A one of a kind epxierence. I recommend all of Radasi’s courses and have trust that she is a channel providing all that one would need.”

Ariana Karim, USA

“No price can be put on the end result; a phenomenal shift in my perception. Through participating in this self discovery course with Radasi, I have learnt more about myself than ever before, found a new found love for the internal and external worlds, and as a consequence of this I feel radically more confident in my own skin. After completing a teacher training two years ago and not having the confidence to teach, I am now happy to say I am teaching regularly! Eternally grateful.”
