Daglio – A fantastic Meditation Camp for Young & Old

Find Inspiration Everywhere

After two weeks of my stay in Cabella, I spontaneously decided that I’d go to Daglio. I only had about 1 minute to decide, but I knew I was up for an adventure to unfold. The view and serenity is unimaginable.

Someone even told me that Shri Mataji Herself said that it really was like Dharamshala. At Daglio, I taught music, mostly the harmonium and some new bhajans, and also Nature art. It was simply art, but only using things you found outside in the wilderness.

Slideshow with Nature & Bonfires from Daglio:

In music the kids learned some easy bhajans like Ganesha Ganesha and Om Bhur Buva .

Two songs that they really loved were Bathe in the water and Raining on the rock (an Australian bhajan I’ve learned at Cabella few days earlier  from my new friend Praveena).

Whenever they would practice or sing them at the meditations, it would spark up so much joy.

Unfortunately (for me), or fortunately, it would usually start raining after each song was sung.

In nature art we built people out of wood, nuts, leaves, flowers and whatever else we could find outdoors.

It really got the children in touch with Mother Nature and awakened their creativity even more.

Shri Ganesha made of 4 Cabella river's stones - Nature Art at Daglio

One day, one of the girls found 4 stones in the Cabella River that made a faultless Shri Ganesha .

They fit in together so beautifully.

What I really loved about Daglio was that I felt like a little child again..

I could play and hide in the forest, climb up trees and tree houses. I felt young again (not saying that I’m not young).

I did feel like I was in Dharamshala again.

I really hope more people in America know more about Daglio, because it is a fantastic camp for young and old.

Article and Photos were provided by Abi from Burlington  that is 15  and who loves practising Sahaja Yoga meditation.

Dharamshala is in India at the foothills of Himalaya and there is an amazing school where children meditate and sahaja yoga meditation is part of their education.

Shri Ganesha –  described as a child with an elephant head that is one with the subtle energy divine principle/deity that is rulling over Mooladhara (our 1st)  chakra and  who represents the perfect innocence  and the always present child within us.

    Was fortunate to stay there during Guru Puja 1995. The place is tailor made for yogis to meditate. Fits so beautifully with one’s idea of a ‘retreat’ – in the midst of Nature in all it’s splendour with Mother’s Love providing the unadulterated Blisssss…
