In 2017 we will continue this combination with Angela McGee teaching the Yoga.

- Welcoming ceremony with a local priest;
- the making of traditional ceremonial puja offerings to take to the local forest temple;

- a night of Joged Bumbung dance; and
- the full Joged Bumbung dance includes at least 12 musicians and 2 dancers.
Insight Meditation, known as Vipassana in the Theravada Buddhist tradition engages in the practice of ethics, mindfulness, depths of meditation, opening of the heart and wisdom teachings. Insight Meditation allows a deep inquiry into this unfolding life, with all its difficulties and joys. An inquiry into our relationship to what arises in our day to day; be it pleasant or unpleasant and the freedom that is available when we bring understanding and awareness to each experience.
Angela McGee began Yoga teaching 23 years ago after training in the Sivananda tradition. Shortly after she came across the teachings of Krishnamacharya and studied in Australia and India with Krishnamacharya's son, T.K.V Desikachar. Angela believes the ancient wisdom teachings of the Yoga Dharma are completely alive and relevant to contemporary life and to freedom and liberation.
Angela teaches Yoga therapeutically with an emphasis on one - one teaching, discovering how Yoga can fit the individual rather than the individual fit the Yoga. She also teaches in corporate and community settings and has trained and guided teachers and leads a sangha in the Krishnamacharya lineage.
Alongside her Yoga path, Angela is also a Dharma teacher in the Insight Meditation tradition.
