Anuttara is a collective of yogis, meditators and spiritual aspirants that offers the opportunity to internalize truth into daily life through spiritual study and retreat. This is made available through retreats , trainings, programs and living a spiritual life at Anuttara. These offerings always involve a harmonious blend of
the ancient teachings of the East and West.
Anuttara has been built out of love and in devotion to our teachers from various traditions. Anuttara is open to and draws its teachings from various authentic traditions of Tantra, Taoism, Advaita, Vedanta, Kashmir Shaivism, Buddhism, Christianity, Bhakti, Seva and more.
Anuttara's founders & owners are Emily (Artemis) Doyle and Thomas (Bhairav) English. It is their continued work as students of these great masters that keeps their work fresh and inspiring for all who attend. Anuttara is also made possible through the commitment and dedication of a small handful of seekers who come back every season. Learn more about our community here.
Although Anuttara travels the world facilitating retreats and yoga trainings , Anuttara’s main location, Anuttara Ashram, is an off-grid centre in the mountains of Northern British Columbia, Canada.
In our modern societies, there has been a global shift away from the necessary connection with the spiritual component of the human being. Leaving the spirit of our being neglected, and withering in an unnourishing environment.
It is also believed that it is no coincidence that this loss of a deeper connection within ourselves coincides with the loss of connection with Mother Earth. When given the opportunity, nature works as a supportive guide, mirror and healing modality.
Anuttara was built on the premise that there is a need for people to not only rediscover this integral part of themselves, but to live in a space where they can cultivate and grow into a more authentic being living in lasting happiness.
You can not evolve on the journey without Honesty; it is the beginning of the process of awakening of loving consciousness, the beginning of Awaken Love within us. When we have the courage to look at our shadow, that is, to what prevents us from loving; when we recognize and acknowledge our negative feelings, and become more transparent in our relationships, we inevitably move towards love.
It is the base, the central column that supports the transformation. We focus on remembering we are where we put ourselves. This remebering is the end of the blame game. You discover that the root of the conflict is within you .
Kindness involves empathy, compassion and patience. We are very critical of ourselves and others, and so we become cruel. The kindness makes the most comfortable and pleasant life; it is the first fragrance of loving consciousness.
The journey is challenging , it's a battle that is fought inside and outside of us . Hence the importance of dedication, because to devote oneself means constantly renewing our vows with the purpose of the journey; it means always remembering, rebuilding and continuing our work. Dedication is synonymous with direction: You focus and you perform. This is one of the greatest powers of the human soul.
The essence of this revolution we propose is service, because it is the very manifestation of loving consciousness in the world. By donating your gifts and talents to achieve this purpose, you find your place in the world, and automatically become a happier and more successful person. Service is synonymous with selflessness, which is synonymous with pure love.
The concept of beauty has been very distorted by the advertising industry, so there is a misunderstanding about the role of beauty in this movement. We are proposing a reinterpretation of this concept: Beauty is an expression of the essence that dwells in us. Beauty is a fruit of love, of waking consciousness. All values flow into it, both in its perception and in its manifestation. To express the values, you become beautiful, and becomes a source of inspiration and reconnection to others.
