Healthy Muesli or Granola Recipe

DSCN1311 - Version 2Healthy Muesli or Granola Recipe

3 cups (300 grams) old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant)
3/4 cup (75 grams) sliced or slivered almonds
1/2 cup (45 grams) raw sunflower seeds1/2 cup (45 grams) pumpkin seeds
1/2 cup (45 grams) of red rice flakes and a teaspoon of sesame seeds
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sunflower oil
1/2 cup (120 ml) pure organic kitul pani
1 cup dried fruits (cranberries, dates, and/or raisins) (optional)

Granola Recipe: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) and place rack in the center of the oven.
In a large bowl combine the rolled oats, nuts, seeds, rice flakes, ground cinnamon, and salt.
In a small bowl, stir together the oil and kitul syrup. Pour this mixture over the dry ingredients and toss together, making sure all the dry ingredients are coated with the liquid. Spread onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes or until golden brown, stirring and checking mixture does not burn every 5 mins or so.  Add the dried fruit at this stage. When it is done turn oven off and leave in the warm oven to dry off for about 10mins.  You will notice that the granola may still be sticky when it is removed from the oven but it will become crisp and dry as it cools. Make sure to break up any large clumps of granola while the mixture is still warm. Once the granola has completely cooled, store in an airtight container or plastic bag in the refrigerator. It will keep for several weeks.

All about our Sri Villas Retreat 19-21 September 2013

 

About the Venue

Sri Villas - the pool

Sri Villas – the pool

Sri Villas is a set of 3 luxurious houses all connected by an infinity pool, with a 180 degree view of the sea.   The sea is so close that the sound sends you into a deep rejuvenative sleep.  Each villa has luxury rooms decorated with a simple but elegant hand, well designed bathrooms and plenty of space to lounge around in between yoga and eating sessions.  Sri Villas gives you the space to just ‘be’ and enjoy the essence which is you.  DSCN2213We indulged in a sea bath each day.   Even though it is the monsoon season, it was just glorious to jump into the waves to have some sun and fun.

About the Retreat

DSCN2230

During the Retreat we delved deep into our minds to teach us emotional intelligence.  Fiona began the work by teaching a very physical kriya to rid us of our body blocks.  Ending the session with writing down our negative mind patterns and learned how to, ‘not react’ or ‘act out’ these emotions but release them through our breath and mentally acknowledge and acceptance that these patterns are a part of us.

Fiona, Shaunagh and Annoushka followed this theme during the next 5 classes.  Linking the right and left DSCN2228hemispheres of the brain so we could be more conscious of our mind and its held beliefs and patterns.  During the morning sesions we experienced long, deep meditations to practice being present and conscious of those thoughts and patterns.  The teachers encouraged all to end the day writing a personal daily journal of ‘how we were feeling and coping with our thoughts and emotions’.  We experienced the negative, positive and neutral minds.  Learning how to feel the discomfort and embrace it to gain release. The final class lead by Annoushka concluded the retreat by doing a deep practice to experience the elementary self, the watcher in us all which is all seeing, completely connected and joyful. Watching the genuine joy of everyone’s faces at the dancing at the end was huge pleasure for all who took part, teachers and students alike.

About the Food

DSCN2247

Coconut, kurrakan and lime cake

Chef German Dimaano and Sumantha prepared us some amazing and unusual foods, using kurakkan (Asia’s equivalent to quinoa), in rotis, coconut & lime steamed cake, and chocolate brownie.  They also used lotus and kolu seed, endemic seeds which have high levels of trace minerals and are a wonderful form of vegetable protein.  The green gram and sweet potato soup left us wanting more. Whilst the Vietnamese rice paper rolls were a real teaser.   Yummy avocado salads with orange vinaigrette, butternut squash stuffed with herbs and organic red rice, tomato salsa and roast beetroot, with a curd dressing were all gobbled up.  The diet was lovely fresh, healthy, plant based foods to support our emotional detox all lovingly made with an expert

Sri Villas Retreat 19th-21st Sept 2013

STILL TIME TO JOIN US FOR OUR SEPT RETREAT

On this retreat will give you the opportunity to give yourself the time to know your shadow and understand negative emotions.   We are not taught how to manage our emotions.  We subconsciously wish to deny, hide or ignore them or unconsciously respond in a knee jerk reaction.  Through Kundalini Yoga and meditation, we can learn techniques to recognise, accept, forgive and release these negative feelings and thoughts, instead of being driven unconsciously by them.

Turn overwhelming feelings and being over sensitive into being able to read a situation and know how to act.

Our program consists of sunset and sunrise daily Kundalini Yoga and meditation classes taught by three different teachers, Annoushka, Fiona and Shaunagh. A Combined with conscious eating and relaxation.

Set by the ocean, Sri Villas is a boutique hotel with luxurious en-suite rooms, an open air pool and beautiful spaces to relax in please see http://www.srivillas.com.  Included in the price is all your healthy vegetarian food and drink which will combine with our program to support your emotional release.
Price for retreat Rs19,000 for 2 nights, 3 days, full board, teachings and en-suite accommodation 2 sharing.
*transportation not included

Sri Villas is only one and half hours away from Colombo and we will start on Thursday 19 September which is a Poya day and end on Saturday 21st September afternoon around 4pm.
If you have any further questions please contact Fiona on 0778011984 or email info@sanasuma.co.uk

The Three Minds

In order to understand and be the master of our emotions we have to understand we all experience negative thoughts and emotions and we all have 3 minds. The three minds are the primary way the mind processes thoughts and makes decisions. Whether consciously or driven blindly by the unconscious.

The three minds are;
· The first mind which is the negative or protective mind,
· The second mind the positive or expansive mind
· The third mind is the neutral mind.

However sometimes the 3 minds can be out of balance, this is when we experience depression, confusion and being unable to solve our problems.
The first breakthrough with dealing with negative or bad emotions comes when you realize the value and functions of the negative mind. The negative minds function are:

1. Protection

2. Finding problems

3. Avoidance

4. Containment or contraction

The more you can become aware of the process of the negative mind and integrate the observer into the process the more you can deal with your negativity and emotions.

When we understand that our emotions of anger, fear, jealousy, bitterness all have a function in our lives, we can then start to accept these qualities of emotions in us and the people around us. This does not mean we have to act them out but just be aware of them within our minds and bodies and learn how to release them.

Human evolution means our negative minds are too strong for us in this day and age, where we no longer have to worry about the basic survival needs, of food, shelter and safety. Therefore we must learn to be conscious of our negative thought patterns. Acceptance of some of the least admirable aspects of oneself is the beginning of the process of shedding the barriers created by our shadow self and development of kindness, caring and compassion.

Learning to accept the sacred origins of both your protective negative mind and hope-filled positive mind allows the neutral mind effortlessly to appear. The neutral mind is the most elusive, yet most powerful of the three. It is the mind that allows us to “see the faults of others and then un-see them.” It is the mind that gives us the vision to see the diagonal solution in every problem. It is the mind that allows us to drop our small experience of self and replace it with the vast acceptance of the Infinite variety so exquisitely expressed at every level in nature.

The neutral mind is cultivated from meditation, practicing consciousness and being present.

It is also developed by our ability to drop all addiction to the positive/negative mind dance of duality, comprised of endless conversations, dramas, arguments and battles, between different opinions of what is good or bad. The neutral mind reminds us about the reality of now and acceptance of what is.

Come to our Sri Villas Retreat to have the practical experience of understanding and coping with your negative mind and emotions.
