Living from our Sacred Self
October 13 – 19, 2018
Meditation & Yoga Retreat
Rolling Meadows
Brooks, Maine

In this Meditation and Yoga Retreat, through the practices of meditation, yoga asana, yin yoga, pranayama, meditative movement, yoga nidra, breath work, restorative poses, self-inquiry, silence and free time in the natural world we have an opportunty to more clearly see the conditioning that does not serve us.  

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.” Rumi

As awareness increases we naturally enhance our relationship with our true Self. We will leave the retreat with an increased sensitivity to the “field” Rumi speaks of so that we may bring this awareness into our daily lives, greeting whatever arises in our life more often from our natural, Sacred Self rather than our conditioned egoic mind.

The purpose of spiritual practice and teachings is to help us find freedom from the limiting habits, patterns, behaviors and beliefs we have absorbed from our culture and families so that we may live from our true self – our Sacred Self.

“Meditate on the Self as being
Vast as the Sky,
A body of energy
Extending forever in all directions –
In the embrace of infinite space,
Awaken to your True form,
Divine creative energy
Revealing Itself as you.”  -Vignana Bhairava

“Now is the time to understan” d that all your ideas of right and wrong were just a child’s training wheels to be laid aside when you can finally live with veracity and love.”  Haifiz

“You are unconditioned, formless, unfathomable, imperturbable awareness: so hold to nothing but consciousness.”
Ashtavakra Gita – Ch 1, V1
