We have found that the format of meditation, yoga, movement, self-inquiry, pranayama, breathwork, silence and unstructured time in the natural world creates an environment conducive to dropping the details of daily life, releasing patterns of the past and opening to the embodied state of Divine Love, our True Nature. Uniquely all the practices enhance physical, mental and spiritual well-being. The emphasis then is placed on Awareness and evolution of consciousness. With this in mind, the retreats specifically focus on personal transformation. Anyone interested in a spa-type experience is advised to look elsewhere.
Yoga sessions include classical hatha and vinyasana, yin yoga and restorative poses. We encourage fluid movement and personal exploration in the yoga classes to cultivate an internal reference point.
Pranayama brings awareness to the breath and increases the availability of Prana, the life-force.
Movement explorations allow for slipping thru the cracks of our conditioning, experiencing a different vibrational energy, to directly embody Essence and True Home.
Breathwork is a dynamic practice for releasing, purifying, healing and attuning with Source. Bridging the conscious and subconscious, conscious breathing is one of the quickest ways to personal transformation, enhanced well-being, and the direct heart-opening experience of Divine Love. It is a profound part of the retreat process.
Self-Inquiry is an opportunity to awaken to the truth of who we are. The embodied recognition and experience of long-held patterns of conditioned behavior lifts the veil that keeps us from the peace of our true nature.
Meditation periods are approximately 20-30 minutes and draw on the Vipassana and non-dual traditions. Guidance will be offered in breath awareness and in open attention with the focus to relax and simply be with what is, as it is, without manipulation, so that we may come to rest in the natural state of awareness.
Silence is a practice of letting go. It is a practice of emptying out so that we can be open to what is wanting
to emerge. Silence opens a pathway to know who we truly are beyond our limited concepts and identities. Silence reveals or our True Self.
