What if the Openness, Clarity and Love that we have been waiting for is already available – closer than our own breath?

Innocent misunderstandings, cultural indoctrination or trauma can lead us to believe that we are inherently deficient or unlovable. As long as we don’t examine these erroneous trances with compassion, we tend to look endlessly for love and completion in all the wrong places.

Join me and a safe community of liked-minded women and men to see through and undo the old trances of I am not okay, not enough, unlovable - so that the ever-present ground of true Being can inform and permeate our daily lives. Through a wise blend of meditation, experiential inquiries, psycho-spiritual integration, restorative practices and safe community, we will guide ourselves back to the natural intelligence and unconditional love of our Heart-Mind.

The nature of this retreat is mainly contemplative - and all participants are asked to observe silence for parts of this retreat in order to lessen the distractions that often stand in the way of deep insight and truly befriending ourselves.

Daily Yoga (all levels) and mindful movement practices are offered in support of deeper integration.

During your free time you can enjoy Blue Spirit’s white-sanded beach, swim in the Ocean or saltwater pool, unwind in the pristine presence of surrounding nature and nourish your body with individual body-work sessions and Blue Spirit’s gourmet vegetarian cuisine.
