BREATH,BODY & OUR DEEPEST NATURE

         Meditation & Embodiment Retreat  December 3-10, 2022 @ Blue Spirit Costa Rica

 

Our breath and body offer potent gateways to our deepest nature - the essence of our being that is inherently wakeful, wise and whole. And yet many of us, are unable to connect with tour experiential body in everyday life. Speedy, modern life styles often lead us to override bodily cues, hunches and feelings. Instead we learn to treat our body like a machine that should function to serve "more important matters" or objectify it into another source of self-criticism and shame. Along with the shunning of the sensual body in many religions or spiritual traditions' misleading statements about "transcending one's body" has led to needless spiritual bypassing and suffering.

This retreat offers a sacred opportunity to gently undo the various trances of disconnect and re-inhabit the intelligent vibrancy of our earthly expression and form.  We will draw from the ancient wisdom of Indo-Tibetan meditation, trauma-sensitive mindfulness, nature-based practices as well as modern Western neurobiology and polyvagal theory. Daily yoga (all levels), conscious breathwork and compassionate community will support our deeper integration. During free time, unwind in the pristine presence of surrounding nature, enjoy Blue Spirit’s white-sanded beach, swim in the Ocean or saltwater infinity pool and be nourished by Blue Spirit's deliciously nutritious cuisine. 

IMPORTANT: The nature of this retreat is contemplative - all participants need to be ready to observe silence for parts of this week, in order to lessen the distractions that stand in the way of deep insight and truly befriending ourselves.
