Costa Rica Retreat: December 5-12, 2015 Blue Spirit, Nosara

Join us for a journey through sound, movement and breath as we collaborate to bring you the highest vibrational healing:  Daily Dharma yoga, crystal bowl sound baths, purifying pranayama, meditation, Qi Gong, footsteps in the sand and the resounding intelligence of nature all around.

Costa Rica captured my heart after taking me in and revealing a magical, yet attainable wisdom resting in the land herself and the people with whom are native to her grace. 

After living there in 2012, I return each year to share one of the places that shifted my perspective forever. It is a joyous honor to collaborate with Ayi Wong, Michael Mayzel and Saraswati Om to offer you your own experience;  to connect to your highest form through sound, movement, nature and breath. 

Yoga and Sound Alchemy Retreat

Can we create conscious change? Yes. So becomes the question, how?  Many are there techniques to dissolve impressed patterns, traces of our environment and experience, to reshape our current realities and feel more kind, energetic, attentive and clear. It is possible to be content most of the time.  In this retreat we share our practices and rituals, those that elevate and support our highest existence and bring more joy and love into our lives. We combine the vibrations of nature, Dharma Yoga, Qi Gong, Alchemy Crystal singing bowls, gongs and chimes to penetrate through our often protective veneer beneath which, lies subtly. In subtle spaces we can experience our own uniqueness and divinity and it becomes obvious again that all life is connected and synchronized; that above all else we are to be kind and live happy and memorable lives. Reminders always welcomed.  Register. 

"hOMe is where the heart is" and often times life is too full to remember to look there for what you may feel missing. All is within. This week of retreat is your opportunity to repave the path there and let your memories preserve it.  Weave the teachings and practices of Sri Dharma Mittra with alchemic sound vibrations cocooned within the context of Costa Rica and your insides will be oozing out of you! The land alone ignites while the practices continue to brighten the light of life.  You may be "going away" to Costa Rica, but you are headed hOMe.
