We invite you to experience a self awakening, master retreat nestled in a private, verdant garden in Rancho Santa Fe. We will dive deep into yogic and expressive art practices for personal renewal, therapeutic healing and the opportunity to reconnect with our authentic, joyful, enthusiastic selves. No experience is necessary and all are welcome.
The topics of impermanence, self-judgement and attachment will be at the forefront of the weekend, and will be explored through dialogue and guided meditation. They will be woven into our yoga practice and free-form expression on the canvas, which will act as a mirror of self-reflection. These tools will allow us to renegotiate our relationship with fear and reconcile past experiences in a visceral, powerful and embodied way that reaches well beyond words. All meals and art supplies are provided.
