When I feel agitated, frustrated, have pain in my body, or am experiencing difficult emotions, I show up to my yoga mat.
That is when I receive all my best insights.
That is where I am able to tap back into what's really important, make decisions about my business, and receive guidance when I feel at a loss at what to do.
I believe our body is full with wisdom.
We all have a 'highest self' inside who knows the answers. However, we can only access this wisdom when our mind is quiet enough to tune into intuition.
It's so important to listen to what our body is telling us, but often we get distracted. To-do lists, obligations, work, kids, and a busy mind can crowd out the wise-self we all have inside.
That's why Karen Prosen and I decided to devote a whole day to help those ready to tap back into this wisdom.
We want you to reconnect to that wise, centered part of yourself. The part of yourself that already knows all the answers.
We also want to honor and welcome the new season of spring. This is a time to start fresh and release old patterns that are no longer serving us. This is a time to step into a new way of being and living in the world.
We have rented a gorgeous yurt in Occidental, CA for a one-day retreat in honor of our body's wisdom and the new season on Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 10 am - 5 pm.
We are creating an intentional space for an intimate group. I'll be teaching gentle yoga, breathing and voice exercises.
Karen will lead us through meditation and yoga nidra to recede into rest and we will end the day in celebration with kirtan chanting.
For lunch, we have invited Camina Gillotti to prepare an ayurvedic lunch with locally harvested foods.
If you are in need of nourishment, of rest, of community and reconnection to your body's wisdom, I invite you to join us.
The investment is $108 when reserved by March 18, or $188 when you reserve for two.
You can read more about the day and reserve your space here.
And if you're unavailable, or don't live locally, please take a moment to ask yourself, "Do I know anyone in the Bay Area in need of this kind of nourishment?" I invite you to forward this message to him or her.
In love and service, Meredith (and Karen) <3
