The Joy, Ease and Delight of Being Spring Meditation & Yoga Retreat
With the support of yoga postures, pranayama, restorative poses, yin yoga, meditation, silence and unstructured time in nature, this yoga retreat will be an opportunity to experience and explore the peace and joy of being.
Most of us lead very busy lives. Demands of work, family and the complexity of simply living consume most of our waking hours. From early childhood we’ve been conditioned to achieve, improve and generally be more productive. Modern life with computers, cell phones and convenience food further feeds our addiction to a fast-paced life. While much of this activity has value, it can become unbalanced. There is little time to understand the art of being.
Much of what we “do” is an attempt to find wholeness, fulfillment, satisfaction and peace in our lives. When this “doing” is out of balance with “being”, the more we do, the more we seek, the less peace and fulfillment we experience. In our hearts we know that true happiness does not come from doing more or having more things, but we need to periodically pause and take time to reset our priorities and connect with our being.
This three-night yoga retreat and meditation begins with evening meal at 6pm on Thursday, May 3 and ends at about mid-morning on Sunday, May 6th after a morning session and a late breakfast.
This retreat is for those seriously committed to the work of self-transformation. It is not a spa or vacation. The use of electronic devices is prohibited. Participants must place their cell phones and electronic devices in the retreat office the first night of the retreat and remain at the facility for the duration of the retreat.
