Retreat Details

You  don't have to be a Buddhist to benefit greatly from Buddhist psychology  and practices. Even though the Buddha lived and taught over 2000 years  ago, the human plight (read: mind) hasn't changed that much, meaning we  can reap the same immense benefit from practicing that he did, and which  eventually led him to become awakened.

Buddhism  is not something to believe in, it is something to explore for  yourself. Come see how these practices can help you lead a happier,  kinder life. Good for you, good for others.

In our experience, yoga asana practice is often the ‘gateway drug’ into  other aspects of yoga, that have even greater potential to change your  experience of life.

We  start by getting out of our heads and into the body. Then we move into  concentration and contemplation practices. The idea is to actually show  up for our lives, the way they are unfolding moment by moment. Here and  now. And in the process becoming less anxious and less self-absorbed.

During  the week we’ll practice vigorous flow yoga and meditation in the  morning. The afternoon sessions will change from day to day. Sometimes  we may practice yin or restorative yoga. At other times we might listen  to, and discuss Buddhist teachings, or have longer meditations or  group/partner work.

We'll have scheduled silences. Digital detox is highly encouraged. So is journaling.
