Retreat Theme: Mother’s Day Tribute to Divine Feminine (in all of us) For Women and Men
This year’s retreat falls on Mother’s Day, so we will not only honor the Mothers who attend, but also the Fathers and the emerging feminine energies within each of us, and on the planet as well. We will explore balancing our masculine feminine energies, and also learning how to slow down, rest, and love ourselves (Mothers and all of us tend to work too hard!).
What else will we do
Besides twice-daily yoga, we will do some hiking in beautiful, bug-free mountains and forests. We will do some breath and meditation playshops, as well as kirtan (call and response chant-song) to help us connect on all levels.
Kirtan (call and response singing or chanting) is an easy way to calm the mind and access higher energy vibrations. From Peggy Black (channeling The Team): There have been many suggestions and methods offered as to how to access the higher dimensions. We will always recommend the use of sound vibrations. Sounds and sound vibration always alters consciousness. Breath and breathing techniques will allow you to travel consciously, just as meditation and many forms of yoga will support your shift.
The Yoga Lodge on Whidbey Island is a beautiful accommodation with everything we need: yoga space with hardwood floors, meditation spaces, sauna, full kitchen from which we will serve two to three organic meals daily, and access to nature and hiking trails. Wendy is a wonderful owner and host!
You! We usually have about 12-15 people, a chance to make new friends and connect, but also quiet time to read, relax, and rejuvenate. You are invited to do as many or as little as the classes and activities as fits you and your needs.
Teachers, cooks and hike leaders:
Roy Holman: I am a 500 hour Certified Yoga teacher, in the Viniyoga tradition. I teach a safe, gentle, body-friendly, grounded, breath-connected, meditative, flowing traditional hatha yoga – a meditation in motion really. I like to move slow, give time to breathe deeply and savor the poses. I also teach breath-work (pranayama) and meditation, and also try to incorporate the many aspects of emotional healing and balancing I have learned. The meditation is a mindfulness style, with focus on breath awareness, heart opening, body senses, emotional clearing, and connection on all levels (body, breath, emotions, Earth, Spirit).
Liz Gross: “I believe all healing involves alignment of the soul with the body.” Liz is a gifted sound and vibration healer, and teaches with Roy on retreats. Liz teaches yoga, meditation, Oneness and often does some of the cooking on our retreats. “When you’re consciously in touch with the life energy within yourself, you have awareness & communication with the flow of energy that connects you to spirit. I feel very passionate about Vibrational Medicine and love working with others in this way & helping others to connect with their purpose and passion in life. Vibrational Energy Medicine brings the physical, emotional, mental, & spiritual bodies back into balance, which opens the way for rebuilding the healing systems of the body.”
