September 22 - 24, 2023
NEW Friday Start Time
10am arrival and 11am Welcome Circle
Are you ready rest in the silence and bliss of your own inner Being? To reunite with your true soul’s expression and feel your divine connection to all of life? Isn’t this what humanity is truly craving?
We invite you to a weekend immersion into the sacred healing arts of Yoga, Sacred Breathwork, and Sound Healing. These ancient modalities are such powerful healers of the body, mind and soul. If practiced with presence and devotion to your inner Being the gifts of the Spirit are boundless through the allies of breath, sound and movement. In our 8th annual fall retreat, we invite you to give yourself the gift of sacred space where you will meet your Self with deep inquiry and exploration of your inner world, the unconscious mind, feelings, heartaches and dreams. A space where you can dance and stretch and breathe. You will be guided and held lovingly by Ananda, Ashby and Flournoy who combine 80 years of professional healing arts experience. They are devoted to your journey of awakening.
The weekend is a sacred mandala we will all create together with our bodies, our voices and our spirits. By the end of the weekend we will be sharing miraculous inner knowings and breakthroughs that will change our lives forever. As we close on Sunday we will know that the deep currents of divine love and transformation we embraced within ourselves will flow out and bless all of our relations..all of life.
This retreat is a deep immersion. Going inside and being willing to feel and release the old unconscious patterns that are no longer serving you does take dedication and surrender. Please note we will be in our healing practices a majority of the time. Yes, you will have breaks! Just know the focus is on the practices of going inside to receive the gifts. This is a weekend for you to have the support of trained facilitators and a beautiful, sacred space to go inside and get real with your self and go for the breakthrough. We encourage you to really see this retreat as a weekend to dive deep into your darkness and your light. Bringing light to the darkness can be a lot of work, but doing it together in a conscious, loving community is such a gift to the spirit. We can move mountains together!! This weekend retreat is a ceremony of Self Love and Discovery!

About Rebirthing Breathwork:
Rebirthing Breathwork is a somatic healing modality that purifies the physical, emotional, and mental bodies through harnessing prana/oxygen into all of the cells of your body/subtle bodies. Breathing into the heart and opening to receive high frequencies of divine love and divine intelligence just by circular breathing is quite an experience. As you surrender to the breath you are taken on a journey into whatever part of your Being is ready to be excavated and healed. As years or lifetimes of pain and suppression of feelings unwind from your energy body your physical body can experience many sensations. You may feel intense vibrations, pressure on your heart, tightness in your hands or get very hot or cold. All sensations are symptoms of healing! The body has great wisdom and if we listen and allow and trust our bodies and spirits during the process of releasing it can be a blissful experience even in the intensity. Breathwork opens the gate to your unconscious mind where our wounds and traumas and ancestors live. In this sacred space within your Self you are able to transform your perspective and see from a higher place. You are able to receive information and self understanding about your patterns of suffering and your truest dreams and creative aspirations. You receive so much deep energetic healing on all levels including your nervous system. The breath teaches you to surrender to life and all of who you are in the moment. When this space is attained during a breathwork session miracles of healing wash through your system like a cleansing river of grace.
