In the midst of the cold dark winter we will explore the benefits of darkness and shine light inward. Our Healing Restorative retreat will include an alter with candles and salt lamps. We will explore the power of Mantras and learn how to incorporate them into our daily lives.
The Tantric philosophy, which Hatha (translation sun/moon) yoga is based on, focuses on embracing all sides of life, the light and the dark. The premise of the non-dual Tantric philosophy is that we are not separate from the Divine, but rather are one with it, and therefore any experience we should face, no matter how difficult and painful, is a divine experience to be embraced as an opportunity for growth and learning. Sometimes at the darkest moments in life, in the depths of vulnerability we find exactly what we need to heal.
“It doesn't matter how long we may have been stuck in a sense of our limitations. If we go into a darkened room and turn on the light, it doesn't matter if the room has been dark for a day, a week, or ten thousand years - we turn on the light and it is illuminated. Once we control our capacity for love and happiness, the light has been turned on.” Sharon Salzberg
For the majority of the retreat, you will be supported and bolstered in restorative yoga postures on a mat. You will be encouraged to completely surrender. The only "hard" work you need to do, is to completely let go, and open to the powers of your organic life flow that resides within. No yoga experience necessary.
