Join veteran teachers, Amy and Shannon, for this deep dive into practicing self-acceptance and whole-hearted compassion.
Start where you are: vulnerable, stunned, confused, delighted, sad, frustrated, joyful. All of these places are on the human map and mapped on the human heart. You are exactly where you need to be. “What?” you say, “how can that be?” Well, it’s true.
There are times when the fabric of the self feels worn, even torn apart. With the practices of breathing and intention, we can bridge the body and mind and mend that fabric. We can reconnect to our innate wholeness and heal ourselves.
Come to retreat to befriend the parts of yourself that stumble in the dark, to be steadfast in the face of what is, and to remember your inherent goodness. Bring your full and patient attention to the present moment, and learn to meet all aspects of your experience with loving kindness.
On Whidbey Island, surrounded by trees and sky and water, we will breathe together to remember our wholeness and move together to celebrate the beautiful bodies we live in. Experience both active and restorative yoga classes, contemplative silence, guided meditation, and delicious organic food.
Let this moment be enough, and remember that you yourself are enough, are everything, are a wonder.
