“Join our annual Thanksgiving retreat to tend your heart fire as the center of wisdom, soul satisfaction, and most of all the transforming power of love,” writes Shiva Rea. “For many years, we have retreated to the warm springs of Esalen during the Thanksgiving weekend for a ritual deepening and renewal of the heart fire. This popular retreat always changes and yet is constant in the regeneration of the ‘body of love.’”
See and taste the flowing One through your whole being.
Feel the Holy Spirit moving you within the flowing fire of the One.
– Mechthild of Magdeburg
“We find the spring season, with its power of emergence, in the very nature of our own bodies, and also profoundly mirrored in the mythic landscape of Esalen,” says Shiva Rea.
“Dive into a regenerative retreat to align yourself with the emergence of spring,” says Shiva Rea. “Reconnect with the rhythms of nature through the fluid yoga of prana vinyasa, massage, meditation, and movement meditation forms including the ancient art of kalarippayatu. The healing grounds of Esalen, the sweat lodge, and our workshop meeting space will become our ‘living flow ashram’ where you can choose your daily rhythm.
