Alchemy of the Heart: Yoga Practices for Transformation

Mar 18 - 23, 2018 Begins in 3 weeks
with Pete Guinosso

Connecting with our hearts can change the way we interact with the world. During this workshop, you can find yourself on a path towards radical spiritual presence and tap into the transformative aspects of yoga asana and philosophy. Break out of the all-too-common tendency to focus on what is wrong with our bodies, lives, and the world. Face the challenge and build skills to manage momentary (and sometimes prolonged) feelings of worry, anxiety, and depression. Each day will include a mix of intensive vinyasa yoga classes and process work.



We offer a rich and varied integral learning environment devoted to cultivating deep change in self and society.


Experience twenty-seven acres of Pacific coastline paradise.

A global network of seekers devoted to the belief that we are all capable of the extraordinary.
