May I be a place of refuge, a sanctuary, shelter in the storm. – Shanti Deva’s daily prayer
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. 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."
Dive into a regenerative retreat to align yourself with the emergence of spring. 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 and our workshop meeting space will become our "living flow ashram" where you can choose your daily rhythm.
• Daily regenerative prana vinyasa flow yoga for fluid strength, flexibility, unwinding of tensions, and creative flow
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. In this intimate ritual of renewal, we will create an arc of prana vinyasa, meditation, and massage to open to the emergence of new life as we experience Esalen's fertile land as a sacred place to listen, pray, and align with our soul's rising.
