Portals Into Awakening Retreat: Exploring Creative, Meditative, & Somatic Expression in the Jungle

March 25, 2023 - March 30, 2023

Life constantly gives us opportunities… So often, our conditioning urges us to “dismiss the nudge”. Stepping into the wildness of a new environment is often exactly what we need to move ourselves in the direction of healing, aliveness and empowered change.

Sometimes, we need a sort of intervention or dramatic upending of our daily routine to make the space for some new opening, perspective, or deep relief. Finding the strength to fight our habitual dismissal of life’s little (or sometimes big) nudges is just the intentional movement away from the stronghold of our patterning that can open a portal for a shift in perspective — allowing profound healing to arise.

Portals into Awakening, my upcoming beautiful San Pancho, Mexico, offers a space for exactly this kind of shift. The work of meditative practices is always ultimately a movement toward our own essential nature. Spending time outside of the patterns and habits of our conditioned worldview can break through our cycles and allow what needs to come through the opportunity to do so. Retreat provides us the space for simply being and settling into our true nature; actually experiencing ourselves as the vastness of possibility that we most essentially are.

This retreat invites you to explore your inner and outer worlds in an intimate setting through meditation, movement, yoga asana, and writing practices to take us deep into our creative essence. And, we get the benefit of doing this deep journey work in a place with rich cultural ceremonial traditions and practices of healing. We’ll explore our inner work with the support of a temazcal (traditional sweat lodge), the heart-opening powers of cacao, and the unparalleled healing of being immersed in nature. So join us next month in exploring creative, meditative, and somatic expression in the jungle.

This retreat will be extremely intimate, with space for only 15 people at the lodge. There will be opportunities for individual check ins with me for each participant. If you feel the nudge, don’t dismiss it! Sign up now to secure your place.
