March 2018 Equinox Retreat

Sanctuary in Sacred Santa Fe
March 16 – 21, 2018

I invite you to join me here in magical Santa Fe, New Mexico—the heart of the mystical Southwest—for a deeply transformational journey of intense inner work and profound openings into new vistas of expanded awareness.

This intimate 6-day retreat, aligned with the powerful currents of the March equinox, is an opportunity to come together with like-minded souls from around the world, who like you, are ready to take advantage of this sacred time to dive fully into a new level of consciously embodied awareness in a setting that is nurturing, supportive and quite sumptuously beautiful. Everything we do during this retreat will be held within the context of finding greater alignment with the radical changes that are taking place NOW—in consciousness, in embodiment, in humanity’s relationship with the cosmos—in fact, our entire experience of reality.

We are most fortunate to spend this precious time together in an exquisite local retreat space, Rass Mandal, which is Lakshmi all the way—beautifully appointed and impeccably maintained. yet comfortable enough to invite us into states of relaxed openness and intentional grace.

Each day we will spend our time together meditating deeply, sharing insights and experiences, processing powerfully and enjoying the healing balm of nature. Our retreat space is situated in a mountain range of pine forests with exquisite views where we will be able to take delicious walks along the hiking trails to immerse ourselves in the beauty and wisdom of nature that is so readily accessible here.

Between the gorgeous yoga pavilion, heated swimming pool, hot tub etc. we will have ample opportunity to move, stretch, relax, and rejuvenate our bodies with movement, yoga, swimming, etc — activities that further conscious embodiment. This physical component is also quite necessary to effectively move the energies that surface when we dive deeply into expanded awareness during meditation and when uncovering to resolve polarized structures in consciousness while processing.

2018  is absolutely calling us to finally recognize and honor our bodies as they were intended; amazing vehicles designed with the capacity to fully express and experience luminous, awakened consciousness in every particle of every cell. This is the year for those of us who wish, to fully embrace a path of conscious embodiment and enjoy its fulfillment as cellular illumination.

2018 is also calling us into a much deeper and far more profound, direct dialogue with Source in every moment—Actualizing Oneness. Discovering ways to develop and embody this state is something that I have been fascinated by for some years now, and I am looking forward to sharing what I have seen and experienced with all of you as we explore this newly available dimension during our discussions.

These are some of the themes that will weave throughout our time together. It will be a powerful time of deeply restorative and uplifting inner work, supported and surrounded by great beauty and seriously amplified by the equinox energies.

Retreat Logistics

Retreat begins on Friday, March 16th with check-in during the afternoon. We’ll have a brief orientation at 6:30pm, followed by a welcome dinner at 7:00pm.

A daily schedule will be sent to you after you have registered, but each day we will meet for two sessions, with optional early morning yoga (except Saturday and Tuesday), and an evening meditation prior to bedtime.

Our final evening is Tuesday, March 20th, which will be a special equinox gathering around the fire pit—weather permitting—or the one of the beautiful indoor kiva fireplaces.

The retreat ends on Wednesday morning, March 21st with a final session at 9:00am before departure, with a farewell lunch at “Cafe Fina”.

Special Outings

On Saturday and Tuesday mornings at 10:00am,—for those who are interested—we will have an opportunity to attend a Yoga Class with Conscious Embodiment Yoga Master, Sean Tebor. His approach to yoga can only be described as life-altering. He is s soul brother whose approach to all aspects of conscious movement aligns with everything that I have to share with you, so the opportunity to attend two classes with him (alongside yours truly) is a very special gift. For those who are not interested in this, the approximately two and one-half hours will be available for you to spend as you wish—resting, swimming, hot-tubbing. walking in nature, journaling, meditating. etc—your choice.

We will also visit the world-famous Loretto Chapel. In the heart of historic downtown Santa Fe, it attracts people from all over the world who are curious about the revered, “miraculous staircase.” The chapel is a historic phenomenon that contains a unique mystical frequency, as the site of an acknowledged miracle. Meditating here is spectacular and not to be missed. So we will definitely set aside time for this extraordinary experience.
