Coming Home To Yourself: Retreat, Unplug, Unwind, Find Bliss

March 14 to 21, 2020 at Haramara, Mexico

Retreat Leader: Julia Hollenberg

You’re invited to a week of retreat from the stresses of every day life. We will create the space for you to experience the expansion of time and a potent reconnection to Being itself. We humans too often operate in a state where our true nature is obscured by a mountain of daily tasks, the numbing attachment to tech devices, the pursuit of material security and achievement, our nervous systems on constant high alert from bombarding stimuli. We are tossed by the waves of emotions and trapped in a hamster wheel of worries and “should’s.”

This week is about allowing your mind and body to unwind in a profound way; and sinking into the peace, joy, and contentment that arise from contacting your ever-present and vast nature as Being. Experience the power of your breath, the medicine of movement, the beauty and mystery of the tropical jungle and the pacific sea, the levity of play time and new adventures, and the healing nature of a yoga community. You have everything you need inside of you already to feel joy and contentment and bliss. Come home to yourself and let these qualities radiate.

Coming Home To Your Body, Your Heart, And Your Innermost Self

May 16 to 23, 2020 at Haramara, Mexico

Retreat Leaders: Jennifer Sinor and Chantel Gerfen

Sometimes we must go away to come home. When our lives become busy, our days seemingly too short, our patience limited and our vision diminished, often the only way to restore our center is by stepping away. Ironically, it is in leaving that we can return to our deepest selves, the quiet that is always and already there, the home of our unbroken heart, which is both our birthright and our good fortune. There is no better place to come home than Haramara where the green of the trees and the blue of the sky remind us of the beauty both within and without. During this week, Chantel Gerfen and Jennifer Sinor will lead you back home, home to your body, home to your heart, home to your innermost self. That home, that place of safety and joy, already exists within each of us, but all too often we forget. Emails arrive, kids clamor, the proposal is due today. It is hard to feel at home when the world around constantly calls for our attention. And that is why me must leave to return. In addition to three organic meals a day, a beautiful swimming pool, and free time to sit on the beach or walk to the small town of Sayulita, each day will offer a vinyasa practice in the morning and a restorative practice at night. Daily writing will allow individuals to fully inhabit the openings created in the physical body through asana practice, and guided meditations will help reveal what we already know to be true. The final day of the retreat will be held in silence so that our deepest work can be done. You will leave on Saturday restored to your body and your heart and more than ready to return home again, in touch, now, with the joy-filled home within. We invite all seekers, all levels of practice, all those who are tired of living only in their heads to join us in Haramara and come home.

Retreat Leader: Erin Carney and Liz Andolong

Erin and Liz invite you to a week on the coastal Riviera Nayarit, near the fishing village and surfing town of Sayulita.

It has been described as the place “where Robinson Crusoe meets Architectural Digest.” This setting will serve as the backdrop where we will rediscover the tools to awaken our inner healer and empower ourselves to live the fullest lives we are capable of. As women, we know how easy it is to take a back seat in our own lives, oftentimes without fully realizing it until we experience physical, emotional and/or spiritual burnout. Liz and Erin have both experienced the depths of burnout and have walked through the deep questions of “who am I as a woman” and “what do I have to offer this world?” They have spent years doing, as Paulo Coelho calls, the good work: committed to not turning away from the discomfort and growing pains and malaise and instead, excavating and diving into the struggle, gaining powerful tools along the way to help them reclaim a sense of self and purpose in this fast-moving world.
