Yoga & Recovery on the Farm with Taryn & Dawn

July 09, 2017 - July 13, 2017

CONNECT TO SELF (CARE):

Could you use a time out to reconnect, re-fill, and rekindle your own sense of inner peace? Or are you searching to step into a fuller, more connected, brighter version of yourself? Are you a strong and courageous woman in recovery (we are all recovering from something) looking to deepen your connection with nature? Are you looking to relieve stress, access your heart, refine your listening and care deeply for yourself?

Join 20 like-hearted women for a long weekend of yoga, radical self care, female energy and joyful connection. Stowel Lake Farm is an organic farm on beautiful Salt Spring Island just half an hour by ferry from Victoria, BC. Healthy gourmet meals and two Hatha yoga classes per day will benefit both body and soul.

This will be our fifth (?) retreat at Stowel Lake Farm. As will all of our retreats, we will create a sacred, restorative space for healing and practicing radical self care. Swimming, hiking and exploring all that this beautiful island has to offer can be part of this long weekend for those who so choose, other women will simply want to stick close to the farm and spend their sacred pause resting and relaxing.

Entering the Heart with Igor Kufayev

June 20, 2017 - July 04, 2017

No matter how clear is the grasp of Ultimate Reality on the intellectual level, it is still a concept. It is for that reason Perennial traditions speak of merging into the Heart, for it reconciles the seer (subject) and the seen (object) into Oneness – as natural a state as Being itself.

Beatific or terrifying, all experiences rise from and merge into that sphere where perception is in the molten state of pure potentiality. Our perception is at its utmost refinement when the creative tension between our awareness and pure potentiality is in perfect alignment. That alignment is represented by union of Stillness and Movement, and spontaneously takes place in the Spiritual Heart.

 The heart region is associated with many functions, and often serves as a metaphor for feeling, emotion and intuition. However, the Spiritual Heart, is not the physical heart, nor is it the Anahata chakra, the energetic wheel, but the abode of Consciousness Itself.   

 Entering the Heart – as most explicitly spoken in the traditions of Sufism and Tantra – is paramount to direct realization of one’s essential nature, for it allows Seeing through the Heart. Here perception reaches its spiritual maturity, undisturbed by fluctuations of the faculties, and refined to the point of Oneness. 

 The Heart is the seat of Vital Force contained in perfect equilibrium; direct apprehension of the Supreme Essence is fully cognized here. From here it emanates as Universal Love, and finds its expression on all planes. The Heart is the eye of Non-dual Awareness which beholds all creation with an equal vision. From here all perceptions ebb and flow as waves on the sea of infinity.
